We spent two nights at the Puerta Gamboa and really enjoyed our visit. This is a stylish, family-run hotel, well located for resturants, bars, and shopping in Vigo. Our room was bright, spacious, spotlessly clean, very comfortable - with a very snazzy bathroom! The family are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Next time, we'll make it...

We chose Hotel Puerta Gamboa in Vigo for our last two nights in Galicia, Spain. Great choice! Not only did we have a classy, comfortable rest in that intruiging city, but the owner and his son treated us to personally cooked meals, described the highlights of the city, and escorted us himself to our very early morning flight back to...

This very friendly family-run hotel is a gem! Rooms were clean and had a nice interior and they provided complimentary in-room wireless internet. The location could not be better, just a minute walk to the bars and restaurants by the port. We paid 85€ per night for a double room which made this place one of the more priceworthy hotels...

I truly don't have the words to express how fantastic this hotel is. We were driving all over northern Spain and Portugal and stayed in many places, and this was hands down the best. The father and son who run the place were incredibly friendly and helpful. We left from Vigo to camp on Isla Cies, and they were happy...

We chose this hotel based on the reviews here after going to a number of other hotel north of Vigo. Although not easy to fine due to street construction going on, we were not disappointed.

We felt so very taken care of! But we didn't sleep very good. There was construction work from early in the morning outside and lots of traffic..eventhough the windows are soundproof it still don't help. The walls between the rooms are like thin papers. We could hear our nighbour snore.

Way beyond our expectations. The hotel was recently redone and boy was it nice. The rooms were wonderful, the bathrooms were beautiful!
