Stayed in Costa Vella in 2015 and was very nice and great location. Nice resturant attached and gardens in the rear. About a 5 minute walk to cathedral.

A "Tourigrino" trip once Covid has passed, so 2023
We stayed in the Aíras Nunes in 2016, things do change but it would take some very poor management to run such a nice place into the ground.
Clean rooms, moderately priced. There was, I seemed to recall, coffee/tea making equipment in the room. We had a room overlooking the street so you might get some noise from passers by though I don't think it bothered us.
One thing I do remember is the quality of the pastries in the cafe downstairs and the fact that while the reception desk isn't always manned you can gain access 24hrs a day through a door code.
Would always consider this on my list of where to stay in SdC.

Hello fellow pilgrims. I am wondering if anyone has stayed at hotel Aíras Nunes or Costa Vella in Santiago. If so, would you recommend either. Many thanks

PS. Any recommendations would be much appreciated 👍
In Google Maps Nunes 4.4, Vella 4.7 so both but Vella has more positive comments and higher rating

Same. We traveled last November. The 24 hour code was nice and allowed us to check in very early and leave our bags so we could go to Mass without our backpacks. Small room, right on the street. The noise did not bother us at all.. Nice tea/coffee making and a bottle of water. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

In 2017, we stayed in the Rosa Rosae hotel. A comfortable hotel and a good breakfast. It is a ten minute stroll from the Cathedral.

I have stayed here recently and I would recommend it too. Still clean, still has the coffee/tea making equipment.
There's no reception desk now, due to Covid, just the door codes. They also have lockers in case you need to store luggage for a while after check-out time.

If staying at the Costa Vella, especially on a weekend, ask for a room overlooking the gardens rather than the street, as they are much quieter. A lovely place.

We have stayed at Aíras Nunes 5 of 6 times while in Santiago. The location is very central, and despite being located on a busy street, we never had issues with noise (and my husband is a very poor sleeper). Reception staff has always been very helpful with transportation to train/airport/bus, luggage storage, etc. I personally like the self check-in option after hours, knowing that you can get in without having to wait for someone.

Haven't stayed at either one, but I am a big fan of (and was pleasantly surprised by) Hostal Suso. Very near Cathedral, next to the tourism office. Same family runs the Bar and the Hostal upstairs. Extremely comfortable and really nice people.

Hi all, with much accommodation options i Santiago, what are some personal favourites please. I prefer private room, central to cathedral, mid cost for about 3 nights in May. Any suggestions 🙂
