A very nice hotel, staff were very friendly. A great location if you're coming from the airport or coming via bus or train as hotel is situated just across the road from the bus and railway stations. We hadn't been to Almeria before but we certainly will in the future and will stay again at this hotel.

"Excellent hotel and service but unfortunately not near the centre or the beach"
The hotel itself and the staff were excellent. I communicated in Spanish with them although, they appeared to speak/know some English. Even though we were there in August, the bar/restaurant was pretty quiet with predominantly Spanish tourists. You could watch TV in the bar area and have a tea/coffee as and when. The rooms do not have a balcony and there is no swimming pool on site. We were told about a gym on the main road, where you could get a discount. Right next to the hotel, there is a good shopping centre which also has a cinema and restaurants/cafes.
However, the hotel location is not brilliant which is such as shame because the hotel itself is very good. To get around Almeria you would need to get a bus or hire a car. Even though, the man at the hotel told us that the public transport in Almeria is not great, we have to disagree. Once you have worked out the bus system with the help of a map, it is not difficult and pretty cheap (every journey was the same price regardless of the distance). Get the 2,5,11 to the centre and get the 12 to the beach and in the melting heat of 40 degrees you would not want to spend an hour walking! The buses do stop around 10.30 so if we were in the centre late, we would get a taxi back which wasn't too expensive.
The hotel is part of a chain of hotels, I would try use them in another city. The price you pay for the hotel with Expedia is very reasonable and would be much more expensive if you were going to pay for it separately.
Great value for money and friendly staff, nice modern luxurious bathroom. However, It was impossible to get sound on the TV, and the room looked out onto an abandoned building site. Also, the hotel is located a way away from the city centre, and from shops and restaurants and anywhere to eat in the evening.
Although difficult to find if driving to the Plaza Vieja, it is certainly worth it once you have arrived. The staff were absolutely amazing. So very helpful and patient as my Spanish is not very good. We will definitely stay again when we go to Almeria. Lots of great bars very near but we chose to eat at the hotel and we're not disappointed. The tapas were amazing.
We had to ask about the roof terrace - unfortunately it had rained the day before (which is very unusual for Almeria) and all the cushions had got wet so they had closed it. It wasn't any trouble for them to open it just for us though and bring up drinks.
The Spa was simply devine, such a relaxing environment. Shame we were only there for 1 night but we still managed to squeeze in a massage.

Luxury hotel just ten mins from small airport (with virtually no aircraft noise) Great staff and buffet food.
No night life to speak off and little going on in the immediate surroundings. Great for just chilling out. Do note however that the advertised facilities for the pools areas (bar, snack bar etc) closed for the winter in the middle of September!,.
