Hotel Coso Viejo
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Antequera
Reviewed 24 May 2013

The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly. Nicely situated in the centre of Antequera and handy for visiting the castle and museum. The only downside is the Breakfast,very basic and no hot food. There is a restaurant/bar next door belonging to the hotel that does evening meals and tapas during the day.The staff are very friendly but do not speak a lot of English. The twin room that I stayed in was adequate with 2 comfortable single beds and the bathroom had everything you require,including plenty of hot water.Air conditioning is in every room.

From the lobby, this hotel looked like it was going to be a winner. However, the room itself was quite disappointing. The bathroom was fine, but the bed was just atrocious. My husband actually had to check and see if there was indeed a mattress, because it honestly felt like sleeping on just springs. With a change of the mattress and pillows and better breakfast, this place could be nice - it has a great location. However, the reason you come to a hotel is to sleep, and we could not do that here.

Stayed here recently. The twin room(205) was well equipped and good value at less than 100 euros for the three nights via Booking.com. The reception staff were excellent, helpful in every way. Right in the centre of town and with a delightful square opposite ideal for an informal evening drink and bite to eat. The hotel has a peaceful and pretty indoor courtyard with secure parking at the rear(10 euros per night). Give breakfast a miss. Whilst only 5 euros service is chaotic and other reviewers have highlighted the poor offering. Much better options at a few restaurants up in the town especially opposite the church. However we did have our first evening meal in the restaurant and the Dried Fruit and Smoked Salmon salad was superb and great value at less tha 10 euros.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the courtyard, 205 overlooked the busy main road so make a request to suit.

Reception is nice, good location within 100 meter of tourist information / city center (bus terminal is some 20 minutes walking away, train station further), staff was helpful. Single room on the top floor did only have window (and a small one) in roof so the room was kind of claustrophobic (but I did choose the cheapest room), wifi was available in hotel, but did not reach room.

Breakfast was just a dry baguette with package with butter and jam, I advice going to one of several cafes around for better and cheaper breakfast.

Room Tip: Avoid single room with roof window, avoid breakfast included

Great location on an incredibly beautiful square in incredibly beautiful Antequera. The hotel also has a very pretty inner courtyard with arches and a babbling fountain. Here ends the charm. Otherwise the hotel is no more than "ok", I'm afraid. I had to stay 3 nights, but was stuffed in a dingy back room with hardly any natural light, a view of generators and chimneys etc and the loud rumpus from the kitchen well into the early hours of the morning. The breakfast is an abomination - 1 cup of coffee and 1 hard packet rusk with a choice of a container of jam or a tomato. I asked for a glass of orange juice. It came eventually. I fear I will be billed for it tomorrow, when I leave. It is also served in a dingy, windowless basement. A really dreary start to the day. So I decided to breakfast somewhere else. This hotel should be aware what other hotels out there are doing. A breakfast buffet is pretty standard these days. And the hotel itself could do with freshening up.

Room Tip: If you MUST stay here, make sure they give you a room with a view of something cute. OR stay somewhe...

Just back from a week's holiday in Antequera with a tour group. From a location point of view I was very pleased I picked the Coso Viejo to stay in, as I was travelling alone (though part of the group) - right in the heart of the town, close to the sights, cafes, bars and shops. The hotel was clean and staff were helpful - the only fault I found with the place was breakfast - it could only be described as chaotic and unpredictable! I'm not fussy and a coffee, juice and toast are fine by me. But from one day to next I was never sure if I'd get all 3. One day the toaster is broken, the next the coffee is cold and like tar!!.... Having said that if I was to return to Antequera I would stay in Coso Viejo again - but maybe go out for my breakfast!

We liked the location of the hotel. it was right in the center of Antequerra and infront of the hotel was nice central square where we found an interesting museum.. Also the historcal sides of Antequerra were close. The stuff was very freindly and helpfull and spoke a rather good english. Especially the young man, who recomendet us a great restaurant! The rooms unfortunatly were not according to a 3 star hotel. They were a bit poor furnished, there was not even a banch for the luggage to store and my husbands bed nearly broke. The pillows were very thin and old so we had to ask for more and better pillows. We got addionell pillows. The breakfast in the restaurant was very poor as well .Alltogther I must say the hotel dos not deserve 3 stars. I would qualify this hotel as a 1 ore 2 star hotel..

Room Tip: Choose a room inside the patio. Rooms towards the have a very nice view, but are noisy
