Service was good, location perfect and the parking was good. Front desk staff were very helpful in giving restaurant recommendations for dinner.
Furnishings in the room were basic but in line with the price.
Location - castle of Tamplier very near (3 min) and this hotel just on Camino Santiago.
The location was ideal for exploring Ponferrada, and for escaping to the nearby countryside. The room was clean and comfortable with excellent soundproofing to the outside and a nice bathroom. Wifi worked fine.
Lack of a minibar in the room. Breakfast was optional, but the hotel cafe didn't look very enticing.
Excellent small hotel,plenty os cafe/restaurants in easy walking distance. Easy to find just follow the signs for the Templar castle and there it is
El Castillo was located next to the Templar castle and near the Camino. It is located near the older part of Ponfarrada.
Room was on the busy street side and noisy at night.
My main criteria were hotel location and free wifi. Room facilities were also good. Nice outlook.
Furnishings (curtains, art work..) perhaps a little outdated. Would have appreciated clearer information about room service
Good location, close to the castle. Reasonably priced meals available.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good location.
easy underground parking at no cost
Unfriendly and unhelpful staff, very noisy rooms due to total lack of soundproofing, very basic breakfast
