“Rooms, location and service all 5 stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Definitely a hidden gem, since it's a bit hard to find and not much from the outside. But, what a nice surprise once you enter. The rooms are all completely renovated, spacious and comfortable. And the best part is the service. Ferndando and his father give 150% to make sure all is perfect. They are so nice and helpful and can't do enough for you. The room on the top floor with the terrace is just beautiful. One thing to note is some of the rooms have windows above a bar, and the street noise can be loud, but that's not the hotel's fault. Vigo is okay for a large city and the old city is nice to walk around, but Baiona is a short drive away and truly a beautiful beach town. We were here for close access to the airport, which takes about 20 minutes to get to. We also loved Tortillita Restaurant around the corner.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter

Hello All,
I need to say a couple of words for this beautiful hotel and the city.
Hotel Puerto Gamboa is in the middle of the old town. (Best location) The room has furnished with country style. (So Cute)
Fernando wellcomes you with his warm smile. If you wish he can make suggestions for the visitors attraction in Vigo.. He and his lovely family make sure that you are comfortable during your stay. They are very friendly. Meet with the father. He is also very nice man; listening Kiss Fm at his car singing softly with you. Breakfast is rich. You can grap a red juicy plum for the road :) At night in the high season, the street will be noisy. Don’t mind. That means; the streets are alive.

You need to go in Lany’s and his sister bar next to Hotel Puerto. Lany does not speak English at all but he will try to help you with his mini mini spanish-english dictionary, warm green oils and peanuts.. When you pleased, give him a 20cent. He will ring the bell.
Drink smtgh in the heart of the Plaza de la Constitución and at night go and listen blues brothers (live)at bar ferry. You can also bump into Lany there.

Room Tip: You can just write your wishes to Hotel Puerto Gamboa during your booking. They will help.

Great staying at Hotel Puerta Gamboa. Muchissima gracias Fernando, tu papa Jose Manuel y tu mama por la hospitalidad. A real gem, 5 Star Hotel, perfectly located in old Vigo. The food and the wines are amazing. Will remember forever the fish soup made on demand ;) Lovely and spacious rooms, especially the one with the terrasse. Friendly and professional services. We feel being in the family. We already want to come back. Ciao !

We stayed one night in this hotel and were very impressed with the hotel and the helpful, friendly staff. The hotel is a small family run hotel, tastefully renovated and in a great location for walking around this charming city. We were made to feel very welcome and appreciated the restaurant and sightseeing advice.

I had made a booking elsewhere in Vigo but when I realised, checking before I travelled, how far the hotel was from where i needed to be, I happened upon this gem. I can honestly say I have never had better, more friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff even asked where I had parked my car and then went and re-parked it elsewhere cheaper for me. As I was working the following day, I decided to eat at the hotel. Was I glad I did. The meal was stunning - local fresh clams and fish and probably the best tomatoes (in a salad) I've ever had. The wine, too, was very good. All was very reasonably priced.
The room was on small side, but the bed extremely comfortable and the decor and finish just delightful. I have read reviews elsewhere that mention the noise from the street. This did not bother me at all - in fact the little bar two doors up that is the source of the jollities is an experience in itself.
I loved staying here and cannot praise the owners highly enough, for their hospitality, helpfulness and the wonderful meals. I would recommend the hotel and will definitely be returning!
