We stayed here for the Knights Templar Festival. Perfect location for the castle and old town. Very clean and modern. Our room was cleaned everyday. Pleasant staff and good price. We will be back again next year. Only downside for us was the poor breakfast, although included in the room price, it could be much better.

Location wise this is fantastic, being a 2 minute stroll from the castle. Check is was efficient, although the check-in times advertised on the walls of reception differed from those advised when booking through booking.com (3pm according to the posters) There was a slight misunderstanding about motorbike parking, because there are 4 spaces within the secure car park, but if...

This is where we started our Camino. The location was wonderful and about a mile walk from the train station. The beds comfortable but dual twin. The staff friendly. The red hallway walls a bit odd. For some reason they would only serve dinner indoors so definitely walk into old town for dinner.

We had a short walk from Molinaseca, although we did come the longer way. After inspecting the castle we returned to the hotel to check in. we were rather early but the lovely lady on the front counter was not at all fazed and changed our room to a room that was ready. The room was perfect for our one... More

A nice, very clean and nicely appointed hotel right on the Camino. Rooms are quiet and clean. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. .2 even spoke English. Proximity to the Templar Castle is great and a block or so away is a nice square with several restaurants. Also there is a handy convenience store across the street. Free... More

Our backpack never arrived in Santiago, so after 3 days of waiting, we took a bus trip to Ponferrada to see the Templarios. After arriving by bus a local explained to us in Spanish that this was the nicest alburgue in town so we checked in! It is very close to the Templarios. We had a private bath & towels... More

Only stayed one night whilst walking the Camino de Santiago, nice hotel with nice clean rooms. Hotel has a dining room with a good set menu, also there is a snack bar adjacent where breakfast is served (not much choice pretty much a set menu). Friendly staff at the hotel the castle is almost directly opposite.

Stayed here on day 3 of our Camino trip and this hotel is more than adequate. Rather tired furniture in bedroom but lovely bath- just what you need after 6 hours walking. Staff were nice and Smiley. Breakfast good but served on lower ground floor. Evening meal good too.
