A mixture of history, art and tradition, the Hotel Parador Santiago de Compostela forms a magnificent corner of the main square with the Cathedral in one of the most visited regional capitals in the world.
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.

Santiago de Compostela enjoys many religious festivals including the "Feria del Ganado" fiesta which is held during the month of May and lasts for ten days. This festival offers a particular insight into the "claimed" Celtic roots of Galicia and features a significant amount of Celtic folk music and dancing. Gastronomy is also very prominent during this particular festival with the various regional dishes of Galicia taking centre stage in the celebrations.

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

Stayed for 2 nights in July. Magnificent building in a wonderful location. However, service left a lot to be desired. When arriving in hotel restaurant, left waiting and unacknowledged while staff member remained checking his computer. One of the waiters who served us literally threw apiece of cutlery on the table. At breakfast, given a damaged cup(crack in same) which was replaced on request, without a word of apology. Staff at front of house 'grumpy' and not up to the standard that one would expect from a parador. Would suggest that standards need to be raised and staff given some training.

Quando ho parcheggiato nella piazza piu'importante di santiago davanti all'hotel e subito mi hanno preso le valigie e portato via l'auto ho capito che non sarebbe stato un posto come altri.Infatti non posso descrivere il resto.Posso solo dire che mia moglie(era il suo compleanno)ha detto:ho vissuto in un sogno fatto di storia e di armonia peccato che ho dovuto svegliarmi troppo presto.Gli ho promesso che ritorneremo.

this only one word to describe it: fantastic all. it's a dream. a thing that you must do in your life. staying in the interior of history in one of the most beautiful town in the world. the other things, very important in a hotel, like bed, accomodation, room, service, breackfast, are just perfect but you'll forget them because you'll be only thinking in the place you are. if i can i'll return, obviously

We stayed in the Parador at the end of September after the Camino de Santiago and where they let us leave our backpacks for the day until the room was ready (about 330p), we did not feel like it was a warm welcome nor great customer service when we arrived nor throughout the visit at the Parador. The hotel is absolutely stunning and the breakfast is great! However, given the caliber and significance of this hotel, I would recommend a change in concierge and the woman working in the morning/early afternoon shift at the front desk. They should be able to tell me (or at minimum) look up the hours for the pilgrim office in Finnisterre, but they just told me they didn't know and left at that, even after I pushed them to look it up. They never got back to me.
