This is a high-quality hotel in all ways – we loved it here! Our room was only €89 a night and equivalent to what we just paid €200 a night for recently. Excellent Wi-Fi, good air-conditioning, small balconies, view of the church from our second-floor window, mini fridge, safe, all the things we were looking for. Nice unloading zone at...

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel one night (having booked through booking.com a day before). The price was less than 100 EUR and the room was clean, spacey with a good working A/C. Staff friendly. Central location (as such, you have to pay for parking). Overall pleased and would stay again and/or recommend to others.

The hotel was everything you'd hope it to be and the location is fantastic. The car park is fun to find, but it's only 2 mins walk away once you know where you are! Breakfast is expensive so we went out to one of the many local bars.

This hotel is OUTSTANDING. We recently booked the hotel to enjoy a weekend in Zaragoza with our dog. When we arrived we were greeted by a wonderful staff member who checked us in and welcomed us to the hotel. Upon arrival to our room we were thrilled to see the special touch of a dog bed and food and water...

This is a modern city center hotel, very clean and walking distance for all the local attractions including roman ruins, tapas bars and shopping areas. The rooms were nicely done out with all the modern conveniences as expected. The hotel is a ideal for a city break and for those persons not intending to spend a great deal of time...

I recommend the hotel everybody visiting Saragossa. Good place to visit El Pilar and the many bars and restaurants. Also the important museums are in the surrounding. I always will come back, visiting this town.

We only spent a night here on our way from Barcelona to Madrid and it was wonderful. The hotel is very centrally located, but it faces a very calm square and we were able to get an excellent night's sleep despite the fact that we were on the first floor. If you arrive by car, parking can be arranged in...

Excellent hotel and great location. Very comfortable beds. We did not eat the breakfast as we slept in. Helpful staff. Easy to get to from the train station and very easy to walk around the older city. We were able to leave our bags while we walked around the city before our late afternoon train. Very quiet.

We have recently spent two nights at Catalonia El Pilar en route back to Santander and the ferry. We had two rooms, one double and one twin -as requested - and which were conveniently next to each other. The rooms had everything you would expect and need, including a minibar with space to chill your own bottle. The rooms were...
