Hotel Montecarlo is an adequate lower-middle-range hotel, when the price is right (though it can be overpriced, especially during peak season). The highlight here is the location -- right in the heart of the historic center, within walking distance of virtually all major attractions, restaurants, bars, and shopping. The building itself is also a plus: It's an 18th-century traditional structure built around two typical Andalusian patios, featuring tiles and whitewash. But most rooms are drab, with dated decor, stippled-finish paint on walls, low-quality bedding, and dingy bathrooms. They do, however, all have minibars, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, and a few have been renovated and have a slightly fresher look (but still nothing to write home about).
