“Nice hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

But probably not a 5-star. The room was nice, the staff was helpful and the valet parking was great. The front desk was extremely helpful in pointing us to local sites.
But the restaurant service was terrible! The restaurant is reputed to have an extensive cellar stocked with many local/Spanish wines, liquors and liqueurs. After dinner, my husband asked to see a list. They don't have one was the the response, if you know what you want we'll get it for you. The waiter said he was too busy to spend any time with recommendations. It would have been fun to try something we couldn't get in the states. A two star hostel in the Pyrenees went out of their way to help us sample. Shameful that such a highly rated restaurant would have "attitude".

I visited this hotel with my husband for few days last month. Our experience was out of this world. I have no words to describe my stay at this place. This hotel really exceeded our expectations and we were delighted to book this place. Form beginning till end we were treated like royalty. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed one night on our way to Monasterio de Piedra. We got upgraded when we got a twin room when we had requested a double.Had all what you would expect for the standard of this hotel and the price. Staff pleasant and we would recommend.

I am not questioning how people who stayed here rated this 5 star. I stayed in this hotel for about 5 days and then another 6 days on a business trip from US. Not a 5 star Hotel for sure. Nobody even in the front door to help u with parking or luggage, but only in reception. Very good location - close to all good bar, clubs and supermarket. There is public parking right is front of hotel which is good for long term. Breakfast is at best OK. Rooms don't look like its been refurbished for the last 10 years. Carpets looks really bad really bad. Beds are small again, King Beds means Queen in Europe as its small. Service is good and staff do understand English. NOTE: In winter this hotel has no A/C at all - so its really hot and you have to open the windows which also cant be done easily
So 4 Star Hotel at best compared to any hotel in US or in Europe.

This is a great property in Zaragosa. The rooms were large and spacious and had all the basics for a great stay. The staff were extremely friendly. The hotel was also very clean and the service was very efficient. If there were any negatives it was that the restaurant was closed (had good ratings) and that the bar service staff was short due to the easter weekend. Since it was one of the better hotels in the city we were also lucky enough to have the Real Madrid team staying there which was a huge surprise for my sons who are die hard fans.

Not a bad location, but not exactly center city. Room was good, a little tired but would stay here again. The front desk people were very nice and made our stay extra nice. Nice bar area too and we had a glass of wine before dinner. The room was fine, nothing really special but did the trick.
