“Water torture”
Reviewed 5 November 2010

We arrived in the room hearing the toilet running. It would not stop, so we called the desk. The man who arrived heard the rush of water from the toilet and told us it wasn't so bad. He then proceeded to try to fix the toilet while breaking it, making the sound worse and the toilet unflushable. And he turned off the water to the tank. He then instructed us to flush the toilet by turning on the water, removing the tank top, reaching in to pull the flusher and then turn the water off again at its source. We said this is unacceptable and we want a different room. He said there were no other rooms and left. My husband decided to try and fix the plumbing himself, which he did. This hotel has an uncaring staff that seems to think that indoor plumbing is just a step above an outhouse.

I didn't find this hotel to be very memorable, but the location was great. The Plaza de Tendillas is lively and did not feel touristy at all. We were an easy walk to the Mezquita and the charming Jewish quarter.

Our room had no view other than a tiny, dingy interior courtyard. There was plenty of hot water and the bed was fine for sleeping. The electricity went off twice during our stay. There is an computer available in the lobby for customer use, but they will charge you by the half hour.

At 76.00 € / night, this place was more expensive than I would have wanted. (The cheaper places in town were already booked). I don't like the feeling that I'm paying for a tv and a fancy lobby I don't need.

Overall this is not a bad place to stay. It was quite helpful to have a grocery store right outside the hotel.

Reviewed 8 April 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights during Easter. The location was perfect! From our room we had view over the Plaza de Tendillas. Importants sights are easy to walk, Mezquita in 10 minutes! We didn't have breakfast in the hotel, because there are enough pasteleria's nearby.
The room was small, and also the bathroom was very small and not quiet up to today's standards, but we managed.
The car parking was hard to reach because of one way streets and was also a bit poor...
