Whether you are on pilgrimage or just exploring the city this hotel is simply wonderful. All the staff were exceptional throughout my 7 day stay. The rooms were comfortable and the décor impressive. The lounges, restaurant, café and all the outside spaces and the indoor pool and jacuzzi gave lots of opportunity for enjoyment and relaxation. The breakfasts are so... More

It has been 2 years since I stayed in this hotel after my camino. This year, we were booked at another hotel in which the room was unacceptable, and promptly booked ourselves at the San Francisco. The rooms are still clean and spacious, and the large bathrooms well appointed. We took advantage of the swimming pool. Close to everything, and... More

Check-in was painless and our superior room with a separate lounge was a lovely surprise. The hotel features a successful blend of old and modern with a sympathetic and warm decor which is in keeping with its history as a monastery. Service was faultless, anything we asked for was quickly delivered. Extra touches were a piece of cake with a... More

Whilst the San Francisco Hotel building is impressive and the location is good, our stay was a real disappointment. The atmosphere was cold and impersonal. The reception staff were professional but there was a distinct lack of friendliness. The rooms are large but sparsely furnished as if the hotel itself has taken its own vows of poverty. Particularly irritating was... More

We stayed here for a weekend. Its position in Santiago is excellent. We picked up a car at the airport (from the extremely helpful Avis desk) and getting to the hotel was very simple. They provide valet parking. The hotel has been beautifully modernised within the old monastery. The room was well appointed but had very dark furnishings. We found... More

Impossible to fault this hotel. Have paid lots more for inferior accommodation. The rooms are very comfortable with all the mod cons. The restaurants and bars have great atmosphere. The staff have good english and were only to happy to help me out with a lost card problem. The hotel is a leisurely three minute stroll to the cathedral and... More

Although not quite as grand as the nearby Parador, this is still quite palatial. Outside it is an old monastery. Inside there is a good mix of ancient and modern, rough stone passages but also ramps and glass lifts, and the glass floors to show the archeological excavations are a nice touch. The rooms are comfortable although the window shutters... More
