Wonderful place to stay! I arrived wet and tired after having biked the Camino from Porto. I was immediately taken in and taken care of. Fortunately, my room was ready, and I was encouraged to go upstairs and take a hot shower. My bike was out in storage and the staff facilitated the shipping back to Lisbon. The garden is... More

We stayed at another hotel owned by the same family nearby and decided to stop by for some refreshments. The staff was friendly, the prices very reasonable, and the garden most relaxing. It is located just within the historical area.

If you want to enjoy and appreciate good and friendly service where the staff wants to make your stay even better, this is the charming small hotel to stay at. Be sure to book the garden facing rooms for more space and to enjoy the great sunroom attached. The hotel just went through an extensive 3 month remodel, and it... More

This charmingly decorated hotel has a wonderful friendly atmosphere, with really helpful staff who provide lots of tips on off-the-beaten-track sights and restaurants. It may not be an ideal place for a quiet rest after the Camino - we found that the bed was a little uncomfortable and the wooden floors throughout the building made for a lot of noise... More

Hotel Costa Vella offers exceptional hospitality in Santiago de Compostela. This small, charming, and affordable family run property offers convenience, professional service and a wonderful treat at the end of a Camino walk. The family also offer self catering apartments and another two stylish properties in the same street, just metres from the centre of town. Secure parking can be... More

The location of the hotel is excellent, in the old part of the town. Rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast is good though it is the only thing that could be improved a little bit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Although there is no lift, they help with the luggage. Recommended place to stay in Santiago!

We stayed here for two nights in October on our way to Portugal. It is charming in the way that small European hotels are. What makes this hotel special is the staff who provided us with wonderful service. There is a small cafe attached with a beautiful garden. The breakfast was delicious. It is located in the heart of the... More

A beautiful place tucked away in the old town of Santiago. Didn't stay in the hotel but definitely worth a visit to sit and relax with a coffee in the gardens. Gorgeous place to go and unwind! Recommend a visit!

I stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely room on the top floor under the eves, with a big skylight. Really cool! Staff was nice, location is a little out of the fray, you'll probably want to take a cab from the train station, but for access to the central part of Santiago, it a very short walk.... More
