TERRIBLE///// We have travelled and stayed in a lot of hotels in Spain and this has to be the worst. First upset was that the reception could not speak English and had to show me the reservation paper to make sure it was my reservation with my name on it.. As the hotel is in the middle of nowhere the option to eat outside the hotel was very limited so it had to be the hotel restaurant....IF IT HAD OF BEEN OPEN// We decided rather than go hungry we would eat in the bar. The menu was very basic and getting the barman to understand was another issue as he didn't speak English and the menu was only in Spanish Opting for a burger and chips it was then. (I have said that the receptionist and barman didn't speak English and some people will say that we are in Spain so we should speak there language. But....if these type of hotels want to attract the international traveller then they should at least learn or employ staff that speak the international language). There was no hotel information in the rooms or any information about the restaurant and what time breakfast was served. Back to the bar, which was full of locals and children, which obviously wasn't a problem. What was a problem was trying to eat when everyone was glued to the tv watching a disgraceful bullfight and cheering when the idiot matador stuck his sword into the helpless animal. AND THIS IS 2019 EUROPE. absolutely shocking and distressing watching animal cruelty being shown in a hotel bar.. I would like to say some good things about this hotel but sadly I cannot. The wifi was weak, the rooms were basic and cold, The air con would not switch off unless switched off from the fuse bourd. The hotel is well dated and only worthy of a 1 star. I think photoshop has done a great job enhancing the hotel and rooms for the online hotel booking sites. Save your money.

This hotel has seen better days but somehow has the charm of the 70s. The room was ok in size but without views, bed ok, I had a quiet sleep. Breakfast is served at the table, the Andalusian style, where you order toasted bread with some olive oil or tomato or butter and marmalade, together with an orange juice and a cup of coffee, that's all. The location is convenient if you are travelling by car, but not so nice if you wish to explore the city as you have to bypass some abandoned factory buildings first with a chance to meet some young guys you rather prefer not to make acquaintance with.

The Zodiaco, I'm not quite sure how to describe it. I found the food OK, but served in the cafeteria as the restaurant was used for private parties. The wifi signal is very week and intermittent. The walls are paper thin and the sounds of passion could be heard quite clearly from neighbouring rooms, this was probably balanced by my snoring! I would not recommend this establishment.

I have never given a 1 star rating before - but then i have never had to sleep in a dirty bed before! The hotel is situated very close to the motorway between Madrid and Malaga so is very convenient and my reason for choosing it. I arrived in the late afternoon and was greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist who spoke quite good English - which was a relief as my Spanish is not great. I'm afraid that is about as good as this hotel gets. I was given a room on the first floor which had two single beds. The room also had wifi which worked pretty well and i was able to get some work done soon after arriving. Around 7pm other guests started to arrive and i found the first problem - paper thin walls. I was able to hear every word of their conversations and even their bathroom habits. After putting up with the noise (there seemed to be 6 of them in adjoining rooms and they were all chattering at once) I took a shower before going downstairs to get something to eat. The shower worked ok and the bathroom was generally quite clean but very tired and certainly needs updating. When i got downstairs I was told that the restaurant was closed but the bar served some food so i went in there as there seemed to be nothing else in the vicinity of the hotel. Although i was only the second guest in the bar, my presence was greeted by the surly barman as an invasion of his private territory and when i got served, it was definitely without a smile. The beer was nice and cold though. I chose a few items of tapas - tortilla which was poor, something else that I can't even recall - it was so bad - and some sliced ham which was pretty good. Another beer and a snarl from the barman and I was out of there. After doing a bit more work i decided to go to bed as i needed to be up early the following day. (this is where it gets nasty) When i pulled back the top cover, there was a clean white top sheet and when i pulled that back i was met with a disgusting sheet covering the mattress. It was stained brown and looked quite unhealthy. It looked to me as though it was a( very old and b) that someone had slept in it for quite some time and had been sweating a lot. The other bed didn't look much better so I went downstairs to try to change rooms but couldn't even find anyone on reception. The place was in the dark and seemed to be deserted. So i reluctantly slept on top of the clean looking top sheet with the bedspread over me. I was up before dawn the next day and got the hell out of there as soon as i could. I tried to explain to the night porter (who had obviously returned to his post by the time i left) what the problem was but my poor Spanish and his lack of English meant the message didn't get across. My fault for not brushing up on my Spanish rather than his for not speaking English. So, convenient location if you have been driving from northern Spain and need somewhere to stay but nothing else to recommend i'm afraid.
