My mom and I stayed 3 nights in the amazing hotel. It is very small but our room with very spacious. It is within walking distance to the Cathedral and located in a quite part of the Old City. The front desk person was very attentive. I would definitely stay here again whenever with return to Santiago.

A super comfortable hotel close to the city center. It was a short and easy walking distance to the cathedral and other city sites. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms were attractive and nicely decorated. It was a pleasure to sit in the lobby to enjoy drinks or read the hotel's art books. While the hotel...

This is a true gem. After walking the entire Camino and having to change nights with this hotel after having paid a non changeable non refundable fee, through email they graciously accommodated me. And when I arrived, one of the woman who corresponded with me was at reception and hugged me! The room is both classic and new. Stone walls...

This was our last hotel on the Camino Trail. It is a very quaint little hotel. The ladies at the front desk could not have been more helpful with suggestions for eating, shopping, sightseeing! We loved our stay here. It was just a short walk from the cathedral. Had a great dinner at Parador de Santiago that I would highly...

Modern hotel with very helpful staff on edge of old city. Easy 5-7 mins walk to centre but has the advantage of being out of central bustle. Loved Santiago and this lovely hotel was perfect base for our daily wanderings. Really recommend the Cathedral rooftop tour and the free English-speaking city tour which gave so much fascinating information and answered...

We stayed here at the end of our Camino. Wonderful place. Quiet yet near the historic sites. Very attentive and friendly staff. Rooms are beautiful and well decorated, and breakfast/coffee bar area was very comfortable. What a welcome place to stay after our trek!

This is a small intimate hotel - boutique type - situated off the main thoroughfares of Santiago. A haven for any Camino pellegrino who has just completed their journey and wants a touch of luxury. Modern in decor, relaxed in ambiance and quiet at night away from the late night/early hours liveliness of this famous city. Rooms are bright and...

We spent two nights at the Hotel Altair. Location is close to the old town attractions, but not too close therefore it is reasonably quiet. Hotel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable. The interior has been remodeled nicely with wood floors, wood beams, and stone. Only downfall was the A/C was a little weak in our room, but...
