I recently stayed four nights for a business function in Valladolid and found the hotel to be a very pleasant experience.
Rooms are surprisingly large and comfortable (I stayed in Room 11 on the ground floor equipped with two single beds) but are a little spartan with wooden flooring and light coloured walls. Sleep quality was good.
The bathroom is large with bath tub, bidet and double sink but no separate shower. The room had no view to speak of overlooking scrub and lawn.
As if often the case in Spain there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room but what is sadly lacking and a pre requisite for a hotel claiming to be five star is an in room safe. That has prevented me from awarding a five star rating and I would have expected a safe in a Marriott property. .
The hotel is some way from the historic centre of Valladolid so maybe not ideal for tourists as there is nothing of interest in the vicinity and you need to order a taxi to go to the city. It was, however, ideal for a business trip or conference.
The gym and small indoor swimming pool were open and breakfast was quite nice albeit with no variation on a daily basis. I ate one night in the restaurant which was very good and good value for money.
Staff throughout the stay were charming and spoke enough English for overseas travellers and I would certainly stay again..
Pre Booked twin room.Given double.Got room at 6.30 pm! Dining room shut. Had to eat in corporate area.(see pic) No bar. Pool shut.TV no international channels. corporate function in only public area. Never again.
Hotel place near the river and nice park (sometimes the are a little smell of the river). Rooms are clean and enough big. From time to time the noise of neighbors' closing doors disturbe.
Staff was v.polite and helpfull and speak english.
In the hotel is swimingpool (it's ok for 1 person - for more is too small). Fitness room is small too near the swiming pool (in the same place/room separated by glass.
Breakfast is good in really nice place (shoud be from 7o'clock but sometime need wait 10min. Not possible to have a scrambled eggs (the have only automat, but eggs are very weak fried).
In front of hotel is a parking on which without any problem you can leave your car.
We stayed here on the way South from Bilbao to Madrid, the Hotel is conveniently located with plenty of outside parking and an underground garage. The room was spacious and very clean with lovely views of the river. The covered central courtyard was a nice place to have predinner drinks. We ate at in the house restaurant and the meal was enjoyable and well prepared.
We made use of the indoor swimming pool and gym . The pool is long enough for serious lap swimming.
We will definitely consider this a hotel next time we are heading to the Costa del Sol.
Five star hotel in the surroundings from Valladolid. A taxi is necessary to reach the City centre. Wide and comfortable rooms. Wide public areas. Fine breakfast. Correct restaurant. Indoors swimming pool. The hotel is built in the remains of an old monastery.
