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

We stayed at Hotel Carlos 96 while we were walking the Camino. The accommodations were satisfactory. The owner's son, Eduardo, welcomed us warmly and in perfect English. His father Carlos bought the place in 1996, hence the name Hotel Carlos 96 and renovated it. The rooms are clean and we stayed in a room facing the street with a small... More

When we arrived at this hotel in early February, I felt totally under the weather, both literally and figuratively. We were walking the Camino, and the weather had been particularly cold and nasty that day. We had had a particularly bad experience the night before in Palas de Rei where the place where we were staying had no heat throughout... More

Great location right on the Comino Trail . Staff spoke excellent English and our room was nice with a balcony. Meals were out of this world . This family run hotel had home cooked meals that were large and really good. Many locals came in and filled the hotel restaurant with several people having to eat elsewhere.

Outstanding staff, very helpful, first class meal from the restaurant A La Carte menu. Modern and much better than its modest single star rating. Very comfortable and quiet away from road. Handy to centre of town and about 150 metres off the Camino. Excellent value for money.

A simple, but nice hotel in the way to Santiago de Compostela. Clean, cheap, with very nice staff. Bike friendly. Last stop for bikers who are going to Santiago and one stop ahead for the walkers. Good restaurant. Very good stop for Bicigrinos and peregrinos.

After a long day on the Camino, we were absolutely delighted when we were checked into the hotel by a Spanish gentleman speaking the Queen's English. The owners and two sons really know how to make a visitor feel welcome. We had a late lunch there and then loved it so much we had dinner and breakfast there as well.... More
