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

We stayed here for 4 nights in March, and we are leaving today. But before we go we wanted to make sure that sure that this hotel review was completed. From the minute that Lois welcomed us to the hotel on Sunday to this minute, every person who works here has been extremely friendly, generous with their time, and helpful.... More

Just over 100 meters from de Obradoiro square. This old monastery building has turned into a superb hotel; it has character, quality and good "ambience". Staff are helpful and the cuisine (both breakfast and other meals) was exquisite.

Great location, can walk to everything in the old city. Cool old building with large rooms. Bad shower - strange shower head sent water all over the bathroom. Free parking is a big plus if you have a car. Staff is very helpful.

We wanted to stay in good accommodation where we could park the car yet be within walking distance of the cathedral. This hotel proved ideal. It was not an easy place to find as my sat nav could not locate it, a few journeys around the town and we found it. The converted monastery still retains an air of tranquillity... More

this historical building has been restaured in a sober way (in an almost spiritual way, as the history of the building), but with good quality materials. A magical experience, very close to the center of town
