Expert review of Hotel San Gil
The hotel comprises two buildings - one old and one new - with a splendid garden courtyard area between them, and there are excellent views over the city from the rooftop pool and terrace. I love sitting in the courtyard with a cold beer in the summer and enjoying the quiet.
Near the Macarena gate, and close to the famous Macarena Basilica and the Alameda, this is a good non-touristy option if you want to get away from the crowds and don't mind a 15-minute walk to the central main attractions and shops. You'll find there are lots of good tapas bars and restaurants within about a five-minute walk.
The 85 rooms include double rooms, junior suites and one full suite. The simple traditional décor is well-suited to the spacious modern rooms, which also have nice large bathrooms. Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the gardens. Free plug-in internet access is available in all rooms.
Aside from the rooftop pool and bar there are beautiful gardens with fountains, palm trees, mosaics...and plenty of chirping birdlife! Free WiFi throughout the hotel can be a bit slow at times – and you'll need to ask at reception to gain access.
You can get breakfast at the hotel, but it's more fun to head over to the Alameda or down San Luis towards the centre for some fresh coffee and toast. There is a restaurant and cafeteria at the hotel, which are handy for when you don't feel like venturing out, but you can get better food elsewhere.
Rooftop solarium and pool.
The service is friendly and helpful and most of the reception staff speak English.
Anyone who likes something a bit different, travellers rather than tourists.
Parking is available for 16.20 euros a day – be sure to book this in advance. Breakfast is a 10 euros buffet.
