This hotel experience would have been much better if they had closed the place during the renovation of the foyer. The place was literally a building zone around the front entrance, reception and the dining area. It was either covered in plastic, strewn with building materials and paint, or just covered in plaster dust. This meant buffet breakfast was not... More

After reading some previous reviews I was expecting something pretty basic and a small room. However, we were delighted when we arrived and found a huge, modern room with a separate section for the children. It's a small, quiet hotel, only a few minutes walk from the old town and beside a large supermarket, some cafes, the train station and... More

I stayed for 1 night (room 205). After arriving early at 9:30am from Coruna by train, was checked in straight away to my room. The hotel is located conveniently a few minutes walk from the train station, and the cathedral also within walking distance. The double bed was comfortable - nice and firm (without being hard) which I like. The... More

Good Hotel, nice rooms, gold location. Staff was very friendly and helpful, as we needed their assistance with bikes, luggage, reservation confirmation and forgotten electronic device (they actually phoned our next hostel!).
