For what you pay it does the job. Cheap and cheerful! Location is great very central - only problem is finding it by car is a nightmare as sat navs can't locate it easily and the hotel's direction are badly translated to English! It's typical old fashioned 1960s decor, so not much aesthetically but main thing is that the shower... More

Found the hotel due to travel guide recommendation but had terrible experience. The air-con in not only my room but apparently also all public areas of the hotel was non-functional. The room itself was infected with ants, I still had ants in my clothes the next day. Pointing these things out to the staff lead nowhere. They claimed the ants... More

Ths hotel has it all. Central location, on-site parking, large, quiet rooms, reliable in-room wifi, clean, good bathroom with plenty of hot water and an exceptionally good breakfast. Very competitvely priced. We booked for one night and liked both the hotel, the excellent service at reception and the city so much that we stayed for two. In terms of the... More

The location is great with easy walking access to the key sites in central Zaragoza. A few minutes walk and you are at the Basilica! The hotel itself is simple but sufficient. Wifi works well. Unfortunately they turn off the air conditioning (AC) for several hours in the heat of each day. Breakfast is simple; we found buying and bringing... More

Reserved a double room for 1night only. Must say that has a great location and stuff are very friendly. Clean wise was ok. The only down fall was that the room stunk of cigarette. Can't expect much from a 2star hotel but if we go back to Zaragoza we would reserve again at Rio Arga. Thank you

We happened to read about hotel Rio Arga in one of our guides and booked it just as we arrived in this lovely little city. The location and price is excellent - and we were even provided with a Carpark in the hotel which is often a real challenge in European cities. What we paid reminded me of when it... More

This Hotel is becoming my favorite in Zaragoza, for several reasons ; 1- Location is simply in the heart of the action with all types of restaurants and cafes around. 2- It's always Clean. 3- Always quite enough for me to do anything like sleep, work... etc 4- lovely Graffiti outside the window gives it an edge for me.

This hotel is a great value for the money, it is clean and a great location. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning and the staff was super friendly. Thanks for getting us an additional night when we thought you were full.

Booked this hotel because of the great location - right in the center of Old Town. Had a terrible time finding it. Finally parked in a lot close to it and walked to the hotel. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful, also spoke English, and gave us a map with excellent instructions. Nice rooms - nothing luxurious - but... More
