I stayed with my girlfriend in this hotel some time ago. The room was small, very small even in height (if you are more than 5 ft stay away from this place) and by that all the rooms in the hotel were cramped. Do yourself a favour there are better hotels in Vigo, and in Portugal. And also the street... More

Absolutely love this place! The owners could not have been more accommodating. They treated us like family and asked what meal we would like prepared for dinner. The food was wonderful and the rooms were authentic to Spain, exactly what I was hoping for! I would definitely stay here again, great location as well!

One of the the friendliest hotels I've stayed in. Attentive without being pushy, helpful without being overly "in your face", and a genuine feeling of being made welcome. The location is excellent, two minutes walk from the centre of the old town. The rooms are comfortable, and modern without being huge, but no complaints on this from me. If I... More

Can not say enough nice things about the hotel. The owners were very friendly and very attentive. They made us feel like we were one of their good friends coming to visit them. The rooms are also very nice, and have large bathrooms! Another thing I really appreciated was that I could eat breakfast really whenever I wanted, and they... More

I have been staying between 2011 and 2013 six times in the Puerta Gamboa. I have to say that I enjoyed every single stay. The hotel is family run and they treat you like a family member and will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. I would strongly suggest that you stay for dinner in the hotel... More

From the minute we walked into the hotel we were greeted with the best customer service of our three week tour of Spain. The room was large, beautifully furnished with a modern bathroom and immaculately clean. Everything previous reviewers have said about the owners being attentive, helpful and genuinely caring about you enjoying your stay are true. Staying at this... More

Perfect location in the city, easy walk to great restaurants and site seeing. The rooms are a bit small by US standards but the quality is excellent, but what truly sets this apart is the family that runs it. Father and Son are the face of the hotel, doing everything possible to ensure you're happy and going above and beyond... More

We had less than 24 hours in Vigo, and found this property on tripadvisor. The reviews are correct--the service, staff, quality and value is all excellent. The stone walls, iron work, cleanliness and charm of the building is apparent. The family owned nature of the property shows through, and the breakfast was very good, and the coffee they brewed was... More
