The positives are it was a small comfortable clean room. The heat worked well. It is a good location in the middle of the city. The price was good. The negatives are the bartender for the adjoining bar was the receptionist. He was very busy at that job and not that helpful as a hotel receptionist. I had reserved a no smoking room. There was an ash tray and the room did have a mild smoke smell. The “receptionist” said the maid moves the ash trays as needed and all the rooms were the same. I could see I was getting nowhere with him. As it was now 12 midnite and we were only staying one night, I gave up on the issue. Street parking was a bit of an issue. I found a good spot about 10-15 minutes away. I would not stay here again.

We stayed here for one night on a biking tour through Spain and we stayed here again when we returned to Antequera a few days later. This is a family-run hotel centrally located in downtown Antequera. The room rate was 40 euros for a double, which we felt was a great price given the room quality and location of the hotel.

Our first night, we arrived after a long day of biking and were very tired. There was another couple traveling the same bike route and the hotel was confused about what to do with their luggage. It was placed in our room. They gave us two room keys and asked us to move the luggage ourselves. While we didn’t mind, we had explained to them that we were not associated with a group and were surprised to be asked to take care of what was obviously a hotel issue.

The room we were given was small, but quiet and clean. The shower worked well and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioning, like most in Spain, kept the room cool but not cool enough to be comfortable. Fortunately, the windows open, so if the weather cooperates, you can open the window and cool off the room.

There is a (tiny) lift so there is disabled access if you need it, but the doorways to the rooms and bathrooms are small. We used the stairs.

There is free WIFI in the lobby and restaurant but you won’t get a signal in the room. Unless you ask for a double bed, you will be given two singles. Although others have complained of noise, we asked for a room away from the street and didn’t notice any noise problems. The bar gets very noisy at night but we didn't notice the noise after we came upstairs to go to bed.

We had been cycling all day so we were quite hungry. Fortunately, the restaurant served lunch until 4 PM. The lunches are reasonably priced and included soups, salads, meats, fish and chicken. We opted for the chicken (somewhat bland) and pork chops. Both of these were served with small portions of french fries which were quite good. They have excellent beer on tap and the white wine is similar to all of the wine we had in Spain, light and refreshing, not too sweet.

We returned for dinner and ordered the Spanish meatballs, which were very good and the ½ portion fried fish plate which was enough for dinner (ok, not great) and was served with salad. Both meals came with large baskets of bread and plates of olives.

We asked the waiter to suggest a dessert and he recommended a traditional Spanish dessert which he said was made for the restaurant by his sister. The dessert was excellent and included almonds, some type of fruit (which we understood to be quince) and a light dusting of chocolate. It was one of the best desserts we had while visiting Spain!

The room charge included breakfast one day, but not the second time we stayed, which was confusing. Breakfast is very simple and consists of toast with either butter or olive oil and jam, coffee (excellent with steamed milk) and juice. There is a full bar just inside the hotel door and past that is the restaurant. Avoid the locals at the bar and sit in the restaurant. It is quieter and the patrons, many of whom appear to be regulars, are not as rude.

The prices for food and in the bar are quite reasonable. It is 1 euro for a cup of coffee and 1.50 for a draft beer. The lunch and dinner prices range from 5 to 10 euros depending on whether you opt for the full or half portion.

The staff here is particularly friendly and helpful. The maid greeted us each time she saw us and the waiters in the restaurant and bar provided excellent service (a surprise in Spain). The manager is usually around working so if you have any questions or problems he can resolve them. He speaks a little English which can be helpful if you don’t speak any Spanish.

The hotel has parking approximately 3 blocks away if you bring a car. Parking on the street is impossible as in most cities and particularly in Spanish cities where the streets tend to be very narrow. We saw many cars damaged while parked on the street, so bite the bullet and pay for the parking. The hotel charges 8 euros per night. We investigated and found that the parking in the City lots is actually more. The hotel will direct you to the parking and give you an automatic garage door opener so that you can come and go as you please.

The hotel staff is relaxed and eager to ensure that your visit is pleasant. There is a grocery store within one block, a bakery with coffee (try this on Sunday as the hotel restaurant and bar are not open Sunday), a take-away pizza and food place across the street, and several ATM’s within a block. There are many restaurants and bars withing walking distance and many shops selling clothing, art, paper supplies, etc. near the hotel.

The Renfe is about 2 km distance and you can walk depending on your inclination and amount of luggage. There is spot across the street where many taxis wait for fares, so you should have no problem getting a taxi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.

Yes its noisy in Antequera but then its a Spanish town - friendly staff and clean room - parking is difficult and yes there is parking for the hotel but its extra - if we go back we would stop there again but make sure we had a room off the main road

Room Tip: Off the main road is best

We had stayed one week in nerja (see other review under marinas de nerja hotel) and had booked 2 nights in antequera at the Hotel Castilla. Antequera was much bigger than I expected and very noisy with traffic, particularly those horrendous scooters which are everywhere in this region. However it had an interesting old town, quiet! and a fascinating castle and fortress to explore. Because of the noise we only stayed one night - the hotel castilla was extremely noisy at night, even though we had a room on the side. We could still hear the traffic, the windows were not double glazed, and even more disturbing was the sound of a garage or apartment block door being opened and closed several times during the night - with a very loud clatter and banging. The plumbing in the hotel was also very disturbing, clanking pipes and rushing water sounds. Not a wink of sleep was had! The room was very basic (of course we had been spoiled at the Marinas de Nerja) and rather gloomy. The only good thing was the friendliness of the owners and the food, which was excellent and reasonably priced. Parking in Antequera is horrendous but the hotel provides parking nearby for 7 euros a day. I suppose you could say you get what you pay for, as the room was only 40 euros per night, but for me a good night's sleep is essential. So we moved on to 'El Chorro and on the way there we found Casa Anna, a lovely B & B in a quiet spot, ensuite, tea and coffee in the room, comfortable, outside seating area, delicious breakfast. with English bacon. All for 50 euros. Many thanks to Linda and Mick, the English owners. So, if you don't mind noise and want to stay in the heart of a city, choose Hotel Castilla, but if you want peace and quiet, but be close to a town (Alora was only a short drive away, a very Spanish town, lovely) and close to El Chorro with its gorgeous lakes and stunning gorge, go for Casa Anna!
