We gave our son a gift of a night at the hotel as a gift after he completed his pilgrimage. He was so very happy with the accommodation and very appreciative. Once again I would like to thank the Expedia representative who went above and beyond to find a hotel that would accept our payment from the U.S.

The hotel was really superb while I stayed there. I was very well welcomed, the room are very clean and comfortable. I would recommend anyone to stay in this hotel while visiting Santiago de Compostela ;-). Julie

"The hotel is a few blocks away from the Cathedral"
Although the hotel is a few blocks away from the Cathedral of Santiago (yes, my legs were tired after walking the Camino) it is well situated and is full of charm. The rooms had a wonderful view with excellent appointments. The bath tub was just right for soaking my tired body after the Camino. When I arrived I was concerned about the noise that might come from a garden wedding outside my room but the noise insulation was fantastic. I did not hear any sounds.
We arrived at 10.30 am but thankfully our room was ready and we were checked in quickly. The staff on reception were extremely friendly and helped us get our bearings, showing us all we needed to see on the map and advising us what to do first. My partner speaks fluent Spanish so communication was no problem, but their English was excellent and I'm sure they spoke many other languages too!
As the hotel is on a corner at a junction of roads, it was noisy with the window open, as other people have said, but we didn't find it a problem - the beds were so comfortable and we were exhausted after our sightseeing. Breakfast was functional but compared with some hotels where we've stayed, it actually rated well for a Spanish 4 star.
The convenient location, just on the edge of the old town, meant we were able to pop back to the room easily if we needed to.
We plan to walk the last part of the camino next year and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again at the end.
The hotel was brilliant. The staff were very welcoming on our arrival and always friendly and helpful with excellent advice on the bus stop for Mount Gozo. We really enjoyed the buffet breakfast where a range of food was available and the staff wonderful. Our room had blackout and air conditioning and we slept very well. We caught the bus from the airport to the bus station for 3 euros and walked to the hotel in about 15 minutes all downhill. We walked into the town every day and back again as we enjoyed the walk. It was uphill going and this may be a problem for people who find walking difficult but I am sure the staff would advise on local buses. The hotel is part of a shopping centre and very close to a large supermarket where you can buy anything you might need. This would be helpful to know to find it as we had to ask for directions, it is obvious when you know with a smart reception and lift to all floors. I loved it. .
The location of the hotel is a few miles out of the historical town, but since we were driving, that was not an issue for us. The hotel is nice and clean. The rooms are spacious and well kept with very friendly personnel. Those elements are found in many other good hotels, but what puts Puerta del Camino in a completely different league is the cuisine.
We stayed there only two nights and we made the right decision to have dinner there the first night. We couldn't wait to go back for the second day to repeat the experience. My wife rated the second dinner she had there as one of the "best meals in my life". The service at the restaurant is just as good as the food they prepare and the prices are more than reasonable for the quality they serve. I have already recommended this place to my close friends and we are definitely going back there the next time we are in Santiago de Compostela.
