Wasn't quite sure what to expect given some of the reviews, but fortunately I found El Portal OK.
The room [#18] was very big. OK, as somebody else says, " ...it's not the Ritz", but it is more than OK. Yes, it is a little tired and could do with a makeover but for a pitstop with a good bed, hot water & a wifi signal it does the job.
If funds allowed I would suggest to the owner, who incidently is a nice guy and provided me with some very useful directions, should invest in some new heating appliances.
p.s. I hope the cold water tap in the bath/shower has had some attention, I couldn't turn it off!
