Our little group of 4 persons stayed here at the end of walking the Camino de Santiago. What a great way to finish this fantastic walking experience, to be able to revel in the amenity of such a lovely hotel such as this, and the services provided by the wonderfully attentive family members who run it. They couldn't have done... More

I'm slightly reluctant to give this review because I don't want to let the secret out. But at least I've already booked my next visit. Right in the heart of Santiago, there is no better place to stay. Okay, the rooms are a bit small, but the friendly environment, the great breakfasts overlooking the garden and the garden itself for... More

Family run with attentive staff. Sun rooms on each floor with a view make expand your room and allow time with travelling companions. Beautifully restored building with TV and great bathroom. Downhill to the historic center. Parking nearby. Loved the hotel and staff. Breakfast in the hotel cafe also great with a selection.

This is a lovely hotel, set in a perfect location. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see and there are good restaurants around for lunch or dinner. We found the breakfast at the hotel was also very good. There is a garden bar and we enjoyed that too, except for the guy smoking in the corner.... More

We loved the great service, and helpfulness of the owners and staff. We read and reviews on Trip Advisor and Rick Steves, and the property looked and is enchanting. The light, the windows and the garden... More

Dear Sir, this is Antonio. We really appreciate your kind words about our hotel. I checked the nights you stayed at Costa Vella and I have to admit that your comment is true but I must also say that is not usual. In fact as you can see we do not have bad reviews because of the street noise. Santiago... More

A special boutique hotel in a special city. Rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The garden and breakfast room are both serene and romantic. Family-run, with an attentive, accommodating staff. The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and a short walk takes you to the Cathedral and the sights of Santiago. Perfect way to end your Camino.

This charming hotel in Santiago has great rooms and the best service I've experienced in a long time. They even arranged 4:00am breakfast for us as we had an early flight. Actually they insisted we eat !! Stay here!! It is convenient to the cathedral and has a wonderful garden area to have drinks and snacks

Clean, comfortable, affordable, with excellent breakfast. Family owned and cares for it's guests. Each floor has a common 'living room' where you can spread out and enjoy the light and view. Very close to the Cathedral and in Old Town. Easy access to the Airport via cab for 21Eurs. I would highly recommend Costa Vella .... A very special hotel.... More
