"Beautiful hotel...a must stay"
The hotel was beautiful. The staff was superb! We received cookies upon arrival, a bottle of water each day, turn down service with candy on our pillow each night. We enjoyed the beautiful patio area where we had amazing gin and tonic.
"Beautiful hotel, conveniently located..."
This hotel is a beautiful old town house with a fabulous grand marble staircase, juxtaposed with a super-cool modern extension. The blend of old and new extends to the rooms in the old house and generally works well. The gardens and terrace are a chic blend or one and new. The hotel in very conveniently located and the food is excellent - the smoked sardines with guacamole were excellent, as was the mojama. The staff were attentive and charming. There are, however, one or two design flaws - there was insufficient shelf/cupboard space in the bedroom, the pool in neither long enough nor deep enough to swim in properly and the steam room is tepid at best. Don't let these things put you off - its a great base for a long weekend in a fabulous city.
"Impressive hotel , excellent team."
When you pull up to the hotel you know you have arrived somewhere special. Lovely old building tastefully decorated in a modern style, with spacious comfortable bedrooms (prone to nighttime street noise, which can be a nuisance). Incredibly attentive staff, who want to make your stay as comfortable as they can. Special mention to the GM for going out of his way to look after us , thank you . Great location, highly recommended.
To do this review justice, I must explain that we really just use the room. Since we were in the new block with a separate entrance through the restaurant, we had little contact with the staff beyond eating twice in the restaurant and the complimentary 15 minute massage. Our room was new, decorated in a trendy theme with some minor design faults such as the curtains could only be closed by walking behind the nets; the bath, which was made of pieces of marble cemented together, leaked slightly. There was also building work causing noise which I assume is temporary. It was ok but not the height of luxury suggested by its write-up.
"great location and tranquil"
This hotel is divided into 2 buildings: one is part of a historic home and the other is a new building. We stayed in the new one, and it was beautiful. The room was large, very bright and had a large bathroom. The bed was actually a large king size. Although it is centrally located, and walking distance from everywhere, it is quiet and has a very nice garden/patio. Our breakfast was included and was delicious. They had a well stocked buffet table. Spaniards usually don't have fried hot heavy breakfasts and the choices available reflected this, however my husband being British wanted eggs and bacon/sausage and they were more than happy to make them to your liking at no extra charge When we needed help with our reservations for tours, the desk was very helpful in confirming them for us. The had good suggestions for restaurants as well. The only negative comments I have, and bear in mind we stayed in the modern side, are that some hotels try to be very fancy using new materials in modern buildings and they don't weather well.Our bathroom was done in black slate and it actually looked dirty, probably hard to clean. In fact the hard floor was warped and everything looked a bit dirty. Our bathtub was like a marble trough, rectangular and had no slanted sides. It leaked on the corners through what seemed to be a bad caulking job. Actually, there seemed to be caulking repairs all over the hotel. With the modern set up of vessel sinks, there is no room for our toiletries on the counter. Having said all this I would definitely stayed there again.
