I stayed here with a tour group which came and went from this hotel so I ended up staying in 3 different rooms. Each room was of the same standard. They weren't amazing but they were above average. In saying this, it was a much nicer hotel than where we were staying previously. The noise levels vary depending of if your room backs onto the main street. To get away from this ask for a room of the 3rd (or 4th) floor- we only found out about these floors on the last stay here.
The rooms were clean and fairly spacious. There is a lovely courtyard where there is access to WIFI, although it doesn't reach the rooms. The bathrooms and good althought the addition of fans (if allowed) would make them better.
The staff was great. Always a friendly smile and laugh if you did something embarressing because your spanish wasn't great (or you are just occasionally very stupid)!
The location is one of the best aspect of the hotel. It is ocated in Old Town/ the historical centre and just by that nature is near almost all the museums and churches.
On the downside, the included breakfst was scrambled eggs and croissants every day. Not that this is a terrible thing, especially as you could easily order a small variety of other things if you wanted. If they wanted to improve soemthing, this would be it. Just by adding some fruit would make it better.
