Although we didn’t stay there, we did walk past the Refugio de Perigrino at Zaragoza on our way to the Bus/Train Station.
I think it was on a street called Predicadores, After the route passes the Cathedral and Plaza del Pilar.
It looked very nice but other than to confirm that there is a Refugio de Perigrino in Zaragoza, I can’t add a lot.
I am fairly sure that this is the only choice of accommodation in Burgo de Ebro, but pleased to be able to say that it is an excellent place to stay.
A Very Nice Twin Bedded En-Suite room with a large balcony costs 40 Euro and again as we arrived there mid afternoon we took advantage of their fairly priced “Menu” and have to say that the food was very good.
HS Danae is to the left of the main street close to the new Iglasia and even if it is the only available accommodation in Burgo de Ebro, it still gets my recommendation
The first thing to mention is that the Pension Los Arcos isn’t the easiest of places to find, we asked directions off several people and ended up in the main square by the Iglasia before backtracking to find it. As you walk into the town the sign for it is next to the entrance and that is on a side road and although this sign is easily seen when walking east, it isn’t visible when walking west into town !!
Never the less, once we found the Pension Los Arcos we were very happy with it – However the detour around by the main Plaza was a bit of a pain considering that this was the longest day we walked at around 38k !!
We had a very nice twin en-suite room with a balcony that was so nice that I popped to the supermarket for food and wine and we sat out on it and had a picnic style evening meal.
Run by a friendly lady and the room was fairly priced at 40 Euro.
If you decide to stay there it is on Calle Magistareo – Ask directions and I am sure you will find it
The first place that we tried in Bujaraloz was closed (Or at least no one came to the door when we rang the bell ??) so as we again wanted to take advantage of the lunchtime “Menu” we tried the Hostal Espanol – We were very pleasantly surprised to find that they only charged 38 Euro for a very nice twin bedded en-suite room (With TV and Ai-Con) so happily checked in
We were also going to eat there but when we were informed that it was 13.50 Euro for a buffet style “Menu” and that this price didn’t include anything to drink that we would eat elsewhere.
However as far as the accommodation goes, I can give the Hostal Espanol the best of recommendations for Perigrino’s staying in Bujaraloz.
As we had a shorter days walking this day we arrived in Candasnos in the early afternoon, we found the Hostal El Pilar, checked in, had a quick shower and were able to take advantage of the lunchtime “Menu” – This was only 11 Euro for a substantial 3 course meal including wine – a Good feed !!
The rooms were simple but adequate and clean and at 32 Euro for a twin bedded en-suite room offered good value for money.
We had to let ourselves out the next morning as there was no one around, so no coffee this morning as even the Hostal next door was still closed
Still – I would recommend Hostal El Pilar for Perigrino’s seeking Budget accommodation in Candasnos
When we arrived in Fraga after a long hot days walking and went to the Ayuntamiento to make enquiries about the Refugio mentioned on Mundicamino but couldn’t really make anything out – so we went in search of a hotel, the first one we passed was closed so we asked if there were others in town and were told yes and given rough directions, Fraga is on both sides of a river so we crossed the bridge into the newer half of town and there Stevie found the Hotel Casanova,
This is a *** Hotel so a bit more upmarket than we usually stay, Luckily for us the manager was a Perigrino Friendly chap and let us have a room that normally cost 70 Euro for 40 Euro.
It has a bar / restaurant and offers good meals at fair prices – Highly Recommended for Perigrino’s staying in Fraga
Our guidebook had recommended Pension Mundial for Perigrino’s staying in Lleida, saying they offered a discount on production of credentials. This proved to be a Great Recommendation because this pension is both well located and offers stunning views over the old city. Also the price of 32 Euro for a twin bedded room was Brilliant value, The room had a bath and a wash basin but the toilet was outside – But the Best thing of all was the balcony and the views from it !!
I would say it would be Very hard to beet this hotel on either price, location and value for money.
When we arrived in Bell-lloc d’Urgell. We went to the Ayuntamiento as suggested in the guidebook to pick up the key for the Refugio, We were again met with kindness and after new had shown our Credentials and received Cello’s a guy from the Ayuntamiento gave us a lift out to it in his pick-up.
The Refugio is located in a compound with temporary accommodation for workers on the edge of the town and has 9 beds in two rooms, a kitchen and good hot showers. Again, No charge was made for us staying there.
Very Good Accommodation in Bell-lloc d’Urgell for Perigrino’s with Credentials
The first thing to mention is that Castellnou de Seana is a Very Perigrino Friendly town and this made the whole experience of staying there both pleasant and memorable.
