The lobby of Hotel Boston is grand with marble floor, stairs etc. The front desk only occupy a minor part of the space and an old telephone switchboard (antique) on display in one corner a few sofas to sit in and half stairs up the lobby bar. A few elevators up to rooms and I have never been standing waiting for an elevator. That is probably because it has never been fully occupied when I stayed there.
Door to room is thin and it is possible to hear people talk when passing but this has not disturbed me as hotel probably been close to empty. Bed is hard and it suits me good as I slept very well. Though, the controller for temp gives no response when turning and display shows room temp. I turned back and forth and thought it was no longer in use and was happy with the LCD showing 21C as I thought that was the setting. What I did was setting minimum temp and with the very thin blankets it got ice cold during first night. I found extra blanket second night and slept very well in the cold room. Beside bed you find a large panel where you can control all lamps, “Do not disturb sign” etc (same style as in many Japanese hotels). Room has a large LCD TV with a number of channels where I only found CNN in English but I did not search for more. There were a number of channels in Spanish and for a short time it was entertaining watching Jackie Chan speaking Spanish or the Chinese couple in a movie fighting with bamboo and speaking Spanish.
Bathroom was large but with a combined shower and tub. Overall the room was clean and well maintained.
Breakfast was good but extra positive was coffee machine and fresh orange juice.
Hotel Boston is good and in some areas very good but still you get the feeling it is a bit dated. The flimsy turn for temp, the thin doors, the motive of bedcovers, the panel for controlling lights… it all give the feeling of being a bit dated. Still I will return to Hotel Boston next time in Zaragoza.
