Hospedería El Caravansar is tucked away up a few steps from Calle San Sabastian. It's a very quaint, traditional hotel, with just a few rooms.
We arrived quite late and following a short phone call, we were met by the owner, Charo. The hotel is a bit like walking back in time, which for me is perfect! She showed us to our room on the first floor, which was very presentable and clean. Complimentary toiletries are provided, including toothbrushes and razors. A safe is located in the wardrobe, which locks with a key (no electronic keyboard!). The air-conditioned room overlooked the small outside terrace, with some limited views across the roof tops to the surrounding mountains. Rooms above ours did have small balconies and if we were to stay again (which I'm sure we will!) we would ask for one of those.
The rooms are cleaned (and beds made) every day. In hotels, we usually opt for a 'do not disturb', but to be honest it was a pleasant 'surprise' to come back to a made bed!
A few metres from the hotel, is a small chapel. Listening to the chiming of the bells, first thing in the morning, was lovely.
An added bonus to the hotel, is that there is an adjoining cafeteria (Caravansar's Coffee), which serves great breakfasts from 9:00 a.m. Unfortunately, it closes on Tuesday, so we couldn't dine there the first morning. However,we did enjoy our breakfast on Wednesday morning. The cafeteria reflects the style of the hotel and is very quaint and inviting.
Hospederia El Caravansar is a family-run business and it is always a delight to see such businesses flourish. I sincerely hope they continue to do so.
