    There was a limited range of food in the cafe and it was mainly fast food, american style. Service was minimal.

    Room was very comfortable and clean. Staff were very kind and helpful. Location is great - a short walk to the old city. The breakfast in the restaurant was of good range and quality.

    The room was strange, in the sense of the how the side table at the bed is supported. Breakfast is acceptable, but natural juice is paid extra. Hotel is middle age.

    Overall is in a nice place, and a nice business hotel. Location is great.

    • Solo traveller

    • Stayed 1 night

    While the hotel was nice I felt it did not reflect good value for money. Given the area of Spain and the time of year I think the price I paid which did not include breakfast was too high. The price being charged for breakfast was also overpriced. Do as I did and have breakfast elsewhere. Food and drink in the hotel in general were overpriced.

    The hotel and room were very clean and comfortable. Great bathroom in the room which was much appreciated after a day on the camino in unseasonably hot weather (28C in April). Location is pretty good a 10 minute walk from the medieval section of Pontevedra. This area is fantastic and worth taking time to explore. Lots of places to eat and drink here. There is also a big supermarket on the edge of this area by the river if you wish to self-cater.
