This hotel has the aura of Santiago de Compostela's historic charm coupled with modern amenities in the room. My stay was very comfortable - the room was very clean and the shower pressure was good. Although the wifi signal can be weak at times in the hotel, this is to be expected in a UNESCO heritage site. In any event...

Location was probably the best for anyone wanting to explore the old town on foot: right next to the Cathedral, and on the same block as plenty of authentic little restaurants, bars, and shops. Room decoration was fantastic with nice rustic charm. Nice size room, very clean, warm feeling with nice toiletries. Service and staff were great. I love hotel...

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in pointing you best attractions around the city. And the location is the key factor, right around the corner from the cathedral, which puts you in the heart of...

This hotel is located just around the corner from the Cathedral and among the wonderful boutique shops in the old quarter of Santiago de Compostela.

The Hotel Rua Villar was a great place to stay after walking the Camino. A super location to people watch, to see the sights, to walk to restaurants and shopping and steps away from the cathedral. Very clean, comfortable room with air conditioning which was a nice feature for sleeping cool. Most of all I was impressed by the staff....

This a return visit for us. Last year, we walked the French Way and wanted to treat ourselves to a little luxury. This year, after completing the Camino Portuguese, we knew we had to go back to this beautiful intimate hotel right in the heart of the old city and a stone's throw from the Cathedral. The food and service...

The hotel is in incredible location and the staff is super friendly. The rooms are more than adequate, but the TV was quite small and had no English language channels. The free WiFi was great and the bathroom had a nice tub and excellent lighting.

The hotel is very central, just a few steps away from the cathedral. The building is old but the rooms quite modern, although a bit dark but that's just due to the old building. The staff was very nice and helpful. We'd stay there again.
