Where to Stay in Valladolid, Spain: Boutique Hotel Gareus Review
After visiting Convento de San Jose in Medina del Campo, me and my travel buddies headed to Valladolid City. Castilla y Leon Tourism Office chose Boutique Hotel Gareus (hotel info) as our accommodation in the city. Boutique Hotel Gareus is ranked as the best hotel in Valladolid by our fellow travelers on TripAdvisor, and I completely agree with them.
I previously toured Spain’s Castilla y León with my travel buddies, and although the tour itself was fun, exciting, and spectacular, it was, of course, exhausting as well. With that said, I was glad Spain Tourism Board selected Boutique Hotel Gareus (check rates) as our hotel, because its rooms, amenities, facilities, and overall ambiance, soothed my exhaustion from the tours, and made my stay in Valladolid very convenient, relaxing, and memorable.
The hotel, as its history states, dates back to the early 20th century. It was an old building, but its renovation several years later transformed it into the best hotels in all of Valladolid. Its façade was untouched so that the building gave off a classic, medieval appearance, but the interior design of the hotel is modern and very welcoming.
Boutique Hotel Gareus (discounted rates) is conveniently located near the Plaza Major (at just 300 meters of distance), and I like that the hotel gave that perk to me and my travel buddies, as we didn’t have to wake up too early when we toured Valladolid the following days.
The hotel itself, however, didn’t merely serve as my room for a night—it was my home away from home, and one of the highlights of my trip to Valladolid, Spain.
The facilities and amenities included wireless internet access and an internet corner, a lounge bar, an outdoor terrace, and a public library (you know how much I love books), among the others. The 24-hour reception also provided us information about what to see and do in Valladolid, and the staff was really nice and hospitable. They made our checking-in and checking-out hassle-free, and I thank them for that.
My favorite part of the hotel, of course, was my room. Hotel Boutique Gareus has a total of 41 splendid rooms, and I was very lucky to have slept in one of them.
My room was spacious, clean, and the overall ambiance—from the lighting, to the modern motif and aura of the room—easily invited me every time to a good night’s sleep on my Queen-sized bed. It was all that I needed after our exciting, but nevertheless tiring, walking tours.
Aside from having a large bed, I also had a fairly large bathroom all to myself. I had a bathtub, a huge magnifying mirror, a hair drier (which I don’t need by the way LOL), and yes, even a telephone, inside my bathroom! It was also complete with Gareus bathroom toiletries, so I didn’t have to worry about anything at all during my stay.
The best part of my room, however, was the small private balcony. Although it wasn’t too spacious, I truly enjoy gazing out the window every night before I sleep in all of my tours around the world; the view from my balcony there, in Boutique Hotel Gareus (read real customer reviews), showed me how such a wonderful place Valladolid is, but I couldn’t have appreciated it that much if it weren’t for my stay in this magnificent hotel.
