We stopped here on a tour group for lunch. We went on a brief tour of the hotel. The hotel is beautiful. Would love to come back and stay here. We had lunch here. We had a typical Spainish lunch. We were served four courses of very yummy food. Service was great, food was exceptional. The room we ate in... More

This Paradore is exceptional in it's elegant restoration and it's quality of furnishings. The rooms are comfortable and modern. The common areas are extensive and beautiful. The location is just steps from the cathedral but extremely quiet inside. The breakfast is a large buffet of great variety. The overall experience is one of highest quality and singular historical interest. It's... More

So much history in the hotel which overlooks the square where all pilgrimages end. The cathedral also overlooks the square. The hotel will arrange a tours guide which is well worth the money and is not expensive. We had one guide for four of us. Outstanding. The guide overran her time by 50%. So much to see. The hotel is... More

I won't repeat what everyone else has said, except to say it's an experience not to be missed--an experience of a lifetime. What made our stay even more exceptional as we were there on a Friday night when the botafumeiro swings incense at high speed through the Cathedral of Santiago and only occurs once a week, on a Friday at...

They were taken away after we had booked in to our hotel commotion over. WOW What a place... More

We chose this Parador because of its location and reputation. It was remarkable and beautiful. Even better than we had thought. There was nothing to complain about. This is expensive, but trust us, it is worth every cent.

Look no further for sleeping or eating accommodations. This parador is exceptionally located - right across the square from the church - its staff is friendly and patient, the rooms modest and of medium size, comfortable, functional and sparkling clean. It's hard to leave the hotel because it is so beautiful, but you must so you can marvel at the... More

I was attracted by its elegant architecture and at first I thought it was some sort of museum. I went in and discovered that it is a hotel and there is a restaurant. The lobby staff are nice and tourist friendly.
