This is without doubt the prime location if you are a tourist or pilgrim in Santiago de Compostela. It faces the square that is also faced by the Cathedral where all of the pilgrims are headed as they travel through Spain.
The rooms are relatively spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The hotel interior is very quiet. This hotel was built by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabela (yes, the ones that funded Cristobol Columbo's voyages to the new world) to house pilgrims coming to Santiago in the 15th century. This Parador is rather expensive but ideally located.
The dining room is very dark and formal and the prices are atrocious. I found the breakfast to be adequate but not particularly notable.
On the many narrow streets on the other side of the plaza there are many small, very good restaurants.More
