Hostal Dos Reis Catolicos - view

Also known as Hostal dos Reis Catolicos it was originally a Royal Hospital and dates back to 1499. It provided lodging and shelter for the numerous pilgrims making their way to Santiago, an age old practice which continues to this day.

Considered to be the oldest hotel in the world it is also one of the most luxurious.

It has four cloisters of immense beauty, elegant reception rooms, spectacular bedrooms and a luxurious dining room.

The restaurants of the Parador® group hotels offer a wide and varied menu. As well as international cuisine they also offer a diabetic, vegetarian and gluten free option.

The restaurant at the Santiago de Compostela Hotel also specialises in Galician dishes and has revived ancient recipes and created its own. For example sea bass fillets baked in Iberian bacon and served with mint broad beans; scallops stuffed with sea urchin; sirloin steak in a cebreiro cheese sauce and for dessert, perhaps filloa crepes filled with apple compote. Interior - Hotel Parador de Santiago da Compostela

A stroll through Santiago is of great interest. Visit the Cathedral, the ”Plaza do Obradoiro” where the Parador® is located, the Gemirez and Rajoy Palaces, the Church of Santa Maria del Sar, the Monastery of San Marin Pinario, the Museum of Tapestries, the Church of Santa Maria Salome and the Museo do Pobo Galego.

The main religious festival is on July 25th when solemn Mass is celebrated with the National Offering to the Apostle Santiago (Saint James) who is buried in the Cathedral. The processions during Holy Week are also very impressive.

The Galicia region is located in North West Spain and is a very beautiful and interesting area to visit. Take a tour by car and see the cliffs of the Costa do Morte (Death Coast) which are very impressive as are the splendid views that you will encounter at Finisterre (Land‘s end). Drive around the Spanish Rias and visit the many delightful small fishing towns and villages. bedroom at Parador de Santiago da Compostela

Stay at your hotel was quite amusant and we enjoyed really. Bed and living room was excellent, large enough. Hotel location was excellent, next dor to cathedral. Restaurant was good, but international, we do prefer the tipical Spanish foods. We traveled through vineyard rias baixas and coast by car. It was so nice and recommendable. We would like to visit Santiago de Conposteira once in the life. Our dream came true We do appreciate your hotel and your staffs. Only one point to be improved is: Access way from the town to your hotel, difficult to find guidance plate

We stayed at this hotel before doing the Camino (on the premise that if we died on the hike, at least we would have experienced the hotel.) It was outstanding! The service was impeccable and our room was gorgeous. We had dinner at he the restaurant and it was magnificent. Our waiter was excellent and the food wonderful, especially the dessert! The public rooms are worth a visit, even if you are not staying here, but if you do stay, take the time to go through the entire hotel and read the historical plaques. The concierge was very helpful and gave a great advice on when to go and where to sit to see the Butafumeiro. The location could not be better and the hotel is a gem. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.

We arrived at The Parador after walking The Camino for 9 was our reward. The super comfortable beds, wonderful linens and the huge bathtub were the best that we could wish for. We lived the restaurant as well. We highly recommend it!!!!
