This was our last stop on a tour of Northern Spain and we stayed 2 nights. The room was excellent for a 3 star rating - we had a very comfortable bed, and a good sized bathroom with a big shower cubicle and a soft close toilet seat!!! Truly the sign of a quality hotel for me! The hotel was... More

I came here for drinks every second night over 2 weeks with other volunteers from the Pilgrims office, unfortunately our accommodation was pre booked so we could't stay, we found these truly beautiful gardens so quite and relaxing after a hard day. It was only a short walk from the cathedral and the staff were always very helpful. Rosalie This... More

Hotel Costa Vella is a beautiful newly renovated hotel with a gorgeous garden. The owner Roberto is gregarious, hard-working and helpful. He gave us very useful advice for touring the area. The hotel is near the cathedral and lots of great restaurants. Breakfast in the serene garden is a perfect start to the day in Santiago.

This review is very much overdue as I stayed there last year, but I'm sure this hotel is just as fabulous as it was then. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful, charming hotel, from the lovely, attentive staff, to the gorgeous rooms or the garden oasis at the back! I had arrived pretty hot and sweaty and... More

A charming hotel in an excellent location. Staff were exceeding helpful throughout our stay. The garden/bar is beautiful. The only downside is that the garden bar is popular with non residents and can be noisy if your room is at the back of the hotel. Quite difficult at times to get a table. Would stay here again. Thank you.

Everything mentioned on other reviews is true. From my first email planning our stay, the staff was SO helpful! Our room faced the garden - very special setting. Roberto and all the other staff made our stay exceptional. They even do a bag of laundry for 10 Euro. You will be very lucky to stay here.

After the "camino" we stayed here just to rest. The beds are very comfortable, tidy and clean the stuff is professional and the food is good. I wish I had more time to spend in the town and in this hotel. Stay here, relax and think where to go next!

The excellent reviews on Trip Advisor led us to this hotel. The policy of not requiring any advance payment to guarantee the reservation set the tone for the rest of the visit. The service could not have been better. From offering suggestions on what to see, to making reservations, to helping with airline ticketing, to arranging transportation, there is a... More

I can't praise the Costa Vella highly enough. Booking (direct with the hotel by email) was fast and easy and I was greeted at my arrival like a long lost friend. The staff are exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. My room was on the second floor with a lovely view of the street (fortunately not too noisy at... More
