Recently I was in Santiago Compostela for a congress. I stayed in this hotel. Nice location. The rooms of 1st floor are noisy. The breakfast are not 5 stars level but there are gluten free products. There is a problematic wifi which was free. The hotel is very near old town and of course only 5 minutes from The cathedral... More

I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The room was nice, comfortable, fully equipped. The problem was that air conditioning was broken, so it was rather cold to sleep. Breakfast was ok, location - excellent. Wifi is free (worked great), new password is given every day.

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
