The location of the hotel is superb! Right in the center and quite silent at the same time. Rooms are of very small size, not mentioning that the bed was really too short!!! The reception was not willing to find a solution, did not propose an upgrade, nothing… Simply ignored the complain. Since purpose of the hotel is to offer...

Fantastic hotel, great location and lovely staff. It was a bargain at 55 euro a night. The €4.75 daily charge for using the safe as mentioned in other trip advisor reviews seemed strange for a four star hotel, but was not a big deal. The price was so cheap it didn't really matter. We ate at the restaurant which was...

Very surprising all around, this was just a stop on the way to Barcelona but it was a very enjoyable stop. Had no booking but they gave us an excellent rate. Front desk staff were very helpful, spoke english and couldn't do enough for you and were very accommodating with our 2 year old. Room was large, quiet, clean and...

We stayed here for only one night in late May 2010. The hotel was in a gorgeous location, only a short stroll away from the main areas of town. The area was quiet (well, it was for us anyway!) and picturesque, looking out onto a tree-filled courtyard. The room was as good as can be - very comfortable beds, clean,...

A gem of a hotel in a turn of the century home. Modern in every way, and a location a block from the surprising plaza of St. Pilar. The rooms are very quiet and extremely well appointed. Front desk was a help with sightseeing suggestions, etc. The breakfast was offered at a discount when we checked in, and it was...

Modern city centre hotel in a superb location within a couple of minutes walk of the main square. The hotel is very smart and the reception staff were exceptionally helpful, The room was well furnished and had everything you would expect. and the breakfast was excellent value.

I really struggled as I decided whether to give this hotel one star or two. I thought about giving it two, because it could have been worse. But at the same time, considering that this is supposed to be a four star hotel, and is the top-rated hotel on TripAdvisor for Zaragoza, I thought it merited no more than one...

We stayed at the Catalonia Zaragoza Plaza Hotel on December 2, 2008. We paid 65 Euros for one night for a non smoking room with a king size bed. This is a fine little hotel in a great location in a charming town. The room service food was very good as well. This make a great stop over if driving...

I had to go to Zaragoza on a Business trip for a week and choose this hotel for convenient location in the city centre.

The hotel is very stylish and the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. You couldn't have a better location in Zaragoza as its less than 5 minutes walk to the Basillica, about 30 minutes to Aljaferia and 20 minutes to the main museum. Loads of great bars and restaurants pretty much on your doorstep. We found the staff to...
