This place is great. The hotel is fully decorated in a quaint but modern style. Rooms are nice, with big comfy beds and bathtubs. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in pointing you best attractions around the city. And the location is the key factor, right around the corner from the cathedral, which puts you in the heart of... More

This hotel is located just around the corner from the Cathedral and among the wonderful boutique shops in the old quarter of Santiago de Compostela. We wanted to treat ourselves after walking the Camino Frances pilgrimage route. The staff spoke excellent English and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

The Hotel Rua Villar was a great place to stay after walking the Camino. A super location to people watch, to see the sights, to walk to restaurants and shopping and steps away from the cathedral. Very clean, comfortable room with air conditioning which was a nice feature for sleeping cool. Most of all I was impressed by the staff.... More

This a return visit for us. Last year, we walked the French Way and wanted to treat ourselves to a little luxury. This year, after completing the Camino Portuguese, we knew we had to go back to this beautiful intimate hotel right in the heart of the old city and a stone's throw from the Cathedral. The food and service... More

The hotel is in incredible location and the staff is super friendly. The rooms are more than adequate, but the TV was quite small and had no English language channels. The free WiFi was great and the bathroom had a nice tub and excellent lighting.

The hotel is very central, just a few steps away from the cathedral. The building is old but the rooms quite modern, although a bit dark but that's just due to the old building. The staff was very nice and helpful. We'd stay there again.

Only stayed here for one night but the location is perfect. Next to the church and a short walk from many other attractions. Newer bathrooms which function perfectly. If I was to come back to Santiago I would not hesitate to stay here again.
