Even with a plan supplied by the hotel it was impossible to find at night so we had to hire a taxi to follow to get through the narrow back streets. We stayed in room 204 where the bed head wall was next to the marbled stairs so all footfall was heard. Also virtually opposite the lift to all floors...

The walls of the bedroom are paper thin therefore everything can be heard. Our room was also next to the lift 212 so we had the constant up and down and the noise of people gathering waiting to get in and getting out of the lift. Also our room was described as having a balcony and forward facing. The balcony...

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...

This is a great place to stay for exploring the city. It is centrally located and very reasonable. Parking was cheap and secure. Our room was comfortable and clean. We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was lovely. Really helpful and friendly reseptionists. Low in price, but the room was clean and had AC.

I'll definately stay here again when...

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....

Stayed here for only one night but I would have gladly stayed longer! Room was perfect we had 4 people and it was very spacious. Bathroom in perfect working order, working TV... Location was very good it's literally in the centre of Zaragoza! Got a very good price. Would definitely stay here again!

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...

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.

Dear client, the hotel did not cancel your reservation, did the computer booking system and we receive cancellation, logically it was canceled. 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 .
