We are noticing that hotel pricing seems pretty low compared to previous years. In speaking with hoteliers, they have all expressed the difficulty that have had over the past year and many are just hanging on at this point. That said, their prices rival that of alberques in many places. A private room with bath for 2 in Porto near the cathedral - €58. A private room with bath for 2 in Vila do Conde across the street from the boat harbor - €38. A private room with bath for 2 on the main street in Esposende - €32. These have all been excellent locations, right on the Camino, sparkling clean and well staffed. I think these prices will rise as customers return but for now it is definitely a renters market. Please consider leaving a positive review for any place that deserves it. That helps us all.

I was thinking that when I booked my spots on Booking.com. The prices were very good for what you get. I didn't have anything to compare to other than comparing to other countries in Europe that I have travelled to.

Camino Frances (2015, 2017, 2019) and plans for 2021 (Sept, Oct)
I cancelled our 2020 reservations in July and rebooked for 2021. We stayed in private rooms every night during our 2019 camino. When rebooking for Sept - Oct 2021 camino most of the places charged the same rate as 2019, and the 2021 rates were mostly the same as the cancelled 2020 rates. Bob

Right now I am on the Camino de Norte and sadly its not what I experience, prices are at least 20% higher than in 2018, some even more! Stayed at a simple Pension last night not very busy but charged full price!
No more Peregrino discounts.

I'm happy to pay it. We are at Hostel do Mar tonight in A Guarda and there's no bargain here compared to where we've been but in the grand scheme it's cheap. It's a clean, private room with a comfortable bed and bathroom on the beach in Spain. Ok, it's real dated but still, we're on the beach, almost a private beach in Spain, for €55, with good Spanish wine.

For sure one can not support all entrepreneurs, but if I were to choose, I would sponsor the albergues de pergrinos when walking a Camino! :)
