On arrival, we were greeted and welcomed by the host. He took us to a more modern room in the next building which was nice but lacked the character that had made me choose this hotel in the first place. It turns out that next door is their new hotel. Even though I had booked Ca'n Simo, we had been put in Ca'n Vent.
However, the host moved some things around and we were very quickly put back in C'an Simo.
Our room was beautiful and just like the website pictures.
Great location, close to bus stops, Tourist Information and inside the the Old Town.
Breakfast was nice, served between 9-10:30. We were told to ask for anything that wasn't there.
Overall, this is a lovely hotel. I think it is a touch over priced due to the following reasons...
- the noise level in our room (ground floor, next to the lobby). We could hear everything outside late at night and early morning. Also there was noise from the lobby and restaurant.
- the shower was quite weak and I think became weaker when others in the hotel were showering.
- the bed was quite hard and a bit uncomfortable (this could just be personal preference)
- the small swimming pool was located in the middle of the courtyard/restaurant, therefore no one wanted to use it. The hotel could maybe think about adding a curtained off walkway/corridor along the wall from the pool to the inside of hotel. With a bit of privacy to get in and out, this pool might be more usable.
Pros: It's traditional and beautiful decor. Friendly hosts.
Cons: Lower noise level in the downstairs bedroom.
Make the mattress a bit softer.
Improve shower strength.
Make the pool more private.
Location: Great location inside the beautiful old town walls. 2 minutes from the bus stops and tourist information. 30 mins walk from the beach.
