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... More

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... More

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... More

A modern comfortable room with 4 beds so plenty of space for two people. Only one plastic chair though, so took turns to sit down. Lots of flies are a nuisance. Free WiFi. About a mile walk into the town centre. Dinner was really bad - probably the worst on the Camino. Breakfast was better than the average though with... More

Recently refurbished hotel - lovely room, very comfortable with good facilities. Good staff but food rather dear in comparison with other places on The Camino. Would recommend it as the staff were very helpful and it was excellent value.
