Everything is right about this hotel, clean , very helpful staff rooms are good ...BUT not if you are a tourist unless you particularly want to be opposite Decathlon or McDonald's or Lidil ! It's a very long walk to the Castle Square area 25 mins i would say at least ! So unless you particularly want to be opposite a retail park it's not for you! It IS a 10 walk from the bus station though! Lovely hotel wrong location...for me !
Once we found our way in to this centrally located hotel it was well worth the wait. Nicely refurbished, nice reception, bar area and our well appointed spacious room that overlooks the square. Initially the underground car park entrance seemed difficult to find, but is only minutes away, with the pedestrian entrance just across the square. Continental breakfast is served in the basement restaurant, most enjoyable with fresh produce and a good choice. Ample shops, bars and restaurants in the surrounding streets and alleyways provide an abundance of choice of places to have a beer or a meal. A great atmosphere all around with many of the bars serving tapas with a beer. The castle is worth a look for the energetic but watch your stepping as some of it is quite difficult in places. But a lot of history and some great views. We didn't eat at the hotel but judging by the outside restaurant area it was always busy, so, seems a good place to eat. Had we been here more than two nights we would have given it our custom. If I'm ever back in Ponferrada I would certainly return to this wonderfully clean hotel where the staff are pleasant, helpful and cheery. Not forgetting housekeeping staff who do a wonderful job.

Should you ever find yourself in the town of Ponferrada (it’s on the Camino de Santiago) I strongly recommend that you treat yourself to lunch in the Ponferrada Plaza Hotel. We staggered into this modern hotel on a busy road after a hot afternoon walk from the train station, and when we had checked in to a comfortable room for two, the receptionist told us the Menu del Dia lunch was available in the restaurant. The price was €22 per person. Though a little sceptical of menus del dia in general, we decided it was too hot to explore further. It turned out to be a great. decision. The shaded dining room, occupied by a few family groups finishing their meals, had crisp linen tablecloths bedecked with a serious array of cutlery. The service was of impeccable quality and it was matched by the food. We started with an amuse bouche of watermelon soup, followed by a starter of grilled asparagus and wafer-thin ham slices, accompanied by crackers and foie gras. The fish we selected for our main course was all gone, but the head waiter, in consultation with the chef, suggested bacalao and began to explain it to us. He offered to find other fish if we preferred (There was a river nearby!) We assured him that we liked bacalao - and it was the best we ever tasted, served with daupinoise potatoes. Did I mention the wine? We expected that a Menu del Dia would include a glass of wine each. I was glad to see the waiter pour two generous measures of cold white wine, and I was even gladder when he left us the bottle, cooling in an ice-bucket to one side. After a sorbet, followed by dessert and great coffee we voted this to be one of the most memorable meals ever. Maybe it was the unexpected silver service quality, the superb cooking, the great value, the friendly but unobtrusive ambience, or the relief of such a find after a long train journey – but we’d be glad to go back and do it all again tomorrow!…
We booked a non-smoking room to be given a room that smells like an ashtray with air conditioning that is no more than a fan to move the smelly air around. The sheets are so threadbare they tore in the middle of the night. Free wifi is dodgy. Very disappointed and have left unwell from breathing the putrid air all night.
Overall a good experience. Maybe a little on the expensive side, because there is a wealth of accommodation available. It really is a Business hotel. Everything worked fine. Room was fine, not stuffy. Modern bathroom. No complaints.
