In the city centre, in easy walking distance of the Noria District for restaurants and nightlife, Calle Castillo for shopping, and the Auditorio and Teatro Guimerá for concerts and theatre. The bus stops nearby, with buses every 10 mins to Las Teresitas beach.
Rooms are small on space and views but big on style and comfort, with contemporary aluminium and wood design in muted tones of grey and silver, with a splash of colour provided by natural fabrics in shocking pink or crimson. Suites give more floor space in the bedroom and have a retro-style lounge with soft, deep velour seating. All rooms have free WiFi, flat screen TV and stereo and, unusually for Spanish hotels, tea and coffee making facilities are provided.
Everything smells and feels fresh, good quality and brand new. The glass and chrome lobby softens its clean, grey lines with long beige sofas and chunky low wooden coffee tables. There’s an efficient elegance about the uncluttered space.
Eating and drinking
The breakfast buffet has only cold choices, including deliciously sinful breads and pastries; hot food is cooked to order in two shakes of the chef’s spatula so everything is fresh. The hotel incorporates a Nhube restaurant which is über cool with New York Deli type banquettes and a small menu of fresh ingredients cooked simply.
There’s a rooftop terrace with a small fitness area and a Jacuzzi where you can relax with fabulous views over the city to the tower of the Iglesia de La Concepción and the trendy Noria district.
A business hotel atmosphere where the staff are all very polished, efficient and super knowledgeable about the local area. However, little English is spoken.
