“Super stay in Santiago!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

For anyone wanting to make a pilgrimage, or just to have a few days in this marvellous little city, the Hotel Bonaval is recommended. Situated only 300 meters from the old town and cathedral, it is an easy walk to and from the fine buildings. The hotel itself is reasonably quiet with super staff who are friendly and helpful. Buffet style breakfast is well presented and healthy. All in all, a very happy stay.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms recommended for the view of the cathedral

We had a nice room which overlooked the town and the cathedral and was lovely and quiet. It is an easy walk to the old town, but being just outside it means it's easier for the taxi to pick you up for the airport. Reception booked the taxi and packed us a breakfast since we were leaving so early and was very helpful and friendly all round. Can definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Bonaval twice in June 2012 after completing the Camino de Santiago. Great location near the cathedral. The management team were as good as it gets. They even packed us a breakfast to take with us to the airport as we left before dawn to catch an early flight. Buffet style breakfast bar was beautifully laid out. Javier at the front desk was caring, very helpful and spoke great english.

Room Tip: It is a small hotel so call ahead to ensure getting a room.

This is a nice place within two blocks of the old city. The staff is helpful and willing to go the extra mile to assist guests. The breakfast in the morning works well. The rooms are comfortable but since the hotel is on a cobblestone street it can be a little noisy but this shouldn't be seen as a dealbreaker since the positives far outweigh an annoyance that doesn't intrude on your overall experience. Great mattresses so you do sleep well. Lots of restaurants within a two blocks. Saturday market is only three blocks away. Reasonable pricing. Parking is available at the museum lot about two blocks away.

We were lucky with our room as we looked out over the old city and it was very spacious Would certainly stay again without question and highly recommend. Excellent value for money

Enjoyed two nights at this hotel. It is an historic building that has been updated as a hotel. Our room was apparently a former kitchen with a stone fireplace and stone sink.

Just a couple of blocks from the old town. There is a parking garage just maybe a block away near the museum. There is a cemetery across the street and the receptionist said that it was safe to park there (for free) but ultimately we went with the garage. Parking is difficult in Santiago due to all the hills. I expect that the bus drivers there retire after just two years.

The included breakfast was pretty good.

A block away down the hill is a fantastic restaurant, O Dezaseis, one of our favorites in Spain.

Kind of expensive for Santiago but it does have A/C which few hotels do.
