San Francisco Hotel Monumento

Top choice hotel in Santiago de Compostela
Image by

The three cloister-courtyards and low-lit hallways recall the hotel's former life as a Franciscan monastery. But the rooms are large and all about contemporary comfort, and there's a great indoor pool as well as a huge grassy garden, cafe, and good restaurant.

The restaurant serves a good €21 lunch and dinner menú based on recipes from Spanish monasteries and convents – proof that the monastic life was not one of deprivation! Room rates helpfully include parking.
