    Telarañas, pelos y decadencia.

    Con ánimo de que la empresa recoja de forma constructiva mi opinión mi estancia en El Ancla no ha sido satisfactoria. Nos hemos encontrado con los pelos del anterior cliente en el suelo del baño y migas en el sobre de la TV. Al día siguiente nos hicieron la habitación mientras desayunábamos y tuvimos que pisar todo mojado; aguantando un comentario desafortunado del empleado. Los pelos seguían en la puerta de la habitación por lo que pensamos que no pasan el aspirador y el mocho pasa de una habitación a otra. Los colchones están destrozados y me caí al suelo de madrugada porque el somier se tumba. Las paredes empapeladas todas despegadas foco de polvo y bichos entre las juntas. Desayuno repetitivo a base de dosis de mermeladas y mantequilla. Nos encontramos una caca grande debajo de nuestra mesa del jardín. Somos conscientes de que el gremio de la hostelería lo está pasando muy mal; pero después de un cierre tan prolongado un hotel necesita un buen fondeo y mantenimiento para cumplir las medidas óptimas de saneamiento.

    Hotel muy justito.

    La habitación no disponía de nevera, si das al jardín puede que te moleste la clientela que esta charlando y tomando algo. Muy buena la ubicación.

    Yo creo que le sobra "media estrella" ; accesibilidad deficitaria, en su momento sería un innovador hotel pero con el paso del tiempo se ha quedado un poco anticuado. Magnífico jardín para desayunar en el y para tomar algo por la noche. Personal amable.

    Que desde su página web, permitan la reserva, envíen una confirmación de reserva y al llegar al hotel a las 23:00 esté cerrado por el Covid me parece una broma de mal gusto. Es cierto que enviaron un mensaje (una hora después de la confirmación) diciendo que se cancelaba la reserva, pero ya estaba conduciendo... creo que una llamada habría sido lo mínimo, o por lo menos que su página no permita reservar hoteles cerrados.... En resumen, fatal

    Buena atención y buen servicio en el desayuno, pero pasamos bastante frío en la habitación, no hay regulación individual.

    Agradable y muy bien ubicado.

    El hotel tiene una buena relación calidad precio y acorde con su categoría. La situación es estupenda para acceder a la playa y al centro de Laredo. Lo único que me ha parecido menos acorde es el tamaño de la habitación y del cuarto de baño, ambos demasiado pequeños.

    Des vacances réussies

    Une jolie station balnéaire avec la plage à 150 m de l'hôtel. Environnement calme et accueillant. Le personnel est vraiment très sympathique.

    J'ai apprécié le jardin de l'hôtel dans lequel le petit déjeuner était servi. L'hôtel en lui même est très bien tenu. La décoration maritime originale. Le personnel agréable. A l'arrivée la chambre pour trois proposée ne correspondait pas à celle vue sur le site Expedia. C'est une erreur du site d'après l'hôtel, qui à notre demande, nous a finalement trouvé une chambre pour trois de taille correcte. Par contre, concernant Expedia ce n'est pas la peine de montrer une photo de chambre avec mezzanine pour trois car en fait cette chambre est pour cinq ou six et donc plus chère, c'est donc limite mensonger car j'ai réservé en voyant cette photo. La propreté est excellente dans cet hôtel. Pour le petit déjeuner, ce serait mieux de clarifier ce que l'on souhaite ou pas pour éviter le gaspillage et mieux correspondre aux vœux des clients. L'hôtel est très bien situé à la fois proche de la plage et du centre à pied. Nous conseillons cet hôtel sans soucis.
