“Don't stay in Poio”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The hotel is OK. the room was large but had a horrid smell - this may have been due to the motorway which was just below the window, Nice views across the river (and motorway).
Very noisy at the back (motorway) and not much better at the front (busy road) and no air conditioning (rare in Galicia).

Avoid Poio if you can the traffic is horrendous

Good points - there's a shopping centre very close by. You can literally get into Pontevedra in 5 minutes on foot across the bridge, and it's a nice way to approach. The centre takes another 5-10 minutes to reach though.

Pontevedra was dead in the afternoon but came alive in the evening, especially in the newer part of the centre. Look out for the ice cream shop where you can select it yourself and pay by weight.

First, the location: it is indeed in walking distance to the centre of Pontevedra.
The price seems to be inline with the rest of the hotels in Pontevedra of the same category, with the difference that breakfast is included. Breakfast is, however, pretty basic (you can pick one item out of four categories, making it a four-item breakie).
The pictures of the room were quite accurate, it had a big window, bed was comfortable, bathroom ok.
The slippers and the robe mentioned by the other commentator were a good feature.
There were signs in the room that the room would be checked upon check-out to deter you from taking them or any of the adornments of the room (they seem to have had bad experiences with guests).
The overall feeling is that it's just ok, nothing remarkable, but it serves the purpose if you want to stay a day or two around the area.
