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

We booked this hotel, based on Trip Adv When we got to our room, it smelled so strongly of chemical detergents that I requested another. The next room was no better. We tried to explain that I was highly sensitive, and that I just was not going to be able to stay there. They refused to give our money back.... More

This hotel is a must if you are planning to stay in Avila. The room was impeccably clean and fresh, in fact the whole place is perfect. Located just outside one of the "gates" into the old town where you find lots of restaurants and bars. We parked the car on the street just outside the hotel, it's free and... More
