... got a taxi to the hostel and got a good night's sleep after the long journey and another long week at work for me. I lay on the bunk-bed listening to the sound of the rain bouncing off the terrace awning; every time I woke up it was still raining.
In the morning we had some breakfast and got our first view of the famous cathedral from the common room window. The owner of the hostel said to us he was going to tell it like it is: it rains ...

'Hola's!' were exchanged and they immediately invited us to join them, at which point John flippantly said 'only if you have wine' which of course any well prepared Spaniard does!! We were immediately clambering over stone walls and emptying packs of hoarded nuts, crackers, cheese chocolate etc to add to the repast. We were very temporarily halted in our enthusiasm when the issue of drinking vessels was ...

The albergues are few and far between and a group of about 20 of us were loosely bonding as we followed the route day by day. We crossed a mountain, hiked above the cloud line and then stumbled to sea level again, enduring the pain of an endless downhill. I ended up ...

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.
