Where are the Paradors along the Camino Frances?

Can you recommend a good hotel in Santiago de Compostela?

The question was:

In reviewing the posts about a good hotel in Santiago there were several comments about Paradors.

Are there many Paradors along the way? I only know of two.

I realize that many (or most) pilgrims may think that choosing a parador instead of an albergues is totally out of character while walking el Camino. I am thinking spending thousands of dollars to get there, being able to take time off from daily routine and from a country where a two-week vacation is a luxury nowadays, should allow me to break a bit from the norm.

Any personal experiences?

The question was:

Can you tell me if I am right in thinking that it’s possible to get accommodation along the Camino Frances for as little as 5 euros/night? This is what I’d been told and budgeting for (starting around the start of October 2012), but reading through the forum, I see a lot of places for 25 euros and up. I’ve looked through Guy’s (?) wonderful spreadsheet and it seems things are a lot more expensive than I thought.
