    Great price, super clean and where you want to be. Also right outside of the old town, only a 10-minute walk. 'They include free breakfast and parking...even better. Comfortable bed and we had a cute porch. Friendly helpful staff. Highly recommend this place.

    We stayed here for several nights in this spotlessly clean hotel. Parking is very convenient in the nearby Plaza de España underground parking lot - 10 Euros a night. It's a nice uphill walk from the historic hotel to some of the major sights and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We paid 60 Euros a night.

    We stayed in Arcos one night mid May and found the rooms OK but fairly basic. Large old hotel that has obviously seen better days but it is well located to walk up to the old town. The rooms are of reasonable size, beds OK. Bathroom was basic and I had to repair loo cistern as when I pulled the button to release the water the knob came out in my hand and the rest fell back into the water!

    The reception staff were very friendly and helpful but when we came down for breakfast at 9 am on Sunday we were told they did not begin service until 9:30. Breakfast was fairly basic and in a dark and dingy room. We were given a reduced rate on the parking at the main underground car park a couple of hundred yards away. All in all it was fine for the price.

    Room Tip: We were given rooms on first floor facing the street but cannot say any more as we did not see any other rooms. Street was not noisy.

    This lovely historic hotel is well worth staying in. It was built in 1822 (I think), is spotlessly clean and brimming with character. Emilio, one of the receptionists, is a really great person and can't do enough to help you. He is a credit to the establishment. The restaurant below the hotel (separate business) is also well worth a visit.

    Really lovely old building beautifully decorated incorporating many original features. Guy who worked on reception genuinely friendly and really went out of his way to help, had terribly painful tooth at the time guided me to pharmacist and even went to talk to them on my behalf. Above and beyond the call of duty. Also situated in great part of town.
