The room was much larger than I had anticipated. The bath in particular was huge with a jacuzzi. The restaurant was very good. The free breakfast was very good. The coffee was excellent. It was a very good value overall.
Stayed 3 nights on a brief visit from Canada. Emailed for directions from Airport bus. Prompt reply from Marcela Redondo Diaz who advised changing just a small amount of currency at Airport. Later changed more at Hotel and given a Rate almost the same as the Banks, without the Passport hassle.
Good breakfast starting at 6:00 Pleasant staff
Entrance near corner of Calle 7 and opposite large Hotel Balmoral sign
