15Never mind. I had sent an email to the hotel and they've replied very quickly. There are no buses or shuttles at the time, but a taxi costs 10-12€ apparently. And there are plenty of trains to Santiago in the morning, as early as I like.
This gives me more time in Seville, and I don't have to worry about overnight bus rides, which somehow always give me the willies.
Thanks again, everyone. :)

16You should check out La Coruña, it has the longest seafront promenade in Europe, good restaurants serving delicious Galician seafood around María Pita, the main square, and a great beach. Plenty of hotel options too. After you've paid the airport supplement, the taxi fare will be nearer to 15 euros. I spend every weekend in A Coruña, so I'm talking from personal experience. :-)

19There's the trouble. This is part of a larger trip, and I have only one-and-a-half days in Coruña / Santiago. (Which is why I didn't want to travel in the day and lose even more time.)
Being inherently lazy, I don't want to rush through and do both cities. I wouldn't have much fun. This is the first time I'm planning such a trip and so far the planning has been full of heartbreaks involving places I really want to see, but can't fit into my schedule. So I've promised myself a second trip later. :)
Staying in Coruña makes sense because the flight reaches there at midnight, but if Santiago is so unmissable, I could always take an early-morning train (there are trains starting from 5:30 in the morning) to Santiago and leave Coruña for my second not-very-soon-unfortunately-but-not-that-distant-either trip.
Since it looks like you know both the cities very well, what would you recommend? :)
