Small hotel, old style comfort but not luxurious, okay breakfast, not near any restaurants for evening meals, but great view of Cathedral from our room. Rustic feel, clean, expected better from the tour company (small group tour). No need to return.

Dear Customer, Thank you very much for your feedback, we will pass to the owners immediately. We also will inform the receptionists to indicate either where the best restaurants in town are located, because one of them is less than 200 meters, as is the case Acio restaurant, but also offers cheaper pulperías 15 meters from hotel door.

Santiago de Compostela has a huge numer of hotels and other accommodation. Tihis hotel was rather hard to find-it is quite small and is quite pleasant. The room was spacious and breakfast was excellent. It claims to be 5 minutes from the railway staion-it is not! there is free internet in the lobby. good experience

We stayed here after finishing our 100km walk the Camino. Actually, this hotel was selected and booked by our walking tour company, Follow the Camino. It was a delightful location near the cathedral with a million dollar view of the cathedral from our floor length windows on the 3rd floor. It was breathtaking seeing the lumination of the church in... More

We really like the hotel, the service was friendly, the location was good (a short walk to the cathedral) and the room was nice with real furniture, with a rustic style.The people in the frontdesk gave us good recommendations for Santiago.

Travelled in April so the weather was not at all hot. Staff were friendly and helpful, giving public transport and sightseeing information.

This was a luxury hotel to finish off our Camino walk. Lovely bath to soak our aching muscles, comfy bed to sleep in and not far to walk into the cathedral square. Spacious room, dark curtains to keep out the light in the morning and on a not too busy street.

Situated next to a long stairway that leads into the old city, the hotel is close to the cathedral and an area of sidewalk cafes. Unfortunately, our room looked out on a busy and noisy street and, even though it was very warm and humid during the day and early evening, the hotel management advised that they do not turn... More

Dear Customer, Thank you very much for your kind comments about the hotel.
