Attention to details... The moment we arrived, the staff couldn't be more helpful. The room is spacious and has everything you need. Breakfast has so many choices including gluten free diet... The entire building is ozzing with character. The Cathedral is a stones throw from the hotel, with so many places to eat in its neighborhood... Worth spending the money... More

The hotel is top notch, no doubt. With all the expected comforts. A night there takes you back in time. Very good restaurant in the vaults. Location spot on. Great breakfast buffet. However, the staff proved very uncooperative. There was a pretty standard issue which could've (and in the end was, of course) resolved. Unfortunately the staff claimed it's impossible.... More

A stunning hotel situated in the heart of Santiago. Magnificent public rooms and beautiful bedrooms. Great restaurant. Very attentive staff. Loved it! Its worth walking round it just for its sense of history.

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...
