We only stayed one night in this newly renovated, sleek, modern-looking, and air-conditioned hotel. It was in a great location and the room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was fine. We thought the hair dryer was broken, but the desk staff patiently explained that we needed to hold down a button, then it worked fine. Doh! A bonus was that our room gave us a distant view of the Cidade da Cultura, a controversial urban project on a hill outside the city. A good value lodging.

Very small room - nowhere to store any suitcase larger than a carry-on bag, other than the floor. There was only one power point in the entire room (which we could find), and that was beside the bed. Very large, inappropriate chair in front of "desk", which was a very bad idea.... The hotel is in a great location, and the rooms are very quiet. The bed was comfortable.

This is a great hotel for a few nights in Santiago de Compostela. The room was very clean and bright and quite spacious. It was within easy walking distance of the Cathedral and other sights of the city. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. My travelling companion made use of the fitness room. The one down side was that there were not a lot of restaurants in the immediate vicinity but certainly lots in easy walking distance.

Good location ten minutes walk from Cathedral. Clean, modern, friendly staff, good quality and good value breakfast. Quiet rooms available. Comfortable beds and good linen. Excellent air conditioning. Many good restaurants nearby with Rua Franco offering a wide choice

Horrible. Could not even recommend restaurant. Treated us like the dirt on the shoes. I have enjoyed all of Spain. But this hotel was the worst! If you can avoid this hotel, do. Worst treatment in Spain.

I stayed in this hotel for one night last week. My room was clean and spacious, with good wi-fi access. It has a good location close to the central business section, many restaurants, and beautiful Alameda Park. The hotel overall is very clean and efficient with attentive and knowledge staff. I had a very good stay.

The hotel was super helpful and friendly. The room was neat and clean and modern. I felt very safe as well. I would absolutely stay here again. I stayed 2 nights and slept very well. It was also at a convenient location near the airport.

We only stayed one night at Hotel Gelmirez on our pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. It was not far from the cathedral and the rooms were modern and nice. The closet was tiny and our room was dim (light bulb out). The buffet dinner was very good with a variety of local dishes. Overall, a very nice stay.

My father and I stayed here for one night after finishing our Camino de Santiago and before heading to Paris. We came to the hotel from a prior albergue and the staff were very kind about letting us drop our luggage off early before our room was ready so we could head to the Cathedral to take a tour. We came back to the hotel after our tour and got into our room early, and we really enjoyed it! The hotel bathroom was very clean, and while the shower was a little odd looking, it functioned very well. My dad and I appreciated that we'd been given two twin beds rather than one big one, and the view from the room was also very nice. When we left the next morning, the staff was speedy in getting us checked out and called us a cab while letting us know the approximate cost of the ride. They were very efficient and knowledgeable, and my father and I really appreciated the effort they put in to giving us a great visit!

Excellent service, friendly desk, very good breakfast, clean, modern rooms, comfortable lobby, looks like scandinavian design, was there with a group who seemed satified, just blocks from the historic center
