This hotel is a wonderful place to stay for a night in Santiago. Beautiful rooms and the restrooms in the room are fantastic, large, spacious, luxurious. The bar terrace has a great view of the cathedral and is a nice place to relax after a long day. The staff was a bit gruff and less than helpful on some occasions.... More

This hotel is in a great location right next to the cathedral has got four impressive cloisters but due to the numbers of people about it lacks the wow factor other palatial paradors have. No pool or balconies means you spend more time out of the hotel . Lots of bars and shops but once you've walked around all the... More

You cannot help but be totally impressed with this hotel. The grandeur and history alone set it apart ... It had me at the entry! Efficient check in and helpful instructions to park the car down the road and the public carpark (which was easy). The room was larger than normal Parador rooms and beautifully fitted out. The bathroom was... More

We spent an enjoyable afternoon and one night in Santiago de Compostela. If you are going to stay here, this is the place to stay. The Parador is a fabulous building, rich in history, beautifully restored, and located right on the main plaza, next door to the Cathedral and perfectly situated for an easy stroll around the charming old part...

We booked this hotel as soon as we knew the date we would arrive in Santiago, and it was more than worth it. We finished the Camino before noon, and were able to check in to one of our two rooms immediately. They were apologetic that the second room was not ready, but it was finished before 12:30. Both rooms... More

What you are over paying for at this hotel is that it is situated in a fabulous old building and located in THE main plaza right next to the Cathedral . However the facilities are sadly lacking and the rooms under whelming. The buffet breakfast is pretty good though and the restaurant impressive although again somewhat over priced. The staff...

It is rare to find a place that greets pilgrims and the posh in the same manner! After several days on the Camino de Santiago; we tired "pilgrims" were ready for a well deserved rest. Backpacks on our backs and dust from the trail did not stop the staff from treating us like royalty. The Parador is a living museum... More

Walked into Santiago through the tunnel and into the square after 500 miles on the camino and this parador was begging me to explore. The grounds are beautiful, paceful and the parador is so amazing. Hotel rooms are beautiful, comfy beds, excellent toiletries and clean..clean..clean. I could have stayed here for a month. The staff were extremely customers service oriented... More

When I stay in a 5 star hotel I expect to be made to feel a little bit special. I want the people who serve me to be happy to have my custom, and I don't think you get that feeling at this hotel, which comes across as rather busy and impersonal. You can't fault the hotel or it's setting,... More
