We stayed here for two nights, exploring Santiago de Compostella. The hotel has a nice pool, so very relaxing when coming back from a hot day full of exploration. Breakfast was excellent as well! Hotel has a lot of steps, so be aware if you are not comfortable with.

We spent 4 days there at New Years and it was really top. Best place in historical Santiago de Compostela. Staff is very professional. Super-helpful without being intrusive. Beautiful historical building, very calm and relaxing.

After the nightmare I had at the Santiago parador on the New Year eve, I changed my hotel to the nearby San Francisco Hotel Monumento - another hotel in a historical building, but what a difference with its staff - they are way warmer than the staff at the Parador. More helpful, more friendly, more polite. The room is much... More

Stayed there for 4 nights with wife and 5-year-old son. Although the exterior is fabulous, room was rather poorly decorated. Still, the location is superb, 2 minutes on foot from the Cathedral of Santiago. Hotel offers parking. Hotel staff was friendly and willing to help.

What a perfect way to end a wonderful spiritual walk. The rooms perfect with stone walls, yet modern. Large sitting area on the floor. The only issue was we were told we were too loud in the bar and at our last meal they dimmed the lights 2 or 3 times. This was a group of 20 pilgrims, we were... More

If you're visiting Santiago especially if you're driving, this is where you want to stay. Free parking at the hotel, with about a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and restaurants in the historic district. This is a beautiful historic hotel; my advice is spend the extra few bucks they charge; you won't regret it.

San Franciso Hotel Monumento is a beautifully restored old convent into a hotel. Original walls and stones are still kept. Hallway, courtyard, restaurant and breakfast room are preserved and give such a sense of serenity. The service at the front desk is outstanding. The breakfast is good. The hotel is within short walking distance to the center of the old... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's a short stroll from the centre of the old town, has a swimming pool, and free car parking. The room was comfortable, and clean, wifi worked OK. Breakfast was served in the cafe and was acceptable.

The hotel is located in an old convent. The place is very beautiful and while is located in Santiago Downtown is very quiet. The room are clean and spacious, if something because they are modern they lack the charm of been with a more medieval atmosphere. Service is friendly. Parking is easy, you drop your luggage and they move the... More

The front desk staff was rather rude to my family while staying here. They basically argued with us about our arrangements since half of us were staying 2 nights and half of us were only staying one night. They tried to tell us we had to pay more to upgrade to a better room b/c both rooms were already taken.... More

Manuel F, Director de Recepción at San Francisco Hotel Monumento, responded to this review

Dear guest, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us and I'm sure the issue about the number of nights was a misunderstanding. We need to know how long each guest is staying in the hotel so we can allocate all guests in their rooms according to their wishes. As for the products we offer in the rooms, unfortunately... More
