“Great base to explore the city”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

I stayed here for three nights after making my way to Santiago on foot. My room was at the rear of the hotel and was quiet, clean and comfortable, with a balcony. Service ranged from fabulous (keen young receptionist helped me book onwards accommodation) to a little unresponsive, but the latter may have had more to do with language difficulties than an unwillingness to help. The hotel restaurant serves top-quality food and, as others have commented, the hotel itself is in a great spot, just outside the heart of the old city.

Very nicely appointed hotel with some really nice furniture and fittings. It is on a busy street close to the schools and there doesn't seem to be any internal noise baffling. At one stage in the middle of the night I thought a small herd of elephants had moved in upstairs and were shifting furniture. They seemed to come back again at 5am - but that was the laundry being dropped off.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor - at least then you'll be the herd of elephants!

Although a really great location- right in the centre of the city, we were disappointed with a number of aspects of the room itself. There was poor lighting, you couldn't mount the shower head as it was broken, the air con unit was very noisy and we couldn't figure out how to turn it off. Rooms are very pretty and so was the hotel generally. Taxi from the hotel to the airport cost 20 euros.

Unfortunately there was only one room left, and although it looked nice and had all it needed... it was just above the restaurant and by the breakfast room = noise!!
The location was ideal though, just oposite the Mercado de Abastos and walking distance from the Cathedral etc. They stamp your parking ticket for a discount.

The hotel is a nice surprise. Housed in a secular building, has charming and comfortable rooms. The price was 60 euros a night for two people including breakfast and free internet. The friendliness of the staff is remarkable! Restaurant with excellent wine.

By many standards we stayed in the best room in the house: 102 (I believe), on the corner with a great view of both the main drag and the side street. Being on the second and top floor, the windows were lower and more accessible than on the first floor. One could just hang out the window to watch the to and fro of the street. The thick stone walls within the room were very atmospheric. In the bedroom, large windows on 2 walls could be open wide for great cross ventilation and light. Another window set allowed more light and air into the large bathroom (though with a small stand-up shower).

Right across from the hotel was, to the south, access up a stairway to the market and then the old town. To the north a great café, Porta do Camiño, right on the pedestrian crossroads into the old town. The hotel had truly a fine location.

That’s all to the good. A little less to the good was the noise of the room:
- The party types singing praise to whatever at all hours
- The vehicle traffic again at all hours on the same road that provides entertainment
- The creaking tiles underfoot that appeared less than professionally installed

Had the room’s windows been better sound insulated, items 1 and 2 above would have been less an issue once one chose to close the windows. But as it was, the daytime entertainment came at a cost of a refreshing sleep. That all having been said, I’d rather have things to watch during the day, and would have chosen the same room again.

Also, the desk personnel could have been more welcoming. They were efficient and effective, more important to most.

We had a lovely room with terrace. Breakfast was sufficient, would be nicer if it was served later than 10:30. Great location, walking distance to the cathedral and city centre.
