Have stayed here a few times, have stayed on both floors with and without a terrace and found all rooms nice and good enough for a night or two, I think perhaps if you were to stay longer you'd want larger wardrobes and a mini fridge to store some milk and water. I personally like the door code system and... More

Bit confusing because this hotel is now called Benali Hotel! Loved it! Very clean, enjoyed a comfortable nights sleep despite being located in the middle of the old town. May be different in season, but speak how I find! Looking to book again for a few days in September!

had a lovely time in the Balenciaga rooms when we went to Tarifa for a wedding. Booked room with balcony overlooking the old town. Clean and tidy even if the en-suite was a little bijou. We left our English money hidden under the bed and the owners posted it back to us with no problems at all. Highly recommend. Tarifa... More

Hard to rate this hotel. On the one hand side you are in the right in the middle of the town, very close to the harbor and have all nice restaurants around you. On the other hand this is exactly the problem as there are so many people sitting in the restaurants at night that you hardly find a calm... More

We were disappointed in Balenciaga rooms: we had a tiny tiny room (202) with terras. The terras was almost bigger than the room. The room next to us (203, similar price) was a lot bigger and we were quite angry that we didn't get to stay in that one. There was no place for our suitcases and the wardrobe was... More

Balenciaga Rooms exceeded all our expectations: spacious, clean, tasteful simple design, very well maintained, working high speed wireless internet, strong hot shower... Excellent location, less than 5 min walk to ferry to Morocco and/or main square. What else one may want for a room at such price? We arrived after working hours and checked out early. We did not meet... More

We stayed here in the middle of February, when all was peace and quiet in the area, as most things had yet to open for the season. Access was by means of a code which was emailed to us, so we didn't see anyone at check-in or check out. Nor did we see any other guests, but open windows suggested... More

The small hotel was charming and a great location near the Cathedral but off form the noise of the main street. We had a very nice size terrace on the 3rd floor. The corner room is the largest with a terrace as well. The staff was friendly and the decoration was simple but had a nice Spanish/Moroccan feel to it.

We really enjoyed our stay at Balenciaga Rooms. The location in the center of the old town is ideal with many restaurants and tapas bars literally on your doorstep. The closest beach is a 5min walk. We booked room 201 with a large balcony that over looked the courtyard below and offered views of the towns roof tops. However, the... More
