This was my favourite place to stay on the Camino. To arrive in Santiago and be able to stay in a converted monastery is amazing. However the rooms are quite small as well as the bathrooms. Some rooms appear to be smaller than others. I didn't eat supper here because the menu each night, (I stayed for two nights followed by another night after returning from Muxia) was quite basic so I preferred to go into the old quarter and eat with other pilgrims some of the wonderful Tapas!
Breakfast was excellent with a buffet. A good selection to satisfy most tastes.
The reception staff were incredibly busy but helpful as well. I was glad to have some laundry done and returned in record time. The bar area was very pleasant but you couldn't get any snacks with your drink which was disappointing. There is a daily tour of the monastery and church. The location is opposite the Cathedral and it is also within walking distance of a large car park. There are some pilgrim rooms available on the top floor. They are an unmodernised version of the hotel bedrooms and cheaper. I would definitely stay here again if I got the chance as the staff and monastery were memorable.
