We stayed here cos we felt we couldn't walk another step into Arzua (doing the camino). It's an okay place, clean, water was hot, staff are friendly enough. But I would definitely try a casa rural or alternative accomodation in Arzua if possible. It's a bit more expensive than a casa rural, and since we had no choice but to eat in the restaurant, it doesn't give you a lot of options on food. Food was decent but very small-portions relative to price! It's a decent but soulless hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This inn or pension has been recently built or renovated to offer small but clean and adequate accommodations to rest after a day walking El Camino to Santiago. However I have to note the following situations: When we arrived there was only very cold water in the bathroom and due to being a regional holiday they could not find a plumber until late in the evening to solve the problem; given its location in the town´s entrance we stayed for dinner at the hotel were the combination of price and food/wine quality was clearly below the average we experienced during this trip; the front desk man also attends the restaurant so patience is needed for the check-out process in the morning. In summary, there may be comparable or better options for accommodation in the town that will provide the opportunity for a nicer dinning.
