Stayed here for four nights. Clean , modern interior, fast efficient lift, two in fact. We were on the fourth floor with a wonderful view over the roof tops of the towers of the basilica which was very close, they were lit up at night and looked wonderful. Lovely room and very comfy beds. Breakfast very good but sadly cooked... More

Good standard hotel just in the heart of Zaragoza, few meters away from El Pilar, shops and restaurants (calle del tubo just few meters away). The building is really nice, an ancient palace that has been rebuilt maintaining some original parts. Rooms clean and quite big, service nice and assorted breakfast buffet.

The Catalonia El Pilar sits in a small square ideally situated for getting around Zaragoza. We took a taxi from the airport, which cost just under €24 and took about 20 mins. Reception is good and very helpful with information and booking tables for dinner. Our room was to the front of the hotel, overlooking the square with 2 small... More

Heading up to the Rioja wine country we decided to fast-train it out of Barcelona and pick up a car from Zaragoza. We saw El Pilar on TripAdvisor and booked in advance. A short taxi ride from the station, we were dropped to the door and met with a friendly welcome from Jorge. The hotel looked nice from the word... More

We really enjoyed our two night stay here. Friendly, helpful staff, a good tasty breakfast, excellent location and a good price. Yes, there was a party somewhere in the neighbourhood but that is Spain. Yes, there is no in-hotel parking but that is Zaragoza and its traffic free city plan. There was a special discount for breakfast and discounted parking... More

Dropped in on spec as we were enroute back to UK. The receptionist was very helpful and nice. He showed us the room prior to us checking in. The room was similar to most corporate hotel bedrooms. Can agree with some other critisim re star rating. The Hotel does not have its own parking, you need to use on street... More

This is our second trip to the Catalonia el pilar and since our last visit we now have a 14 month old daughter. The hotel is fantastic the location is just off the main square in the centre of Zaragoza. So all the shops and restaurants are right on the door step. We were able to check in from 12... More

The room was very good with a lovely bathroom. The breakfast located on the lower floor was more than plentiful and quite a good selection of hot and... More

My stay at the hotel was ok. Best things about it is the location - it is in the middle of the cultural centre of Zaragoza. People at the reception were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing, but it could be served only from 07:00 which was a bit too late for us... Anyhow... What i didnt like... More
