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.

An important modernist building--beautifully restored and immaculately kept--in the heart of the old town. You can walk to everything, the staff is extremely attentive (and all speak perfect English), the rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is fabulous. We didn't get the promised welcome glass of cava, and the air-conditioning was turned off for the year (although it was quite warm...

We didn't know much about Zaragoza, but after our stay there last month we would encourage anyone to visit. The Catalonia El Pilar was near the center of town, and easy walk to the beautiful plaza in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar.

This hotel is in a perfect location to explore Zaragoza. Right in the middle and the centre of everything means you can walk outside and immediately see the beautiful buildings and the Basilica.
