Stayed here for a few nights in Oct 2014. Location was good situated 15 mins walk from the lovely old town. Rooms and facilities were fine, parking expensive at €18 per day and overall the hotel was expensive compared to other parts of northern Spain. The best aspect was the friendly staff and the barman who kept smiling into the... More

Stayed here for two nights in September 2014 - hotel is very ideally located next to the bus station which made it very easy to find. The room was clean and comfortable. Located about 15 min walk to the main bit of down, but you walk down quite a nice river route. Would recommend for a short weekend break.

Hotel is only a 10/15 minute walk from the main centre and beach areas and is located next to the bus station. It's a pleasant walk, either along the river or along tree lined paths by local shops/cafes. The hotel itself was quiet, clean and comfortable (the only noise we heard was early in the morning from the buses but... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during our Camino. Nice room, very stylish, comfortable bed. Excellent service from the front desk and concierge. While not close to the old town, it is a short cab ride/long walk. Breakfast was fine, good selection but a bit pricey.

The hotel is located a few km. outside the city center, Old Town.However, there are a lot of both shops and restaurants nearby.Good room standard, as well as the bed comfort. Friendly staff. Free wy-fi, but not for email ! Good standard, slightly far from downtown.

Modern business style hotel. Furnishings were new, comfortable. Large closet with separate section with shelves. Large bathroom with tub and hand shower unit. Our view over the next door bus terminal was not attractive, but the noise did not bother us so long as the window was closed. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was not fine dining, but adequate. The...

Location ideal for us as we needed to walk after our lavish and tasty breakfast every morning. Such a selection of food for breakfast...Food in restaurant delicious and great value. Lovely friendly... More
