The location and the helpful and friendly staff. The outstanding breakfast buffet. The pleasant bar and the chilled bottle of cava welcoming you in the lobby. The fitness centre on the 6th floor, which you have to find through 4th floor stars. The bikes are of very poor quality, and the TV never worked. Noisy renovation of the 6th and 5th floors. Updating needed of rooms and corridors. Unsafe steps and very slippery and unsafe floor in the rooms. Bathtub needs a shower mat. The air-condition in the room did not work, so we had to sleep with the veranda door open - and cough 'Spanish colds'. The 'view' from our room in the rear was not very inviting, overlooking the courtyard and the roof of the breakfast restaurant. We were a group of three couples, of which we were the only having included breakfast in the room rate. The remaining two couples got their breakfast at half price when checking in. So we ended up paying euro 10 per head more than them, and the hotel would not rectify the matter. Do not ever let the hotel charge you a rate for room and breakfast, it will apparently be cheaper to negotiate the breakfast with the hotel on arrival. Besides that, the staff is so charming smiling and helpful, that it made our stay great.
