Location in Balien
Somewhat centrally located to the places we wanted to travel to. We stayed on a Friday night. The walls are so thin that we could hear the person in the room next to us coughing. There were about 15 kids on the street corner from about 11 pm to 3 am and you could hear every word they said. Plus all of there yelling and screaming and racing their mopeds/motorbikes up and down the street all night long. I probably got 3 hours sleep that night. Luckily it was only one night. Plus the tub had hair in the drain...
We had a bath with waterjets. Hotel is nearby a busy road, very noisy. The room is outdated and the carpet in the hall needs to be renewed ! No free parking.
We stayed only 1 night, we do not have any special comments no
there is free parking
Room was warm and comfortable, hotel was easy to find and well located breakfast was poor
No tapas or food in the bar. Only expensive restaurant.
Easy to find location Bed was really uncomfortable. Hotel needs some updating. It is cheap so don't expect much!
Convenient over-night stop Hotel was OK, environment less so
very nice lay out easy to find very comfortable and clean staff very curtious and helpful music on load speakers was a little to loud
The breakfast was very poor (orange, coffee, toast and jam)
Once again enjoyed our stay. The room with a terrace and coffee table was very good. The normal recommendations for the hotel. Fot the first time a problem with evening meal. As normal the Spanish custom of not opening the restaurant until 21.00. We wanted an early start in the morning and wanted and early night. Thanks to Juan who cooked us a quick bar meal we were able to get the early night. Other nationalities were complaining about the late opening.
Matresses and bed linens very poor
The motel was like an oasis in the desert. The town itself is dusty and run down, but the hotel was in green gardens with fountains and finished to a high standard.
the evening meal (menu of the day) was very good the service was ok and it was worth what we paid the breakfast was very poor the rooms where 1970s and in need of up date the shower head did ent work the location was poor we walked up into the town nothing there
Relaxing on our trip from northern Spain (Rioja) to Andalusia(Almeria) as we have done many times at El Salvador. The location is an ideal stopping point for us. We have a well behaved dog which is excluded from the Paradors. If I could venture a small criticism it is that you no longer have rugs on the bedroom tiled floor.
Everything! Helpful staff, lovelylocation. Music in the grounds. Spacious accomodation. Even a bed for our little dog! None.
On check in the price advertised on Booking.com wasn't the price asked for by the receptionist. After some debate the booking.com price was accepted. But this isn't the first time this has happened when booking through this site.
restaurant not open ,so had to eat in bar which was full of old men smoking cigars
The Palacio de Mengibar is an excellent hotel, with great facilities (especially the spa) and wonderful food. It was a bit quiet when we were there but it had only been open 3 months.
Very beautiful old building,fantastic bedrooms,very peaceful.loved it. Restaurent was only open at weekends. some food was available in bar
Areally wonderful building with excellent facilities The restaurant could have been better
How they had blended the architecture of the Castle with a new modern look. The Hotel Staff was extremely friendly and helped in all ways. The only minor issue is the parking space. I stayed there in August which is considered low season and there were only around 15 parking spaces in total and 2-3 free.
The building and spa are fabulous mengibar is not a big tourist town so don't go there expecting to stroll around and find lots of easy to access resturants/shops etc. If you want to stay in a castle and have access to a spa to use Palacio de Mengibar is for you
We loved the atmosphere and the way the place looked. Very comfortable and really added a golden touch to a romantic weekend. The breakfast on Monday morning was in the hotel bar instead of the restaurant and instead of the wonderful buffet we had had the day before we were served a standard breakfast at our table. Granted, you could ask and change things you did not like, but it gave a bad impression that most things were not availabe like the day before.
The hotel was outstanding. Beautifully restored and decorated combining 15th century origins with a luxurious elegance. One of nicest I have stayed in and far better value than the Paradors. Sadly the stay was spoilt by the smell from the Smurfitt Kapper (sic) incinerator that was positioned about a mile away but the stench was terrible when outside or having the windows open and it ruined a perfect hotel stay
Very attractive historical setting. Wonderful spa facilities. We could not book a table for dinner for the evening we arrived. The town has a very small number of restaurants, in fact the hotel could not recommend any good ones that were in walking distance.
The building itself is stunning, the spa very relaxing, the four poster bed was the most comfortable bed we slept in during a 2 week vacation in Spain and the room and bathroom very nicely set up. Its in the middle of nowhere
A superb and beautiful hotel, especially given how little we paid for a night's stay. The Roman/Arab baths were particularily delight and entirely free. The one major problem was that they were obviously not able to open restaurant either because of a lack of custom or staff. However, the town is a lovely place and we could not have enjoyed our stay in Mengibar more. Nothing
I didn't like anything in this hotel. The hotel is not so much clean, rooms were so little than a person can live, beds were uncomfortable, noone can speak English. After all of these, they wanted us extra money for the breakfast. They told us that we ate one bread more and drunk two teas more. The price which caused a problem was just 1 € and I gave 2 € maybe they can need some money to make the hotel better...
nice people, willing to help. poor english, but enough. parking your car is a huge problem.
The standard of cleanliness was excellent, the decor and layout of the room was luxurious and the staff were very friendly. Despite waiting until 9.20 for our breakfast there was still no food available and they confessed that they did not have any for us even though we had paid for half board. We could have had to wait for hours for food as we were the only guests as there was no way of knowing when the hotel supplies would be there. We went hungry that day.
