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 was a return visit for my family and I having previously stayed here in 2010 and everything was as good as we'd remembered. From the moment you book to the moment you arrive you will be amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and can be confident that everything will be arranged smoothly and efficiently. When we... 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

Absolutely fantastic hotel and exceptional staff which made for a great experience over 3 day stay. Highly recommend this hotel and very accommodating staff. Located in great and quiet part of old town but literally only minutes walk to cathedral and interesting places/sites.

The staff at this hotel are so obliging and kind. They are also full of fun. Hotel good and breakfast good. If travelling by car at first a little difficult to find. Central to city. Would go again. Lift to upper floors. Lounge area adequate.
