In the middle of a shopping centre which is unique! Nice staff, good parking. The internet did not work in every room but they were happy to move you. My only problem was that the walls were quite thin and could hear every word said by your neighbours. Not a bad stay at all.

It's quite weird, but the hotel is pretty much INSIDE a big Shopping Center. Not really in the center, but quite close - we walked at night and it wasn't too bad. Make sure you know the shortest way to the city center! Pretty good for its price. We stayed in a triple room, it was big enough. Good and... More

If you go to Santiago de Compostela and dont want to spend lots of money in hotels this is the right choice. It's at 1500 meters from the historical area, and that's the only "less" that i found in the hotel. All the rest deserves a good revue. The rooms are good and clean (however a little bit hot), and...

We knew in advance it was going to rain every day we were going to be in Santiago so Area Central Hotel was perfect for our stay. It is located in a mall so while it was raining we did not have to go outside for dinner or do some shopping. The mall has apartments on the upper floors, so... More

Close to the city centre (you can be in the cathedral in a 15 minute walk!) Good breakfast and comfortable and spacious rooms. it's in a comercial area but there's a new shopping centre in 5 minutes walking.

I give this place a solid 3 star. The rooms were a bit small. But it was only needed as a bed. My big complaint would be- the heat was blasting all night, made the air so dry. I didn't sleep well. The positives- it's located in a mall with a huge supermarket in the basement. Tip- park for free... More

stayed for one night, my wife went for breakfast first and I went about half an hour later (still much before end of service). She had a limited choice of breakfast but still acceptable, I had almost no choice, all plates were empty and the little that was left was not very nice. I asked for some bread and they... More

We stayed at Area Central hotel for one night and didn't have any breakfast. The stay was short but good. Hotel is quite nicely located, about 20 minute walk from the Santiago old town/city center. If you arrive by car there are free parking spaces around the shopping center. The staff was extremely nice, they made our stay very good... More

I was on a whirl wind tour of Spain- 4 cities in 7 days and was looking for economical options for hotels as I wasn't planning on spending too much time in them. I read the reviews in trip advisor and decided to try area central. First, the price was amazing. About $40 a night in Late May through Hotels.com.... More

Perfectly situated from most everything since the hotel is on the upper floors of a mall. If you do not care to eat at the hotel, there are lots of eating places in the mall where you can find most everything that you would need. It was a good 25 min. walk to the Old Town. The room was clean... More
