Clean, modern room with comfortable bed. Perhaps a bit on the small side but completely adequate. Situated close to the port and easily within walking distance of the parts of Vigo you want to see. Downside is that you need to pay extra for parking

Typically ACs are located on the outskirts of the city. This one is right in the heart of Vigo on the waterfront. The rooms a standard AC fair, TVs are pretty old. Both times I got rooms with a view of the port. They have very small balconies. As usual breakfast isnt free and there are no iron or ironing... More

I've just stayed one night at this hotel but it was amazing. Located near Vigo port. It has two public car parks. I've used one and I payed 23 euro for about 26 hours. I've payed 60 euro per room. The rooms are not very big but they have everything that is needed. I've enjoyed a lot this hotel.

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
