Is a beautiful old building very close to Avila cathedral. Service is very nice. Rooms are clean and tidy. Is a very good 4 star hotel and the location is amazing. The rooms have been renovated and are well equipped. The hair drier is not good but they can borrow you one. They have a cafeteria/bar in the center of... More

There are two sections to this very large hotel - rooms in the older part (which have more character and overlook that wonderful inner courtyard), and rooms in the building next door (which also has some old character but not as much) which have an extremely labyrinthine method of access. We stayed in the building next door. The room was... More

We spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel which is perfectly situated for seeing everything in old Avila. We had asked for a room with a double bed but got one with a king which was a nice surprise. The beautiful inner court yard is now El Tostado restaurant and bar - they move the dividers back and forth to... More

This hotel is in a former palace in Avila. It is located right across from the Cathedral. Our room was very comfortable and the staff was very courteous. With very little traffic in this city, I would think every room is quiet. I don't think you can go wrong with this hotel.

Pros: Nice place to stay. Pefect situated just in front of the catedral and a few minutes by walk from the city Wall. The rooms are big and clean, and the bathroom is quite big and refurnished too. The hotel is decorated as medieval style, trying to make the customer feel like in the palace that once the building was.... More

Very comfortable four star hotel in converted 'palacio' - or rather a couple of them knocked together. Could not be in a better location, opposite the cathedral in this beautiful, historic city. Wonderful breakfast really set us up for the day. Comfortable room, quiet at night. We had a snack lunch on our first day which was very good (full... More

What an outstanding hotel! I was here with a group of 29 people. We were only there for one night and we wished we had stayed longer. I want to thank Cristina and the people at the front desk for their great service. The people in the dining room and restaurant manager were great!!! My group was supposed to have... More

The hotel is located directly in the old town of Avila. You hardly need 5 minutes to get anywhere interesting in the town. The breakfast has a variety of all you need and want. The property itself is a very historic building which has been renovated to the needs of today. The only downside is the parking. As there is... More

Now and again I get it right, or so my wife claims. The hotel could only be closer to the cathedral if it were located in the nave! It is right opposite and don’t worry about the bells, we did not hear them at all. Set in an old ‘Palacio the interior is quite stunning in both the public rooms... More
