The web pictures of rooms looked fine but we were probably unlucky. In room 207, there was a 10 cm difference in the height of our beds. (have ever seen that elsewhere). The upholstery of the only chair in the small room was badly torn. And no other room available.
Otherwise ok for ***
1 - Reception and the room were fine and very clean, albeit some upgrading of the corridors was going on eg no carpets only concrete floors in some of them.
2 - Food was awful. Tasteless school dinners of the 1950's variety. Catering management was unhelpful although staff were very helpful otherwise. No coffee available except in the bar after lunch and dinner, only at breakfast.
Meals were buffet style and at set times. All quite regimented eg same table and seat for each meal. The Spaniards in the party seemed to accept this in general, although one couple on our table left on Day 2 of the 3 day stay and never reappeared for the whole 7 day trip. Personally I want to rebel against this sort of customer service. Generally I am used to a better standard in the dining rooms of British & US hotels or at least the 3* ones I have stayed in from time to time.
3 - A tram line straight into the city centre starts just down the road from the hotel and is clean, relatively quick (although it has just over 20 stops for the journey) and only costs about £1.50 each way.
I wouldn't stay again for more than 1 night but I guess this may be what you get for 3* comfort there.
Excellent check in and friendly staff. Room size disappointing, rooms recently renovated shame the beds weren't updated also. Good location for accessing Albolote and Granada. Shower beware goes from medium to scalding hot. Would book again though as its a great town with many numerous bars and restaurant.
We only stayed for one night at this hotel, Abolote being a convenient overnight stop on our journey from Valencia to Cadiz. The hotel facilities, although fairly basic, were perfectly adequate for our short stay and represented very good value for the very modest cost, particularly as breakfast was also included. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable.
It appears that the hotel primarily caters for coach parties and there were at least two parties staying at the time of our stay. By the time we went down for breakfast at 9:30 the coach parties had been and gone and although the food had been considerably depleted there was still sufficient available, albeit that the choice was restricted and the hot food had clearly been on the hotplate for several hours and looked totally unappetising. The lesson is clearly go early for breakfast if you want to eat well!
We also appreciated the secure underground parking for 5 euros, which meant that we did not need to unload all of our luggage. It should be noted, however, that the car park is not served by the lift and it is, therefore, necessary to carry any luggage up the stairs to the ground floor to access the lift.
At the end of the day I must say that the cost was so modest that it is probably unfair to be at all critical at what must be regarded as very good value for money.
We stayed for three nights to join a package tour with the first leg of the tour in Granada. While the staff (Front Office, Housekeeping and Restaurant) welcomes you with a smile, it unfortunately ends there. The Front Staff has limited knowledge of the English language. It is a challenge trying to find answers to our inquiry. Room is clean and air-conditioned. Bathroom is good. There are water bottles in the room but not complimentary; they are for purchase. Our package includes continental breakfast: toast, jam, coffee, juice, cereal but it would be great if cheese or fresh fruit is also offered. Dinner was good: roasted chicken on Day 2 and grilled pork on Day 3. It would have been great to taste Andalusian dishes. There is a supermarket across the street to get water and fresh fruits. It is best to stay in Granada city proper.
