Dear Norberto and Laura,

Greetings from Udias, in Cantabria!

The posada “Sel de Breno” is exceptional. We’re staying in a posada 15 km from Comillas beach.

Comillas is a beautiful place – we want to go sightseeing there, and we want to see all the famous landmarks (Gaudi’s Capricho, etc). The price of the room is very low. It’s a little posada with only 5 rooms, but it’s quiet and clean. There’s free wi-fi and free parking.

We’re in a double room. There’s a private bathroom, with a shower, towels, a hairdryer  and tioletries. There isn’t a gym or a swimming-pool, but there’s a beautiful garden.

Brealfast is included in the room rate. It’s fantastic, I love it!

Blanca, the manager, is a good chef. She’s very funny and patient with the guests.

See you soon!

Dear Susana,

I’m staying in a hotel in the centre of Valencia. Its name is Astoria Palace Hotel. It’s a 4-star hotel with 204 rooms. All the rooms are sound-proofed. The rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, a telephone in the bedroom and a bathroom. There is a lounge-bar and a fitness centre. There is a lot of public transport around the hotel.

Ciutat Vell is a great choice for travellers interested in architecture, shopping and food. This hotel is lovely! I recommend it!

See you soon.




Hello Maria!

I’m staying here for two nights.

The hotel is very nice. There are six floors and three lifts. There are a lot of rooms.

My room is clean and quiet and it’s got a bathroom and a shower.

The hotel has got a gym, a sauna and a beautiful garden where I can go walking.
