Maybe we just got a bad room but our experience here does not match the majority of the good reviews. We were assigned an interior room which was dark and danky. The window opened up to some sort duct work system and wall. No natural light at all, couldn't even tell if it was day or night outside. More importantly... More

Stayed here whilst walking the Camino. Fantastc location in centre of old town. Lovely architecture. Rooms are compact but comfortable. My only criticism is that the air conditioning in the rooms (friend had same issue with their room) is very poor which makes for a difficult sleep. Breakfast and dinner: delicious.

Good hotel, room very comfortable, air conditioned and double windows kept out noise. Superb location. We were booked in half board, when we went to order dinner we were told we could have €12 towards our food, set menu was €20 - we paid the extra, food was fantastic but thought it was a bit smart!!

The Hotel Ruas was one of the nicest hotels we stayed in on our Camino trip. The rooms are not large, but nicely furnished with a good bathroom. It was spotlessly clean and looked as if it had been refurbished recently. The shutters and double windows prevented it being noisy even though we faced on to a beautiful tree filled... More

I booked this Hotel on two occasions for groups walking the Camino Portuguese. The accommodation for the price is excellent. Plenty of space in the triple room I shared. A great location, close to the main plaza, with a very good Restaurant down below. An extremely pleasant and helpful staff made our stay all the more enjoyable.

My wife and I stayed here for one night when walking the Camino. The hotel is situated in a nice square in the centre of Pontevedra and just off the route of the Camino so ideally placed from that perspective. Our room wasn't the biggest but had everything we needed - including a bath to soak our weary feet! There... More

This is great little hotel right in the centre of Pontevedra. The rooms are a good size with all the little "freebies" you expect from a pricier hotel (razor, shaving cream, toothbrushes and toothpaste). My room also had a bath which was great for soaking away the day's walking aches. There is a lively cafe downstairs and a restaurant attached... More

Camino pilgrims, this is a great place to refresh and refuel. Clean and friendly. Great location in old town. Very nice clean rooms. You can even order room service. The breakfast of cheese and tomato is great for vegetarians. They aim to please and even laundered our clothes taking great care to put the matching socks back together.

Don't be fooled by the 1 star Hotel rating. This restaurant/hotel has all the amenities needed to enjoy a comfortable stay for anyone looking to discover Pontevedra. Nice clean rooms, with TV, air conditioning, and even shampoo, gel douche and toothbrush. Noise from the outside is controlled by two sets of windows, which you will have to open sequentially to...

The Hotel Ruas is convenient for Camino pilgrims. The rooms were clean and the staff tried to be helpful although not always available. The restaurant, however, was below par. The food was poorly prepared although the green salad was good and plentiful.
