“Places to see in Santiago de Compostela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is actually in the Parador de Santiago. Since we stayed there, there was no entrance fee, so I'm not sure what the cost is. However, it is extremely interesting and is worth a visit.

“Old Hotel with History everywhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

What can I say as a Pilgrim on the Camino Frances that has not been said since the visits to this place since 1500's. It's a great way to end what for many is a month or more of introspection...unless you are heading for the coast at Finesterre. Was over 55 so I qualified for discount rate and breakfast thrown in....this deal is very good and would have been better if they, the Spanish Gov Parador authority would package a Camino plus one package to support the continued Parador upkeep. It would have been great to do 4 nights in Paradors aong the Camino and one final close to departure. The room was well upkept, views of courtyard worked for me to keep the noise of the Plaza down and the walking tour worked...even found the ribald contortionist....! Buffet kept me going and beat most Sunday brunches I have been to that are serve yourself. Oh and the location is awesome! I'd go and stay here again. Oh and the wifi worked:-)

“Try to take a look at the 4 cloisters.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Although the cloisters are normally only accessible to guest, it is possible to visit them. If possible try to take a look inside the chapel situated at the centre of complex. The parador is very expensive and therefore I would not recommend to stay there nor to take any refreshments at the bar.

“Bad reception”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Been here after each of my hikes and always got a rude reception. Can't say it tempted me to slap down my Visa and ask for a room.
