What an amazing experience at the Casa Grande! My sister and I stopped over for a night on our way from Madrid to Granada (Renfe stops in Ciudad Real & Almagro). We were working remotely and the wifi was reliable for the most part, though I would ideally recommend a leisurely stay. Beautiful hotel with a serene atmosphere- a perfect place for respite from bustling city life. Breakfast was self serve from 8-11; I enjoyed a pan con tomate with olive oil & jamón. The staff was incredibly helpful, kind & accommodating. The plaza mayor, with plenty of delicious food options is a quick walk away along the peaceful cobblestoned streets (the tarta de queso manchego at the cafeteria Marques is a must). Fun fact: Almodóvar filmed Volver at the hotel. Me encanta la casa grande! Inolvidable lugar y gente phenomenal.…
Located in the old town and a few minutes from the main square. Has a roofed over courtyard where a good breakfast is served. Rooms are clean and functional Pain was not a problem in the surrounding streets but not easy outside the hotel.
Having got used to the French hotel star rating being meaningless, we are now finding that it is similar in Spain. That this hotel is rated 2 star is ridiculous – its easily three or more. Our lack of Spanish met the receptionist’s lack of English with smiles al round and eventual understanding. And this is the mark of a really good hotel – where the staff want to do all they can to make the guests stay enjoyable. And this it certainly was. Whoever sorted the décor here has marvellous imagination; it’s a fusion of the traditional in look with the modern in functionality. The hotel is well appointed with plenty of places to sit and relax. We didn’t use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. Our breakfast in the central courtyard was delightful. Parking was easy in the street outside (but spaces are very limited) and we will definitely return sometime.…
Unexpectedly good and modern comfort, including wifi, very good breakfast and swimming pool. Being inside you're feel as if in museum, but private enough. Even seeing minimum of the city one has a definitely positive impression of it, really having been inside! Great place to stay.
Really lovely, welcoming pleasant staff. Beautifully decorated with lovely bits and pieces everywhere! (a treadle sewing maching outside our room just fitted its place!) It was quirky and fun. Lovely swimming pool and I relaxed on a padded chair round it. Good breakfast, aided by such nice staff! Just a short wander to Plaza Mayor where there was a good cheese shop (bought a whole Manchego!). Excellent location
An old nice hotel in the city center with pool, but unfortunately too few beach chairs. Breakfast OK, but the Spanish way, lots of cakes, no hot dishes. The only complaint was the light in the room, ceiling lights 25 W no reading lights. For older hard to see when you should dress in the evening. Nice staff
Love the place and the staff. Good combination of comfort ,Will defininetely be returning. Nothing to envy with hotels twice the cost in town. Plus easy parking lot around the corner. Easy going rest, loved it
Lovely hotel very quirky with lots of surprises and little sitting areas. Nice pool area. Breakfast excellent. Would recommend to anyone. Locate right in centre of Almago. Parked in street outside no problem. Staff very friendly. Rooms are comfortable Wifi is good and air con worked a treat.
Only about a block and a half away from the main square in Almagro, this lovely XVI century building in the historic section is a quiet hotel with a central patio where breakfast is served in the morning. It´s not hard to park nearby and there are rooms on the ground floor if you cannot manage steps. There is a small pool with a few lounge chairs. In this city known for classical theater, we were pleasantly surprised with a classical monologue over breakfast, using a willing guest to help out. It was fun. The only suggestion I can make is to have a bit better lighting in the bedside lamps for those who read at night. I would definitely return to this hotel.
I stayed at Casa Grande in July 2013 with my wife and two children (7 and 10), and we had an absolutely wonderful experience. We came to Almagro for just one night so we could attend a play during the famous summer theatre festival, and we really wished we had booked a few more nights. Casa Grande is a delightful, small hotel with loads of old-world charm, and all the amenities you would expect from an upscale boutique hotel. We were impressed with every aspect of our experience here. The staff members were very friendly and welcoming, but at the same time they they were unobtrusive. It did feel, as one other reviewer has commented, a bit like staying at your own place. Our room, the Rocinante Suite, was excellent, and very comfortably slept two adults and two children (see my photos of the suite). At 160 Euros, it seemed to us like a very good deal, especially since we stayed during a very busy time. This particular suite has a well appointed bedroom, a large living area with two twin-sized, convertible sofas and a large flat-screened TV, and a lovely bathroom with walk-in shower. Everything was spotlessly clean, and full of charm, as I mentioned above. We loved the tile floors, and the the assortment of furniture and knicknacks that were used to decorate the room. Our room looked out onto the very attractive pool, but we did not hear any noise at all from other guests. The air condition worked wonderfully, and we slept very well despite the blazing heat outside. The bed and convertible sofas were very comfortable. The hotel's common spaces are also wonderful and very well appointed. The small lobby is cozy and charming, the covered patio where a very good breakfast is served (and included in the room price) is pleasant and comfortable, and the sitting area just off the pool is gorgeous and posh. The pool is small, but very nice (a real treasure on a blazing hot day), and we used it quite a bit despite our short stay. As you can imagine, the kids absolutely loved it. Like the rest of the hotel the patio is decorated with an eccentric assortment of attractive objects that imbue the place with a very unique feel. The hotel's locating is hard to beat: just a few blocks from the fabulous Plaza Mayor and all the the theatre venues, but the street it is located on is very quite and peaceful. Almagro is a very safe and tranquil town, and it is worth a vista just to stroll around and soak in the ambience of Old Spain. I will not even bother looking for another place to stay in Almagro when I return. This is the place!!…
