We stayed one night in this hotel and were very impressed with the hotel and the helpful, friendly staff. The hotel is a small family run hotel, tastefully renovated and in a great location for walking around this charming city. We were made to feel very welcome and appreciated the restaurant and sightseeing advice.

I had made a booking elsewhere in Vigo but when I realised, checking before I travelled, how far the hotel was from where i needed to be, I happened upon this gem. I can honestly say I have never had better, more friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff even asked where I had parked my car and... More

Stayed here for a week recently and really enjoyed the hotel and its very helpful staff. I was referred by a friend who stays there for business and, given that he usually stays at some pretty fancy places, I was surprised to discover it is a family-run hotel that is not fancy, just fantastic. The staff helped book tickets, took... More

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
