This hotel is in in a perfect location (near the cruise terminal) and waterfront district of Vigo. The AC hotel has maintained the 19th century style on the outside. It is too bad they could not bring this forward into the hotel itself. The hotel is attempting to meet the needs of the business clientele. What is missing is the... More

The AC Palacio Hotel is a classically elegant hotel with friendly and helpful staff (who speak perfect English for those of us with more limited Spanish skills). The stylish and modern rooms are very clean and comfortable. They were also very quiet which made for great sleep after a long flight. The lobby restaurant had a lovely breakfast which was... More

The hotel seems to be geared towards business people. The did not have parking for the type of car we had rented and we had to park pretty far. Also, the key to the door would not work and an attendant had to open the door every time we wanted to get in. The a/c was not working either and... More

The hotel is located on Vigo's waterfront, across the street from the Marina and close to the historical town.We enjoyed a great breakfast buffet. The hotel has no parking but offers a parking lot which is located about 2 blocks away from the hotel. We walk down the waterfront. The area has lots of restaurants, pizza parlors and bars. Rooms...

We stayed at two other AC branded hotels in the last 2 weeks... so we expected the same level of excellence. However, we were a little disappointed. First, we were put in a room on the top floor... which appears to be a renovated attic. In the renovated attic you get a tiny window and a slanted-low ceiling. This is... More

We stayed at the AC Palacio because we tend to stay in Marriott or their affiliated hotels whenever it seems like a decent option. The hotel was pleasant, well maintained and well located. The staff were helpful (or at least tried to be) as they did not seem to know much about restaurants or sites in the city.

Great hotel and great rates. NEW rooms and air conditioning makes this a very comfortable stay. Great beds and helpful staff. look no further for a hotel that has comfort and style plus is close to many restaurants including the port and the oyster bar street.

In my opinion this is the best option to stay in Vigo, regarding the value for money. Is not very expensive and it is a very good 4star hotel to stay in Vigo for weekend break or business travel. I went many times to Vigo for weekends short break or business and it was the best option. The location is... More

During my last stay at the AC Palacio de Vigo I was very nicely surprised that the staff remembered which room I had during last year's vacations and assigned the same one for my children and I. Room 311 is a corner room with two balconies, one of them giving out to Vigo port, great view! The hotel has a... More

Nice and clean and friendly although not all desk people spoke fluent English. No wireless in room - available only in lobby. Air conditioning sub optimal and leaving window open is a bad idea when carousing outside occurs nightly. 4 nights of interrupted sleep was a little annoying. Nice restaurant for breakfast and beautiful location on the water.
