There Are Freebies

Great For Business Travellers
The design of the hotel and the location makes it more suitable to business travellers, though this is not a bad thing in itself. After you've had your day of meetings it's idea for relaxation; however, it doesn't have a family atmosphere due to lack of attractions.
Facilities On Limited Side
Though the hotel is lovely, facilities are limited. Due to its design, a swimming pool would complete the setting. Nonetheless, this is a matter of personal taste.
Can You Explain What That Is Please?
Foods have fancy names and even the waiters have no idea what they are! The waiters do not appear to be very informed about the restaurant happenings either. For example, if you ask for “soup of the day” your waiter may have to go and ask. And what is Andalucian soup? The waiters need more organisation as well.
Is This a Building Site?
Don't be surprised to find the hotel surrounded by construction work. The area is up-and-coming. The hotel is located adjacent to a train station that is in the throes of being built. The area looks a bit like a building site.
