Hotel Coso Viejo
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Antequera
Reviewed 9 September 2011

We stayed there just one night and I suppose we received a transit room. It was tiny but nice, the bathroom spacious enough and clean. The hotel is very well located, in the center of Antequera. The only minus was that it was very noisy, I suppose that the walls are very thin. The old receptionist is grumpy and unfriendly. The breakfast is ok.

Reviewed 30 April 2010

My husband and I stayed for one night March 2010 in a room on the 3. floor (2. floor in Spain). A double door with a "French" balcony opened up to the plaza and the view of the hill above.

The interior of the hotel is very tastefully done. Our room was very nice (if a little small) but with a large bathroom which I particularly loved - the bathtub, the warm, glowing colours, the choice of tiles and the attention paid to the details.

Everything was new and sparkling clean. The curtains were competely dark (no light shone through). The windows were tight. I always travel with earplugs, but no need here. Even if it was Friday night and a football match in town, we slept like logs.

We found the reception staff helpful and considerate. (A little Spanish goes a long way.)

We had breakfast in the hotel, although not included in our deal. However, we found the food, the service (even if they were nice ladies) and the breakfast bar a bit below the general standard of this hotel. The spacy lobby with its light, the beautiful tables and surroundings would have given the day a perfect start. A point for improvement?

We did not find the lack of parking a problem. You can make a short stop in the plaza in front of the hotel if you wish. Or if you have light luggage, it's just as easy to go directly to the car park in the centre (the hotel offers a discount if you pay the fee in the hotel).

Once you've walked the little distance between the car park and the hotel, you are right in the middle of the sights of Antequera. Maybe with the exception of the Dolmenes (the megalithic monuments) which are probably best reached by other transportation.

After you've climbed the hill to the Alcazaba and the Colegiata church, and enjoyed the sights and the wonderful views, you can relax with a refreshment at the Bodega Escribanos.

To sum up - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the hotel very good value for money.

My wife and me stayed in this hotel a couple of weeks ago, and we were a bit disappointed with the staff…specially at the reception. Their level of English is poor and they should be more attentive with the guests… On the other hand, I must say that the waiters at the restaurant were much nicer.

The hotel is located in a beautiful square which is a bit noisy, I must say.

The building is very beautifully decorated.

Well, on the whole, I’d say that it’s OK.

We stayed three nights for a family visit, and were looking for a nice, clean and rather functional, hotel. In that sense it met our expectations fully. For a 3* hotel, it even had bathroom amenities, which I wouldn´t expect in Andalusia. Staff all very friendly and helpfull.
But on the other hand there were small things that gave the impression that they don't pay attention to details: through the on-line booking site we asked for one big bed for two, and they gave us a room with two. This is not so bad, but on top of that the bed linen didn't fit on the bed, so you were feeling the mattress after 5 minutes sleep.
The hotel is new ,so I guess those are all small details that will be corrected when the hotel get's really going with the high season, and considering the price (47 € b&b) it was really a bargain. The views on the medieval kind on square with the castle-ruins on the hill top are great by the way!

This is a central hotel located opposite a lovely square. Nice terrace in centre of hotel. Staff overall are quite neutral/average. Room was clean, modern and well decorated with air con/BBC world on the TV. Main problem - our room was at the front and on the first floor. The square opposite is used by bus companies to dropoff/pickup, and the main street is very busy with cruising cars (noisy, with music blaring) and scooters. Found it very hard to sleep in this hotel. Good things - the church and bar/restaurant/alcazaar at the top of the hill are very nice places to visit and eat/drink in. Take earplugs!
