The hotel is in a good location for exploring the many tapas bars and restaurant and well as the near by cathedral. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was not worth the money. We skipped it our second morning. Our GPS got us close by but we had to walk to find the hotel and then get further directions on... More

Hotel is well located for visitors - cathedral is nearby, as are the multitude of tapas bars and restaurants. Hotel itself has pleasant, helpful reception staff and rooms are clean. Breakfast, as other reviewers have indicated, was pretty dire. Irritating too that customers did not have control of their room's air con - it turns off in the early hours... More

Do not trust your GPS to get you to HRA but finding this delightful spot literally in the heart of the historic district is well worth the effort. Close to everything one could want by way of walking to shopping, restaurants, museums, and sites worth enjoying. The staff are on site 24 hours and are very friendly and willing to... More

Location is unbeatable. In a very quite neighborhood, 5 minutes away from the centre and the Pilar cathedral. Plenty of cafe's and restaurants around.Very reasonably priced. The room was spacious and had no issues at all. Extremely helpful staff. Highly recommended and I would definitely stay there again when I'm back in Zaragoza.

I was recently in Zaragoza for the show. The hotel was booked from my spanish colleague, was a good choice. Located in the city center, near walkway area and cathedral, is a good position also for turism and for dinner without car. The transit time to the trade show is about 15/20 min by car. Is not a luxury hotel,... More

We usually stay outside Zaragosa en route to or from the ferry ports, but decided to try this hotel as the reviews were acceptable for one night, and the location provided us with more dining options. We used Google Earths directions instead of the hotels web site to drive to the hotel and they were easy to follow so I... More

This hotel is no frills but for the price and location you cannot complain, plus the hotel staff was great so if your looking for something simple i definitely recommend it. Tip, a taxi from the train station to the hotel shouldnt cost more than 10 euro.

This hotel was exactly as I expected - nothing special but nice and clean with a great location. We chose it mainly for having parking available for a cheap rate. The breakfast was dire so don't get too excited that it's included in the room rate, but the staff were friendly, the rooms reasonably big and airy - the air... More

We stayed for one night in June and started with a really friendly and helpful receptioist. Our room was pleasant and included a nice bathroom with bath and bidet (We have had much worse rooms in far more expensive hotels) We paid to park the car in their secure underground car park and they kindly let us leave it there...

Lovely foyer, but rooms are nothing like it. They are not very clean feeling and the decor is poor. It is fine if you are just looking for bed in which to sleep. Good location - close to the cathedral. Breakfast is inedible.
