Spent 2 nights in this hotel - quiet enough although situated in a shopping complex. Clean room, nice food at all meals, staff of hotel & restaurant : helpful. Cathedral was not too far. Reception desk could be more spacious and may be with additional lifts.
We booked hotel Exe Area Central as it was a reasonable priced hotel in high season. The hotel is part of a shopping complex, it is a good 20 minute walk to the old town up hill. There is another large modern shopping centre about 10 minutes away also walking. We had breakfast one day of our five day stay, as the breakfast was ordinary for the price. The rooms are ok. The hotel is dated but it serves a purpose. The hotels location is a bit strange but you have access to a huge supermarket directly downstairs, Which is great for supplies. The other shopping centre was modern and also had a laundry which was cheap and could do your full laundry in 24 hours. The front office staff are very helpful and they will assist with directions. Nearby are a couple of cafes and restaurants. Just be prepared to walk a far way.
Always been a good choice -- you're a pleasant 20 minutes' walk from the old city, in the middle of a newish, very quiet, and well-kept shopping center (Area Central). 8-10 minutes downhill from the bus station. You avoid the massive crowding of the touristy center, and have the convenience of a supermarket, coffee shops, shoe repair places, etc etc. on your doorstep. Good place to end the camino, or to begin exploring Galicia.
A neat, modern and clean hotel unusually located in a classy shopping centre 15 minutes walk from the old town. Practical with convenient parking nearby. A good way of seeing this historic town without staying in a noisy city centre location where parking might be difficult. Pick up your provisions from the supermarket downstairs whilst you're here too !!
My friends and I just loved this place and the people that worked there were so helpful and knowledgeable and could help us with all of our needs (restaurant, laundry outside the hotel and more)!!! It being located 5-7min from the old town helps you relax and still be close. Having a mall with cafeterias, restaurants and a supermarket right there outside the hotel is marvelous as well as having a bus stop and taxis outside the hotel door when needed! The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom magnifiscent! We had the best ciew from our room!!!
The staff are very helpful. The breakfast is excellent. Is conveniently located within a shopping center therefore you can walk a few steps and and find everything you need. Very clean and comfortable.
Nice rooms, delicious breakfast and you are inside a shopping mall so the supermarket is nearby. Great to relax after a day of traveling. You have to take a taxi or drive you own car to come over to the city center.
Ok hotel if you are tired after completing the Camino although quite a bit out from the city. Taxis varied in price from 5-7 euros. I hoped it would be nice being located in shopping mall but there are very few shops of interest although supermarket handy as e didn't have breakfast in hotel. Rooms can be noisy with showers/running water in next rooms.
Situated in a shopping mall, this is a comfortable hotel with good bedrooms, friendly staff and a secure car park. The complex is not fully let with a lot of empty units and no decent restaurants. However the town is a short bus ride away, the stop is right outside the door.
I am going to be honest with you, my review is biased. My mother and I stay here every year at the end of the Camino, therefore after 5/6 nights in Alburgues this feels like absolute luxury. I love it. The staff are friendly, the location is a bit random above a shopping centre - but the shop's are handy and there are a couple of friendly bars worth trying! Also you are only a short walk into town and the beautiful cathedral. Rooms are clean and well sized. Only downside was this year a group of drunk men returning to the hotel at 2am and talking very loudly in the hallway for half an hour... but I have only experienced this once so hopefully it was a one off! Great practical hotel!
