Apartments clean, large and very well located. Big window looking almost directly at the basilica. Staff at the Sauce hotel very helpful and welcoming. Parking is tight and needs a smallish car - and a confident driver ! We had breakfast at the Sauce in the morning - very good.

My family and me spend a tree days in Zaragoza traveling around Spain.
The appartments are so cute and are in the most turistic area.


There is a coin laundry very close (Lavandería del Barrio in Calle Coso 131). We did the laundry in 1 hour, wash and dry, for only 6,50 €. Andres, the owner is a nice guy and speak english and italian.

Zaragoza is a very beautiful city, I recommend you visit the 2 cathedrals, Aljafería Castel and make a walk from Old City until Expo Zaragoza Area from the path river.

Let's face it: things don't always go to plan. If our experience of how the staff handled our stay when not everything was going right is any indication, there is little that will ever get in the way of you having a fantastic stay.

So, what didn't quite go right for us? Well, we had booked a 2 bedroom apartment and upon arrival we were told that our room had a bathroom / plumbing problem and would not be available. Many apologies. We were then told we could instead have two adjoining apartments: one with kitchen etc but 1 bedroom, and the other room with just bedroom. This proved to be an excellent compromise. Further, when we discovered that we were missing a toaster, this was no problem: a completely new one was delivered within an hour. That is service.

Beyond this we had a great stay and I can highly recommend the apartments. In particular:
* The location is fantastic – right in the heart of things and a few blocks from supermarket (remember they are closed Sundays!). It is lovely to listen to the church bells in the morning and evening.
* The fit out is high quality, it is nice to have the room serviced daily, and has the sort of kitchen/laundry stuff you would need.
* I agree with many others that it is not the quietest place – mainly because of the restaurants below. Not a big issue, but be aware.
* The staff can help with maps, directions, bag storage on check out etc. Nothing was too much trouble.
* It is a 10-15 Euro taxi ride to/from the Renfe train station.

The wife and I spent 3 nights here last week. Can not say enough good things about this place, from the location, to the apartment itself, to the staff. The location looks out over the Plaza, and is in the middle of most of Zaragoza's attractions. The apartment was roomy, clean, secure, and relatively quiet (the outside noise is muffled well, but only so much you can do about the early morning trash trucks and the late night revelers). The bed was comfortable, the washer/dryer came in handy, the fridge was a definite plus, the furniture was comfortable, and the view was spectacular, especially at night. The staff was very attentive, without being intrusive-every question was answered and every need met in an expeditious manner. The tour with Lorenzo was excellent-he showed us parts of the old town that we surely would not have found on our own (part of Roman wall is in basement of store, for example) and thoroughly explained the history and layout of the town as we walked the old wall line. Isabel was the shining jewel of our trip to Spain. She took us to the Goya museum on her own time, educating us about his life while we toured his work. After, she took us down El Tubo for the best tapas we had in Spain, then took us to a restaurant where we enjoyed a fine meal. If everything else about the property was just okay, she alone would have earned them an excellent review. The breakfast in the hotel was also excellent, and the ladies that worked it were fun. Overall best stay of any property I have been in, and all that at an outstanding rate. If there was a rating above excellent, would give it.

Room Tip: We liked our apartment on 4th floor for the view and being a little further away from the crowd nois...

Dear guests from Georgia,
We feel very fortunate to have the best guests in the whole world. :-) This way it is always fun to work and we enjoy very much getting to know friendly , open minded and grateful people from all different countries. We could write a book with colorful anecdotes and experiences we live in our hotel with our guests.:-) So thank you Eric and Nicole for the time we spent together discovering Goya and then going tapas hunting :-) Hope you have good memories of your trip around Aragón that you can tell to your family and friends in the USA.
It was a pleasure to have such excellent company!! THANK YOU!!
Warm regards,
Isabel

We spent 3 nights here last week. Loved having a washer dryer to do some laundry. Didn't use the dryer as things dried fine on hangers. The location is perfect and the apartment is lovely. Light, spacious and comfortable and serviced daily. Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful, walking us to both the carpark and the apartment. Its a short 100m walk to the apartment and the same to the carpark. Hire the smallest car you can, it's a typical European carpark i.e. tight turns and narrow parks but taken slowly it's fine. It can be a little noisy at night outside either as people walk through the alleyway or the square but the view of the basilica and the location more than makes up for it. We would happily stay at this apartment another time. Gracias.

I start from the premise that no hotel is perfect - not even home is perfect. (The Ritz in Madrid comes closest!)
My son and I stayed in one of these apartments for 2 nights and enjoyed the space and privacy of separate bedrooms. I was pleasantly surprised to come "home" after the first day of sightseeing to find the rooms all cleaned and made up! Although we did not use the kitchen or the clothes washer, others would find these features very useful. The bathroom was clean and perfectly adequate, although I would have preferred a bathtub and/or a somewhat larger, sturdier shower stall.
The location next to the square and with a view of the cathedral was very special. At night and early morning I thought(my son disagreed!) there was quite a bit of noise, but if we had closed the windows and turned on the a/c the noise would hardly have been noticeable.
As others have said, the staff of the Hotel Sauce (where one checks in and eats breakfast) is exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Our wi-fi did not work the first night and the staff got on it so it was up and running soon enough...I would stay there again, high praise from me...

Dear guest from the US,
We agree that Ritz in Madrid may come to perfection :-) ¡But in the Ritz you cannot see Basilica del Pilar from the window! :-) We really enjoy reading the opinions of our guests. They sound and they are real, and very constructive and supportive. Thank you for the time you spent writing your brilliant review about your experience in our apartments. I found a quote on the internet from you compatriot Michael J. Fox that I liked very much: " “I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.”
Best regards from the Sabinas and Sauce team,
Isabel

It is essential to know that the published address is in a no-go area for cars and that your stay really starts at the Hotel Sauce (there is no indication of this on the actual flats). Knowing that would have saved us a couple of hours of driving round the old town of Zaragoza and a stay in a public car park. Once you get there it is fine and the location is very good.
The staff are helpful enough once you can contact them but hotel's car park is a nightmare but the breakfast exceeded expectations
