“Welcoming & Recommend to stay”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

Gorgeous place to explore & a lovely place to stay. Character filled with polished timber floors, Clean & roomy with a small balcony. Friendly & very welcoming. If you are looking for a central place to stay close to restaurants & exploring the cobblestone streets of Teruel this is the place to stay. Highly recommend and would love to return.

Don't be frightened by the man who may "welcome" you at the reception mowning around and expecially do not absolutely follow his advice to park in front of the entrance to unload the luggage (the policewoman  who turned up after 2 seconds was not happy with it) but leave the car in the nearby undrground park. The hotel is really a tiny nice one with only 8 refurbished rooms fully equipped (air conditioning, flat screen TV and free speedy WIFI) It is family run by a very nice and welcome lady who will proudly and kindly show you the medieval tunnel she discovered underneath the hotel. Breakfast is served in the tiny cafeteria but is not continental.

We stayed for just 1 night, but it was a exciting pleasant surprise!
The owners of the hotel are so nice, will help you with everything and you will feel as if you are staying at home...
We had a car and although the hotel is right in the center of Teruel, it is very easy to find and you would just need to walk 20 meters. Also there is a parking about 100 meters from the hotel.
The room was very comfortable and although a bit cold at night, there were blankets to use. And also there are bottles of water to use in the fridge.
Breakfast is superb as everything is home-made by the owners! We wish that all hotels were like this one!

Room Tip: Just be sure to have personal communication with the people of the hotel, they are amazing!

This hotel is like Teruel, it has a a lot of character but you will need to know where to look.

Outside it's just an ordinary building with an old fashioned facade but this tiny hotel is actually built on top of the stone foundations of an old church that dated back to 13th century pre-mudejar times. So if you stay here you can ask for a free tour from the owner of the hotels.

Once underneath, you will find a Moroccan style tea room and opposite to it are the 900 + years old stone arch and the small stone passage which led directly to a (unfortunately sealed) door of the church of San Esteban. It is said that during medieval times, priests also do the duty of rationing out food and money donated to them by the wealthy class. Thus they are also given houses to store the food and money and hence this house was built with a large cellar. No one seems to be able to say why the priest had a tunnel from his own's residence cellar leading to the church but there it was. So if you like a little bit of legend and a candle light tour of a short tunnel, do ask for the tour, which is mostly done in Spanish.

Up in the rooms, the interior decoration is very modern. Our double room was ok not too large or too small. It has an ok size bathroom too. What gives the room character was the headboard and the design of the key chain and the drawing on the doors, they are replicas of the 14th century painted beams of Teruel's Cathedral.

The downside of this hotel is that the room does smell damp (even if the sheets are not damp as in some of the previous commentaries). Do air the rooms once you arrive. Also there is no reception area (the bar is doubled as the reception counter and breakfast counter) so it can get confusing during check in and check out times. Breakfast is done in slightly cramped lobby area of the ground floor. There is also no parking in the hotel. So if you drive here, we recommend you park at Teruel's biggest private parking area "La Glorieta" parking which is three floors, roofed, clean, secured and can be googled. Then drag your luggage down hill to this hotel which is just around the bend. Or you can manage to drop off your luggage off first (cars are sometimes allow up infront of the hotel but you must turn right immediately to go to the parking mentioned).

Breakfasts are included and consist of mostly pastries, bread, ham, cheese and several spreadings. We were offered Mrs. Maria Jose specially baked pastry dessert: "los suspiros de los amantes" or the custard tartlets named "sighs of the lovers" as part of breakfast, which we thought was a nice lovely touch to a cosy weekend spent here. So do I recommend you stay here ? of course!

We picked this hotel by chance upon our arrival in Teruel at 10 pm after a long day driving. I agree with all the previous reviews, especially in regards to the bathroom, which is top notch. We found the beds OK...the sheets were a bit damp but the room is spotless. Breakfast room is tiny and people are allowed to smoke just off to the side. Good quality coffee but we found the food choices limited. We paid 65 euros for a double in early August.

Nice small hotel, tastefullly decorated rooms in mudejar style with simple but very efficient bathroom. Excellent breakfast with home made products. Very well situated in the centre of Teruel, free parking on walking distance. Extremely friendly owners and staff, trying to please you in every possible way. Every guest is given a private tour of the medieval gallery that was discovered under the hotel 4 years ago, leading to a church. We have travelled a lot, but this was the first time we experienced this kind of service!
