Clean tidy good rooms nice breakfast. Sets you up for a days travelling. Oh and its 10 mis by car from the ferry port. Parking is a bit restricted we always book the garage when we book. Very steep entry / exit but good car park.

We were really excited about staying at this hotel at the end of a trip around northern Spain, however when we arrived our room had a funny smell. Initially I thought it was insect repellent and we thought it would resolve with airing the room. We however later discovered that the stench was in fact mould and in quite a... More

The hotel needs refurbishment to be brought up to standards but it is clean, spacious and good service. It is a bit far from bars at night but it is 5 minutes and 5 euros taxi away. It is just outside the football stadium and close to the sardinero beach.The decor at the bar is outdate to a more modern... More

I went with a little apprehension after reading the reviews. We were so happy we chose this hotel as everything about it was great! Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, the waiter in the downstairs bar was fantastic his name was Augustine, after the first night he had the glasses and Rioja waiting for my husband and cousin before...

I fully agree with the last comment. This place is called a Palace? What a joke! Place needs s revamp quick, service is mediocre, breakfast? The worst we have encountered!, it is not properly located, far away from most tourist sites. Place is clean, rooms are good size, but this hotel doesn't deserve more than one star.

Let's keep to the basics based on a two night stay in mid May, 2113: Rooms: Large with a surprisingly cramped bathroom. No English TV channels. Clean tile floors ( no carpet). No refills for shampoo or soap. Hallways: Dark, stained and worn carpeting. AC: they don't turn the AC on until June; do not know when they turn on... More

Very large comfortable rooms. Easily reached by bus from the centre of town - bus number 1 which takes the scenic route to the hotel. Otherwise you can take bus C1/6 (quick route) from outside the town hall to the hotel. The gym facilities are good and are located just behind the hotel. There is a bar (just behind the... More

We had trouble finding it as we only had a sat nav and it didn't show on it. Eventually a kind policeman gave a map and directions. From the outside the hotel looked a bit grim, but inside it was delightful. The receptionist was friendly and the room was much more than expected. In fact it was a suite. It... More
