How to get there

By car to the hotel:
The hotel is located on the North of Santiago’s old town. To reach the hotel you need to take the N-550 which crosses the city and take and take a turn up to Rúa de San Roque (if you are coming from the North you will need to turn right and if you are coming from the South you will need to turn left) Once you take this turn, you will find the hotel within 50 metres, in Loureiros Street number 12.

By car from the airport:
The airport is only ten kilometres from the city centre. The easiest and quickest route is taking the highway in the direction to Santiago. The highway ends in a roundabout which we need to cross (go straight). Slightly further ahead we find a second roundabout nest to a Repsol Petrol Station and we take the second outlet to the city centre. We drive along a straight downhill road and we reach a crossroad with traffic lights and a green area with another roundabout to the left. We place ourselves in the left lane and see the roundabout with a big bronze statue of a pilgrim in the middle. We take the direction onto which the pilgrim is looking ( Pastoriza Street). We keep on driving straight and one minute after we reach an area with big trees to the left (San Roque Street) , we continue and take the first street to the right after the trees. There is a restaurant (a very good one) on the corner called La Bodeguilla de San Roque . The house on the other corner going down to the left is the hotel.

excellent boutique hôtel

Nous avons passé 5 jours formidable. Nous étions comme à la maison le service attentionné en plus, jolie déco design très chaleureuse, super petit déjeuner avec des produits du terroir de très bonne qualité (pain super, fromage top, confitures maison différentes tous les jours) et pour conclure un patio privatif superbe.
On reviendra!!! En plus c'est à 5 mn à pied de la cathédrale

Nous avons aimé, lors de ce séjour de trois jours dans un cadre ancien joliment rénové, l'accueil soigné, le calme en centre ville, la variété aux petits déjeuners et même l'attention d'un cadeau d'anniversaire!

Die richtige Belohnung nach dem Jakobsweg

Ich habe mich nach 4 Tagen kurzpilgern für das Hotel Altair entschieden, da es ca. 500 Meter von der Kathedrale entfernt ist. Ich habe dort den besten Service in dieser Kategorie erfahren. Ich wurde sehr freundlich empfangen und verabschiedet. Mir wurde fehlendes Rasierzeug auf das Zimmer gebracht. Das Hotel gibt stellt einen kostenlosen Breitbandzugang zur Verfügung. Außerdem waren Telefonate nach Deutschland kostenlos.

Absolut empfehlenswert

Durch Zufall sind wir auf das Hotel Altair in Santiago gekommen, es liegt etwas ausserhalb des Trubel, oberhalb des Stadtkern, ist sehr leicht zu erreichen. Die Dame an der Rezeption war überaus ehrlich freundlich und sehr bemüht, dass es jedem gefällt. Trotz vorhandener Spanischkenntnisse sprach sie einwandfrei deutsch und englisch. Unser Zimmer war sehr modern und regionsentsprechend eingerichtet, die Ausstattung und das Ambiente entsprach eher einem 5*-Hotel. Uns wurde ein Restaurant in der Nähe empfohlen, dass wirklich ausgezeichnet war und nur von Einheimischen frequentiert wurde.

Sehr schönes Hotel am Rande der Altstadt

Außerordentlich nettes, zuvorkommendes und hilfsbereites Team. Sehr geschmackvolles Interieur (Bruchsteine, Holz, Glas). Saubere, wenn auch nicht ganz so große Zimmer mit interesanten Details. Freies W-Lan im Haus

Frühstück sehr gut. Altstadt ist fußläufig sehr leicht erreichbar.

Auf keinen Fall in der Seitenstrasse (kann sehr teuer werden). Hotel hat Abkommen mit Parkhaus Lasalle auf der anderen Seite der Hauptstrasse.

This is the best boutique hotel we've been in in years. It is so well appointed and esthetically pleasing. The blend of wood, rock, tile, and polished stone is wonderful. The window treatments and hardware above and beyond. Combine this with a multi-lingual staff out to please and you have success. The breakfast was complete and individual. There is parking two blocks away and you are right at the edge of the Old City. If I had to harp the bed was a tad hard and they have one of those silly long pillows two must share. Pues nada!

Eat, drink and explore.

The staff are so friendly, helpful, a mine of information and proud of their heritage. The hotel is beautiful, spotlessly clean and full of character. It is sturdily built in the traditional stone, the interior featuring highly polished wood. There is a lift for those who need it. Our room was spotless, comfortable and a great place to rest your weary bones after a long day (and night) of exploring, sightseeing and tasting the excellent local cuisine and wines. Breakfast is available from 8-11 a.m. I recommend the local brekkie of toast, local ham and cheese. The area is beautiful and everyone is so friendly. We found it good value for money and a great place to stay.

wonderful stay...lovely staff

if you have read the other reviews, you will have a sense of this hotel. I won't repeat a lot of what has already been written except to say, I agree--this is a lovely hotel with fantastic staff. The hotel is in the old city, just on the fringe. The old city itself is not large, Santiago is quite big however. So if you have more than two days, be sure to get to the newer parts of town as well. It is a small hotel on a corner. Wonderfully located. Just to the side of the hotel, up the street (take a left out of the hotel and another immediate left to go up the street, you will find a few tapas wine bars (one recommended by trip advisor--the sticker is on the window) and a bodega that is on the corner which is recommended. So if you don't want to go far, there are places in the immediate area for drink and food. As for the hotel itself, when you enter, there is a small reception desk to the right and to the left is a nice waiting area with a couch and a few chairs plus a computer for public use. To the back are some tables where you have breakfast in the morning or can enjoy a drink at night. it is not really a bar, but the reception staff will make you a drink, pour you a glass of wine or beer, so it is fine if you don't want to go out or are on your own. The rooms are probably pretty standard. I was in one and my mum in another and they both were fairly similar. Good size, nice bathrooms, safe, television, desk, etc. There is wi-fi that is free and was quite good. Others have written about a hard bed, but I thought it was great. The other points raised is about the noise. In fact many said this hotel was 'quiet' Well yes and no, for the most part, I suspect it is pretty quiet but one of the nights I was there, there was singing in the streets at about 4 a.m. and despite the shutters being closed and earplugs, I could still hear it. I think that is not likely to be a usual event but if you are light sleeper, come with ear plugs. Also, remember to close the wooden shutters. These are on the inside, so close them and then make sure you use the latch. That does help with noise. Do not be put off by this. I am an extremely light sleeper and I did fine. I did have the breakfast and it was really lovely. Lovely breads, jams, yoghurt, fresh fruit, the famous almond cakes and cheese and meat are the usual choices, plus fresh juice and coffee. It is worth the very small extra price (I think ?8). The staff can arrange tours if you wish am these are ?55-62 per person and you can choose a variety of different routes. We went to Rias Braixas, which was nice. Our first choice, Costa del morte was not available for the only day we could go but if you can do this one, I think this area (more desolate) is better. The tour company they use Galicia tours was superb. Be sure to let them know you need a tour in English. It is rare to have a tour in anything other than Spanish or English. The tour is very long, includes lunch. Leaving around 930 and back around 630. Finally, a taxi to and/or from the airport is a flat rate of ?21 each way. Given where the hotel is located, if you are not walking in to town, then I would do a taxi. Santiago itself is lovely, but worth no more than 2 days/2 nights. If you are planning on staying longer, head out to see some other parts of Galicia....and finally, whatever you do--STAY HERE!

Room Tip: perhaps on the higher floor if you can but its a small hotel, so anywhere is great....
