stayed here for four nights early October. Walked in approx 12 minutes from airport bus terminus with directions provided by hotel - would not relish bringing a car even with sat nav and garage very tight. Our room directly above reception was spacious and clean - comfortable beds powerful over bath shower that inevitably washed the floor too. TV has... More

Nice clean hotel. Pretty close to a lot of restaurants and bars. Unfortunately we were a little late so everything was closing. Great hotel if you're traveling though Zaragoza. Breakfast was a little skimpy and we had to ask someone from the front desk to refill the food and drinks.

Very reasonably priced hotel with a location that couldn't be better. If you are looking for grandeur, then this isn't the place for you. But if you want somewhere clean and comfortable, located right in the centre of the old town, at a very affordable price then this will do the job. Staff spoke very good English and were very...

The best of this hotel is the location in the city centre. Not easy to reach by car, but they have a private parking that help. The hotel have everything needed to be confortable even if a bit old. Their price/quality level is good Breakfast sufficient

For what you pay it does the job. Cheap and cheerful! Location is great very central - only problem is finding it by car is a nightmare as sat navs can't locate it easily and the hotel's direction are badly translated to English! It's typical old fashioned 1960s decor, so not much aesthetically but main thing is that the shower... More

Found the hotel due to travel guide recommendation but had terrible experience. The air-con in not only my room but apparently also all public areas of the hotel was non-functional. The room itself was infected with ants, I still had ants in my clothes the next day. Pointing these things out to the staff lead nowhere. They claimed the ants... More

Very competitvely priced. We booked for one night and liked both the hotel, the excellent service at reception and the city so much that we stayed for two. In terms of the... More

The location is great with easy walking access to the key sites in central Zaragoza. A few minutes walk and you are at the Basilica! The hotel itself is simple but sufficient. Wifi works well. Unfortunately they turn off the air conditioning (AC) for several hours in the heat of each day. Breakfast is simple; we found buying and bringing... More

Reserved a double room for 1night only. Must say that has a great location and stuff are very friendly. Clean wise was ok. The only down fall was that the room stunk of cigarette. Can't expect much from a 2star hotel but if we go back to Zaragoza we would reserve again at Rio Arga. Thank you
