This hotel is in a superb position to see all the sights of the old city and be right amongst the action. The rooms are large and tastefully furnished with antiques or copies. The ambience of the hotel really brings the history of the building alive. It is certainly a great place to stay at the end of your journey to Santiago De Compostela.
However our stay was marred by an unsatisfactory incident at the Terrace cafe. An order of bacon,egg and cheese sandwich came with the cheese still encased in its plastic wrapper. The waitress didn't seemed perturbed at all when shown and simply removed the plate and brought back another sandwich. No apology offered! The replacement came without implements which had to be requested and we were billed for the sandwich. Not what you would expect of staff, especially one working in an establishment of this high a standard, nor plastic wrapped cheese. We would recommend NOT eating at this venue.
