This place is close to everything. It is on the Camino, a 10 min walk from the train station and a 5 min walk to the old town/castle. The service is friendly. The room is simple but clean and very quiet. The WiFi worked ok. There is a place downstairs for drinks and snacks. It is convenient and right out... More

I'm overnighting here at the Rio Selmo as there seemed to be little choice in the way of Pilgrim albergues here in Ponferrada but I've struck lucky once again. Room 7 is a simply decorated twin-bedded room but is clean, spacious and comes in at an excellent price (£24.98). It's also right on the Camilo route out of town in... More

I liked the location quite a bit. Right on the Camino, center of the city, just a few minutes walk to the castle. Numerous restaurants on Calle Espana were just a couple blocks away. The breakfast was not included and despite the nice room, I still thought the price was a bit high. For those on the Camino, there is... More

A pleasant enough hotel, a few minutes walk from the centre and castle. Friendly staff, but no breakfast available. The room was large but the air conditioning was poor, the TV had no signal on any channel, the ceiling light flashed on and off and there was no light at all in the entrance to the room. No fridge or... More
