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.

C'était vendredi matin. On lunch au restaurant de l'hotel après notre petite session magasinage et qui est-ce qu'on voit sur la terrasse exterieur? Nos copains de la veille, qui sont déjà en mode fête, quelques verres vides sur la table. Notre hotel étant juste en face du bureau d'acceuil des pélerins, on passera le reste de la journée à regarder …
Santiago This mornning Britta and I met in the carriage house of the Parador Hotel Dos Reis Catolicos at 8:20.

Four others joined us, and at 8:55, we were brought inside to the kitchen where we were given two trays, one with coffee and milk and the ...
... ink blue sky. Heralded by the planes taking off from the airport next to the path. As the day dawned the airport was just the plane noise. The path was still woodland with leaf fall under our boots. The sun starts to warm the day but only to 16C. We reached Monte de Gonzo, and the first glimpse of Santiago from the hill. We arrive at the outskirts around 11. My Albergue is on the Camino and quite close to the cathedral. It won an award for design excellence in renovation. ...
... for a bit. The priest begins by reading how many pilgrims had arrived from which countries (in Spanish, but I got the gist). Since I have not yet gotten my Compostela, I will not be in today's count, but will be in tomorrow's numbers. Wow. I looked around - so many pilgrims - here for so many reasons, but all drawn to the same location by the same calling - the way of St. James. It was incredibly moving. The church is under renovation and there are a lot ...
... didn't work, so had to take a bath. Now you need to realize I do not even take a bath in my own home cause I think it's gross... So had to scour the tub here and still wasn't very happy. This place wasn't cheap... 70 euros for all of us. Expectations were high. Stew and I arrived around 3:30, long day, started at 6:00am. Got a call around 4:30 from the girls, Alyssa was really sick and had been ...
