Agree. Hotel Suizo is also good choiceI stayed at the El Suizo and would do again.
Close to the main shopping street, restaurants and halfway between the train / bus station and the harbour where the Ingles starts. Was clean and comfortable. They also had credencials at reception if you needed and stamped mine first thing in the morning as the tourist office at the start of the Ingles was not open that early.
Hi Marty. I doubled checked after reading the above. It was not the Hotel Silva where we stayed.Hotel Silva is a distance from the Ferrol bus and train station. Not close to stations.
The bus station is across the street from the train station.
But is walking distance to hotel Silva if you like walking about two miles.
Hi Marty. I doubled checked after reading the above. It was not the Hotel Silva where we stayed.
[Edit: Google initially showed me the wrong train station. I got really confused. Ignore my previous post and the following.]
I zoomed in and the Silva is near a corner and on the opposite side of the street. We were nearby it though. Maybe it is out of business or hiding from Google.
We did walk quite a ways from the stations but it was because we kept being pointed here and there when asking if there was a hotel around (it was before we had a smartphone and didn't have a nav app downloaded on the tablet.) We bused in to Ferrol take a train out the next day (good story but too long) and it was just a short walk back to the station. The Silva showed as the hotel closest to the station so I assumed that it had to be the one.
I made a corrective edit to my first post too.
Thank you all for your kind and prompt assistance.Hi Rick.
Hope all is well.
Did you like walking the Ingles?
It is my favorite.
Growing up I lived in Seville. Then Ferrol. Then back down to Seville.
Where I now live.
Haven’t seen you since the Frances. Been few years now.
If you come to Seville give me a yell.
Can show you some interesting places.
Grab a beer. Fish at La Isla. Or tapas.
Not p I n c h o s down here.
Darn spell checker won’t let me spell the “P” word.
Stayed at Hostal Zahara Nov 2018 in a private room, great eatery downstairs. 5 minutes from bus station and a nice 15 minute walk thru historical streets to the Pilgrims Office and Zero Km.,
Once again, thank you all for the replies. I now have a second one. I am looking at accommodation in Bruma after that long climb. Other than the albergue, all other accommodation is confusing as any pensions etc. seem to be in other towns and not on the Camino itself. Also it is difficult to determine how far from Bruma these other towns are. There also seems to be a lot of pre booking for the April 22nd. Any thoughts would be gratefully received.Would definitely second the Hostal Zahara. Perfectly located and excellent food!
