The hotel cancelled on me three days before the arrival after trying to force me to prepay the fees on some unsecured website despite me making the reservation via booking.com and securing it with my credit card. I didn’t feel safe paying online in a foreign country and refused to do so meanwhile they cancelled the entire stay. Extremely unprofessional and disappointing. I was walking the Camino and this truly put some negative light on my journey.

Lovely room and lovely hotel but, with a nearby bar, the NOISE gets LOUDER and LOUDER and LOUDER all night long — and I mean until 5 am or later — so no chance of sleep until after that. WiFi also very very very weak.

We stayed here for two nights after the Camino. The location is fabulous: central, but in a quiet area, I have booked the most spacious rooms and they look like on the photos. The ladies at reception were friendly and helpful. In the lounge room they provide tea and coffee. Recommend it.

I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Alda Algalia. This hotel is in a great location to wonder the narrow streets of Santiago De Compostela. Upon check in we were greeted by a very friendly lady who checked us in and ensured we had all we needed. My room was very clean and had all I needed for the stay. The bed was comfortable and the shower had enough pressure to wash away the cobwebs and make sure I was set for the day. Breakfast is buffet style with plenty of choice. All staff encountered over the two days were friendly and helpful and I would recommend this hotel for anyone planning a trip to the area.

We booked this hotel because the price was attractive and the hotel well situated in the upper end of the old town, within easy walking distance to the Cathedral, convenient for a long-stay car park (we had a hired car because we wanted to visit A Coruna and Lugo) and close to the pick up point for two guided tours we had booked. If you have a hired car, you need to find your way to the Parking La Salle on the Rua Ramon de la Valle Inclan, and get your parking ticket stamped by the hotel reception. Present it to the attendant on your return (24 hour attended service) and you will receive a small reduction. Our room was 304 which was accessed by the lift, and was large and light. The french windows opened onto a small balcony and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom had everything we needed, plenty of hot water and new towels each day. Our room was spotlessly clean, the WiFi worked well and we heard no noise from any of the hotel rooms, although there was some noise from outside - bin collection - which is only to be expected. Breakfast was a reasonable price (5€) and there was a selection of cereals, juice, bread, ham, cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit and pastries. However the hotel did not have any black tea, only infusions, so we bought some. We found that the breakfast start time of 08H30 was a bit late for us on the days we had booked coach tours, but managed to have breakfast and then dash off to the pick up point - very few of the other guests seemed to take breakfast. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and made our stay delightful. Thank you so much for your kindness and welcome. Altogether a comfortable and clean hotel and each day we felt as though we were 'coming home'. Excellent value for what we paid.
