Apartahotel San Marcos
Ranked #8 of 15 Hotels in Badajoz
Reviewed 20 January 2016

I'd say this hotel is pretty average in a good way, but the fact that it is cheap pushes it up a bit on a value for money basis. We definitely stayed in more expensive places that were not as good. Some features of the hotel and room were a bit worn, and the wifi signal swung from fine to very slow, but the service was friendly, the room was large, beds comfy and the bathroom clean and well kitted out. The hotel is in a good location right in the centre of Badajoz. There is a bar/restaurant next door which is part of the hotel which we did not sample. The hotel is quiet so it's not the kind of place you would stay as a solo traveller looking for adventure, but then I'm not sure Badajoz is that kind of place. The one biggest draw back I would say is that, as in most Spanish cities, the parking is a nightmare and the hotel offers a secure underground mini car park - but at 12 euros extra I think this was a bit steep.

Central, good price, secure parking, large room, Comfortable bed, clean.
Difficult to find as GPS gave us a route where cars were prohibited due to the narrow streets and some were one way. Don't always trust Google Maps!
We rang to book but the person we talked to did not speak English. We turned up anyway and the English speaking Receptionist was there. Very helpful. She gave us a choice of rooms. We picked a quiet one at the back although the front ones would have been ok. Not many tourists in Badajoz. While there, don't walk through the derelic area. We got accosted, harassed and followed by someone wanting to sell us something. we had to seek refuge in a restaurant but the man just sat by the entrance waiting for us. it was very scary. Later on while walking through places we always were looking over our shoulders.

The hotel is brilliantly located on Badajoz's old town. It is very cosy and although it is only a 2-star hotel, it is better than some 3-star ones i've stayed in the past.

The room was large as well as the bathroom. It was decorated with quality and stylish furniture and finishings and it included TV, bar, AC, bathroom heating, 2 sets of towels, and so forth.

The staff were very friendly and helpul. On a less positive note, perhaps the rather thin walls between rooms, which allowed sound to travel a bit more than what me and my girlfriend would have liked but nothing major. Wi-fi signal didn't reach our room but staff provided a LAN cable to connect the laptop to the hotel's network.

Overall it's a great place offering a great value-for-money right in the old town of Badajoz. In my opinion, travellers on a budget not willing to sacrifice on quality and comfort, would be happy with Hotel San Marcos for sure.

Room Tip: IF you can, bring a laptop, or (unless the hotel has sroted it by now) most likely you won't hav...

The title says it all. Very centrally located, in the old part of town, hard to park outside but they do have a garage (at a charge of €10/night). Nice modern rooms, very clean, good shower, good internet connection (cable), except the bed was too small (and that was the double!). There was an airco, TV and a safe in my room. Breakfast is probably better enjoyed outside the hotel's built-in restaurant: it was a bit skimpy, although not bad.

Room Tip: I had to 212 which is a very quiet place at the end of the corridor.

I stayed here with 3 friends over 3 nights, The hotel is in the Old town, very narrow streets, Parking can be a bit hard,if you cant park in the local streets but if ok with a 10 min walk then various places to park, either free up near Plaza Alta or 12 euros a night in underground carpark, the hotel has street maps to show you where, Beware you will need basic Spanish or very good translator machine, this is not the Costa Brava thank god!
Hotel has 3 Floors and is served by a lift, Every where we saw in hotel was very clean , and our room with twin beds was very clean and a great size, so was my friends, they both had Air con, (you control) Huge Wardrobe with safe and full size fridge, ideal to keep picnic stuff fresh. Small sofa and chair with table. Small TV only one English speaking channel CNN, .
All staff we met were very friendly and wanted to help.
Hotel has resteraunt attached open to locals from early for breakfast until well into evening.
Batroom was fine and very clean, with shower and Bidet.
Only real complaint was that noise did carry very easily in hotel from one room to another, so if you are unlucky with inconsiderate guests you might be kept awake.
Me I sleep through anything., beds them selves very comfy
