Two of us stayed here after a very tough 30 km stage on the Camino in the height of summer. The small town is a lovely place to break one's Camino and the main church is beautiful. The room is very good indeed, with a very comfortable bed and a great bath to soak in. The location is right on... More

Really nice, slightly more up market property right on the Camino. Old style building in a charmjng street. Very good breakfast and friendly staff. Worth spending a few extra Euros for tge comfort. Recommended.

My husband and I stayed here after our first day of hiking El Camino in Sept. Our room was lovely with a modern beautiful bathroom. My husband, unfortunately became ill during the evening. The staff was so kind and concerned. We extended our stay by another night so he could recuperate. I can not say enough good things about Terri... More

This was the hotel we stayed in after our first day of hiking the Camino de Santiago. After a 15 mile hike, this hotel was perfect. The rooms were well appointed and the breakfast was excellent. They were very helpful with our bags and a late checkout. They were located in a great part of town.

I really enjoyed my stay here because the atmosphere was nice and quiet. I had a room with a balcony that opened out to look at the street. The bathroom shower deserves it's own post because there were all kinds of shower output options (rain, wand, jets). The only mild concern was that I could hear my neighbors talking, but... More

This boutique hotel screams understated luxury. The decor is warm, welcoming, and classic. The rooms have spacious bathrooms with rain shower, bidet, and hairdryer. The linens are like clouds. Seemed like it was out of a Hollywood movie.

First Villafranca del Bierzo might be the cutest village on the Camino de Santiago, and Las Doñas might be the cutest hotel here IMHO. Exposed black slate walls, foundations, lentils, and porticos give you the feeling that you are in the mountains of Léon, other materials like carved hardwoods accent this distinction. With a small rio cutting through town, the... More

This small hotel was a real surprise to find in a very "Swiss" village nestled in a gorgeous valley in Northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago. The hotel was 2 storey and had a lift which was welcome after a big walk and bags to move. Beautifully appointed room with no particular aspect. Very comfortable bed and superb bathroom... More

Hi: This was super reasonable, $85 euros in May 2015, for luxury on the Camino. The woman at the desk and I communicated via Google Translate to have her agree to accommodate us with an early breakfast (before 7:00) so we could continue our Camino walk early. She also helped us get reservations at the next town and was the... More
