Positive Reviews

Excellent location in the historic core

This was perhaps what most impressed guests about the property. They described it as being incredibly central, and not only near to the historical attractions many had come to see, but also near the bars, restaurants that they were looking for on their city break.

Beautiful and well maintained property

Guests clearly though highly of the property and its design. It was described as especially beautiful, with the old architecture and traditional courtyard creating a special atmosphere that could perhaps be found nowhere else other than in Andalusia.

Very friendly reception

While guests were impressed with the staff in general, they especially appreciated the warm welcome and friendly attitude displayed by the reception staff.

Negative Reviews

Problems with the air conditioning

Many guests had a problem with the air conditioning in the hotel. The most basic problem was that some rooms did not have a unit at all, which was a distinct problem in the middle of summer. The more common problem was that the units were so loud they had to be turned off at night, or that they were not strong enough to properly cool the room.

Very poor soundproofing

Noise problems were one of the more common issues guests experienced. They mentioned that the rooms were really not well soundproofed and that other guests could sometimes be loud and in high spirits. As a result, quite a number of guests had restless nights listening to other guests making a racket nearby.

Poor Wi-Fi

It was very rare to find any praise directed towards the Wi-Fi system. On the contrary, many guests complained that the signal was very weak in their rooms, and that they could even experience problems when closer to the router.
