I was looking forward to this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, but sadly was disappointed. It's a large hotel and our room had a nice big balcony; unfortunately the view was not great--just a big, loud street overlooking some industrial buildings. It's on the outskirts of town, so a long walk (at least it seemed in the heat, after... More

Wonderful family owned and run hotel. The owners speak English they are very friendly and accommodating (I am a vegan in a country where it is very difficult to find vegan food ) and the cook who is actually the father made a delicious meal on the the spot. Location is around a km off the camino. They are very... More

A beautiful hotel run by a beautiful family!!Rooms are extremely clean and the hotel is close to the camino. Dinner and breakfast were great. Out of all the places I stayed on the camino this was by far my favorite!! Five out of five stars!!!!!

Arguably yes. I speak Spanish. But these boys were brought up in London. The dad is the chef. Mum is front of house. The children do everything else. Food superb. Wine with dinner excellent. Chat great. We loved it. Part of our Buen Camino. Note if you are walking and staying here stop well before the town and go to... More

We spent 2 nights staying at the Carlos 96 while walking the Camino. Great family run hotel. Rooms clean and tidy. The food was great very large portions so you could order one main with a salad and share with 2 people. Owners spoke excellent English. Would recommend this hotel to any camino traveller. Had one of the best coffees... More

A friendly, family run hotel with some of the best Spanish food I had ever eaten! Luis was really helpful and accomodated us with warmth, making supper for hungry pilgrims before the dinner service started.

We stayed at Carlos 96 as part of our Camino journey, and we couldn't have been happier. This is a family run business, and it shows in the way the staff goes that extra mile to assist guests. In our case, it was a a knotty luggage problem we were having with the airlines. Victor, one of the owners and... More

Very welcoming family run hotel/bar/restaurant. Rooms were very clean and fashionable. Wifi worked well. The Pilgrim's Menu was off the hook good. Would definately go back to Melide just to stay at Carlos 96

Great hotel, close to the Camino, very quiet on the third floor considering it faced a busy street. Accommodations were great, food was good, staff was very helpful with information about the area. BE sure to check out the oldest cross on the Camino, just up the street. It was a great place to people watch when the locals came... More
