The pension is located at the 3rd floor of the XIX century building with the tiny old-fashioned elevator where two people and their luggage could hardly fit into. There are a hall and a several rooms, fashioned in a bit odd, but pleasant mixture of old Spanish, Arabic and even a little English style.
Our room was not very large, but there was plenty of space for everything we need. There were en-suite bathroom, a wardrobe, an LCD TV, an airconditioning and a tiny balcony with forged railings, facing the quiet and cozy Calle Cervantes (5 to 10 minutes walk to the Gold Triangle). There were blinds on the window, so if it is hot, you can shut them to prevent sun to overheat the room. Also you can use airconditioning, but our host Jorge (he don't speak English, only spanish :) told us to use it only when we're in the room and windows are closed.
There were no shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom, however there was a piece of organic soap. The sink was English-styled - with two separate faucets for hot and cold water.
We found out that the free electric outlets were available only in very odd places - one in the bathroom and other just behind the ceiling.
The staff was very friendly and tried to help us in any manner. Despite our host Jorge did not speak English, that was not the great problem, because we managed to understand Spanish a little :) There were also two other men who speaks English. One man's name was Antonio, and second's man name was unknown for us, but he looked just like Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, hehe :)
