This is a modern businessmen hotel with all the comforts and amenities that the traveler needs, a very efficient and competent hotel with a nice restaurant, good food, well served and presented.Excellent breakfast table at what seems to be the standard price for buffet breakfast €12-15. I only have a comment being that I was on a pilgrimage to Santiago, the hotel is a little away from the CAmino, about a 20-30 minutes walk from the Templars Castle and pilgrims albergue. This is not a problem and gives the visitor a chance to walk through a modern vibrant city in Northern Spain.

Thankfully, my legs were not hurting today and they didn't feel like I was wearing ankle weights ... but holy ****, my bike feels like I'm carrying lead in the saddlebags!
My Camino research suggested pilgrims should carry no more than about 10% ...
... hours they want. One understands that they will be shut during the siesta time but they open at different times, they shut the shop whenever they want a smoke, which is often, and they reopen and shut as the mood takes them. Some shops do not appear to have been opened for months but still have a window display.
Daryl's leg is a little better and we are believing it will carry him to Santiago, a distance ...
We enjoyed being only 7 km away from Ponferrada, since the castle was only open from 10:00 to 2:00 today. We ran into several other pilgrims that didn't plan ahead and arrived after the 2:00 pm closing. We first visited the local museum that had great artifacts of the area. We then headed to the Castle and spent two hours exploring the remains. Ponferrada is known for the Templar Castle which covers ...
