“Lovely hotel and brilliant friendly staff”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This hotel is in a perfect location, the airport bus stop is just across the road and for 3 Euros per trip this saves a huge amount on cab fares. The hotel is just across the road from the beautiful old town, and is itself a lovely building. Rooms are large, clean, comfortable with good bathroom facilities. The breakfast buffet is very good with a large selection, the only criticism would be that the bacon, sausage and scrambled egg is often lukewarm - however the other items you can choose make up for this!
Staff are very friendly and helpful - I will look forward to returning to this hotel! Across the road is a lovely bar with helpful waiters.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms are equally as good

I stayed here as a treat on the last night of my Camino trip and it was well worth it. A Wonderful hotel in the old quarter of Santiago and a few minutes walk from the Cathedral. My room was large and airy with a very comfortable bed and a huge luxurious bathroom. The staff were all welcoming and friendly and the breakfast was the best one I have had in Spain! I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a touch of luxury at not too high a price.

At the price around 90€ in top season (august) you can get all you need visiting Santiago de Compostela. Hotel is located between old town and new town and on the train station side. Most of the crucial town attractions lays in the range of 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel.

Rooms are nice, clean, relatively big and with nice small balcony. AC works quiet and very good windows do not let outside noise to disturb you anyway.

Special thanks to the reception staff. They gave us 10 minutes to explain the map and location of main important object. Their restaurant recommendation was also valuable.

Breakfast is very cheap - 5€ per person and worth the price.

On and on, highly recommended hotel in the center of Santiago.

5 of us stayed for 1 night here last week and was exactly what we needed. Location is superb, right on the edge of the old town and next to the car park where we parked. Rooms were spacious, air-conditioned with nice bathrooms and good wi-fi. Breakfast was simple but reasonable (make sure you book the €5 breakfast at reception beforehand).
Above all though was the service. We didn't have anywhere to stay for the next leg of our trip. However, the receptionist spent around an hour for us ringing round hotels in the Orense area to find us a decent place to stay the next night. Not sure what her name was, but she could not have been more helpful.

It's a very nice hotel, staff is very friendly. the location is very good, just outside the old town, just crossing the road and you are in the old town streets. The rooms are big and nicely decorated. Bathrooms big as well. the breakfast was ok, the quality wasn't too good.

The hotel is located right on the edge of the old town and about 300 meters from the Cathedral. It is also right next to the plaza from where buses to Santiago Airport depart which we utilised when leaving. The hotel reception was excellent providing plenty of information when requested. They also helped by printing off our boarding passes which we received online via email.
We had the Buffet Breakfast included with our stay and it was very extensive offering plenty of variety from bacon and eggs, to fresh fruit, yogurts, cold hams and cheese, cakes and croissants.
We had a double room which came with a separate bathroom. There was also a safe for valuables and a bar fridge. The room was excellent and provided us with else try of room. We even had a balcony that we could sit on overlooking the plaza.
Great Hotel, Highly Recommended.
