Turns out Avila is a UNESCO World Heritage site. A stunning little town and this hotel is a bargain. The rooms would make Hyacinth Bucket proud. The bathroom is basic but none the less a great budget option. It's very central, opposite the cathedral and tourist information. Great for a stop over.

Not a palace in the British sense so don't expect Buckingham! Non the less this modern hotel is built around a traditional Avilan palace. Sympathetic job in a good location to explore this lovely town. We had a brilliant time, it was exceedingly cold while we were there -7! But the hotel was warm and welcoming. Only thing that spoiled... More

I stayed in this hotel in June as part of a group of 5 friends. reception area very good and main bar area stunning with three storey arched walls as a backdrop. Rooms very comfortable although would have liked a view. Only had a small high window so felt a little claustrophobic. Could not get the safe to work either.... More

This hotel is everything needed on a touring holiday. There is an underground car park and a good breakfast with plenty of choice. The elegant central patio is enclosed so it can be enjoyed at any time. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment on that. The room was of a good size (so we could both... More

The hotel is located within the walls, right in the cathedral square. This repurposed palace is full of charm, where you can enjoy dinner or a drink in the comfortable glass-roofed courtyard and never want to leave. The food was nice and a good plentiful buffet breakfast if you are willing to pay 12€. Which is fine considering the room... More

location could not be beaten, you are inside the walled ancient city with the amazing wall surrounding it. see the wall at nigh BTW while swallows flit around it. The hotel is large, sometimes over-run by tourists in large groups. Lovely indoor patios Breakfast only so-so, stick w the coffee and croissant choice, cheaper and a better value, than the... More

Palacio de los Velada was once a genuine Palace and although it's in a great location just within the City walls of Avila I think it needs some tlc. The public areas are grand and impressive but the accommodation itself the bedroom and bathroom are old fashioned and in need of repair as well as redecoration. The staff were quite... More

We stayed in Palacio de los Velada one night while traveling around Madrid. It was a bit tricky to find the hotel as it is situated within pedestrianised area of the old town and we were not sure if we were allowed to drive in there. Confirming that with hotel we parked in their underground parking for a fee. We... More
