It was a very good choice. The room was very nice and quiet. The staff was very friendly and the hotel location is the most appropriate one, inside the old town. The restaurant offers very nice food and wine.

I was so excited about this trip but the Hotel was an disapointment. The locaion is the only thing quite good but they offer such a poor service, staff completely useless. What I paid for my room wasn't worth at all. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

We stayed her for 4 nights over the new year and thought this was a great find. Good location, good value, and beautifully decorated (Its two old houses – with lots of details like big granite fireplaces). It’s quite simple (e.g. there may not always be someone on reception / you have a door code) but we were made so... More

A party of 6 of us have just returned from Santiago and we stayed at this hotel. Can't fault it. The staff were very friendly unlike another reviewers opinion. Rooms were spacious and very clean. It's location is brilliant, very close to the cathedral and quaint old town streets, without being in the bit that I would imagine can be... More

Very pleasant Staff, clean rooms, nice decor, basic. Things I'm accustomed to (added amenities) are wanting: extra towels, safe, mini-fridge. Lack of air conditioning requires open windows, letting street noise in. 10-minute Walk to the Cathedral of Saint James (Santiago). Lots of quaint, narrow streets with an abundance of restaurants/tapas bars and/or shopping close by. Difficult to find, more difficult... More

This hotel provided us a good base to enjoy the city. It is nothing special, but it is clean and comfortable. A bit noisy late at night outside on the street, so light sleepers be advised. There is no one at the desk after 7 pm, but that was not a problem for us. The biggest problem we had was... More

Don't let the one star rating of this hotel put you off, it is very traditional and has had a immaculate renovation. Stayed in a double and a triple both were beautifully decorated and had lovely exposed beams, French doors looked out over the street at the back and had a huge tv, only complaint no air con. Free wifi... More
