No car parking included, wifi not included or breakfast. Fitness center is a joke. This looks cheap, but is not when nothing is included. rooms are clean and nice, and it's close to many good restaurants

Right on the Riva right across from the ferry terminal and very central. Our room (304) was large with a small balcony looking out to the water. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was excellent (but be warned it is NOT included and is 14.50 euros). Also to note is that the 4th floor is attics so not for... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for work. Overall it was a nice hotel; very clean, spacious and comfortable rooms, excellent location. But there were a couple of things missing considering it is a 4 star hotel: - But the walls are quite thin and I woke up a couple of times during the night with the noise... More

Excellent Ria front location, taxi stop next to hotel, this is a 3 Star Superior product, no more (although the hotel has an official 4 star rating), which is misleading. NO WIFI IN GUESTROOMS! Again the website is misleading and says that there is Wifi, there is WIFI in the hotel lobby at no charge, in the guestrooms you have... More

I had a lovely room on the port side of building with a balcony. Overall the room (310) was spacious and very clean, it contained a big bed and very convenient closet space. The only downside of the room is that its quite noisy. You can really hear other people speaking in the adjacent rooms. Other than that, friendly staff... More

I needed a hotel in Vigo for 10 days. I was there on business, expected to be quite busy, had a business colleague who would need a second, acceptable room. I spent one night here, then left. First of all, the room was a small as a prison cell. As a Marriott member I complained about the room size and... More

The title of my review says it all. I was there on business and spent a lot of time in the hotel attending meetings etc. The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly and facilities excellent. I would have no hesitation staying in this hotel again either for business or pleasure.

I stayed here for 4 days in May, just prior to starting a walk from Tui to Santiago de Compostela. The location was perfect for visiting the harbour precinct with its inexpensive, fast eateries; as well as being next to the old city. Vigo is hilly, but there are good sightseeing walks to be done close by. Sometimes there are... More

Lovely hotel - with almost a boutique atmosphere -checkin was friendly and efficient. Room was simply furnished in a modern style with its own little balcony overlooking the sea front. Never stayed in a hotel with a free minbar with soft drinks. Bathroom was sleek with plenty of tioletries and an uber-chique glass washbasin. Location was suberb and we changed... More

The location is unbeatable! The next day we were going to the islands so it was great to be a 2 minute walk to the harbour. The room was very nice with wooden floors which is always a nice surprise to the dreaded typical hotel carpets. Our room had a nice view to the harbour. Not sure if this was... More
