The 38 rooms at the Adagio hotel are all plain and functional, with en-suite bathroom. The rooms have heating and air-conditioning, (although we have had several reports that the air-conditioning was not working properly for some of our site visitors, therefore check before you book if this is important for you), a telephone and a TV with satellite. The bathrooms have a hair dryer. Calle Ferran, on which the hotel is located is a busy street, so if your sleep is easily disturbed then request the rooms at the back of the hotel.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
