I booked this hotel because it was walking distance from the famous cathedral, which I wanted to visit the following morning. Unfortunately, after driving from Santander we arrived in the dark and our car sat-nav did not recognise the street address. We drove in circles for 2 hours before I spotted the cathedral, parked illegally,and walked to the cathedral and...

Wonderful old monastery. There is a part of the building used for the 9 Franciscan monks that still live on the property. They started using this building as a hotel years ago to raise money for the poor and hungry. I was very happy that my room rate was going to support their charities and not going to big chain...

This hotel is in an old monastery and has been renovated beautifully. Location is excellent as right by Cathedral and in old part of Santiago. After walking through all the little alleys in the old town it was an easy return to the hotel. Service is excellent - definitely 4 star and we were finally warm. Very comfortable and luxurious...

Situated within 5 minutes walk of the cathedral this hotel has been built within a Franciscan convent & the architecture deserves a special mention. The staff were all very helpful & nothing was too much trouble. The room was excellent, with a large double bed - very comfortable. The bathroom had a bath & twin sinks and was exceptionally clean....

If it was once a convent, you certainly wouldn't know it now. It has been beautifully updated to a very special hotel without losing the original use. Staff were fabulous and so helpful. We had dinner here 1 night and we loved it. It is in a very convenient location; so close to the center square and cathedral.

This is a Franciscan convent, active today, we never saw the brothers though, we were told. Do tour facility is nice, walk around this peaceful hotel and go to the Church by the way. The hotel is HUGE, rooms are ok. Standard, did not try breakfast because I think is overprized and there are so many options at walking distance....

Perfect hotel with a bit of luxury when you have just finished the 500mile Camino de Santiago. Efficient and friendly staff on reception , any queries dealt with immediately. Large room, very clean and comforting. Most important - a lovely bog bath tub to relax and loosen the muscles. Very central especially for a solo female.

Excellent facilities, comfortable bed nice restaurant onsite and quiet. Excellent location near the cathedral and center without the noise received in the closest other hotel for similar pricing. Helpful staff, good water pressure in the shower and onsite heated pool and jacuzzi. Highly recommended!

Great location, a few steps from Praça do Obradoiro, and a very kind staff. Renovation of old Franciscan convent was very well succeeded and made with good taste. Free parking in the property was really useful. Only a tiny flaw that can easily be erased: sealing gasket of bathroom window needs to be improved. For the rest, absolutely no complaints.

Thank Emidio G
