As one would expect from such an important destination for pilgrims, tourists and business people, there is no lack of hotels in Santiago de Compostela. Booking.com shows 89 hotels and AirBNB budget accommodation offers.

One of my favourites would be the Parador and even if you don’t intend to stay, please do enjoy the video

All the following hotels have been recommended by a friend who knows the area well.

Hotel As Artes

Pousadas De Compostela have four hotels in the city and another three nearby.

A couple of higher end places have opened in renovated buildings in the last 18 months.Impressive decor in both.

Hotel San Miguel Santiago – a 3* hotel that calls itself a “hotel gastronómico” Impressive views of the cathedral

Pazo de Altamira – another city centre hotel which seems to have an attention to detail.
