It was rainy when we pulled into this truck stop/hotel just outside Zaragoza. We were looking for a place not far from town so we could go back to the Cathedral de Pilar during the next day. This hotel fit the bill with the bus service hourly from a stop a block away. The bus cost 1.6E pp each way, far less than trying to park and walk.
The hotel has a large restaurant in the same building with fairly extensive menus. They also will include breakfast but the price was high.
When we got to the room, we found it to be a corner room with double bed, a desk with chair and two easy chairs. There were two large windows looking out different directions due to the corner room. The windows could be opened but that allowed in the road noise from a fairly busy street adjacent to the property. The room still had plenty of room for two people to move around.
The bathroom was clean with a red tile wall over the tub/shower. There were four decent towels and the TP was OK. There was the usual basketful of personal care items. As with some other hotels, we had a hard time getting cold water (YES, I said Cold) from the faucet. And the radiator in the bathroom did not work or was disconnected.
The central heat in the main room worked quite well. And the afternoon sun coming in one window really warmed the room up.
We walked outside to find the bus stop and were surprised to find a full supermarket and a dollar store packed with household and unusual items. I recommend a visit to this store which is just across the side street from the hotel.
The bed in the room, the helpfulness of the receptionists, the location with the bus stop caused us to stay over a second day to get our trip into Plaza Pilar in downtown Zaragoza. We heartily endorse this hotel.
