I stayed here for Two nights, the place does what it says on the tin, it is well place it was clean and our room was above a shop that sold coffee and cakes.
Lovely place to stay, it is basic, no fridge, no coffee marker, but with loads of cafes near by
The room was general speaking comfortable with a few issues that needed sorting. Mattress comfortable, if a little hot in the night - memory foam but the pillows where flat and uncomfortable. Small room and bathroom but very very clean and well looked after. The coffee & cake shop has wonderful food BUT most of the staff seemed to be very lovely to Spanish people and very stoney faced to English speaking people! On the hole great value for money and and very central to everything.
This is a fairly new, immaculate, and very reasonably priced hotel. The room and bath are small, but serviceable, clean, and very attractive with a bright white, grey and turquoise color scheme and atractive turquoise tiles. Our room had french door type windows that looked out over the street. There is a little bakery next door and restaurants along the street. We walked easily to the ferry for our day trip to Tangier. While there is no parking, you can unload the car and there is a free public lot nearby. We were there in March, it was fairly quiet, but the windows don't block out all the noise. At a busy time, rooms off the street would probably be a quieter option
We booked to stay here on New Year's Eve - we visit Tarifa quite often but have never stayed over and fancied seeing what the nightlife was like.
The hotel is in a prime spot in the old town near the cathedral (and next door to THE best bakery, Pasteleria Bernal). It's a modern hotel with lovely tiled decor throughout.
Our room was at the back of the building with internal windows overlooking the small courtyard. It was a decent size with a very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom with a good selection of toiletries plus a hairdryer.
There's no restaurant or any tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms but there are plenty of places to grab a coffee, beer or bite to eat within walking distance.
As it was New Year's Eve there was a stage set up outside the cathedral with entertainment going on until the early hours - we didn't manage to party quite as long as the locals so didn't have the best sleep as the music was loud but that's not the hotel's fault and was the only downside.
I'd definitely stay here again (although perhaps not on New Year's Eve!).
First I stayed in the Superior Double Room with Terrace. Later, extending my stay I managed to get a slightly smaller Double Room.
My initial habitation had it's own terrace, offering privacy and a nice setting to hang out, chill, or read a book during the sunny hours of the day. It was late fall at the time of my visit, so evenings became quite chilly with the earlier setting sun.
This room was more spacious than the room I would occupy later during my stay. It was sunlight flooded by afternoon, despite the windows facing a inner courtyard. You are on the top floor of this building. The white walled rooms, as well as staircase and the entrance are nicely decorated with tiles 'Azulejos', typical for this region. Great shower too!
The second, the Double Room I stayed in was a bit more compact. It's window faced the inner courtyard too, but now I was a floor lower, so it wasn't quite as brightly lit. Never the less, I was quite comfortable here to. I had a small desk to work on my laptop, so I was happy. The wifi was good.
The staff and the owners, I had the pleasure of meeting, where helpful and accommodating.
There is no restaurant within the Hostal premises, but I could walk out the front door, turn left and next door, a few small steps away, there would be a bakery, offering coffee and delicious sweets and a few 'empanadas'.
There are plenty of café's and restaurant nearby, all within walking distance. One of my favorite Tapas Bars was located within the same city block.
My rental car I did have to park a little ways off, outside of the walls of the old city. To find parking in this little town, not unlike other Spanish towns I visited, can be a bit tricky. Be patient...
