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

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

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
