Our last night on the camino Very old hotel, room was adequate but very basic, bed was rock hard. Walls are paper thin and we could hear conversations and flushings all night Food in café was very average, bordering on bad Friendly staff

The hotel is not very central, has rather basic furniture and no flair. The price is ok for what you get if you don't feel disturbed by the showers and toilet visits of other guests. The pilgrim menu including wine was really good, also the friendly service at the restaurant.

This hotel stay was the last night of a Camino package with Follow the Camino. The man on Reception was unfriendly, the room was not very clean but it did have a lovely big window at the back of the hotel. The beds were ridiculously hard. The food in the restaurant was awful - we were not the only ones... More

Hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Owners of hotel have really done their best with an old property. The rooms need sound insulation as noises of furniture being dragged across the floors, doors banging, showers running etc can be heard. The quality of the food in the restaurant is good. A regular airport bus passes... More

Friendly and very helpful staff. Great location for the airport, I walked there in 20 minutes, but there is a bus stop for the Santiago - Airport line right outside hotel. The hotel is old fashioned and could do with an update, but was clean and comfortable, and difficult to criticise at the price. I would stay here again.

Stayed for our last night on the Camino. Rooms were very clean. But were very basic. Service was just ok. Beds ok but a bit hard. A bit of a hike to the village center. Tricky to access by foot from the Camino

This hotel was a short distance from the Camino and provided a good rest - and bath, albeit a small one - before the final walk into Santiago de Compostela the next morning. The food was excellent and a good price.

So tired when I saw the small sign indicating the hotel 200 m off trail. We'll worth it. Staff friendly. Rates very reasonable. Very clean. Bus stops every 30 minutes to go to airport or into santiago. We'll worth a rest before the last day's walk to finish the Camino de santiago

We appreciated our brief stay at the Hotel Garcas. It is very cheap (48 euros for two), and excellent value for the money. We chose it for its proximity to the airport as we had an early flight, and were delighted to find a bus stop outside the hotel. We took the first bus – at 6.30 am, and paid... More

This hotel is located less than 5 minutes from the airport and 10-15 minutes from Santiago city center, with easy access to the highways. The friendliness of everyone from the receptionists to housekeeping to restaurant, is the best part of the hotel. After a very stressful first day, the smile of the receptionist made us feel like family. The rooms... More
