We came with our three kids during a rainy couple of days in Santiago and the owners were great. The place has small hotel charm, is clean and the staff all really friendly. Great personalised breakfast with the largest toast you have ever seen. It's located really well for a short walk to the old centre. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed 2 nights in July in a small apartment next to the Altair Hotel, it is an old structure but very clean and large.We had a very pleasant stay. Breakfast is amazing, lot of fresh choice and all the girls have been very kind and helpful with us. Don't miss it!

This is an excellent base for Santiago de Compostela. The staff are friendly and helpful and the parking arrangements good value. Breakfast service fair value for money. We had a room on the top (3rd) floor which was clean, spacious, comfortable.

We give this hotel a high rating primarily because of the excellent staff service especially provided by Peppa, Teresa, and Patricia; all very friendly, gracious, helpful, and professional. A backpack misplaced by the airlines was delivered to the hotel after we left to walk from Santiago to Finisterre and we were promptly sent a message when it had been delivered,... More

This hotel was chosen for us by our tour company and was the last stop on our Camino walk. It is a very comfortable hotel in a good location. Only 5 minute walk to the cathedral. The breakfasts are sumptuous and delicious. But what really made our stay was the staff. They were very professional, friendly and helpful. I highly... More

This is a charming and well situated small hotel. Our stay of three nights was most enjoyable and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and attended to all our needs promptly, whether it be to call a taxi or book a table at a restaurant. I would highly recommend it.

Hotel Altair was a perfect boutique hotel for exploring Santiago de Compestela. The staff were very helpful, rooms comfortable, and position perfect. For those with a car, the nearby carpark is only 200 metres away, and has a discounted rate of €10. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights after walking the Camino. Service was wonderful; the woman at reception was very helpful and gave us some dinner suggestions where the locals go. The room was not large but was comfortable and modern and we had no issues with noise. They indicated that laundry was 24 hours turn-around but I asked at reception... More
