Nice rooms, delicious breakfast and you are inside a shopping mall so the supermarket is nearby. Great to relax after a day of traveling. You have to take a taxi or drive you own car to come over to the city center.

Ok hotel if you are tired after completing the Camino although quite a bit out from the city. Taxis varied in price from 5-7 euros. I hoped it would be nice being located in shopping mall but there are very few shops of interest although supermarket handy as e didn't have breakfast in hotel. Rooms can be noisy with showers/running...

Situated in a shopping mall, this is a comfortable hotel with good bedrooms, friendly staff and a secure car park. The complex is not fully let with a lot of empty units and no decent restaurants. However the town is a short bus ride away, the stop is right outside the door.

I am going to be honest with you, my review is biased. My mother and I stay here every year at the end of the Camino, therefore after 5/6 nights in Alburgues this feels like absolute luxury. I love it. The staff are friendly, the location is a bit random above a shopping centre - but the shop's are handy...

The hotel is in a multi-purpose development. Staff were pleasant, hotel room was spacious and comfortable, buffet breakfast was fine. The only things lacking was coffee/tea making facilities and an actual lounge area to sit in if one wants to get out of one's room. Shame. I am finding Spanish cities/towns very difficult to navigate as nothing is well signed....

Situated in a shopping mall and away from confusion. Next to Parks and public transport. The hotel is accessible by lift and the staff is pretty polite. It has all a tourist would want and you can park your car in their garage or use the Public Transport (Bus 11). Breakfast is neat and proper.

the hotel is part of a large shopping centre a walk from the centre of Santiago (not a short stroll). whilst we were there it was raining quite a bit (usual in Galicia) but there were several excellent cafes and restaurants in the shopping centre. The hotel had friendly staff and very helpful. You could have breakfast in the hotel...

This hotel by its name gives the impression it is in centre of city, nothing could be further from the truth, it is a good 15 minute (average) walk from cathedral area of city. The name seems to derive from its location in the centre of an outlying shopping centre, the only plus factor location wise is that there is...

Prices are low for a reason. If you expect a 4 star hotel do not go there it's a hotel furnished in the early 90s with a 14" tube TV on the wall and a long ONE pillow on the family bed!!! More like a hostel, with very helpful staff it does the job for the money.

If you have plenty time to spare at the end of a long journey, a small car, spare fuel in your tank, natural luck and a serious love of puzzles then this hotel is the ideal place for you. It is certainly not the kind of place that you would wish to visit for the first time, second time ok...