When we arrived we were all very thirsty as there had been a hot day with no opportunity of refreshments for the previous 10k, so we popped into “The Bar Modern” for a well deserved beer. The landlady guessed that we were Perigrino’s and asked us if we were staying at the Refugio there, when we replied yes she telephoned the key holder and he came around with his van to transport our rucksacks for us as well as taking our Credentials to the Ayuntamiento for a cello. As there wasn’t anywhere that normally cooked meals in Castellnou de Seana in the evenings that Landlady of “The Bar Modern” kindly offered to cook us dinner (And make allowances for one of our group who was vegetarian)
So we went to the Refugio (No charge was made for us to stay) and showered (Good Hot Showers) and then back to “The Bar Modern” for an excellent dinner and a couple more beers ;-)
We left just after 21.00 and when we got back to the Refugio we couldn’t get the key to open the door, No, we weren’t drunk, it just wouldn’t open, Stevie went to see if he could find someone to assist us, but “The Bar Modern” had already closed up, but he had a chat with someone on the street who phoned the son of the landlady and he came and eventually managed to get the door open and we got back into the Refugio.
So all was well that ended well and we will always remember the kindness and hospitality we received at “The Bar Modern” in Castellnou de Seana
Please note, “The Bar Modern” has a comments book for Perigrino’s and they will ask you to make an entry, Please do so as well as reading some of the previous wonderful messages
The Albergue Ca n’Aleix was recommended in our guidebook for Perigrino accommodation in Terrega so that is where we headed for. It isn’t the easiest place to find as it is slightly off the Plaza del Carme (Next building to the left of the Santander bank) but once we found it we were given a good welcome. It is some sort of institution but Perigrino’s are made welcome and given an 8 bedded dormitory with good hot showers close by for the three of us at a cost of 10 Euro per person, you are also invited for breakfast at no extra charge.
There is a 22.00 curfew
Good choice of accommodation in Tarrega for Perigrino’s with Credentials
We had originally planned to walk to Cervra this day but we somehow followed some old yellow arrows (Probabaly an old route) which ended up taking us on a detour of about 5k via Montmanell. So it was already early afternoon when we arrived in La Panadella, So rather than walk another 9.2k, as we had a shortish day planned for the next day, we decided to stay there – This turned out to be a very good choice !!
A decent twin bedded en-suite room was 40 Euro and only 20 Euro for a single – But by far the best thing was the 10 Euro Menu – Probably the best value for money for food on the route.
A good choice of accommodation in La Panadella,
When we arrived in Jorba we followed the instructions in the guidebook and went to the Ayuntamiento to pick up a key for the Refugio but when we arrived we found it to be closed, a lady told us where the Refugio was located (just off the main street to the left) and to go there and someone would open it at 18.00.
Sure enough that is exactly what happened; we chose to stay in one of the dormitories at a cost of 10 Euro each. We were also offered both dinner and breakfast but we chose to eat in the town and set off the next morning before breakfast would have been available. A very Nice Refugio, Spacious dormitory, large dining room and well fitted kitchen and good hot showers.
There is a 22.00 curfew
This is a new Refugio and a great choice for Perigrino’s with Credentials
staying in Jorba.
Our original intention at the end of our first days walking was to stay at the Albergue in Sant Pau de la Gurdia, but when we arrived we discovered that it was closed (We now know that it is always closed on Sundays) and as it was the only available accommodation there we made enquiries to find out where the next nearest accommodation was and we were told that it was Hotel El Bruc, 3k along the road in the direction we had just come from.
So with little choice we made our way there. But I have to say that it turned out to be a very good choice of hotel. Prices were good for the standard of accommodation, 40 Euro for a large twin bedded en-suite room with balcony (I think it was 35Euro single occupancy)
Then when we got up the next morning we had a very pleasant surprise as there was a cooked buffet breakfast included in the price – So we all had a very good feed before setting out for our walk that day !!!
As we were arriving in Barcelona late in the evening and that after I finished the Camino I was going to stay in Spain for a further 2 weeks I decided that it would be advisable to book my Barcelona accommodation in advance, and also choose one that advertised a left luggage room so I could leave some things behind whist doing the walk.
I chose Pension Bahia primarily because of its location as well as it’s reasonable price, literally a two minute walk from Plaza Catalunya where the Airport bus also terminated
One thing that I would like to mention is that Pension Bahia had some terrible reviews on sites like Trip-Advisor, from my own experience all I can say is that I was very happy with the service I received there. The room was small but clean, had a small balcony, the breakfast included in the price was well above average compared to other “included” breakfasts I have received in the past. A twin bedded room with washbasin, but toilet and bathroom down the corridor cost 49 Euro. There is a 24 hour reception and although not exactly over friendly, efficient and courteous.
Pension Bahia is on the top floor of an old building and there is No lift (The latter is made clear on the website) and although the pension entrance is scruffy, the pension itself is fine. It is noisy, but this is because it is on The Ramblas, so as it is a noisy area, you have to expect a certain amount of noise in the hotel.
After I finished my walk I stayed another night, the things that I had left behind were fine when I returned and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again on future visits to Barcelona so therefore I can recommend it to others seeking Budget accommodation right in the centre of Barcelona
