Recent guest reviews

Arrived late in the evening but welcoming staff, room clean, and bed very comfortable a little cool but extra blankets (coldest winter they've had for a while) Breakfast self service lots of selection from cold meats, cheese, fruit, cereals to eggs. Beautiful hotel, peaceful and well worth the cost for such a unique hotel.

This hotel is more than unique and worth each penny. It’s an old monastery (or abbey?) which was turned into an amazing hotel including Bar, Restaurant and pool. Great service, good quality and lovely rooms. Very individual hotel, modern look in ancient building. Love it! My tip: enjoy a great time in this hotel while being in Santiago.

This is an amazing hotel. It is built inside a 17th century monastery and is attached to a working church. The hotel is completely modern, but they have maintained the historic charm and architecture. The rooms are open and spacious and extremely clean. The restaurant is amazing. Possibly the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed at.

I have stayed at this hotel four times and I am simply blown away again and again. I love the people who work there too, all of them, especially Jose Maria and Antonio! Hotel is beautiful, incredible history, the perfect location and spectacular courtyards. All around a beautiful reminder of Franciscans walking through the corridors of what was a monastery since the 13th century, though most of what stands today dates from the 18th century. The oldest section’s Gothic arches go back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Attached to the neoclassical San Francisco church (also with 13th-century). Part of the hotel is still a working monastery, and you’ll probably see some monks walking around.

The staff are helpful and friendly, there is a good variety for breakfast, it's a useful central location and the conversion from monastery to hotel has been done very well. The rooms are a good size and comfortable.

I can recommend this jewel whenever you are in Santiago de Compostela. The atmosphere goes with this historic city. The rooms are big and nice, very clean and it is located very close to the cathedral in the center.

What a treat. I highly recommend. Great room overlooking the historic area. Centrally located. Staff is fantastic! Room quite large. Pool and restaurant. Everything you would want from a hotel. A welcome treat after being on the Camino!

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.
