A unique ambience may be enjoyed from the balconies of this hotel where constant sea breezes blow in from the harbour.

This comfortable little hotel, which shares some facilities with the adjoining Hostal Valencia, is housed in an eighteenth century building which belonged to the family of Don Pedro Regalado Pedroso y Zayas, who was a ?Comendador de la Orden de Isabel la Católica?. The Hostal Valencia has become so popular that it is often frustratingly fully booked, but the Comendador is, if anything, even better, and certainly quieter, although it is slightly more expensive.
Located on a coveted corner, near the charming Plaza de Armas and nearby Plaza de San Francisco, El Comendador provides easy access to many other interesting points typical of the historic core.
