    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Opposite the pilgrimage site of the city’s famous Cathedral, the five-star GL Parador de Santiago de Compostela is a historic monument in its own right. Also known as Hostal Reis Catolicos, the structure was erected as a Royal Hospital in 1499 and became one of the earliest hotels in the world by providing lodgings for pilgrims. From its home on the perimeter of the cobblestone Obradoiro Square, the hotel’s austere façade betrays a sense of its impressive size; stretching back from here, the building is a maze of exquisite architecture constructed around four beautiful cloisters. You enter through an ornately-carved stone archway and into a world of exuberant luxury, where the interior design speaks of the property’s regal heritage. Plush fabrics, rich carpets and tapestries and antique decorations; wherever you go, the mediaeval interior design is maintained well to immerse guests in the building’s history. Original features include vaulted and coffered ceilings and stone archways, while the ornamental nature of the four cloisters lulls guests into peaceful contemplation. There are two restaurants to choose from at the hotel, each located on the basement levels of the building, where the low light creates an ambient setting for romantic meals. Enxebre do Hostal serves Atlantic cuisine and Restaurante dos Reis occupies the former stables of the Royal Hospital, where you can indulge in local cuisine under vaulted ceilings and lantern light. Traditional Galician meals exploit fish and meats prepared in a contemporary style, and dishes are accompanied by famous labels from local wineries. Other lounging areas include a bar and several lounge areas, while the 137 guestrooms accommodate guests in the utmost style and comfort.
