... a town called Melide. It is known for Octopus dishes (pulpo). There are a lot of establishments that specialise in it. We had a whole dish of octopus with oil and paprika. It was delicious.! For our dessert tonight we had whiskey icecream, which is pretty much just a shot of whiskey and icecream. It's nice to have some different and good food. We have bumped into a couple more people that we have seen throughout ...
So today is my birthday and we decided to walk the same amount of km as years that I have turned. It turned out slightly more and it was tough. I think it may have been about 35 degrees as well. We walked in the dark for the first hour and a half in the forest with our head torches on. There were so many people on the track today, the most we have seen since the beginning. We had ...

It is too dark to see if any tears emerged, but there may have been one or two. And we made sure to assure him that there is a place for him to stay when he reaches North America in a year. We return to the albergue, chatting about our favorite memories of ...

However, the view from the top was absolutely magnificent and our path slowly snaked itself downwards from a dry, karoo-like landscape to luscious forested valleys. Our next days were spent cycling through little Spanish farms, where the farmers still herd their own cows and 70 year-old women would still work in their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Costa Vella Santiago de Compostela
Great location, great views, great city
Situated on the edge of the old town, in a perfect location for exploring the winding streets, many bars and restaurants, and shops.
Really friendly staff both in the hotel and attached bar. It was excellent to sit outside in the garden at the rear of the hotel and enjoy the excellent local wines. It gets really busy with locals at the weekends if nice weather.
We had a room overlooking the rear garden, it was a good size and excellent value for money.
Definately be back in this great city.
Staying at the Costa Vella Hotel last October turned out to be the best way to start my visit to the northern regions of Spain. The hotel's location is ideal for visiting the cathedral and its surroundings as well as other interesting places in the area. The glassed-in breakfast room and a lounge area overlook a beautiful garden below. Its small restaurant seems to attract hotel guests and locals alike. Since I arrived before the room was ready, I was treated to a cup of coffee and given information on places to visit, restaurants, etc. When I returned from my first walk, Robert had already taken my luggage to the room, which turned out to be small but clean and comfortable. However, the hotel by itself would not be the restful and charming place it is were it not for its staff. I have to thank Robert and Minia for their friendliness and willingness to help this first-time visitor to their city. Costa Vella is definitely a place to consider when visiting Santiago.
Fantastic hotel, although everything was new it was still charming, the staff were friendly, the location excellent, the recommendations in the booklet they lent were helpful, the room was always immaculately cleaned, the size was the perfect balance between spaciousness and cosiness and the price was excellent.
It started well as when we confirmed the exact location the girl at the info desk at the airport smiled and said 'beautiful hotel'. And it is - really pretty garden/bar well supported by locals at the weekend,very helpful and friendly staff and great value.
Another big plus is the guide written by the hotel in English recommending the local attractions,trips out of town and restaurants and bars 2 of which we tried and they were excellent.
We'll be back.......
Ok, but cramped
Was disappointed after all the good reviews I saw. It was an ok hotel, but the rooms were tiny. It was cheap at 46 euros for a single room, but in truth it was more like a converted closet. "cosy" I suppose is the marketing word... but even taking a peek at the double rooms, they too were small. first night I stayed in their new sister hotel, the Altair. Just across the road, slightly more expensive (a single was about 60 euros). but breakfast was included (its not at Costa Vella) and the rooms were huge. very new, well decorated in a minimalist style, and I would suggest better value for money than Costa Vella.
Excellent hotel - friendly staff - lovely enclosed garden.
Excellent hotel - friendly staff - lovely enclosed garden.
reasonably priced & a short walk to the centre.
reasonably priced garage.
stop near the hotel to unload before parking.
there is no lift so avoid the attic rooms (which have only windows in the roof).
to be recommended.
A very nice family-run hotel. Beautiful, enclosed balconies (an architectural tradition in Galicia) turn an otherwise ordinary hotel room into a pleasure. Nice back garden, where you can eat breakfast or just sit around and enjoy life. Quite reasonably priced-- a bargain in fact. We enjoyed staying here as much as we enjoyed our night at the far more expensive Parador, which is just a block away. Less luxury but great atmosphere.
A highlight of our trip.
A highlight of our trip to Santiago De Compostela was our stay at the Hotel Costa Vella. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. Josť, Ava, Robert, Rita, and all the staff were very helpful and attentive. As American travelers, communication was not a problem. They were very patient with our attempts to speak Spanish and their English was very good. The terrace was beautifully landscaped and provided a peaceful spot to relax. Our room was very well maintained and reasonably priced.
We highly recommend staying at the Hotel Costa Vella.
Every aspect was enjoyable
Enjoyed our stay immensley as staff courtesy was second to none and the location entices residents to a variety of strolls through the various (and interesting) shopping malls down towards the maiin square and cathedral. We usually stay in Spanish Paradores but our next visit to Santiago will definately include a couple of nights at the Costa Vella.
Hotel in heaven
The best location. Kindly staff. Charming place...what a lovely garden in the stone city. And good value for money.
