Fodor's Expert Review Catalonia El Pilar

Calle Manifestación 16, Zaragoza, Aragon, 50003, Spain

Overlooking the lovely Plaza Justicia and the baroque Santa Isabel church, this early-20th-century Art Nouveau building is a tourist sight in its own right, featuring an original Moderniste wooden elevator and a facade with wrought-iron decorations. These charming features are complemented by polished, contemporary interior decoration and a restaurant serving traditional Aragonese dishes. Rooms are functional, with all the necessary modern amenities, but they lack the charm of the rest of the building. The hotel's central yet peaceful location makes it an ideal base to stroll to the sights without feeling overwhelmed by the crowds.

  • five-minute walk from the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar
