As others have said, this hotel is very well located, and offers very large, luxurious rooms all recently renovated. For under 50 euros a night is was a little bit of true luxury without breaking the bank. The building is a rather lovely old one with loads of ironwork, but inside the hotel is very classy, clean and modern. And... More

Very good, clean, comfortable hotel. Staff were very good and helpful. Parking is in a nearby car park and 15 euro for 24 hours. Hotel is right in the centre of town and great for restaurants or shopping.

This hotel is very well situated, so close to the Basilica and perfect for exploring the Casco Antiguo. It's on a lovely little square. Our room was large, luxurious, quiet and clean. We had a well-appointed bathroom and a room safe. There is also a minibar if you like such things.The prices available during the summer were outstanding; this was... More

This hotel is in a terrific location within walking distance of the Basilica del Nuestra, one of Spain’s finest cathedrals. However it lacked onsite parking, which might be an issue for some. The rooms were great, breakfast was fine and service was good. It was also only a five-minute taxi ride from the Hertz rental car location.

A slight challenge to find but satnav served us well. Fabulous location on the edge of the old city and also on the doorstep of the main shopping area. Rooms super in terms of minimal noise and light so a great night's sleep. Staff helpful, breakfast gave a great start for a long journey.

An impressive old building (with a modern interior, rooms, lifts, etc), helpful English-speaking staff, in an excellent position only about a hundred and fity yards from the cathedral, the basilica, etc, and which also serves a great breakfast. Couldn't be better.

Great location, great service and the room was brilliant. When we come back to Zaragoza we will definitely stay here again. Had a large room with views over the square. There is no parking, but I left my motorbike parked outside on the square with no issues or concerns. They do have an arrangement with a place round the corner... More

Nice room, stylish hotel... in a convenient location close to the main tourist attractions and a short walk to the main bar/ restaurant area. The breakfast was also pretty impressive, even if the hot food items were not that hot...

We have toured France and Spain for the past month staying somewhere different almost every night. I have to say this hotel has been the best hotel experience thus far. Found the hotel relatively easily with the assistance of Barry our Aussie mate - the GPS Reception on arrival was very friendly and genuine. So refreshing. The gentleman showed us... More
