We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We arrived after nine weeks of walking and it was simply perfect - the accommodation, the garden and above all the staff. Everyone went out of their way not only to be helpful, but to be welcoming and to make us feel at home. The hotel is beautifully appointed with lovely light and... More

Beautifully fitted out in restrained style, lovely garden, comfortable clean rooms, extremely helpful and friendly staff. Particularly enjoyed my galleried room overlooking the garden. Short stroll to everything you want to see. Highly recommended!

I was a solo traveller and enjoyed my stay at the Costa Vella very much. The breakfast was super and to be able to enjoy it whilst overlooking the garden was a smashing way to start the day. Ideally located for the old town I would recommend the hotel.

Staying at this hotel was a delightful way to end our hike on the Camino!. The room was clean and well appointment. Charming lounges and a charming garden added to the ambiance. The staff were extremely helpful with directions, excursions and dining. The location is perfect for Camino hikers. It can get noisy at night during busy times (noise from... More

Like something out of a fairytale. I stayed here after arriving from the pilgrimage on the Camino. The room had a lovely terrace with flowers that opened up to the streets below. Lovely wooden floors. Nice amenities. The Spanish breakfast was delicious and the views from the breakfast sunroom were a treat in themselves. They have a nice garden in... More

We stayed 2 nights at Costa Vella and enjoyed the location and features of the hotel very much. The hotel garden is beautiful and breakfast overlooking this garden is a lovely way to start the day. Breakfast, at 5.50 euros, was plentiful and delicious. The room that I had on the first floor overlooked the street and the view from... More

We have just enjoyed three marvellous days in the very glorious Santiago de Compostela. The weather was perfect that really did help - but that coupled with a delightful choice of hotel justifies our enchantment! The Costa Vella's location on a pretty street at a gateway to the old beautiful city allows all of the really significant sights to be... More

What a lovely spot to rest after the long walk of the Camino trial. Coffee and chips beautiful and the settings is so topically gorgeous. We highly recommend this lovely spot, to meet up with other walker's thanks Vella

This is the second time I have stayed at Hotel Costa Vella in Santiago de Compostela. Both times I have stayed at this establishment I have found it exceptional in all aspects. The people are very friendly and helpful, the accommodation is extremely comfortable and the location is not far from anything in Santiago. I was talking to another guest... More

This is our second time staying at this hotel and they have yet to disappoint me. Service was excellent, the staff was very caring, knowledgeable and kind. Antonio was especially attentive. The hotel is clean and filled with character. We stayed one night before the camino and returned after the hike en route to the airport the next morning. We... More
