The location was ok
Their was no English speaking staff and security issues
Great location, quiet yet close to many restaurants and two lovely parks
Great stuff: very nice, always ready to help. Excellent location: quite quiet place, much better in this respect than hotels on Pedro de Valvivia or Avenida Providencia, 10 minutes from the nearest metro station (Pedro de Valdivia), a few small cafés and small convenience stores close to the hotel.
Cleanliness of carpets leaves to desire; all the furniture and TV set seems old and worn
The location is convenient and the environment is good.
Extremely poor attention at the front desk. I needed more than half an hour for the check out. The two ladies in the desk did not pay any attention to the two complains I had about my room: the room had poor ventilation and the water installation in the bathroom was not working correctly. Moreover, they did not help me for reservation of a taxi.
This hotel was clean and well-kept. The breakfast was basic but ample, and we were allowed to continue without hurrying after the advertised dining time, which is always nice! Good location, quiet, apart from the adjacent carpark, which can be busy in the daytime. Very attentive staff.
The room was very clean & tidy but rather small (we changed it to a standard twin on arrival which had not been available at booking time). But the main negative point was that with so many cable tv channels, we couldn´t watch any news in English - CNN was in Spanish only, and the BBC channel had very poor reception with interference from a local station.
The Wi-Fi was not very good on my room. I could barely make a Skype sound call. I had to go to the lobby to make the call.
Our conference was in Hotel Sheraton and it took about 7 minutes to come there. The personal of Hotel Alcala del Rio is very friendly.
Comfort in this hotel does not accord to 4 stars but rather to 3 stars. The equipment in the bath room is too old. There is not any list of paper and any envelop in the room. The breakfast includes the same things all 9 days: one and the same sort of soft cheese, of semi-hard cheese, of sausage and of ham in a form. It is not too bad but not good for 9 days.
