Rúa Raiña, 11, Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain
"The hotel is in a good location in the heart of the old town and very close to the Cathedral, there are loads of restaurants and bars near by, the train station is an easy 15 minutes walk and 5 minutes to the airport bus stop. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, the room we had was over looking the garden square at the front, it was roomy with a separate sitting area, and there was a juliet balcony out onto the square, the bathroom was roomy with a shower, my complaints in this area would be that there was one shower head actually in the ceiling (strange) and another on the wall, which was fine but it didn’t move up and down and being a small person it was much too high, also the doors on the shower didn’t close properly, so not good. I also think that people who design hotel rooms never stay in any! There was 1 mirror in the room which was in the bathroom, which was inconvenient when my partner was shaving and I wanted to use the hair dryer and for makeup. The breakfast was free but it needed to be! We were there for 3 nights and I think the bread etc came out the next morning if it wasn’t eaten, all that said we had a pleasant stay and the rooms were clean. There was no safe in the room."
"We booked this hotel knowing that the old part of the city was traffic free however finding our way around even with the sat nav proved almost impossible and we resorted to hiring a taxi for me to follow to a car park near the hotel. The receptionist was friendly and the room was compact but comfortable with a small balcony overlooking the roof of the university and the cathedral. Breakfast was disappointing with warm water for the tea and poor coffee. The food available for breakfast was also limited but adequate. Value for money wise the hotel was reasonable at just over 100 Euros per night including breakfast. The bedroom consisted of a small double and a single bed - both comfortable but the double would hardly fit 2 adults. The soundproofing in the room was good and the bathroom adequate."
"The location was excellent and the rooms were fine. There were a couple of downsides for us. Breakfast wasn’t available until 8.30am, which was too late for us to have to make it to the airport on time for our flights, and there was no alternative provided. 8.30am is quite late for start of breakfast option. Also, there 2 entrances to the hotel, front and back of the building. The lift only goes one side and so it can be difficult to get luggage up and downstairs to the reception area if you arrive or leave by taxi, as taxis only have access on one side, (the other side to the lift). The location compensates much of the downsides however. "
