This is one of the oldest hotels in the World - not always a hotel (it was once the Royal Hospital of Santiago) - and has been standing for over 500 years. It was a priviledge to stay here and be immersed in the history of this wonderful building. Be aware that the cost of staying here is 'significant' but,... More

There's nothing more to talk about how much history is in this building when it's over a 500 years old. The story is beautiful. It's a marvellous hotel. Rooms are nice and clean with some very old furniture. Loved them all. It was like living in a museum. Breakfast was small and nice but could have been made better. The... More

What a building. Of course location is perfect and the building as a whole is great. Entered the hotel lobby not in my suit, but in my one week hiking outfit with backpack. Regardless of our obvious need for a shower, we were treated by the staff with all egards! Check in was done in no time and we were... More

Parador de Santiago de Compostela was built by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella in 1499 as a hospital for pilgrims. It is located on a huge central square adjacent to the cathedral where pilgrims have come for 1200 years. This parador has been transformed into a luxury hotel with interesting accommodations, an excellent restaurant in a unique setting and wonderful... More

we were touring as part of a group and spent two nights in the midst of historic Santiago. The rooms are decorated as fitting a historic building but with all the modern conveniences one needs. Exploring the hotel, the various seating area, banquet,meeting rooms, old chapel, restaurants is a history tour itself as the plaques (almost 80 of them) provide... More

For those hiking the pilgrim's trail, this is the end of the road and the end of the road is right in front of this hotel in the middle of the large square. The hotel was a royal hospital in 1499 to house the pilgrims treking to Santiago de Compostela. We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is beautiful... More

If you are fortunate enough to visit the wonderful city of Santiago de Compostela then, if possible, try and stay at this Parador. Whilst Paradors are of varying standards, this is one that sets the standards. Its location simply cannot be beaten by any hotel in the city. In fact no other can come remotely close. It is possible to... More

I have stayed in literally hundreds of historical properties throughout Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa, in the last 30 years. This is one of the best. Although lacking amenities such as a gym or pool, the atmosphere screams history and class. Walking the corridors feels like being alone in a museum without guards. Beautifully renovated and modern.

I just left this Parador after a 2-stay. The building is really impressive and my standard double room was very large, with a comfortable bed and a pillow menu with 5 or 6 different types for you to choose from. The wooden floor in the room, however made a lot of noise when you walk. This was a major inconvenience... More

Staying here was an outstanding experience and we recommend this magnificent parador as a perfect place to stay. We were aware the pedestrian street was open to cars for guests at the parador so we resolutely & cautiously drove thru the pedestrian street to the parador which is located on the Plaza Obradoiro across from the Cathedral. A valet drove... More
