Excellent place, well situated in the old town. Nice tasteful rooms. The owners where very friendly, helpful and took very good care of us. A very familiar place and don't miss the Don Quijote restaurant nearby, recommended by the hotel. If you ever go to Vigo , this is the place for you.

Hotel Puerta Gamboa is ideally located in Vigo, near the waterfront, historical area, & the main shopping avenue. The staff is fantastically helpful, cordial, friendly. The room is luxurious & comfortable. I had a memorable stay in this little known city & its beautiful hotel.

A small hotel in an old building renovated with great style, Puerta Gamboa is in an ideal location on the junction of the old town (bars and restaurants) the port (trips to the Islas Cies - unmissable!) and the new town (shops and restaurants). It's family-owned and run with excellent service and advice from the owners. Highly recommended.

A really pleasant place to stay. Light and delightfully comfortable bedrooms and very helpful and hospitable staff owners (e.g. we arrived late in the evening and within half an hour they made us a lovely meal with good regional wines). Personal, not anonymous, chatty but not at all intrusive.

The showers are powerful, something we all need in the morning. Breakfast was great with lots to choose from and plenty of it.... 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
