The **-star Rio Arga is exactly that - **, and nothing more. Its main asset is the location, why I selected this hotel in the first place. Had I known what I got, I would most likely have chosen something else. I had booked a double (one large bed) room and got no. 206 – about the smallest room I... More

The only thing about this hotel is its good location, the facilities are poor, break fast is not good. I had to change my room because when you take a shower there is water every where, in second room the water stand in the sink and you feel gooseflesh

The Hotel Rio Arga is a really good budget hotel right in the heart of Zaragoza city centre and a few minutes walk from the majority of the city's sights. The reception staff are very nice, but reception can get busy so you may need to wait a few moments to get served. The receptionists I talked to spoke English.... More

Lovely hotel and beautifully situated in the centre of town. However it is in the pedestrianised zone and is very difficult to find. We ended up asking a taxi to go there so that we could follow him! 5 euros well spent!!!!!! Lots of tapas bars nearby. Parking cost 12 euros which turned a cheap hotel into a more expensive... More

This hotel cancelled my reservation at 4 days before I was due to travel (flights and car already booked). My reservation was made months in advance, there was no reason given for the cancellation, no sorry, nothing, this is unacceptable. When questioned they said they cancelled becuase the hotel was full. Be warned.

Upon receiving your call checks and fuel system BOOKING were canceled that was not the hotel. We feel all inconvenience caused by this error BOOKING who was also involuntary. A greeting . More

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... More
