Lovely little hideaway right in the Old City. Very friendly, pretty, clean, inexpensive. I stayed at the Parador the night before to celebrate finishing the Camino and I preferred Hotel Alda😃 am staying there again before leaving Spain.

Loved our stay here. Great spot at the end of the Camino and as a jumping-off-point for exploring Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, and Finisterre. Staff was adequate, room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Great central old-city location convenient for excellent dining in the neighborhood.

Wonderful small boutique "hostel" excellent location, nice bathrooms (we got first floor handicap, dont know why) The noise though while sleeping was kind of intense. The street under our window was very loud from 1 am to 5 am or so. Kind of annoying. But aside from that excellent

Exactly what you pay for - good basic hotel! This is very no frills and can be noisy at times in rooms at the back but very good value. Staff not very helpful in checking out. Manager seems to not deal with customers at all and when the receptionist is busy just leaves customers to wait.

The hotel is good. The employees are, almost all, nice. The organization at the front desk is a bit of a problem. The door of the bathroom didn't close. The Wi-Fi works very unstable. The first day I stayed the price of the room was one, and after,i wanted to stay an extra day. The price was different. But boy...

This hotel is well situated, and during the night is a litlle bit noisy. The double is very big and the fourniture very nice and comfortable. There is a restaurant with a good quality although the breakfast has a poor variety.

Arrived after reception had closed and 10 minutes before email with entry instructions arrived, but once in.. Lovely hotel. Simple clean room comfy bed. Nice bathroom. Great bar with very eclectic dj!.great price for a great hotel. Super location. Highly recommended. (The receptionist could be a little more cheerful and helpful.. but that's the only slightly negative)
