“3 star hotel? Why?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

No such thing as a pilgrim special discount price like they advertised on camino. They charge €54 for one person room in April. 3 star hotel with no mini bar(they took out the fridge),dirty carpet,and not so hot water temp in the shower which any pilgrim would desire at the end of the wet and cold day. And most importantly no wifi in the room(at least the one I got). You gotta go out in the hallway or in the lobby. They shouldn't advertise wifi is available in the room.

one of the more upscale hotels along the camino--a bit isolated from other places, so not much choice in terms of places to eat,but food was quite good--a bit pricier than others along the way, but sometimes you gotta pamper yourself.

From our Camino walk we arrived tired and not looking our best, rucksacks on our backs and walking sticks in our hands. We walked into a pristine clean smart empty dining room, looking rather out of place. We were treated as any smart diner, with grace and charm, to a wonderful meal.

Rooms are large, well equipped (even a machine to press your pants). Nice bathroom with double basins.
Quiet place at 5 minutes from the airport.
The best part is the bar and the restaurant. The food is outstanding but still reasonably priced. Octopus and fish is something one must try.
