“Great location, nice room, place has character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a standard room, 20sqm, really really excellent. Parking right beside hotel. Hotel has real character and right beside the city walls. Mere seconds from tapas / restaurants.

Things to watch for .... Getting to hotel by car is "exciting" as you actually drive through a pedestrian arch and around a couple of narrow streets which is a little disconcerting when you haven't been there before. Wifi signal was weak in our room, you had to hover by the door. Also, seemed to be a mini red light district nearby. Felt very safe, just curious to see, and during the day not the evening. Nothing overt, just a few working girls knocking around.

Lovely little converted palace right by the city wall, and quite easy to get to if you know how. Unfortunately we slavishly followed the directions offered by Google Maps and ended up in a car park only a short distance away, but in a distinctly dodgy part of town peopled by shady looking characters. Once we were in the hotel’s own car-park, though, everything was fine – from the friendly welcome and the secure private car-park to the rooms in the hotel itself.
The decoration of the hotel is…what? Quirky? Eccentric? Eclectic? Certainly different, with bric-á-brac of various eras varying from old musical instruments to adverts and newspaper clippings, from religious statues to fashion mannequins and even 19th Century erotic photographs. The bedroom was comfortable and spacious and we had an excellent breakfast to fortify us for the drive to A Coruña.
Location was perfect: you can almost leap on to the ancient walls from the hotel and it is just a short walk from friendly squares joined by streets lined with little shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.

This is definitely one of my favourite hotels of all time. From the friendly welcome by the owner and his young son (great English by the way..), to the clever and tasteful blend of varied interior designs- antique, art deco, modern, rustic, eccentric; to the position, ...We had the BEST room with shuttered windows opening directly overlooking the wonderful town walls, old rooftops and the rural scenery beyond. The bathroom was to die for, you could host a party in the space. Powerful modern shower, huge bathtub. Such a comfortable bed. Exceptional value. The town of Lugo is fascinating and really I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is a family run hotel, so they ask that you let them know if you will be late in or early leaving as the front doors are locked overnight-so maybe not ideal if you are party animals- which we were not! I am dreaming of an excuse to go back and stay for longer.....Oh and did I say how much I love this place..

We were 6 people travelling in large "people carrier" so reaching the hotel in this was tricky! There is a new car park next to the hotel, however you need to drive through a small roman arch to reach it. It can be done easily in a car, we managed it in our Mercedes 'tank' but it was a challenge. Don't let that discourage you from booking this hotel. Very beautiful rooms, stunning bathrooms and a great location. Yes the red light 'corner' is near but you don't need to pass it and at no time did we see anything unsavoury anywhere near the hotel, the area seemed quite safe. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice, there is also a quirky bar which was great for a nightcap. The Manager/Owner? Spoke very little English but we managed and the girls on the desk spoke enough for us to get by. A great hotel at a very reasonable rate for the quality of the accommodation.

Room Tip: Our 3 rooms all beautiful, I saw the room they call economy room and it was also stunning.

Loved this hotel. How to describe it? Maybe 'eclectic' will do. How else can I describe the decorations? Old trumpets on the breakfast room wall! My husband walked in and grabbed his camera and I lost him for about an hour as he wandered around taking pics. I'm glad I'm not the person doing the dusting, but hey .. it is absolutely gorgeous. We had a huge room with windows in two walls. Massive bathroom. Incredibly comfy bed and ENORMOUS tv. Great position in Lugo. I shall never forget flinging the shutters back and realising we were looking straight onto the Roman walls, and at one of the few points where the view isn't built out. Staff are lovely. Breakfast is a bargain for E12 and absolutely delicious, featuring local Galician produce.

Room Tip: I doubt there's a bad room in the place... but see if you can get a room looking at the walls. T...

We loved the hotel for its historical features, the superb room with a comfortable bed they upgraded us to and of course the location close to shops, bars and the Roman wall and the great cathedral. Parking is right opposite, turn right when on the city road close to the hotel.

We stayed in this beautiful property for two nights in a double room. It was simply outstanding. A stunning kingsize bed unlike the two single bed combination you find in many spanish hotels. The mattress was memory foam and the sheets were of a very high thread count and clean and bright white.

The room had a 50 inch wall mounted tv yet was period in all its theme. High quality period furnishings, a stunning marble bathroom with huge bath and shower and dressing gowns in the wardrobe. The room was unique and classy and unlike the boring bland hotel rooms we are all used to.

Mini bar was a bit too pricy it must be said but was stocked with beers, wines, water, snacks and spirits.

The room was very spacious with air conditioning and central heating. There was an abundance of reading material and local knowledge available in the room.

We found reception to be warm and friendly and very attentive to our needs. The hotel is locked from midnight to 8am and you will get a key to open the main doors when you arrive back late from the many fabulous tapas bars that are seconds from the hotel.

Location perfect, room perfect, staff perfect.

100%.
