Day 3 of our Camino walk and we arrive at Hotel Carlos 96, I have to say I wasn't expecting much as it was listed as a one star property. We were more than pleasantly surprised and the service was second to none. The owners son spoke English so we didn't have to worry about using our completely useless Spanish!!... More

This was a great find on Day 3 of our Camino journey. I was greeted by Luis on arrival and managed to speak to him in my poor Spanish. I quickly realised he had fluent English which helped. I originally arranged a triple room for this stage of the Camino. I was delighted with the very spacious room which was... More

I gave up trying to book hotels much in advance while doing the camino walk because never knew how many miles we could walk in a particular day. No problem getting rooms at hotel Carlos. The father and mother run the kitchen and son the reception and bar. They have lived in England so no problem w communication. Set meal... More

We were midway to our camino and Carlos 96 was our stop at Melide. It is a family-owned small hotel. Luis, the son of the owner, is very friendly and spoke excellent English having studied in London. The rooms are very big/spacious. They can even accommodated four guests in a room in 4 individual beds. We were a group of... More

I did a cycling tour of the camino de Santiago in May and this is one of the hotels we stayed in. Let me be clear that it's a basic hotel so don't be expecting 4-star accommodation. However, the room we stayed in was large and for people like my brother and me, travelling with our bicycles, we needed space... More

Spent a night here as Bicigrinos on the Camino in May 2014. The hosts Victor and Luis were brilliant couldn't have been more welcoming. As a bicigrino I found the hotel perfect with great parking for the bikes. Had a great night in the bar being plied with Estrella Galicia Negra which they even allowed to come to room temperature...

As Camino Pilgrims we were very taken with this family owned business. The brothers made the flaming Queimada brandied wine for us and as they ladled it up from the bowl and poured it back in the flames grew higher and they took turns reciting the spells to distance bad spirits. It was all in great fun and we enjoyed... More

On a break from the tiresome Camino, this family owned hotel was much more than we expected. Good service, tasty food and fair prices. Random problems (heating on the top floor were dealt with effectively)

This hotel is very nice with a friendly host. I agree with previous reviews that stated that this is much more than a one star hotel.The rooms are spacious and very clean. It was under major remodeling, so the elevator did not work when we were there in April 2014. I do highly recommend this hotel.
