San Francisco Hotel Monumento

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a beautifully restored and renovated monastery. Words cannot really describe it as you step back into history and into the beautiful, functional, modern comforts of a hotel, while historical detail is maintained. Make sure you peruse the entire hotel and visit it all - including meeting rooms, etc. It's just spectacular and unforgettable especially after walking the Camino. Location is also great - just steps away from the cathedral.

This hotel is a mark of excellence on its own. An unexpected mix of modern and ancient, humble peace and languid luxury. We loved it. The rooms were spacious and unassuming, all the while luxurious and well air conditioned. Eating in the Nunnery restaurant was awesome and truly unique. Breakfasts were superb and the day waiters went out of their way to make our stay easy and relaxing. The kitchen even rang up a last minute special request for a birthday cake, which was beautiful and delicious. What a wonderful stay.

This hotel is built in a former convent, and the renovations are such that the atmosphere of an old building is preserved. Most of the stone walls, for example, are still there. The rooms are very comfortable with large bathrooms and good amenities. And the breakfast was first rate.

This is a really cool place to stay in Santiago, especially if you have just finished the Camino. The location is very close to the Cathedral. It's In an old monastery and the room are very nice and comfortable. The price was affordable given the location. Highly recommend.

A good alternative to the (frequently overcrowded) Parador de los Reyes. Very friendly staff, modernisation of this antique building very well done, discrete but effective. The hotel-bar is not very attractive and cozy, just a part of the breakfast-room/cafetaria. Rooms are large and bedding comfortable. Location excellent, just behind the parador, at 300m. from Plaza d'Obradoiro. A little difficult to find, signs are lacking and many restricted areas for cars. All in all a very pleasant stay.

This was a truly lovely room and lovely property. Our room was very spacious, especially for Europe but even by American standards. A very nice, large bed (which was much too hard for us), large bathroom, huge closet, a very stylish couch and chairs, beautiful wood floors and several antique dressers and a desk. My favorite feature of the room was the multitude of skylights. They opened to allow fresh air in and we fell asleep looking at the stars. There are shades on them if you choose to close them. The bathroom has both a shower and a jetted tub. It was a luxurious room. Also, the restaurant was amazing. We had lunch there and had the most tasty roasted cauliflower, a scrumptious manicotti with both red and white sauce, and a nice pudding for dessert. The waitstaff spoke perfect English and were sheer perfection in how they conducted themselves and served us. I loved this place. ❤️

Truly a five-star hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, staff were very professional. It is very centrally located within a short distance from the Cathedral. When we were catching an early 6am train, the front desk arranged for a generous picnic breakfast to take away. Great service! We felt very spoilt. Thank you.

Hotel is beautiful, an old monastery. A very short walk to the cathedral and town center. Everything was wonderful, the staff, the room and the breakfast was incredible! Parking was provided could not ask for more.

Really appreciate this hotel as it is converted from a monastery. There are still 7 monks live there in a separate part of the building and requests clients to be silence there. Room is modern, clean and bed is comfortable. Great location, just behind the Cathedral, close enough to attractions but away from tourists. Peaceful place.

Beautifully restored as a hotel, ancient historic convent in a perfect location close to the catedral and old town. Very nice staff, large and well appointed rooms, excellent buffet breakfast. It has parking and an indoor swimming pool.
