This little hotel isn't flashy but has everything you need for a comfortable weekend break, and at a great price too. On my recent stay I found the reception staff friendly and helpful - they gave us a map and restaurant recommendations when asked. The hotel is on a quiet street very close to the Plaza del Pilar and key... More

It was a wonderful stay and a very good choice but it was at least for us a bit difficult to find the place with the car because our GPS system didn't know that address. Now after knowing where it is and how to get there I would definitely book it again if I go to Zaragossa again.

My husband and I stayed here in September, and we were delighted with our choice. Unlike other reviewers on here, we had no difficulty whatsoever finding Rio Arga with our TomTom and we drove straight to the front door. Regarding the car park, you can request a space on the ground floor which was easy to enter and exit. For... More

Clean and worth the price we paid for but we were disappointed with the accommodation. We reserved a triple bed room. What was given to us was a matrimonial bed and an extra bed that was added. When we called the attention of the receptionist, she commented that it is the standard practice in Spain. Her excuse was belied by... More

Very dificult to find, even with a GPS, for it is situated in a non traffic street. They proposed a parking place for 15€ per day, but after testing the parking, not even for free I'd leave my car there, because I would certainly touch the walls exiting the parking for it is situated underground and very narrow. Poor breakfast

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
