Casas Reais
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2011

Casa Reais is very easy to overlook only because its exterior is simple and unassuming, and the sign is small. HOWEVER...the Casa Reais is chic, accommodating, and affordable for what it offers...in general, a GREAT FIND!!!

This boutique hotel is smallish/intimate, around four floors, with stairs and an elevator for convenience. Upon entering you are immediately greeted by one of the two very nice women who manage the hotel. The entrance area is small, and there is no lounge to hangout in, but we didn't see this as a problem as our room and its amenities more
than made up for that.

The room was so well decorated and the exposed stone walls and natural wood doors are so beautiful. I don't know who decorated this place but he/she did a great job. The lighting is indirect and soft...the beds are comfortable. The bathroom in dark tiles is very hip, and includes hairdryer, towel heater, and a great shower head.

The hotel is RIGHT on the Camino de Santiago, and is located just as you enter the old town. It has a very good tapas bar, and is steps away from an ATM and a very reasonable bakery. The bottled water and the spinach empanadas at the bakery are as cheap as they come in that city.

Our room was on a corner so we had enclosed balconies on two sides which made it fun to watch people passing below. We were able to see pilgrims arriving to Santiago with the excitement and reverence on their faces of having finally arrived.

At first my sister and I were disappointed that this hotel does not have a computer that we could use to check train and bus schedules, however, the managers were so gracious to research everything for us and make reservations for us online. I can't stress enough how much this helped make our stay so positive!

I want to mention also that from this location you can walk to the nearby bus stop and easily catch a bus to the bus or train stations...MUCH CHEAPER than taking a taxi.

We spent one night in Casa Reais on our way through Santiago de Compostela. The hotel is a small but very modern pension, located on the edge of the old town. It is ideally situated, close to the Cathedral and the all the major historic sights of Santiago (5-10 mins walk).

Our room was the Sherezade room, smallish but nicely decorated with a balcony, aircon, LCD tv and a fridge. The balcony overlooks the Rua de Casas Reais but with the windows and shutters closed there is no noise whatsoever! The bed was very comfy and there is free WiFi throughout the hotel.

We didn't have breakfast but a small cafe bar is attached to the hotel and I believe you can have breakfast there.

There is no on site parking but the hotel offers a discounted rate (€9 per night) at the nearest public carpark (beside museum of contemporary art, about 300yds away).

I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Compostela.

What an excellent hotel! 11 rooms, very confortable, very quiet (pedestrian street) and located in one of the entries of Santiago old quarter. Very good value for money. I highly recommend it.
