Pension Hidalgo Alcaudete Reviews
A convenient and pleasant stopping point Oct 24, 2010
I didn't mean to stop at Alcaudete, a nice enough place in Jaen Province clearly visible from the main road - I saw it from the bus and walked back from the next stop. I had meant to stay in Jaen but for once I failed to find anywhere suitable in the Rough Guide.
I had to get to Malaga next day but it was quite late and I decided to find somewhere on the way.
Websites leave some mystery about whether it is a 2* hotel or a pension. Whichever it is, I found it very comfortable and the meals were OK. I had the largest almond I have ever seen as a tapa (free) with a beer.
Just opposite there is a road leading to an old castle with a view over an olive growing area. I was amused to find the offices of the PPP and of the Communist Party almost together.
I would cheerfully stay again.
