The hotel is a small building, 25 mtr from de Puerta de la Santa. This gate is in the middle of the south-side of the wall and gives entrance to the beautiful historical city of Avila. The hotel is a very nice place to stay. Kind staff, small but fully equipped and clean rooms, free parking in the neighborhood… And... More

This was our first stop on an almost month long tour of Spain and Portugal and Avila itself remains one of our "must return to" destinations as it's beautiful and has a quite mystical feel to it. The hotel was wonderful. I'd initially booked two rooms for our family of four but upon arrival we were offered the family room... More

If you're looking for a small, smartly-priced hotel in an ideal location, this is should be on your list. Parking can be a little tricky, but we had no problem as it was off-season and midweek. In general, the quality of the food in the cafeteria is lacking but breakfast is fine.

Stayed here for a one night recently, and found it a great hotel, very clean and modernly appointed, with great prices. Suspect it has been recently renovated. It is very conveniently located, easy to get to, with parking available on the street by the door ( as well as pay parking ). It is just outside the city walls, right... More

I am very pleased to stay in a comfortable and clean hotel. The furnishings are modern. The place is obviously well maintained. The owner is very accommodating in preparing food for us when we arrive and changing rooms. Thanks for the hospitality. Much appreciated.

This was a last minute reservation, so was not quite sure what to expect, however, we were pleased with our choice. Surprisingly modern interior but may have been recently updated. Rooms were relatively quiet and comfortable. Note this hotel is outside of the wall, but access is quite close. They advertise a cafeteria but we ate in a local establishment.

I'm just finishing a 3 night stay at this hotel and have loved it. The rooms are spotless, and modern despite what looks like a very old building from the outside. They are small, but certainly adequate in size. No breakfast is included in the price, but there's a little restaurant on the top floor that opens at 8:30 where... More

Recently stayed two nights at this hotel in Avila. Very new and clean hotel. Looks brand new hotel. Staffs are kind. We enjoyed staying here. Cafeteria was also very good. Around 5-10 min by Taxi from train station and just outside of the Wall.

Even our GPS had trouble finding it behind the medieval walls! The initial greeting was cool, but our host soon warmed up to us. The room was very small, but immaculate. Bed made in heaven (and yes, we were really tired!)

We booked this on the strength of other Trip Advisor reviews and on the whole were not disappointed. Some perspective is required. This is a 2 star hotel offering great room rates and it is right by a gate into Avila. The place was spotless and well maintained. Everything we needed was in the room and the bed was fairly... More
