This hotel is an interesting mix of old and new. Our room was located in the new, modern section of the hotel. Friends we were travelling with had a room in the older section and found it to be quite cold. I had problems with the very low level of lighting in our room as my eyesight is not very good. It was difficult to shower without getting a degree of water onto the bathroom floor, and my husband found the basin awkward to use as there was no way to close the drain to keep water in the sink. Our included breakfast looked appetizing enough, but we found that the foods which were supposed to be hot were barely warm, if that. The location of the hotel is good, being a short walk from the Plaza Major.
The hotel is placed in a nice house. However, most room are located in a new wing that doesn't have the charm of the old wing, which seems to be more for suite rooms. Our experience in general was good although we were a bit disappointed being in the new wing of the hotel, which felt a bit soulless. Reception was OK but it seemed to be placed in a way not very accessible or inviting. They were not proactive at all but they responded when asked. The patio, the nicest part of the building, was a passing area at that time, a pity because it would be nice to be used for a better purpose. The continental breakfast that was included in the price was not standard with other continental breakfasts. It had no proteins and you needed to have something else afterwards. Our package included a one-hour stay in the spa. The spa is small and no more than 6 people were allowed, which was nice. It is very simple but for one hour is fine. There was a guy using the Scottish shower that started shouting for obvious reasons and later went to the sauna. After a while, someone from the massage department came to ask if we were going for a massage. Once we said no, she started telling us off about the shouting. We told her there were six people there and we didn't know why she was talking to us. She was a bit rude. Regarding the room, my major complaint, apart from a small detail, is related to the light switches. The ones on my side of the bed could turn off the light of the bathroom but they could not turn it on. Weird. Since they were also the buttons to lift or lower the blind, it was very easy to start moving the blind when trying to turn on/off a light. Also, the ones on my side moved the blind by half an inch. What for? On the contrary, the switches on the other side of the bed would move the blind totally up or down with no possibility of stopping. It felt like a Blake Edwards film whenever we tried to turn on/off any light. To top things up, the shower had the shower controls almost outside the shower but you didn't know which one was the right one as there was no signal. As a consequence, if you were unlucky to turn on the one in the middle, a jet of water would hit you and wet the whole room, as the hand shower was pointing towards the end of the bathroom. The water was cold so it was funny but annoying. If I come back to Almagro I will probably give it a try to either El Parador or another hotel with more historical personality, even if it's not so cool, as well as with more attention to detail.
Our Family stayed at this wonderful place in Almagro. Quite with nice colonial style with traditional decorations, including a new modern part. Very good service, large and new rooms, best breakfast in town and very close to the "Plaza". We also tried the SPA, which has a perfect atmosphere. Just go there.
This hotel is located about 10-minute walk from the Plaza Major and there is ample parking on the street. Almagro is a lovely town and made an excellent stop on our way down to Granada. We were planning to stay only one night but decided to stay a second night. The hotel is very nice inside, with a historical part and a modern addition. We had a room in the modern part. It was very nice, luxurious and bright. Not being from the high tech generation we found some of the lighting and automated curtain system confusing to operate. The wifi was good and reliable. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. Staff members were courteous and helpful, and gave us good tips for places to eat.
A charming hotel in the middle of nowhere. Interesting little town and very good and easy roads to get there from Madrid. Room was quaint and staff hospitable with good suggestions for evening meal. Would recommend. Price about 90 euros bed and breakfast.
Should you be near to Almagro following the adventures of Don Quixote - or - like ourselves ... en-route from the southern coast via Córdoba to Madrid. And you've popped a pin in the map for a place to stay ... ... Well, oh my, what a pin! This hotel is an absolute must. The exterior belies what is inside - in fact you may just walk past. This renovated building has an old wing and an extremely modern wing. We were in the modern part in, I think, in a basic room which was, in my opinion, more that basic. Very stylish and sleek but not overly minimal. Very comfy bed and pillows provided a slumber-filled nights sleep. The invigorating shower certainly wakes you up for the day ahead. We opted for breakfast which is great value and provided enough sustenance for the whole day. Service from checking in and throughout was swift and courteous. As I've said if you are chasing Don Quixote (or not) this hotel is an absolute must.
We took at package that included the stay, dinner, breakfast and SPA. We were lucky and got bumped to a superior room. The room was very clean and comfortable, but the beds (2x2 double bed) and pillows are fantastic! Very nice breakfast and the aervice was excelent (thanks Carmen). Almagro is beautiful! One of the few towns in La Mancha that has managed to keep intact its nature... Very charming!
A nice mix of authentic and modern architecture. Perfect for couple holidays : Quiet and clean. Spa is good to spend one hour. People are really nice and serviciable The hotel is close from Almagro center, so you can visit all by walking Great value !
I my husband and 9 month old son were en route to Madrid and decided to stop over for the night. We had selected Almagro and this particular hotel because the pictures posted online were quite nice. The hotel itself has 4 sections - modern, Spanish, rustic and another one I can't remember! Anyway, we stayed in a one bedroom apartment and this is how it looked - you walked into a rectangular living room that had a fireplace and 2 very cosy chairs. The stereo system was very hip and the mini bar had the best liquor ever ( you'd faint if you heard the price - 12 euros for a bottle of good cava!!). The bathroom had a great jacuzzi for 2 people and was quite spacious.The living room opened into the bedroom that had a king-sized bed. We had asked for a crib and they had placed it there. The bedroom had another small room to keep luggage, a safe , linen, etc. The layout was extremely well-designed and gave a awesome sense of space. All this for Euro 200!!! the hotel has a spa, you had to book the massages in advance. The pool is a heated one so great even in winters. The service was excellent! We needed a baby chair and they had one delivered to the room. Breakfast was excellent - eggs, meats, fruits, breads, ! All in all, its a wonderful place to stay. i wish we had another day there! Would recommend this to all.
I stayed at this hotel because it was recommended and booked for me through a bird guide. Vicente told me that they spoke English and that he thought we would be comfortable there. The next time we stay in Almagro for a birding expedition, we will stay in this hotel again!! The king bed in the Designer room was amazing!! When you lay down the bed absorbs all your movement and you are asleep in moments. My wife said that I didn't snore while asleep in that bed. The shower was a double rain pan-head. Whaaat??? I really felt pampered! I am from Las Vegas and have seen hundreds of hotels, there were features in this hotel in the Designer room that I have not seen before! The other two types of rooms are rustic (traditional) and Modern... If there is anything more modern in those rooms than what we had in the Designer room, I cannot even imagine what it might be... Robots? Seriously, even if you have to take a train out of the way, this hotel is worth the trip. Oh yes, the birds are spectacular!!
