Stayed here on day 3 of our Camino trip and this hotel is more than adequate. Rather tired furniture in bedroom but lovely bath- just what you need after 6 hours walking. Staff were nice and Smiley. Breakfast good but served on lower ground floor. Evening meal good too.

Stayed a night there while walking the Camino. Close by the Templar Castle...only 50 meters away. There is a cafeteria and restaurant on the first floor. It was a clean room and bathroom. I slept well and enjoyed a chocolate croissant along with and orange juice the next morning. Located closed to the Templar Castle makes it easier to get... More

Hotel El Castillo in my opinion has earned a five star vote from me. The staff was extremely helpful and when they discovered we were pilgrims on the Camino they provided us with excellent accommodation's. The room was spacious with three beds. Looking out of the window we were right across the street from the Knight Templars Castle. What a... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our Camino. Located near the Castle, below Plaza Major, and very near the Camino route. The room was large but the beds were very hard. We had trouble sleeping unfortunately. Wifi was also unreliable & kept dropping out.

We had a one night stay here on our Camino. The hotel is located right along the route so it was easy to find. It is very close to the castle though it was not open during our stay. We had a triple room with enough space for another bed and lots of plugs. A light breakfast is included in... More

The hotel is very well located, near the castle, old town and almost in the way of Saint James. The staff were friendly and attentive. The room was cleaned but there was a smell of cigarettes in the air. The size of it is ok and the furniture are simple but seams almost new. My big complain about the hotel... More

Although the hotel was on quite a busy road the double glazing worked well at keeping the road noise down, the room was clean and comfortable and had air conditioning. The bathroom was spacious and had a bath with a shower over it. The castle was only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel and it had commanding views... More
