I stayed here for a 4 night business trip. I thought the hotel was lovely, in a great location close to shops and with sea views. The breakfast was amazing and the evening food in the restaurant was also very good, but my recommendation would be to eat out, there are so many great places to eat in Vigo, I... More

The building and location are very convenient to explore downtown and enjoy a luxurious good night sleep. We were unlucky with an event occurring in the peers in front of the hotel and the noise was intense until 1am, but the staff quickly appointed us inside rooms (much smaller and unappealing but silent). Would return.

Hotel is comfortable and spacious with some nice views. The breakfast was included in our rate and it was ok. It was more like a continental breakfast! Service was good. Overall we had an excellent value for what was included in the rate including parking that was a near by parking facility -not so easy to use especially if someone... More

An excellently sited hotel in the old heart of the city and overlooking the bay in. All the main sites of the city are a short walk away. With great hotels and bars nearby, we always ventured out for our meals. Rooms are not too big and come with good bathrooms. Hotel is ideally situated for pleasure cruises from the... More

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.
