This is supposed to be the best hotel in Santiago. It is good and of course has the history to go with it. But it needs much more attention to detail. It seems a bit tired. The front desk staff have to deal with a lot of people but there customer service skills could good with improving. A smile occasionally... More

This historical site & place to stay was amazing, the rooms are large with very modern bathrooms. Walking distance to restaurants, Catherdal & museums. The breakfast included was Great. Don't forget to visit hotel store , had some amazing gifts to buy. Would highly recommend. Only stayed 2 nights but will definitely return some day.

Before going to Santiago I couldn't understand why this hotel was not Tripadvisor's no.1. Surely the history and location should make it one of the most unique places in the world to stay, and therefore one of the most enjoyable?? However, having spent three nights there, I now know why other hotels are rated higher. For all it's luxury, beauty,... More

If you want to be in the center of Santiago de Compostela, then this is a great place. Right next to the Cathedral in an impressive old building. The room itself was rather smallish with a very old (and not s comfortable bed). The bathroom was very modern and well equipped. In the hallways it smells like old carpets, but... More

If you decide to make the pilgrimage to this ancient city, this is the place to stay. The cathedral, restaurants and every other main attraction in the city is just a few steps away. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. Its like staying... More

If you are a history buff you must stay here on a trip to Santiago de Compostella. If you are a guest here you have free range to explore the entire hotel.. There is a self guided tour which is fascinating.. The breakfast was astounding.. Our room was rather on the small cramped side especially in regard to the amount... More

Well, not only the location actually although that is fantastic (in the main square a short distance from the cathedral and a 5 to 10 minute walk into the old town). The paradores are a group of high-class hotels usually found in old historic buildings that have been very sympathetically converted (as my wife said, " they let the stones... More

we stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a tour of "pilgrims&paradors" it was wonderful, we were amazed at the luxury and superb quality of the rooms, food and the situation of the parador. We could not have wished for more. The staff really deserve recognition they are so helpful and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Thank You all.

Having just completed the Camino (we did 250 km) we stayed at the Parador. Excellent situation as it is literally next door to the Cathedral, and fantastic food. Staff were very attentive. Highly recommend this five star hotel especially the great breakfast.
