Hotel itself is quite nice. Staff is generally friendly & helpful, but be prepared to remember your Spanish as many do not speak English well, though they will nod and say 'OK' when you speak to them.
One thing that suprised me was absence of free water in rooms. Only two small bottles in the fridge at EUR4 each. And hotel restaurant refused to sell me a bigger 1L bottles to take away, offering only same 0.3L bottles instead.
The biggest disappointment, however, was lack of good night sleep: apparently the hotel authorised a party for some of its guests, featuring heavy drinking and kilowatt speakers with Eastern European music. When it continued after 2AM, I called the reception and asked when this debauch would stop. To my surprise, a receptionist said it would go for another hour, until 3AM. And it did :-(
It is sad that the hotel management decided to entertain a few guests at the expense of many others. I am unlikely to choose this hotel, and probably the hotel chain, again for my travels.
