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 🙂
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-
Hospedería San Martín Pinario is on the Camino where you enter the Praza do Obradoiro through the arch. The pilgrim rate was 25€ for a single room with breakfast, but you need to call ... it is not available online. The hotel room which was a slight upgrade was 45€ with breakfast. Lunch was great for ~12€ in a cool room. There is a coffee lounge across from the reception desk.

Hello from Newfoundland. I have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Costa Vella…..absolutely fantastic and delivers on everything you have set out as your wishes. It also has the most magical garden which is a key feature in the city. Buen Camino !
 
I spent last night in a very central pension - Pazo de Agra. Less than 5 minutes walk from the cathedral, 3 minutes from the airport bus stop, and about 2 minutes from Casa Ivar! A bit old-fashioned in fittings but cheap and clean and convenient. In the pedestrian zone so fairly quiet too. €25 for a single room with private bathroom. I would be very happy to stay there again.
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
Here is another vote for Hotel Costa Vella - I stay here every time in Santiago. Five minute walk to the Cathedral. It has a lovely private yard where you can have breakfast or a drink. Breakfast is great as well. The owner (Antonio) and his family have operated the hotel for many years.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.

The HSMP is before you enter the Praza, before the arch. As Tom Hagger has said, you can book by email. You can book the 'regular' rooms online, but you need to request a pilgrim room by email.

They seem to be booked for my dates. Looking at Hostal Anosa Casa. Anyone stayed here

I stayed at Lux hotel (modern, a few blocks from the Cathedral) in the newer portion of the city and Hotel Montenegro (charming, very close to the Cathedral. Both were fine and reasonably priced. Montenegro is halfway up a very steep street so be careful if the treads on your shoes are worn down and it has rained!

Could not agree more...they really helped me out a couple of times and it is a beautiful spot

For location and price..if you are looking for a normal albergue situation, The Last Stamp
Stayed here after walking the Camino Portugues in 2017! Wanted somewhere central as I was continuing onto Muxia/Finisterre the day after!
Was quite small if I remember right!

For no particular reason - other than it’s where I stayed first time in Santiago a decade ago - I always go back to the ‘Altair’. Not the cheapest, but close enough to the centre, spotless and professionally staffed. A local attraction was the Restaurante San Roque; which I fear may have closed.

I love that little hotel. It is my fav place to stay on my own.
If I am leading a group then Hospedería San Martín Pinario it has to be.

My wife and I liked Hostal Suzo on Rua del Villar. A bustling street with colonnades to keep you out of the rain. Down the street from the cathedral. Lots of shops and restaurants. Clean and friendly small hotel with an attached restaurant bar on the first floor. Stayed three days.
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

€83,-
I've recently stayed in Pension Libredon and Casa Celsa. Loved them both and so close to the Cathedral.
