Nice modern room, well-situated
Posted Mar 29, 2015
Really nice modern room, ultra clean, literally two minutes' walk from the sea, in a small street very close to bars. Lively but - out-of-season - not noisy. Small seaside town. Lots of restaurants and shops, but no tacky ones. By early evening I was hungry and fancied a drink, and so did many local people. The bars were all lively, and it seemed that many people head there for a drink and some tapas (or that local unpronounceable word with an 'x' where it shouldn't ought to be) after work. People in the bars were friendly and it is very nice to walk into small bars and always get a nod or a 'buenas' from the person on the next stool. The house red was excellent and the bar-top tapas really tasty.
This is a small hotel in a narrow thoroughfare right in the centre of town, so don't expect parking. It is in a pedestrian-only street, just off the main street, in a 'no parking' zone. So don't be tempted. However, there is an underground car park just across the street. Drive in, get a ticket from the automatic barrier. Park, take your bag to the hotel. Out-of-season you may find a notice on the door asking you to walk a hundred metres across the square to an unpronounceable restaurant. There's a small door next to it, and if you go up one flight of stairs, you'll find the reception for Hotel Olatu. Then park 300m away in a (free) blue zone instead.
My satnav didn't show the small street, but signs direct you. The hotel is in the very far north west corner of town.
