I spent two nights at the Catalonia El Pilar Hotel and I found it to be a great location to sightsee Zaragoza and a very comfortable place to relax between outings. The staff of the hotel are very friendly and they try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. My room was larger than I have come to expect... More

We enjoyed staying here for our recent trip. It's a bit of a distance from the bus and train station, but there is a bus you can catch that takes you reasonably close to the hotel and then it's about a 10 minute walk. The hotel overlooks a small square, which is very pleasant, although it was occupied by some... More

We stayed at this hotel only one night but would not hesitate to go back if we ever visit Zaragoza again. This hotel is in a historical building, close to all the places of interest. Although it was across from one of the main plazas, and our room faced the square, we did not hear any noise. When we checked... More

The best hotel value so far in 2 weeks. Very comfortable, good location in old town. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Parking tip! GPS was actually accurate, but I hesitated going into what appeared to be, and is, a plaza! But go ahead, it is for driving. Make sure you are in far right lane. You go around the hotel once,...

We've just spent 2 nights in this lovely hotel, perfectly located within the beautiful old town of Zaragoza. Like other reviewers, we enjoyed our stay - our room on the third floor was modern, clean, well-designed, spacious, air-conditioned, big bathroom, quiet and very comfortable. The room also had a minifridge and safe. The balcony was nice too, allowing for fresh... More

We were so pleased to use this hotel as a base for exploring the centre of the historic town. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and quietly situated, the staff were helpful and friendly and everything we wanted to visit was in easy walking distance. These included the Basilica and the Zaragoza, Ibercaja and Gargallo museums. There was a huge... More

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
