Wandering around this historic property is part of the enchantment of staying here. The antiques, art work, and comfortable furniture invite you to linger. Reading about the era when this was a hospital engage you further. While the front desk and bar staff may not be the most personable (many seem to have been with the property since the original...

This was my 5th stay at this parador. Everything is excellent! It is not only that you are staying at a hotel, but it IS the building and the experience of staying there! You have been transformed to the 15th century, but with all of the modern amenities! You must experience this parador! Staff are competent, friendly, and always helpful!...

Great way to end the Camino. Our room on the 4th floor was a lovely retreat with old world Spanish charm that overlooked one of the courtyards. A great breakfast buffet was included. Dinner in the main dining room was wonderful; ordered the tasting menu. Don't forget to visit the areas exclusive to guests only: walk the entire 3rd floor...

We arrived very late at the Parador in Santiago de Compostela but the Parador at Leon had phoned ahead and we were able to have a hot meal at 10:30 pm! The Parador is a sumptuous, former hospital for pilgrims to the tomb of the saint. The city buzzes with pilgrims and tourists, buskers and souvenir shops. The cathedral is...

We arrived in Santiago de Compostela after a long week of backpacking. The Parador has the perfect location, right in the square next to the Cathedral. The hotel is amazing. No question it was the most fabulous hotel I have visited. Our room was on the main level with a king size four poster bed, a sitting area, amazing bathroom,...

The experience in staying at the oldest hotel in the world was like staying in a castle. History was retained but with modern comfort. It's a 5 star accommodation in the heart of the big square right beside the cathedral. Best location you can have in the old town. Walking to sights, restaurants and shops. But it may feel eerie...

Got an upgraded room, large with more than enough room, bathroom had been completely modernized, new fixtures, and spacious. I was fortunate to spend two nights here. Location across from the Cathedral made this so easy. The staff was very friendly in spite of the large amount of "traffic" (tourists, guests and pilgrims) coming in and out of the hotel....

We started our tour of Galicia, with a two night stay at this Parador and I could not have asked for a better start to our holiday. Everything about this place was fantastic, from the moment we pulled the car up out front and handed over the keys to the moment we left was just perfect and breathtaking. The hotel...

The Parador at Santiago offers much, but also is in need of refurbishing, especially the furnishings. That said, the bed was comfortable, and the marble bathroom was modern, spacious and well lighted. There was plenty of hot water and good quality toiletries. The buffet breakfast was delicious, and ample, with fresh fruits, in-house baked pastries and breads, eggs, meats, cheese,...
