If you're looking for a good value for money, centrally located hotel with friendly and helpful staff, a fair breakfast and a clean and comfortable room then Rio Arga is a great choice. The hotel isn't trying to be something it's not which is why it works so well and why it's received great feedback from it's guests. Although the...

This is the second time we have visited this Hotel. Great location for shopping and visiting restaurants and bars. It was a Saturday afternoon when we arrived and the atmosphere in the surrounding Tapas bars was an experience to behold. Our second visit was more enjoyable than the first as it was a Saturday compared to before when it was...

We was on the way from Barcelona to Madrid and decided to make a short stop in Zaragoza. First: The city is smal but nice. More than er expected. Less tourists and the friendly staff of the hotel helped us out with the best tapas area. It was great! But be aware: Going to the hotel is not easy and...

stayed here for four nights early October. Walked in approx 12 minutes from airport bus terminus with directions provided by hotel - would not relish bringing a car even with sat nav and garage very tight. Our room directly above reception was spacious and clean - comfortable beds powerful over bath shower that inevitably washed the floor too. TV has...

Nice clean hotel. Pretty close to a lot of restaurants and bars. Unfortunately we were a little late so everything was closing. Great hotel if you're traveling though Zaragoza. Breakfast was a little skimpy and we had to ask someone from the front desk to refill the food and drinks.

Very reasonably priced hotel with a location that couldn't be better. If you are looking for grandeur, then this isn't the place for you. But if you want somewhere clean and comfortable, located right in the centre of the old town, at a very affordable price then this will do the job. Staff spoke very good English and were very...

The best of this hotel is the location in the city centre. Not easy to reach by car, but they have a private parking that help. The hotel have everything needed to be confortable even if a bit old. Their price/quality level is good Breakfast sufficient

For what you pay it does the job. Cheap and cheerful! Location is great very central - only problem is finding it by car is a nightmare as sat navs can't locate it easily and the hotel's direction are badly translated to English! It's typical old fashioned 1960s decor, so not much aesthetically but main thing is that the shower...
