TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rua Villar Santiago de Compostela
Very helpful staff, clean and super comfortable rooms, extremely close to the cathedral and to the restaurants of the old city, walking distance from the more modern shopping area. We were travelling with bicycles and they assigned us a secure space in the hotel to store them. Right in front of the Credentials office for pelgrims, met interesting guests. Would not recommend to dine at the hotel's restaurant, there are much better and tastier choices in the area. The breakfast was great.

Continue to walk in shade and sun along country roads, both new and old walled ones. Just so beautiful and as we get closer to Santiago, it kind of seems sad to finish. We have many conversations ...
... as the past few days. We knew it was approximately a 4 hour walk, and Joanna and I didn't want to stop...when you are getting all sloshy it is more comfortable to keep on going while all the wetness is warm, rather than sit and have a break and then have to start again... So Joanna and I went ahead while Amr and Jules had a coffee stop, and ...
... afternoon in a beautiful restaurant with wifi, where we had the most delicious salads of the entire trip. Satisfying, filling and healthy. It was fantastic. We stayed there for hours. It's only a pity we didn't charge our electronics too, because there are hardly any plugs in this building and the few that there are have been filled dangerously. There are, however, horse and donkey stables under the building if you wish to store your ride... After a ...
