The Altair hotel is very well located, that is: within walking distance to the main central square and you can choose several ways, and surrounded by good restaurants, yet away from all the noise. Rooms, as well as bathroom, at least the one we were sent to was small but very

We had a relaxing and comfortable stay here, a great retreat after 4 days of sightseeing with thoughtful and helpful staff. Most hotels in the old town were in noisy areas but this is a quiet street close to lovely cafes, restaurants and a mini market. Santiago is wonderfully

Any parking availability? How close to hotel?
As for parking, we are a small hotel in the old town of Santiago and we have no garage. However we do have an agreement with a public car park (La Salle). The price for our customers is 10 euros for 24 hours. They do not allow to reserve but they always have vacancies. You can come with your car to just the front door of the hotel to leave your luggage and we will tell you how to reach the parking.

Saludos: ¿Está incluido el desayuno? ¿Cuáles son las adaptaciones para el estacionamiento? Gracias
Buenas tardes, Por favor, perdone la tardanza en responder. El desayuno no está incluído en nuestras tarifas. Tiene un precio de 8.50 € por persona y día. Se trata de un desayuno continental servido en mesa y que incluye productos frescos y de nuestra tierra: zumo de naranja natural, tarta de santiago, pan de hogaza, queso de tetilla... En relación al estacionamiento tenemos convenio con un parking público situado muy cerca del hotel. Se llama la Salle y tiene un precio de 10 € por 24 horas. De nuevo le pedimos disculpas por la demora y esperamos que esta información le sea útil. Un cordial saludo, Pepa Fuertes
