“Clean, good value for money, helpful & pleasant staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Gran canaria was a very impromptu trip for us. We booked this hotel just 3 days before our scheduled travel after a short but intensive research. Before booking, we asked the hotel management for double bed (as it was our wedding anniversary). They said they will do the best they can. We got our double bed from the second day of our arrival. The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant all throughout. The bed mattress, pillows and duvets were comfortable (unlike mentioned in previous reviews). Probably the hotel has changed it since.

Apartment/hotel room:- Large and spacious (Reception area, open plan kitchen, bathroom/toilet, bedroom & balcony). It has all the basic things one would need and is a great-great value for money.

Kitchen:- Has fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric Hob, toaster and various utensils (cups, pans, knife, spoon, plates etc).

Balcony:- All balconies are pool facing with a coffee table and 2/3 chairs.

Pool:- Nice, clean and good ambience with a sauna and jacuzi. However we used nothing. There is also a pool bar.

Cleaning:- Was done every alternate day atleast (sometimes every consequetive days also), and so were the towels changed. The cleaning ladies were pleasant.,

Location:- is good with lots and shops/cafes/supermarkets around. The Yumbo centre (Playa de Ingles largest shopping area) is also very close. We just loved the food at the Indian restaurant Maharaja in the Yumbo centre. There is also a very good Pizza/gaming joint just outside Walkirias (dont remember the name, but it is down just 2-3 shops on your right when u exit Walkirias. My husband and used to play pool there. The pizzas there were awesome - fresh, tasty and super reasonable and I loved the coffee too.

Walkirias Cons:-
The bathroom didnt have a lock. However, it was fine for us as we were husband and wife.
The Bed room gets a bit gloomy, as it faces the main road and the windows were always shut.
It is noisy if you plan to sleep early (with some noise from Yumbo centre and the road traffic).

Overall, our stay at Walkirias was very pleasant here and we felt safe. We will go there again.

Room Tip: higher floor ---> better views and quieter rooms

This is a great little resort! A great price, and the location is even better. It is situated right behind the Yumbo Centre. There is a walkway down the side of the hotel which leads straight in to the Centre. All the rooms look over the Yumbo Centre, but I wasn't bothered too much about any noise. If you don't want a lively holiday, full of hustle and bustle, don't come to this resort!!

The rooms are very basic, but always perfectly clean. Theres a small bedroom with two singles beds. Yes, these are fairly firm, but some people like a firm bed, some people don't. In the kitchen there is two hobs, kettle, toaster, and coffee maker. It would be helpful to have a microwave, but I managed without one. There is also a fairly large fridge which is an essential. There is no air conditioning so in the middle of august the apartment became very warm! The room maids kept the entire hotel very clean. My room was cleaned daily, even though I was only expecting it once every 2/3 days.

The staff at the resort were all very helpful. So overall i would recommend this hotel, but as I said earlier, if you want peace and quiet - go somewhere else in Gran Canaria!

Great location, only a few meters from Yumbo. Nice and clean apartment with large balcony.
Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice pool and deck. Beds are horrible. Small, harder than concrete. Quite noisy as it is next to Yumbo with all the bars and clubs but that's the reason to go to Gran Canaria isn't it?. Bathroom is decent just as well as the kitchen area and the closet space in the bedroom. Would I go here again? Yes. Would I take my own inflatable mattress? Yes.

The hotel is centrally located approx. 100 meters behind the shopping center.
Rooms are spacious and all with balconies.
Clean rooms but slightly worn, the beds very hard, which is quite common all over Spain. The service is fantastic, thanks to Abbi receptionist who will arrange the most you are asking for. A plus is also his language skills. As far as I know he can fluently English, German, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Portuguese and Spanish, of course. One tip is to book a room high up in the hotel building.
Then you get views of the sea and less noise from the street and shopping center.

we arrived from Belgium on 22 september for 2 weeks and it was lovely, the rooms are simple but very clean, yumbo centre 3 minutes, very close (during the night you can hear the noize from there). the price is acceptable and comparing with the services it's ok. Abi(he speaks a lot of languages even french that we appreciated a lot) and Adam from the reception are very friendly and can give you a lot of advices if you need.we even book an excursion at the reception and it was ok. one of the bad things is that the safebox is situated at the reception and not in the room and they are very smal (for passports, creditcards, documents, smal objects).
the pool side is clean and very nice for relaxing during the day if you are tired to the beach, free sunbeds and a very nice small bar with acceptable prices and sometimes they had live music plus barbeque, etc

and in my opinion but this is a relative point of view: the beds are not that confortable, but it depends on each person.
next time we will go back for sure we liked the hotel and the stuff.

Just came back 3 weeks ago from las walkirias and it was great!
In the beginning of this year we went to monte feliz in bahia feliz (we are going to go there again!) but because this time I went only with my friend (my husband and son couldn´t come) we wanted to stay in playa del ingles to do lots of shopping and have fun in the night and this was the best hotel we could find!

This hotel has a amazing pool, it is stunning!
With the pool comes a poolbar where they sell a kinds of snacks and drinks.

We didn´t expect much of the hotel for it´s low prices but it was amazing! the rooms are a bit old and simple but it was perfect for us plus it was very clean.

The staff is very nice and helpfull, only we didn´t like the man in the poolbar much but we went out for drinks/food anyway.

The best about this hotel is the location, you will find the jumbo center en lots of shops, restaurants en bars within 5 min. walk. The jumbo center is so much fun in the night with all the shows they do, they are so funny!

Do know that you can hear some music in the night from the jumbo center but if you close the window in front you won´t hear it.
