“Very good hotel in a great location”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

The hotel was very nice. Very good location at Calle de la Manifestacion. Near the Cathedral and the Basilica, restaurants and also the shopping area. The room had a good size, was nice and clean. The breakfast was also very good. The staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel delivers value for money

A slight challenge to find but satnav served us well. Fabulous location on the edge of the old city and also on the doorstep of the main shopping area. Rooms super in terms of minimal noise and light so a great night's sleep. Staff helpful, breakfast gave a great start for a long journey.

An impressive old building (with a modern interior, rooms, lifts, etc), helpful English-speaking staff, in an excellent position only about a hundred and fity yards from the cathedral, the basilica, etc, and which also serves a great breakfast. Couldn't be better.

Great location, great service and the room was brilliant. When we come back to Zaragoza we will definitely stay here again.
Had a large room with views over the square. There is no parking, but I left my motorbike parked outside on the square with no issues or concerns. They do have an arrangement with a place round the corner that has underground parking if you need it though.
In summary; great hotel in a great location.

Nice room, stylish hotel... in a convenient location close to the main tourist attractions and a short walk to the main bar/ restaurant area. The breakfast was also pretty impressive, even if the hot food items were not that hot...

We have toured France and Spain for the past month staying somewhere different almost every night.
I have to say this hotel has been the best hotel experience thus far.
Found the hotel relatively easily with the assistance of Barry our Aussie mate - the GPS
Reception on arrival was very friendly and genuine. So refreshing. The gentleman showed us where to find the parking bay, and the most interesting sights in Zaragoza. He even helped us ignorant Aussies with some Spanish terms.
We booked a suite and it was excellent. Spacious and clean with a beautiful atmosphere. Mini bar was well stocked. Bathroom was large with robes and slippers. I enjoyed a spa bath which was lovely after all the walking!
Bed was comfy and HUGE
There were no views from the window but the lever windows on the ceiling allowed sunlight through and if you poked your head up and through there was a great view of the basilica. Everything was close, two minute walking distance for the major attractions. Aircon worked.
Loved this place. Loved it. Best so far.
Thankyou for having us!

We loved this hotel.We did have trouble finding it and the hotel parking is around the corner in pilar square, they do have a special rate for the hotel. No tea and coffee facilities but the rooms do have a fridge. The bed was very comfortable but the best bit was the amazing balcony over the square. We had breakfast in the hotel which was fantastic value.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony over the square it was just lovely
