The hotel is in a multi-purpose development. Staff were pleasant, hotel room was spacious and comfortable, buffet breakfast was fine. The only things lacking was coffee/tea making facilities and an actual lounge area to sit in if one wants to get out of one's room. Shame. I am finding Spanish cities/towns very difficult to navigate as nothing is well signed.... More

Situated in a shopping mall and away from confusion. Next to Parks and public transport. The hotel is accessible by lift and the staff is pretty polite. It has all a tourist would want and you can park your car in their garage or use the Public Transport (Bus 11). Breakfast is neat and proper.

the hotel is part of a large shopping centre a walk from the centre of Santiago (not a short stroll). whilst we were there it was raining quite a bit (usual in Galicia) but there were several excellent cafes and restaurants in the shopping centre. The hotel had friendly staff and very helpful. You could have breakfast in the hotel... More

This hotel by its name gives the impression it is in centre of city, nothing could be further from the truth, it is a good 15 minute (average) walk from cathedral area of city. The name seems to derive from its location in the centre of an outlying shopping centre, the only plus factor location wise is that there is... More

Prices are low for a reason. If you expect a 4 star hotel do not go there it's a hotel furnished in the early 90s with a 14" tube TV on the wall and a long ONE pillow on the family bed!!! More like a hostel, with very helpful staff it does the job for the money.

If you have plenty time to spare at the end of a long journey, a small car, spare fuel in your tank, natural luck and a serious love of puzzles then this hotel is the ideal place for you. It is certainly not the kind of place that you would wish to visit for the first time, second time ok... More

In the middle of a shopping centre which is unique! Nice staff, good parking. The internet did not work in every room but they were happy to move you. My only problem was that the walls were quite thin and could hear every word said by your neighbours. Not a bad stay at all.

Misleadingly this hotel has two review categories. They are one and the same. We had a really good deal and opted for breakfast included. The fact that the hotel is located inside the shopping mall worked very well. After a days sight-seeing in the rain, then back to base to warm up and dry out, there was no need to... More

This is an ok hotel and I choose it as it was close to the bus station. I was in a room on a 5th floor with a window overlooking an the shopping mall as this hotel is part of the mall. It was cheap and would have been fine but there were two problems. The first was I must... More
