Having decided to stay the night in Jerez, I then had to decide whether to pay the average going rate of about 45 to 50 for a basic single room, or to risk not getting any sleep and choose a Pension or Hostal. I researched the situation and found this Hostal was very well placed just up the road from the Theatre & Post office and withing a few minutes walk of the shopping area and restaurants. With some trepidation, I booked a single room and got a rate of 25 Euros for the night. I thought that this was too good a bargain to miss so when I arrived I asked Monica at the reception desk (who spoke good English) if perhaps the double room with large bed would be more comfortable for my stay. I was thinking of sometimes when a single bed feels just too small. I was offered a Double for 35 euros and asked to see it. Room 120 was on the first floor (the Hostal has 3 floors plus a sun deck roof area) and had windows overlooking a passage, and the main bedroom window overlooked the central courtyard area and had a wooden slatted blind. I was immediately impressed with the size of the room and the height - I did not feel ´cramped´at all. The bathroom was very clean and came with all the necessities and had a small corner shower. The bed linen was fine and so I took the room and managed a very peaceful sleep. Another plus point at this Hostal was a fridge in the central lobby which stocked water and beer plus soft drinks, and you could ask for a hot drink. Breakfast is no problem in a place like Jerez which has a wide selection.
Would I stay at Las Palomas again ? Certainly world.
The building itself is styled on a typical ´riad´style found in Morocco where the rooms face onto the central courtyard although in the case of this Hostal, there was no centrally positioned water feature. The only possible downside of this type of building is that you can experience noise as there are echoes, however, my sleep was peaceful as I mentioned.
