“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 30 September 2011

We fell in love with Zaragoza and our stay at Apartamentos Sabinas played a big part in this.

The price is quite astonishing for what you get here. Our apartment was very modern but still homely. The bathroom was stunning and all the provisions were top-notch. Everything was super-clean and tidy. We had an amazing view that looked right into the main square, and everything we needed was within walking distance. Despite this, we didn't get much outside noise at all.

But what really made our visit special was the service. The staff that welcomed us, escorted us to the apartment, and answered all our silly tourist questions were so warm, friendly and genuine. I must give an extra special mention to Isabel, who was not only a delight in person, but also took good care of us after our stay when we realised we'd left one of our belongings behind. (Thanks Isabel!)

This will definitely be our home whenever we visit Zaragoza.

Tips:
- You need to go to Hotel Sauce to check in and pick up your keys. (This info wasn't provided to us through booking.com.)
- Free wifi is included.
- Parking is available for 13 euros, but if you have a big car, you'll need to be an excellent driver - the space is very tight!

Excellent location, fully equipped apartment with good AirCon- very hot when we were there.
Check-in staff variable, but good pre-arrival communication.
Brekky OK, but Pilar is wonderful- get her to walk you to the apartment.
Could do with more local info. in apartment but then the Tourist Bureau is only 100 metres away. Basilica, Goya museum, river, untold bars- all less than 5 minutes walk.

Dear Guests: It is true that our apartments are very convenient; everything is walking distance and no need to get any way of transport to discover the city. I passed on your kind words to Pilar, the lady that walked you to the apartment, she feels very flattered. We take note of your suggestion about providing the apartment with local info: there are lots of sights in Zaragoza that worth a visit. Isabel and all the Sabinas Team

We were blown away by the great reviews and photos on Trip Advisor and the official site, yet shocked to find ourselves shown into a shoebox. Well, 'shown' was barely the word. The Hotel Sauce staff walked us around but let a maid show us in. She barely spoke, opened the door to a pitch black apartment then shut it behind us as we fumbled for light switches! The room was tiny. I guess we expected the great apartments everyone raved about, but checking our booking.com reservation turns out we had booked a 'room'. It was so tight you had to walk carefully past the bed ends so as not to hit the wall mounted tv and the luggage stand in the hallway tripped us daily. Great to see a fridge in the room but it us hidden away under the desk requiring a crawl to use it. Then when night came, work in the square outside the window carried on well after dark. Our first night saw some tented stalls with metal frames disassembled noisily and our second night, some new exhibit was installed starting at nine pm. It involved aur compressors and other loud equipment. But it's the noise from fellow guests that is the worst. Every door slam, conversation and miscellaneous bang echoes throughout the building meaning to sleep, ear plugs are a must. Finally, the beds are ultra soft and saggy.

The positives? They echo the others here. It is in an unbeatable location, has great views of the basilica, has terrific air con, reliable strong free wifi and a large bathroom that is beautifully designed. It is also ok value at 65 euro. It's not enough.

Sadly, it was unable to live up to the hype and we were quite happy to move on.

Dear Guests: We feel very bad everything went wrong this time. We are sorry we did not fulfilled your expectations. We agree that it is a bit confusing when making the reservation online to choose between a room and an apartment. So you must pay attention and read carefully when making the reservation online. But it is also true that most of our guests love the rooms not only the apartments. We take good note of your complaints about your noisy guests neighbours and the cleaning lady that did not welcome you in a warm way. Sorry for all the inconveniences that this may have caused you and we will do our best to try that this does not happen again. Our best regards from Isabel and all the Sabinas Team.

Excellent location overlooking the square and basilica. Checked in at the nearby Hotel Sauce, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, walked us round to the apartment and showed us how everything worked. The apartment was very spacious, clean, well furnished with high quality modern bathroom and kitchen. Good value for money and all the facilities you could want, including dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, kettle, 2 flat screen TV's, free wi-fi.
The Hotel Sauce car park was too small for our car (Land Rover Discovery) but the lady at reception very helpfully gave us directions to a nearby car park which they get a discounted rate at.
Zaragoza is a very interesting city, well worth a visit, we only stayed a day en route to the south of Spain but could have gladly spent a few days there if we had more time. I can thoroughly recommend the Apartmentos Sabinas Bayeu and the Hotel Sauce which we stayed at on our return journey.

We were overwelmed by the beauty and richeness of culture of Zaragoza.

The appartement was beautuful, clean, quiet and efficiently designed. It was on the best location imagianable. Suggest to keep the wifi operationable at night and look for a position of the refrigerator accessible for old people. But I repeat it was a wonderful appartement.

These apartments are incredibly comfortable and clean. I wish we had planned for a longer stay. We had two apartments ( group of 6) and there wasn't anything we didn't have availble. Finding the Hotel Sauce, where one has to register, was tricky but again, the accommodations and the welcoming staff made it worthwhile. The location is right off the plaza in front of the cathedral and a couple blocks to the main street where many sidewalk restuarants are located. We never expected the all inclusive kitchen and laundry facilities and the nice size room. This was well worth the price. We had a nice walk around the corner back to the Hotel Sauce for breakfast which was tasty and offerred a little of everything. The staff at breakfast was warm and went out of their way to make sure everyone was satisfied. Parking is a problem in this area of the city, but the hotel has arrangements with a below ground parking garage which was less than a block away and safe to park at and staff walk to and from. I would go back and stay for a couple days!

I can't say enough about our accomodation and Zaragoza itself. First, the flat, which was great - modern, absolutely silent (as noted, we over looked the most discreet protestors and tent city when we were there, but with windows closed it was fine. Air conditioning made it very comfortable. The view of the basilica was lovely, both day and night. As for Zaragoze, it's an ideal halfway point when going from Valencia to Santander. More than that, though - it's a super small city in its own right. There's a nice busy vibe during the day, with cafes and coffeehouses full, everyone talking, people watching, shopping, etc. La Seo was incredible, with many small chapels, each with a different style and history. The main square is striking - Roman, Moorish, Christian and modern architecture all within 5 minutes' stroll. One more thing, the staff at Hotel Sauce, who manage the Apartments, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We'll plan our trips for a stop here every time we visit Spain!
