I spent a whole week here due to a business trip to Vigo and for a 2 star hotel it was amazing. For a start forget the two star hotel, with the amazing hospitality it feels like your in a 4/5* hotel, I did anyway. The owners are very kind and very helpful as well as this the room I... More

Unexpected high quality from a two star hotel Our room was small, but very well arranged -- plenty of electric outlets, for example. The renovation of this hotel by the family owners and operators was done with a great deal of thought. Everything is up to date and tasteful.The owners were wonderful and helped in every way they could. The... More

Where to begin? Everything was just perfect about this charming hotel. The decor was astounding, a real piece of art, beautifully crafted. They managed to modernize a very old house while respecting the original look-n-feel. Our room was not very big, but cosy, and it came with a large terrace with a beautiful view on Old Vigo. But the best... More

Hotel Puerta Gamboa is a small (about 10 rooms) beautifully renovated stone building in the old part of Vigo. It is very central to cafes and restaurants, and to the waterfront areas. The rooms are comfortable and fitted out to a high standard. The owners were very helpful and friendly and prepared us a meal after we arrived late from... More

Although it is a bit pricey for this level of hotel in a town like Vigo, I must say that the rooms were lovely and the staff very friendly. The location is also good, even if the parking is slightly difficult to access. Recommended

Family of 5 staying in 3 rooms - lovely hotel with fantastic service. Nothing is too much trouble. Lovely to stay in a smaller hotel where standards are very high. Breakfast is very flexible and caters for all tastes/expectations.

The recently-renovated Hotel Puerta Gamboa puts many 5-star hotels to shame. On entering the hotel, the combination of granite, wood, and glass oozes class. The rooms, similarly appointed and which come with an original balcony, are spotless. The location couldn't be better - a stone's throw from the bars and eateries of the Casco Vello (Old Town) and very close... More

You are welcomed immediately upon arrival and we were given a choice of rooms which was refreshing. We had four days in Vigo and the location was perfect for exploring the city. You are right in the old town with its fantastic bars and eateries. Also a short walk to the ferry jetty for trips to the islands or Cangas.... More

Very friendly welcome from Fernando, nothing was too much trouble for him. He helped us move our car to the nearby cheaper underground parking, and gave us some great recommendations for an evening meal. The room was elegant, clean and spacious. We were delighted with our stay, and the genuine friendliness.

I stay in serviced accommodation over 240 nights year and what I look for most, is service and this hotel was not lacking in any way on this account! Fernando took such great care of us and when he wasn't fussing over us, his father was. We loved the city and especially coming back to the hotel in the evening.... More
