This converted nunnery is a beautiful building right on the outskirts of the fortified town of Albarracin. The rooms are large and quite well-appointed – certainly up to standard for the cost per night. The man at reception couldn’t have been more friendly to us, explaining everything to us about where the exits are, where best to park our motorbikes,... More

This might be only a 2 star hotel, but when we walked around Albarracín, we were reminded of why we had chosen it. The location is excellent for views, free local parking and unloading luggage! We were offered an upgrade and were pleased that we took the opportunity, since although the room was pleasantly furnished, it was a bonus to... More

Very good and cheap hotel, with easy access to the central area of town ( just use elevator to be at the same level that the main street). The rooms are really clean and comfy. The bathroom unexpectedly modern . The only problem was that in winter the central heating in the room is not enough. We had about +12... More

You can’t have a more appropriate hotel for visiting and exploring the amazing medieval town of Albarracin. The have done a terrific job converting an old monastery into a modern hotel. The rooms are spacious with a rustic ambience and 32 and 37 inch flat screen television sets. The bathrooms offer ample space and such modern, almost high tech showers... More

Nice hotel for short stay. They have dissadvatages and they dont have very comfortable rooms. But they are very nice for 2-3 day stay. It is actually a castle, little bit renufated but not much. Internet but only in the hall. Beds comfortable ... but not on the highest level. (DO NOT FORGET IT IS 2-3 STAR HOTEL) In generale... More

Very comfortable and friendly, this historic building was very impressive from both inside and outside. State of the art shower and beautiful, unique bedroom.
