Ultra-modern city hotel, Galicia

Santiago de Compostela | Ref: HSAC5 | Bedrooms: 15


Behind an old stone facade in the upper part of the old quarter of Santiago de Compostela, you will find a real suprise of a hotel.

A sister to our old favourite, the Costa Vella, and inaugurated in autumn 2010, there is no other hotel in the city quite like this. Totally modernist, decorated and furnished in tones of black, grey and white, it is certainly different, but very comfortable and practical, relaxing and friendly.

The cathedral is a five minute walk away and there is a good choice of bars and restaurants just round the corner.
