This is a modern businessmen hotel with all the comforts and amenities that the traveler needs, a very efficient and competent hotel with a nice restaurant, good food, well served and presented.Excellent breakfast table at what seems to be the standard price for buffet breakfast €12-15. I only have a comment being that I was on a pilgrimage to Santiago, the hotel is a little away from the CAmino, about a 20-30 minutes walk from the Templars Castle and pilgrims albergue. This is not a problem and gives the visitor a chance to walk through a modern vibrant city in Northern Spain.

We wound through some suburbs to ...
... rise of 450 meters. We then had a descent back down to roughly 600 meters where we then began a gradual climb to 705m over the next 14 km. after that we began a very steep climb over the next 8 km until we reached O'Cebreiro at 1,300m. The highest point on the Camino. It was a thoroughly challenging and exhausting walk and although dosed on iBoprufen, the heel was making its dissatisfaction known toward the end. Despite the exhaustion....and I can hardly believe I ...
... comes over and says something in Spanish about giving us a shot of some sort of moonshine. As a non drinker I wasn't keen on it but he brought one back for me anyway. Now, for us a shot comes in a tiny glass which you can finish in one gulp, but here they give you a big glass of this black liquid that could be confused for oil. Anyway, I was in a pickle because it's rude not to eat or drink what they give you. It took me 3 goes, a lot of head shaking ...
... brain goes immediately into sleep mode. Zzzzzzz Oh....todays Inspirational piece was...... "Faith says...I believe....not...I understand. When one sees with the eyes of faith, NOTHING is only what it seems to be. One sees as God sees, even ourselves" Leo. P. rock. S.J. Thank you Maureen Miller for this one. This piece seemed really applicable at Cruz de Ferro today as pilgrims from all over the world placed little stones of hope and prayer at the foot of this ...
