Charming hotel just the Gran Place.
The check in was pretty late at 15:00 but there were plenty of places nearby to grab a coffee, bite to eat or a glass of something stronger.
The staff were lovely, Linda in particular (the Spanish receptionist) deserves a special mention. Had a smile for everyone and was a real joy to chat with.
My only real criticism would be of the shower/bathrooms.
Our shower was literally over a wooden grill which meant that the water got everywhere. As we were constantly mopping up, this meant there was a lack of towels.
Ideal location for wandering all over this marvellous city. Would definitely stay here again.
