We stayed here for two night in March and found it to be a good hotel in a very central location. the staff were efficient and friendly and the breakfast was very good. The room was mid sized and had a small Juliet Balcony overlooking the central "breakfast area". Would stay here again when visiting Avila.

We stayed at this hotel whilst travelling from Madrid with friends enroute to Southern Spain. This a wonderful place to stay, inside the walled city adjacent to the Cathedral and the old town. Avila is only a small town largely centred around the walled city. We paid a paltry sum for a beautiful room with all facilities. The central lounge,... More

Stayed a night here in December 2014. The hotel is quite deceptive from the outside, because the photos lead you to think its fairly small. But inside, it's not; and there seems to be a wing out the back (where we were) with a whole lot more rooms in. The location is good, the overall setting is very nice, the... More

We stayed one night in Palacio de los Velada in November 2014. This hotel occupies the palace built in XV-XVI century and situated in historical center of Avila, just fifty meters from the Cathedral. All historical places such as Cathedral, Basilica San Vicente, Romanesque Churches of San Tome the Old and San Pedro are in walking distance from the hotel,... More

Location, room size, bathroom size, old world charm, I doubt there is a better choice for us. What a beautiful setting to have a drink in the evening. Parking in the garage and at the low price we paid for the room it was worth it. The hotel could not be easier to find. Just follow the Centro signs to... More

Large hotel right in centre of old city next to the cathedral. Decent sized rooms, comfortable beds but extra pillows have to be requested if you want them. Nice size bath, miniature soap and no paper hanks. Small draw space, mini bar, tv but only half the rooms have a safe which can be very annoying as you have to... More

We feel somewhat let down by Hotel Palacio de Los Velada. Why? After we made the booking we received an email that we could expect traffic problems due to a medieval festival in town. What the hotel did not say was that the hotel could not at all be reached by car. After a hour of driving rounds and finally... More

The location of the hotel is within the old city walls which makes exploring the old city very easy. Our room was spacious, furniture was dated but that was expected in an old castle! For 1 Euro you can park just outside the city walls so ask the reception where to go. Don't forget to climb the walls!

This is a great hotel to stay! Very unique that it is located within these 100ft tall fortress walls in this very historic medieval town in Avila, Spain! We happened to be here during a 3 day festival! This made it even more special! There is a parking garage, but unfortunately due to the festival, we were unable to use... More
