We usually stay outside Zaragosa en route to or from the ferry ports, but decided to try this hotel as the reviews were acceptable for one night, and the location provided us with more dining options. We used Google Earths directions instead of the hotels web site to drive to the hotel and they were easy to follow so I...

This hotel is no frills but for the price and location you cannot complain, plus the hotel staff was great so if your looking for something simple i definitely recommend it. Tip, a taxi from the train station to the hotel shouldnt cost more than 10 euro.

This hotel was exactly as I expected - nothing special but nice and clean with a great location. We chose it mainly for having parking available for a cheap rate. The breakfast was dire so don't get too excited that it's included in the room rate, but the staff were friendly, the rooms reasonably big and airy - the air...

We stayed for one night in June and started with a really friendly and helpful receptioist. Our room was pleasant and included a nice bathroom with bath and bidet (We have had much worse rooms in far more expensive hotels) We paid to park the car in their secure underground car park and they kindly let us leave it there...

Lovely foyer, but rooms are nothing like it. They are not very clean feeling and the decor is poor. It is fine if you are just looking for bed in which to sleep. Good location - close to the cathedral. Breakfast is inedible.

My wife and I paid 42 EUR (breakfast included) for one night in a double bedroom in this hotel. Our overall experience with the hotel was very satisfactory: the room was very clean, and although central it is very quiet. The bedroom was admittedly small (just enough space for the bed!) but was well equipped: flat screen TV, central heating,...

We came to this hotel as a second option based upon recommendations in Lonely Planet. There is a MESS of construction going on in town and it took over 1 hour to find this place due to all the road closures. If youŕe not used to Spanish streets, basically,... if thereś a street sign, assume itś a street even if...

Spotless, well located and helpful staff!! Quiet if you ask for a back room. We had room #2 which was the largest with a queen size bed and private terrace. All this for 50 Euros.

Very good hotel among the category of 2*(perhaps too good for this category =). I paid 42 euro for a single room(bed for 2 persons). Clean large rooms, air-conditioner, TV, excellent bath equipment, Rio Arga bath set, etc. In the very centre of Zaragoza, just a few meters away from main Cathedral. The people at reception were very friendly. I...
