Arcos de la Frontera: Marques de Terresoto


* Click to book this hotel online

Reviewed by: kathyk from MI, review #3192

When: March 2012

Basic comfort in an older hotel. {2 stars}

50 euros per night, in March, for double occupancy.

We found this hotel online and chose it above others because of the photos of the interior courtyard and the low price. The photos were pretty representative but the hotel is a little down on the heels. That does not discourage us but it may others.

Negatives: no elevator but rooms are no further away than one flight of stairs, no views from the window, very small tv screen and few channels.

Advantages: in the middle of old Arcos, more economical than the other "nicer" hotels yet within very close range of them, clean rooms and bathrooms, good restaurant for breakfast, lunch and cena in the interior patio courtyard , nice staff, old timey, 1970's-like atmosphere.

We stayed here two nights to be able to explore Arcos. It is a typical Spanish hotel in that you have to take some personal responsibility for your own comfort. In one of the bathrooms, the water ran constantly and noisly in the toilet. We advised them but their only solution was to move the couple to another smaller room. We fixed the problem by turning off the toilet valve during the night, back on for use. They were happy with us - but it did not translate into a discount for our ingenuity.

I would reccomend this hotel if you can abide by the above type of situations.
