Smoking with cigarettes...

Posted 05-Jan-2017 on Hotels
The room had an awful cigarette smell in it when I checked in. I had to leave the windows open a day to get some of the smell out. Also the walls are really thin! Heard the couple next door doing the nasty like I was in the bed with them. Bed was comfortable though...

Excellent value hotel in Sherry port near Cadiz

Posted 21-May-2016
This is an excellent small hotel in one of the sherry ports, half an hour across the bay from Cadiz (whether by catamaran ferry, by train, or by bus). I am not sure how representative the Expedia price I paid was, but I found the spec of the hotel outstanding value for money - smart public areas and rooms, with marble floors and tasteful décor, and very clean. The hotel staff I dealt with were without exception helpful and charming, although none that I dealt with had more than very basic English. This comment also applies to staff in restaurants etc in the town of El Puerta de Santa Maria, although the tourist information office in the town was very helpful in good English. The only English language TV channel available in the room ran back-to-back old Hollywood movies, but the Wi-Fi connection was excellent. I found the hotel very quiet (including on a Saturday night). Restaurant prices in surrounding streets were much better value than in Cadiz itself. Like one other reviewer, I found the hotel initially hard to find. The very narrow street it is on turns off the main road from the station, but it is not named at the crucial junction. The map does accurately give the names of the streets immediately preceding the one you need. Overally, I would definitely stay there again.

excellent value

Near to the dock where you can catch the ferry to Cadiz, and not too far from the railway station. Near to places of interest, a lovely square, local cafe's for breakfast. Very clean and was just being updated downstairs.

Quaint, well situated in Puerto Santa Maria

Posted 15-Jan-2016 on Hotels
Room was pleasant and clean, nice & bright. Bed was ok - the mattress was kind of squishy foam on top. Only real drawback: very thin walls - could hear everything happening in next room! Still, for the price & location & general feel - it's a good choice.

Nice and Clean and straightforward

Posted 29-Sep-2015
Pros: very clean, central and friendly staff
Cons: Thicker curtains to reduce some of the noise from outside
Location: Very near to the banks and shops in Calle Larga and the lovely river and park
Its very central to El Puerto, the staff are excellent and the rooms are left spotlessly clean by the staff every morning and topped up with soap and shower gel and there is a TV and several different lamps in the room for reading etc The only downside is there is a little bit of noise coming in from outside at the weekends due to its proximity to a club. It didn't bother me as I am quite a heavy sleeper. Breakfast is excellent quality and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Good for a short stay at old city centre

Posted 23-Jun-2015 on Hotels
Hostal is in the old part of the city, 5 min. walking distance from the cathedral and 10 min. from Castillo de San Marcos one of the Puerto Maria landmarks. You can find two streets with the few restaurants and shops nearby. This part of town is usually quiet at night without people on the streets, but you can find open restaurant at 11 p.m. as I mentioned before close to hotel. If you are arriving by car you can park free of charge in the street parallel to the river and then walk 5-10 min to the hotel or use garage (4 euro per day – receptionist will direct you). Hostal, is simple, clean and decent enough to spend night or two there. They have two types of room; cheaper with older furniture (red bed covers at the hotel photo) and renovated ones 8white decor) which are few $ more expensive. First I made booking of a cheaper one, but it was little bit too shabby for my taste (yet clean), so I change it to a renovated one and had a nice stay. Room has a new furniture, wallpapers, cabinet, bathroom.. .Everything was clean and I felt comfortable there (room is not a big, but we had enough space to open two big suitcases). Few minor things were missing: soap holder in the bathroom, chair in the room (since table is there)... Only minor negative point was yelling and singing of a drunken Spanish couple in 3 a.m. that woke us up. They were loud for one hour, so I think it would be expected from the receptionist to call the police to calm them down.

Nice place

A quick nights stay we found this hotel very nice. A short walk from the castle and not too far from the beach. The river is close by and so are many restaurants

Close to Town centre

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: Hotel is clean and well maintained with pleasant staff.
Cons: I don't think improving the noise level from the next door night club is an option. Take some ear plugs if it bothers you.
Location: Close to railway station, town centre and ferry terminus 1 mile away which takes you to Cadiz.
The stay was enjoyable the hotel is clean, well maintained and not to far from the train station to walk if you are ok with directions.
