this hotel was booked by Camino Ways as part of our cycling tour of the Santiago de Compostela. I would rate it a three star hotel. Receptionist on arrival was friendly and the receptionist on our departure the next morning was super helpful. the hotel is nicely located next to one of the main attractions in Ponferrada, which is the...

We stayed here one night on a group pilgrimage tour. The rooms were spacious and clean, the beds comfy. Dinner was one of the best meals we've had in Spain, the breakfast was fine. The location is perfect - opposite the castle and old town area with its bars and cafes. Our room at the back was very quiet and... More

We stayed here overnight while walking the Camino de Santiago. Good location just a few minutes from the Templar Castle. A good room complete with a bath, which is great after a long walk. On the path , so easy to find.

An all around great stay. From the 3 minute check-in to the pristine room to the full midday meal at the restaurant. The hotel is near (around the corner from) the castle and the pedestrian mall of the old city. Gracious staff and spacious room. The hotel is relatively new and thus nice. I chose from the "Meal of the... More

Comfy all around. Friendly staff. Stayed two nights. No complaints. Didnt eat in the restaurant. No complaints. Love the tub. Noisy with windows open. Close to castle and center of town. Great people helped me find banking machine. Nice place and hotel. Free admission to museums and castle on Wednesdays.

Stayed at this hotel for one night during a biking holiday. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was basic, clean and quiet (room on the side of the hotel). Good, secure underground parking. Downside was the almost non-existent breakfast in the public bar. However, this is not a problem, as there are plenty of bars in the area that... More

Some pluses: the shower was great and it was close to the castle. The minuses: unwelcoming check-in process, hard beds, and generally unfriendly staff. As we were walking the Camino, we wanted to relax. As soon as we arrived, we were treated as unwelcome guests. Trying to sleep, we were assaulted by super hard beds. It was not a pleasant... More
