What’s it like?
This medium-sized guest house is located across the road from the Mezquita, on its southern side. A few minutes’ walk away is the Puente Romano (Roman Bridge) which crosses the river Guadalquivir. The hostal’s name comes from the Puerta del Puente (Bridge Gate), also known as the Arc de Triomphe.

The guest house offers free WIFI in all areas, and its restaurant, which has an outdoor the patio, serves traditional Andalucian food; there is also a bar. It has a cashpoint and a car park.
