Here we are again. Our old faithful hotel. Left it rather late to book, in fact got the last room (103). It is no exaggeration to say it could pass as an ante room to the Sistine Chapel with ceilings some 20 feet high and painted with a religious scene of an ascension to heaven complete with cherubs etc. The only down-side to this room was that it is situated directly on the Sant Jaume and is rather noisy - little vehicular traffic but lots of pedestrians. This would not normally be a problem but we like a siesta in the afternoon and this proved difficult.
No problem. The next morning the manager moved us to a much quieter (temporary) room until one overlooking the courtyard became available on the following day. He, and the team could not have been more efficient and friendly. The location of this hotel could not be more central for the bars and restaurants.
The breakfast is brilliant. Can honestly say I have only seen a wider selection on offer in an hotel in Paris where we were charged €20 each!
It is true that the hotel lacks certain amenities that families may require but for a centrally located hotel it has everything that we need. If you have not stayed here in the past - just pop in and have a look around the reception area and the courtyard. It is on the 'walking tourist route'. There is free wi-fi in the courtyard and public areas and a PC where you can print your boarding passes.
Look forward to staying here again next year. Stephen and Paul.
