There aren't many top hotels in Santiago and the Parador has such significance to the cathedral and the pilgrims I think you should try and stay here if your budget allows it. It's not really the luxury hotel that the prices would suggest because it has to fit in with the confines of a very old building. The furniture is... More

We pushed the boat out to stay here for a couple of days and we were not disappointed. We were here May - not the busiest time- and therefore had room to move. We were able to drive the car through the wide pedestrian area to the hotel entrance ( right next to the Cathedral). There is some parking at... More

It's hard to say anything negative about our stay at the Hostal dos reis Catolicos in Santiago. We arrived tired and dusty after walking the Camino and front desk staff were very helpful and kind and check in was smooth and efficient. Porters and even housekeeping staff very courteous and welcoming. The hotel itself is magnificent -- it may be... More

Just entering this historic place fills one with a sense of quiet and calm. The hotel itself is a museum and its corridors and rooms are full of antiques. Still, the rooms have all the modern amenities and service is impeccable. Our room had a centuries-old stone window seat affording views of a garden. Just steps away from the cathedral,... More

Did not visit this time but have stayed there. Let me start by saying there is no hotel like it. The history and general ambience will hit you like a force ten gale from the entrance to the rooms. Try to get one overlooking the square. The food and service are exquisite. Lastly do take the tour.

My husband and I went to Santiago to meet up with my daughter who was walking the Camino. A stay at the Parador was something we all looked forward to ever since we saw the Parador in Alhambra years ago. The Parador Dos Reis was not quite what we expected. The building is huge, taking up practically one whole side... More

The best location in the cathedral square, the hotel is steeped in history with stunning architecture and interior courtyards. It’s quite conservative, with an older clientele, and lots and lots of tourists and tour parties wandering around taking photos. Given culturally how late-night the rest of Santiago is, it was surprising to see the hotel shut down by 1am, and... More

You can taste history before entering: the location and the building itself. In fact a leaflet enables you to tour the Parador and it took 90 minutes. We stayed in the "suite de Caudillo" - a suite adapted for use by General Franco so as one can imagine it was fabulous and included a balcony with a wonderful view over... More

Incredible sense of history makes this the place to stay at in Santiago de Compostela. The architecture takes you back centuries and the location across from the Cathedral makes this parador the one to stay in even though it is one of their more expensive properties. Have a meal here if you can't afford the tariff.
