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 do think a daily charge to use the safe was unfair and...

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...

A great hotel which as others have mentioned is central to the old town and near all the sights. We didn't have breakfast in our package so can't comment on that but it was fun to grab food whilst exploring. It might be worth getting to the market which is the next street along as it looked as is they...

Visited Zaragosa on a visit to Spain ...basically chose it for the location between San Sebastian and Madrid.. but what a revelation. Hotel was chosen for its location and it did not disappoint, round the corner from the main atttractions, the Roman ruins,Basilica etc. Hotel was on a little square with a wee church, fountain and benches where you could...

We stayed at the Zaragoza Plaza for 3 nights and although it has a really good point (LOCATION) it also has some real drawbacks: 1. Staff is not friendly, and sometimes even rude. We forgot to give them the booking vouchers when we arrived and the next day we found that our card key was not working. They did that...

Stayed for three nights during a tour of Spain and found the place and hotel enchanting. The hotel was selected mainly due to the write ups on this site and my wife and I could not have been happier. The rooms are beautifully put together with dark wood furnishings and extremely comfortable beds plus a beautifully appointed bathroom. The staff...

Agree with the reviews below, but a couple of minuses should be mentioned: Its pretty difficult to arrive to the hotel by car (we drove around in town center for almost an hour before finding the right way to the hotel) and they do not have any valet parking - a P-house some blocks away must be used. Secondly, the...
