This hotel has a beautiful garden to sit and rest and have a quiet drink. The garden has a water feature and lots of fruit trees making it a cool shady place to relax in. It's away from the hustle of the Cathedral in a quieter part of the city. We loved it and called in several times, it also... More

My wife and I have stayed at Costa Vella three times in 2010, 2012, and 2016. This place gets better and better. The rooms are clean, the staff great, and the old town location is fantastic. The garden cafe is a cool spot on a hot day. You will not find any place better in Santiago.

Nicely situated within the pedestrian-only zone of Santiago de Compostela, Hotel Costa Vella is a highly regarded accommodation - and with good reason. A small hotel, the Costa Vella combines lovely, comfortable accommodation with superior service to create a memorable stay in this equally memorable place of pilgrimage. Hotel Costa Vella is a most attractive accommodation. Approaching the hotel -... More

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
