Hi, I’m writing from the waiting room of the Hospital in Santiago de Compostela and after I’ve been seen I need to get to an Albergue, but I’ve been looking and I’m struggling to find somewhere I can stay for 3 nights in a single room, as I’ve a raging temperature and need antibiotics and can’t face being in a dorm at the moment, but I don’t want to have to pay out loads on a regular hotel chain if at all possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions of where to try!??
Thanks in advance

Try the Seminario Menor, If you explain your situation they may be able to help.

Pension Hortas at rua Hortas.
Or recommended : Hostal Suso in Rua Vilar. Book directly with them and not through a booking site.

Quick recovery!!!

EDIT ; both not available on booking at moment, might be because they do not have a 24 h reception.

Search on booking for Pension San Martino Penario or Pension Via Stellae , they still have rooms available tonight...city centre and safe. And if you come in by taxi, easy to find.

I wish i could help, but a quick scan isn’t coming up with much. My only suggestion is that you phone directly to the suggestions made in above posts, as they could be cheaper than booking.com. Hope you manage to find something and respond to antibiotics quickly...

@Jsalmon , I hope you've found a place by now. But just in case, I am currently at the Hotel Avenida, on the edge of the old city. Singles run about 52€ (call direct) and they have rooms available. The staff speak English and are very helpful. I hope you are well soon.

Thanks everyone, I’ve got painkillers and antibiotics and I’m in a dorm for tonight as it was close to 10pm by the time I got into town so had to get something.... I will definitely try those suggestions tomorrow. Many thanks for all the support

I second this. If they're still doing the cleaning Seminario Menor will allow you to leave luggage in their lockers until they reopen around 11.00. I stayed there two years ago. The single rooms are good and there's a very good shop and cooking facilities in the basement.

Phone San Martin Pinario: 981560282 and ask for a room on the pilgrim floor. Costs about 25 euros for a private room with bath and breakfast included. It is right across from the Cathedral. Good luck.
Unfortunately I have volunteers in the house, so both my two guest bed rooms are occupied, but anything else I can do to help - just tell me!

I also second the suggestion of San Martin Pineiro, it is very near to me and if you need any shopping done, moral support etc I would be close. Please tell me if you need any help and so sorry for not having a room for you! SY

Hi @Jsalmon
I hope the antibiotics have kicked in overnight for you ..
I also recommend the advice above from Albertagirl. San Martin Pinario is hard to beat.
If you’re near the cathedral (San Martin is just to the right of cathedral as you walk past .,before you go under the arch) ., just walk in and ask at the desk if they have a pilgrim room available.
You can sleep in if you need to also., the cleaners won’t disturb you.. they usually wait until you’re out of the room. Leisurely breakfast available too included in the price which was E23 in May this year.
@SYates is a great person to have a chat with.
Also pay a visit to Pilgrim House for a chat with @natefaith or their helpers. Good place to get your laundry done for reasonable price , a cuppa and a chat. Hopefully you are on the mend soon
Buen Camino
Annie

Ugh, so sorry to hear you're not doing well! Hope you feel better soon and can find a great place to rest and recover. Pilgrim House is closed on Wednesdays, but do come by on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday if you need anything or just want to chat, 11am - 6pm. Take care!

Follow SYates advice above. Get to San Martin Pinario, just though the arch, then immediately to your left, opposite the north side of the Cathedral. Then, use either SYates (resident Camino Angel) or the very kind folks at the Pilgrim House.

Sybil's home is about 10 minutes walk from Plaza Obradoiro. You can send SYates a private conversation message through this forum, No one else will see it.

You will be in very good hands.

Hope this helps.

Ask for a 4th floor pilgrim room at San Martin Pinario. It is behind the cathedral and single rooms for good price.

And if they didn’t use the room they will let you drop your stuff before 10 am.. they did for me.

Hi everyone, thank you all so so much for your kind messages. I didn’t have much luck with SM as I tried phoning and the language barrier was an issue, but I have found somewhere where although it’s a dorm, they are quiet at the moment and will fill up all the other places before putting anyone with me, so I should get enough rest.
I’m very touched by the messag

Walk over to San Martin Pinario. They DO speak English at the front desk. If you have a credencial, they will guarantee you at least two nights if they have the rooms available. If demand for pilgrim rooms is currently low, they will let you stay longer. It remains the best deal in town for a private, en-suite.

You can also send Sybil (SYates) a PM thought this forum. You can count on her to come to assist you, really, she will...;)

Hope this helps.

Several and counting...

Agree with many above. San Martin Pinario one of the best deals on town, with "all you can eat"buffet breakfast. DON'T book on Bookingdotcom. DON'T. Can I make that clear?.DON'T. They have rooms on lower floors more expensive than adjacent Parador. If you spent any of your formative years in a seminary, you'll feel doubly at home - except I've never known a seminary with ensuite! Oh and please don't tell everyone about it!

TRY AirBnB. You can find reasonable priced rooms with many different options.

I am escorting the Roll of Honour (Afghanistan) on Camino France on 20 May from SJPDP
The Roll of Honour details the 41 young Australians who died on Active Service in Afghanistan. In the centenary of the ANZAC’s, the Roll of Honour will be escorted to 41 prominent places and events around the World, laying 41 Poppies at each location.

I thought the first place everybody would have mentioned was the place next to the Archway, own room and en-suite 20 euros for as long as you want brilliant people who run it
