This hotel was perfect from the beginning. It's small, clean and has great decor. But what makes the hotel great it's the people at the reception. Pepa was so nice, gave us recommendations for great places to eat and walk around. Very welcoming made us feel at home. Would recommend it to anyone.

Our stay at the Altair was one of the best we've ever had (we travel a fair amount!). The front desk staff all speak English and are incredibly friendly and helpful - we felt at home right from the start. When we arrived a little early and our room wasn't yet ready, we were immediately offered coffee and the traditional... More

Stayed here for two nights. Good location, less than a 10 min stroll to the Cathedral (slightly downhill all the way). Staff were very friendly and all spoke English. Our room was on the top floor, lots of room and a nice view westwards from the bathroom window. Bed was comfortable and we found both the hotel and its surrounds... More

I'm not really sure what a boutique hotel is. This one, at least, is a small establishment with only eleven rooms. The rooms as well as the public areas are very stylish. Bathrooms are clean as was all the rest. Staff was friendly and location good.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at hotel Altair at the beginning of October, after completed the Camino de Santiago, and we can say that the stay there was magnificent. We had a great experience with all the hotel staff, but in particular with Teresa, who went above and beyond to take care of us, even preparing a delicious... More

The hotel Altair is a small boutique hotel with 11 rooms. It is located just outside of the old town. The Cathedral is in a 10-minute walking distance through narrow alleyways. The hotel has been completely renovated and all is in excellent condition. The rooms are adequately sized and decorated with flair. The beds are comfortably equipped with a writing... More

It was by chance that we stopped by this hotel and I was glad we stopped to ask. After a day's driving, it was fantastic to be greeted by the smiling reception staff. The room was super and the breakfast was great. Unlimited coffee and fresh orange juice. The local bread and spreads were delish. Parking is not a problem... More

The hotel is not easy to find in the one way system of Santiago with loads of road works going on. However once there the staff could not have been more helpful, even down to ensuring safe parking in the car park for our classic cars. They also arranged a guide of the old city who was excellent. They only... More
