Hotel Altair

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Traditionally Galician on the outside, inside this serene little boutique hotel has a Japanese-inspired design, creating a calm and welcoming place to retreat to after a busy day sightseeing.

Located on the edge of the historic centre, the helpful English-speaking staff serve an excellent breakfast, and will help you find just the right restaurant to hit in the evening. There’s also an inspirational library of art and travel books to peruse.

Located on a quiet, cobblestoned, mostly-residential street on the northern fringe of Santiago de Compostela’s historic centre, the Altair is a five-minute walk from the Cathedral, and ten minutes from the Abastos Market, the city’s foodie hub. It’s perfectly placed for exploring on foot, there are dozens of boutiques, bars and restaurants within 5- to 10-minutes’ walk.

It’s a good bet for couples, and there’s parking nearby at bargain rates, so a good option for motorists as well.
