This is the best hotel of the region, no doubt about it.
The location is unbeatable, since is inside the basilica's area, near a jesuit retreat house that used to be the novitiate of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
The staff is competent and very warming. They know the region and are always willing to help, from tips about tourist points to transportation timetables, etc.
If your trip is a pilgrimage or if you live the ignatian spirituality, there's no other place I can think of for stay instead of Hotel Arrupe. Everything is prepared to accomodate people who wants to visit, reflect and pray. There's even a little chapel inside the hotel.
The rooms and bathrooms are perfectly clean. Free Wi-Fi all over the hotel, including inside the rooms. The hotel is silent, because there's no traffic nearby and the staff is very quiet and discreet. My wife and I've been there 3 times already and there's no other place we could recommend more.
Tip: Ask for a full board meal type reservation (pensión completa) with breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's the best way to spend a cozy time within the ignatian grounds of Loyola. And it's well worth the money. Taste the "pimientos"!More
