Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We request a room for person with disability, the room was spacious and the shower was a walk in-wheelchair ....perfect.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Could use a refresh.
Room was TINY and worn. Could use a refresh. Additionally, the window in the room opened onto a roof access for equipment in interior of building so there was no light coming in the room. Considering we stayed during the coronavirus outbreak putting us in a nicer room (as the hotel was nearly empty) would have gone a long way. Only plus was the location (reason I selected). Located in Old Town in middle of pintxos bar area. Park at Arenal underground parking about 5 minutes away.
