This hotel is simply superb. I can find no other adjective to better describe this wonderful hotel. What do I like: the design of the rooms is spectacular with a perfect mix of stone walls, woodwork, wood furniture, modern and functional bathrooms, the quality of the linen and towels, the amenities, and simply everything. The hotel is perfectly located, right...

At first, the outside appearance was discouraging, but, once inside it was nicely appointed and a relaxed yet efficient atmosphere. A nice room with a very attentive staff. Breakfast was great. This hotel is a real value for the price.

As suggested by Hotel Costa Vella, we moved to this hotel, where the room was larger and there was an elevator. A small but classy hotel with 11 rooms with very helpful receptionists. The breakfast was nicely presented and the expresso coffee was delicious!

My husband and I loved our three night stay at the Altair Hotel. It was perfectly situated in old town with a short walk to the Cathedral and the sights. The manager, Diana, did everything in her power to make sure that our trip was perfect! She gave us detailed information on where to park our car, to eat, and...

My mom and I stayed 3 nights in the amazing hotel. It is very small but our room with very spacious. It is within walking distance to the Cathedral and located in a quite part of the Old City. The front desk person was very attentive. I would definitely stay here again whenever with return to Santiago.

A super comfortable hotel close to the city center. It was a short and easy walking distance to the cathedral and other city sites. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms were attractive and nicely decorated. It was a pleasure to sit in the lobby to enjoy drinks or read the hotel's art books. While the hotel...

This is a true gem. After walking the entire Camino and having to change nights with this hotel after having paid a non changeable non refundable fee, through email they graciously accommodated me. And when I arrived, one of the woman who corresponded with me was at reception and hugged me! The room is both classic and new. Stone walls...
