Stayed here on the 2nd to last night on the Cycle Camino, and it was a good choice. Rooms were ok, although a bit lower in standard than others on the trip. The meals were great though, and more than enough to feed the hungry stomachs. Just far enough out of town to avoid temptation, but alongside the Camino Trail...

We stayed here while walking the Camino. It is directly on the Camino. The rooms are fairly modern and clean. The service is marginal. You have to wait for a waitress to have time to leave the dining area to come to the pension desk to check in and any time you need service. Because it is out from town,...

This pension is located on the outskirts of town. It has a truck stop feel to it. Is it quite far from the old city and bars/restaurants and one doesn't feel like walking all that far and back after a day on the Camino. The room was bare bone with one plastic chair. There was mold in the shower. Our...

The hotel is easy to find along the freeway after a 10hour walk on the Camino, a nice place to settle for the night. Good variety of food, staff were very helpful. Bathroom clean and strong wifi signal.

Nice rooms almost new, good tapas at restaurant terrace with a good deserved beer after Camino walk, attentive staff, nearby gas station with convenience store. Trending opportunity in region waitress service at restaurant a bit rude. Beside that nice stay.

On the eastern outskirts of Arzua, the staff are welcoming & a modicum of English is spoken, you won't starve! The rooms are motel-like but none the worse for that. I was offered secure parking for my motorcycle & the fact I was in leathers made no difference. The restaurant food is more cafe than cordon bleu, but it's not...

As others have noted, the staff at this pension are hardworking and attentive. The location is convenient to the Camino but is alongside a busy road. The interior appears newly refurbished and was clean with a contemporary, unobtrusive vibe. There was plenty of hot water and a large shower by Camino standards! Though there are no laundry facilities, there is...
