This is really the only place to stay in Santiago. Situated directly in the main square and housed in an old pilgrims' hostel it is stunning. Well appointed room and friendly very helpful staff. Despite what some other reviewers have said it is very easy to find from the airport However, there is no wheelchair access in to either of... More

The Hostal is exceptional: The location is excellent, the building reflects centuries of history, the rooms were nicely furnished, spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. However, and this is the little downside, they are obviously used to deal with “mass tourism” and you might feel this when checking in and out and in at the breakfast (although the quality... More

Because of its location it is the only place to stay, but it is not cheap. Finding the hotel with satnav was a breeze and the valet parking was very efficient. However our room overlooked an internal courtyard but because of the roof overhang was very dark and had little view from the window. Breakfast was excellent. We had dinner... More

This Parador could be excellent . . . if only the management and staff understood that functionality is not a substitute for hospitality. The hotel has an excellent location, and the building itself has a wonderful sense of history. Our room, a superior twin, was spacious, meticulously clean, had a very modern bathroom, and was well furnished. A previous reviewer... More

After our initial problem finding the Hotel (as we were on our motorbike) it was quite cool to drive up a road closed to the general public as we were staying at the Parador Dos Reis Catolicos. We checked in and a chap came and unloaded the bike and our luggage disappeared to our room on the fourth floor overlooking... More

Very poor breakfast for non-Spaniard....no muesli, poor croissant (state and tasteless). Rooms need updating. Heavy key and no card access Porter needs to be more helpful - face would crack if he smiled! Restrurant is excellect and had great dinner - pity the same standard an not be applied to breakfast. Location is 10 out of 10,

This parador is simply breathtaking - directly next to the cathedral, in the middle of everything, in a historical palace. The 5 stars are well deserved, rooms are beautiful, the restaurant is exquisite. It is not cheap, but worth every cent!

The city outside of the historic area is abysmal. Historic area trinket shops not bad considering the tourist pressure. Beware..... Tapas bars are a hygiene and food preservation nightmare. Local restaurants dated and unappealing. We would have died if not for the Parador as the oasis surrounded by mediocre local food and lodging. In the Parador review each and every... More
