... incredible to see something that old still working. We struggled into Ponferrada and had trouble finding accommodation - eventually going through to city to a Hostal on the other side - perfect. And right next door was an organic cafe. We were blessed with a gorgeous light meal finished with a warm Portuguese tart - yumm. We both took some ibuprofen to help the very sore feet after two long days walking and slept really really well - single beds ...
... need to change their plans and fly home. Tonight we settle for dinner in the Hotel restaurant after a brief rest and shower. Their outdoor plaza area looks just right and as we head out there we see Bill and Jackie looking at the menu. We say hello and agree we will have dinner together. They are good company any a good evening was had. They also have a rest day tomorrow so we wont see them again after this. Most of the people we have remained in contact ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ponferrada Plaza
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.
