We booked this place for the location and the price 50Euros per night for an en suite room, which was about a third of what we would be paying for a nicer place in the same area.
It is a very central hotel 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral and the Alcazar and dozens of great restaurants and bars. It took us 20-25 minutes to walk to the train station for day trips to Cordoba and Jerez.
The rooms were massive and had 3 beds. Our room looked like it was cleaned and our bins emptied every day although our linen or towels were not replaced. It was basic but had a lovely Spanish looking tiled flooring and tiles in the bathroom which I loved and a beautiful reception area and courtyard which gave it lots of characters. I didn't think the rooms were noisy - our room faced an inner courtyard which was very quiet. The bed was comfortable although had old style springs which were a bit loud when we turned over. There was an air conditioning unit, however, because the room was so big it wasn't very effective and I woke up a few times because it was so hot. The only other downside was the shower which seemed to surge from boiling hot to freezing cold which was annoying. There was also no soap provided for washing hands so remember to take some shower gel and soap!
The people on reception were a bit inconsistent the man who checked us in was fantastic, friendly and helpful despite us knowing hardly any Spanish and him English. The rest of the staff, a woman and an old man were not so friendly. There is also a gorgeous old reception dog that is very placid.
The door is locked at around 1-2am so we made sure we were back by then however that wasn't a problem for us as we had to be up the next day and we found that most tapas places closed around midnight.
