Arrive at the grand entrance and you know you have chosen well. Very elegant and comfortable hotel with "old school" decor, a bit like a classic cruise ship. The reception staff are totally helpful, if you have the smallest problem they will fix it. Rooms are spacious, but being a city hotel don't expect stunning views. Bedroom was traditional with no hint of the unfortunate new trend for "open plan" or see-through bathrooms. Bed was very comfortable and the room to room soundproofing very good. Breakfast was "average" with a minimum selection and warm rather than hot choices. Very nice bar just above reception, again with very helpful and friendly staff. The position of the hotel could not be bettered for discovering all that this delightful city has to offer. Underground car park seemed a bit pricey but well worth it for convenience and security. Our hire car stayed put the entire stay. This is a city to explore slowly and on foot.
Biggest attraction is obviously the Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar. If you have a head for nights, take the scenic lift to the top of the tower. However, don't fail to see the Cathedral too. This is one of the most stunningly decorated I have seen. Check opening times, it doesn't stay open all day.
We will most certainly visit Zaragoza again and the Palafox is the only place for us when we do
