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.
