My daughter & I decided to check into this hotel after a week on the Camino. I have never given a negative review but I feel this service cannot go unnoticed. We arrived at the reception only to wait over 5 minutes surrounded by staff to even be acknowledged! The man checking us in then continued to have a conversation... More

It is called the oldest hotel in the world and I doubt that this could be contradicted. It is certainly one of the most dramatic, standing proudly as it does at the head of the main square in Santiago de Compostela, one of the world's most visited cities. The vast building is truly magnificent and all of the rooms are... More

This is a beautiful historic building on the main square of Santiago De Compostela. It is within walking distance of everything in the town. The rooms are beautifully decorated with antique furniture and the bathrooms are nicely remodeled. The breakfast buffet was delicious and complete with long opening hours. There were also two restaurants in the hotel, we ate in... More

This fine hotel well deserved its reputation for ambience & quality. Our room was very comfortable. Staff were extremely helpful, & happy to fulfil any requests. The public rooms were stately& well appointed. Breakfast had variety& was well stocked. We highly recommend whether as a pilgrim or a traveller. Lovely cobbled stone alleys surrounding it!

THE place to stay in Santiago de Compostella. Been there twice now. Great location is right on square across from cathedral. Old world charm, historic and superb service. Restaurant downstairs is very good (cafe not high-end one) Recommended!

Fantastic!! On the main square of the city, and cattycorner to the Cathedral. Lovely rooms. Gracious staff. Good breakfasts. The action of the city as a pilgrimage site is in the Plaza ... as are other events. Last leg of La Vuela ended in the square while we were there, major hoopla, music, and the like.

This beautiful, luxurious, historic hotel offers a great experience. Located next to the cathedral in this World Heritage Site, the hotel is the perfect base for exploring this unique compact city on foot.

The Hostal de los Reyes Católicos has an insuperable location, just across Santiago´s Cathedral. The hotel itself is worth visiting and exploring as an interesting historical building. The rooms are large, comfortable, with modern and spacious bathrooms. Staff is of the hospitable Spanish variety, wonderful staff. The restaurants I tried were up to par. Finally visiting Santiago, Galicia, for that... More

Discreet outside betrays nothing of the luxury within. Lovely rooms with large beautiful bathrooms. Breakfast was everything we could have wished for with a possibility of bucks fizz - wonderful. The perfect end to a night's stay.
