Nuria Hotel Escaldes-Engordany Reviews
Inexpensive, a bit run-down, but great staff & location Dec 30, 2008
Not a bad location, despite showing up as Andorra la Vella on most booking sites, this is actually in Escaldes-Engordany. Not that you need to worry too much about that, upon first glance they are basically the same town.
The Hotel is inexpensive, and the first two nights we had a room with a bidet and a sink, but not toilet. On our third night, we had to switch rooms due to some booking issues (we didn't mind, initially we thought we were going to have to find a new hotel), our new room did have a toilet too (we still had to use the public shower though). Due to the hassle, they gave us this room for the same rate.
Back to the location, it is in walking distance (well, really, everything in Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany are within walking distance) but this is pretty close to Caldea, the spa inside the interesting pyramid-looking building. There are also restaurants and shops there. The bus stop for the L2, L3 and L4 buses is very close too, and the stop for the L5 and L6 lines is near Caldea. With these two bus stops, one can get to anywhere in Andorra, well, anywhere that is accessible by road anyway.
Staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant - definitely off set the older/run-down feel of the place. Biggest negative would be the showers, not so much because they were public (we knew we were staying at an inexpensive place) but they were a bit dirty, and rather small. The other negative, the buttons on the TVs were removed, so the remote control was necessary to watch TV, there was a €30 deposit for the remote. We circumvented this by using the non-brush end of my toothbrush to change channels.
All in all, not bad for the price.
