Location: Everything is close by.
There are nice sound proof windows and a/c. The stairs to go up might be an inconvenience for some people.

This hotel's location is great. Very central - a few blocks away from the Mercado, Cathedral, Main Plaza. It is located down a narrow alley (callejon) where there are a few restaurants with outside seating. Sometimes it does not smell very good in there but people eating do not seem to mind it. The hotel is very clean. When I booked the room, it said that the bathroom is outside. I didn't realize that that meant that it is outside of the room. Though it was private and right next door, it is kind of a nuisance to go outside of the room and into the hallway to use the bathroom. It was nice to have a sink inside the room. It was a bit dark in there but the shower worked well and it was clean. The cable TV was great. Nice flat screen big TV. The only thing that I didn't like was that my credit card was charged before we checked-in. Good service at check-in. We had a late train out of Valencia, so we also appreciated that they let us leave our bags there after we checked-out. Overall a nice stay.

not again

front desk person unfriendly. Could not see anyone in the hostel but walls were thin. Room smelled like smoke and bathroom smelled like urine. Sheets were clean and soft, bed and pillow were comfortable. Very expensive for accommodation. Would not stay there again

Other than being on the top floor with only a fan (no AC) during an usually hot month, the experience was good. The trick was to stay out late and wait for the room to cool off. There is a good Irish pub around the corner called Saint Martin to help you cool off.

Great Value for the Price

Posted 13-Jun-2014
Pros: PROS: Location, English speaking staff, clean, decent bathroom, window to outside, on quiet street
Stayed at Hostal El Cid with my husband for 3 nights and it was perfect for our needs. It was clean, comfortable and inexpensive. We got in on a 4am train from Granada and they had a note waiting for us with instructions on how to contact staff to check in and get our keys. Most staff spoke English and were extremely helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend to travelers looking for simple, clean, safe, and inexpensive.

Hotel staff can speak in fluent English; and very helpful. Location is perfect; in walking distance to most of attractions. However, there are lot of restaurants & bars downstairs, it's quite noisy in night time.
