“A great place where to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

It's my 3rd time in the Spanish Arch Hotel and won't be the last. The staff is very friendly and always pleased to help you, the location is great, right in the center of town, the rooms are tidy and nice and the resident pub has a good atmosfere. The Hotel is just few steps from the best pubs and restaurant in town so, long story short...go there, you won't be disappointed!

this review isnt about the hotel itself, but the brilliant experience we had for food a few weeks ago!We were looking for a place to eat but didnt have much money so the 2 courses and a glass of wine deal for 20 euro is what enticed us in, but i didnt realise before how lovely the restaurant is in the hotel! The service was brilliant, the waitress was helpful and friendly and the food really was brilliant,i had the chicken wings and then the steak and they were both really tasty,I'm definitely going back again soon!

I feel a bit of a cheat counting this as a review for a hotel, but we had a delightful meal here on Easter Saturday afternoon. Staff efficient, friendly and fast. Well done to all as the place was well packed.
Would definitely come back and try a few drinks on an evening.

After looking at a few menu's around the Latin Quarter we came back to the Spanish Arch to eat. My husband had the lamb shanks which were to die for and I had the pot of mussels - they were brilliant. The meals were well priced and the staff were loevly and friendly. Inside the Hotels is beautiful - we had the booth out looking out the front which was brilliant!
Highly recommended for a night hearty dinner!

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time here.The room was very clean and service was friendly and always helpful. Although the hotel is in the middle of the action, there was no noise at night, which was a pleasant surprise. A great place to check out the action in the city center and still get the full comforts of a quiet room. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone.
