If you're staying only for sleeping, it's fine and cheap.. For long lasting stay I will recommend another place... Let's say, the hotel was clean, but I felt like I'm on Castle, maybe that's the purpose, but innovation wouldn't be bad.

Entering the gardens of the Rey Carlos hotel it feels like travelling back in time, back to the 70's. Very nice spacious pool area with plenty of sun beds, a pool bar and showers. Even a jacuzzi hidden away. One can tell this hotel was opened in 1974 as all furniture got the feeling of genuine Spanish quality of past...

We were happy with the hotel last year so this year we came there again. Virtually nothing changed during this time so there is still plenty of room to improve. Old-fashioned keys, for example. It was sometimes difficult to manage a single key between three independent people. Also, the heavy iron chandelier met with our heads more than once in...

Each room is like a little apartment and is quite nice if you like an old royal stile. We had a double room at the 5.th flour. This rooms are better for couples because have double beds and a living when you just want to look tv or drink something. They have also a kitchen, which we haven`t used, but...
