Not much to see - except the stars - with the ceiling window but gives you a lovely feeling. One more note regarding the hotel : take the information e-mail …

One of the great hotels I've stayed :) Location is perfect; you can walk everywhere; Plaza Mayor and all the major churches and monuments are just a few minutes away; you get good food around the cafes and restaurants... The ladies at thereception are very friendly and helpful and speak good English...

So if you're arriving with your car, take that e-mail serious and don't forget to make a parking reservation.
