We enhoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious and confortable. The decoration has the oriental touch and for a minute you feel in Andalucia. It has parking! And it is 3 minutes from old town. We enjoyed the combination.

The hotel is located near many shops and some minutes from the Cathedral. Staff is very professional and efficient (they changed my room and stuff as there were works in the room next to mine). Rooms are huge and clean although walls would need to be refurbished. Internet is fast but you need to use a different code each day... More

The hotel is very well located near lots of shops and 5 minutes walking from the city center and old part of the city. Service is excellent and very professional. The only negative points I see are that the hotel would need a refurbish as it is stuck in the 70s and wifi is not very convenient as you need... More

We stayed here from New Year's Eve through the 3rd of January. The rooms are very comfortable. The best thing is the price. We were going to stay at Hostal Reyes Catolicos because of the location but it was too pricey. Then we found out that the Araguaney is just a very short (like two blocks) walk to the old... More

The Araguaney hotel is well located, just outside the old town. But Santiago de Compostela is a small town you can get the city centre in about 5 minutes. It is a good hotel, very comfortable rooms, but I think that for a 5 stars hotel the breakfast is a little bit poor, the swimming pool water was very cold,... More

We liked this hotel. Yes, it IS old and the rooms are "dated", but we kind of liked that - it felt homey. Our room was HUGE (probably 300 sq. ft), which more than made up for the dated decor. The bathroom was large and clean and the toiletries provided were high quality. The bed was large and comfortable and... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel on our way back from Spain. the city is fascinating - so many wonderful buildings to see. This hotel is very central and perfect for going to see the cathedral and all the other amazing architecture in Santiago de Compostela. The staff are also really helpful and speak perfect English. I really recommend... More

Beware of how hotels are rated in Santiago. This hotel is a poor 3 star at best. I booked in on Monday last and stayed 30 mins. Expensive 30 mins. The hotel room was very old and dated and the carpet was dirty. Couldn't even imagine walking bare foot on it. Lots of lovely hotels in the old part of... More
