Stayed 2 nights in Avila. The hotel is in an ideal position for walking the sights. It has a nice bar and we enjoyed excellent tapas at lunchtime. Also the hotel is spotlessly clean, and the staff, particularly Ness in the bar are all friendly.

This is a two star hotel so the 85 Euros we were charged made it extremely over priced. Our room was very basic and a little small, also appeared to be very new. Ridiculous wash basin in the bathroom (imagine trying to wash in a wok shaped basin only 3 inches deep!). Beds appeared smaller than most and were rather... More

There are many hotels within the city walls, but this one is just (literally) outside of the walls. Very clean with it's own café on site, so no need to go looking for breakfast, although the choice is limited to croissants and cake. The fresh orange is just that though, fresh, and lovely. The rooms were very clean, and the... More

Hotel is near the old centre. Parking can be done next to the road near the hotel and is for free, whenever there is no space available then a paid parking place is next to the hotel. Rooms are small but very clean. The shower does have a very small cabin, the bathroom is large and also clean. Breakfast is... More

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.
