I was booked here for my visit to the university, and could not have been more comfortable. It is close to the historic centre, and within walking distance of the university, so very handy, but unlike many city centre hotels, quiet at night. The gardens and views are a high

A view of the Costa Vella walled garden
Hi !!! It takes just 20 minutes. Really, most of the way is a street up hill but comfortable to walk. Anyway, if you wanted a big bag, we suggest to get a taxi ( about 6/7 euros ). We have two type of double rooms: 1) Standard : 83, 00 € 2) With balcony-gallery : 97, 00 € These ones are the best ones with views to the garden. We suggest to have a look to our web-site...you will find all the information and you can book directly through the system. Many thanks for your interest. Best regards from Compostela, Roberto

Is parking available please
Regarding the parking , we have to tell you that we do not have parking space at hotel, as we are placed within the historical centre of Santiago, where car circulation is not allowed. But we have a special agreement with "PARKING LA SALLE" a nearby car park, which offers a rate of 10 euro a day to our guests. Personally, I suggest to drive towards street Porta da Pena, where our hotel is placed, and once there, you will find three bollards on the street that stop cars going into the old town. Costa Vella is just on the right and it will take you less than 10 seconds to tell us that you have arrived and you are waiting there. This way, we´ll open the entrance and you will be able to leave the car in from of the hotel for a few minutes to get the luggage and be explained about the best way to get to car park, or even about places to park on the nearby streets.,ok ?. It´s not a special procedure at the entrance: you ought to keep the ticket and we´ll put a stamp of the hotel. When you leave, you need to show the personal there and you´ll get the discount.
