Stayed here for one night recently and was very impressed. Location is excellent, right in the heart of the old town. It is easy to get to from the railway station - take bus 34 outside the station and get off at Mercado Central from where it is only a short walk to the hotel. The hotel is in easy... More

The hotel is in the heart of old Zaragoza. Well appointed modern rooms in an older heritage building. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is well located between the main historical sites and the more modern shopping areas. The hotel served good food and the breakfast spread was great. Very competitively priced. Would strongly recommend.

We only spent an over night here but would have stayed longer had our plans been different. The hotel is in a restored historical building near the central attraction in Zaragoza, the Pilar. It's also right down the street from the central market. Parking is in the public parking near the market. I wish there had been a place to... More

we were given room 414 with a nice view of El Pilar, but the room smelled of smoke and it's a pretty small room. I told the gentleman at the front desk, he sent housekeeping with air freshener -- not successful. In the morning, a new gentleman came on duty and allowed me to check out room 407 facing the...

The two good things about this hotel are its location and the value. It says it's a 4 star hotel, but it certainly has no more than three star prices. Book via the hotel website and you get a welcome drink, bottle of water and early/late check in and out. It's very well located, being about 2 to 5 mins... More

We stayed 3 nights in mid October and loved the hotel. We had balcony room on the 4th floor (#406) facing the Basilica (actually the spires of the Basilica)... the room was comfortable and in excellent condition. Zaragoza is a wonderful city and we were within walking distance of many restaurants and major attractions. We would highly recommend this hotel... More
