Where to Stay in Ferrol

Guide to sleep in Ferrol

The city of Ferrol, located in A Coruña, is a popular place to visit, especially during times of the year like Holy Week, when the city holds a celebration that was declared a Festival of International Touristic Interest in 2014. Ferrol’s beaches also attract a lot of tourists including surfers who dare to take on the fierce waves of the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re facing the dilemma of where to stay in Ferrol, you can consider options in the city center as well as the surrounding area.

Ferrol Vello (“Old Ferrol” in the Galician language) is what could be considered the historical quarter of Ferrol, the first neighborhood of this seaside town. Today, due to poor local management and the obstacles to restoration posed by the area’s protected status, Ferrol Vello is completely in shambles. Even though some houses and establishments still remain standing, it has practically become a ghost town, so you won’t find any places to stay in Ferrol Vello. However, it’s still worth it to take a walk around this neighborhood to be transported back to another moment in time.

In the city center there are more options for places to stay in Ferrol. Here we’re going to highlight four of them.

First of all, we recommend the Ferrol Parador, found in an enviable location with views of the river and right nearby Herrera Gardens, the Church of San Francisco, and Reina Sofía Park. In addition, the hotel’s restaurant has gotten positive reviews.

Another option is Hotel Almirante, a four-star hotel right in Plaza de España. With an inviting and comfortable atmosphere, this is a great place to stay to explore Ferrol due to its proximity to all the landmarks in the city center.

There’s also Hotel El Suizo (three stars) located right in the center of town, nearby the bustling Plaza de Amboage. This is an old modernist-style building rehabilitated as a hotel.

The most economical option is Zahara Hostel, which is very close to Cantón de Molins Park and many bars in the surrounding area. Their rooms are simple, but their tortilla de patatas—always freshly made—is arguably the best you’ll find in Ferrol.
