This is a nice hotel with lovely rooms and good location but they tried to charge us 10 euros for each of our two dogs when they actually only provided one dog bed and one bowl. When I mentioned this they said they only had a limited number of dog items so couldn't put two in the room. I therefore...

One of the highlights of our two day stay at Zaragoza was this hotel. Perfectly located at approximately two blocks from the Basilica and the Cathedral. We were so surprised to see the size of our room! The bathroom was huge and it even had a walk-in closet! Be sure to ask for a room on the fifth floor! We...

Nice and friendly staff. Hotel a bit old-fashion with small rooms. The breakfast is extraordinary and for eight Euro good value for price. Location very Central with nice bars around. A bit noisy when people leave the pubs in the early hours.

The hotel was very well placed near to the Pilar Cathedral and the old part of the town. There are plenty of tapas bars within a short walk although hardly any restaurants where a meal can be taken. Very efficient hotel with lovely clean rooms, great breakfasts and pleasant staff.

The beds were extra comfy after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel was in an excellent location, easy to find, had friendly staff and was not too far from the nearest underground parking. The room was large and we had a nice view of the street. Breakfast was a good selection from the buffet and well stocked.
