    The AC did not work. This was reported to reception on the second morning of our stay, and yet, on our return, nothing had changed. We endured a second night of being uncomfortably warm. Daytime temps were between 29 and 31 degrees, which made AC a must, not a luxury. Breakfast room staff were abrupt to the point of being rude, in great contrast to the evening bar staff. Reception staff, (we encountered no less than 3 of them) were not especially helpful and in the case if the non working AC, which was reported to them, useless. On the morning of departure,when paying the bill, the receptionist informed me that I to also pay for our breakfasts. Thankfully, i was able to show her my confirmation documentation, which clearly stated that our breakfasts were already included in the rate paid. This matter took a little time to resolve, but no apology was made. Unsatisfactory.

    Very friendly and polite housekeeping staff who always seemed very busy and hardworking. The room was spotless and they observed the Do Not Disturb sign when it was on our door. The bar staff were also most helpful and kind. We enjoyed some drinks and snacks, which were excellent and very good value.

    Rooms were clean and laundry spotless but the décor is a bit dated this lets the hotel down. If the décor was improved and brought more up to date ie new paint colour this simple change would improve the over all appearance. The bathroom was very dated with old style tiles. Ventilation needs improving in bathroom.

    Staff were friendly and polite across the board from receptionists, bar staff , restaurant, cleaners. Beds were comfortable sheets were spotless and rooms were clean and well aired each day. Very reasonable prices on drinks in hotel bar. Though the hotel is on the out skirts of the city there is Access to Santiago by public transport directly outside hotel, 10 minute spin and cost only 1 euro.

    Not recommending this hotel to solo travellers

    • Stayed 1 night

    The hotel looked different on the pictures. The room was old, not renovated, you could hear your neighbours all the night. The glasses in the windows were shaking/trembling as the hotel is close to the high road. Somebody tried to break into my room in the night. I guess that somebody just has mistaken rooms, but it was very scary as I was travelling solo. I would not recommend this hotel.

    In general, the hotel was quite clean and staff very nice. The most positive thing about the hotel is close to the airport, however, I was told by the staff that a bus to the airport stops next to the hotel which was not true (it stops 1km up the hill from the hotel to San Marcos).

    - Actually for me it was fine but for those who are going to visit the city, the location may not be the best. Though, public transport to the city is easily available - the bus stop is right at the front of the hotel.

    - Very close to the airport. That was the reason why I booked the hotel. - Restaurant appeared better that expected (expected because I treated the hotel as the majority of hotel located close to airports). Friendly staff, good Galician dishes and local wine.

    Overrated, the night front desk staff was NOT rude but definitely NOT for a "3 star" hotel, same as the waiter at the restaurant, not good professionalism. Beds and pillows were not comfortable, old dated decor. Food at restaurant not good at all! Parking was free BUT outside without security.

    The price was cheap for the city, free parking and rooms were big.

    Hotel was clean and comfortable with a nice bar for drinks and snacks. Also a restaurant for dinner. Nice breakfast. The hotel is beside a bus stop and buses run every 20 minutes into Santiago de Compostella, great for visiting without the hassle of parking. Plus it lets you have a glass of wine with great tapas.
