Located inside the old city wall, this hotel was comfortable and charmingly old-fashioned. It seemed to be a popular spot for the locals to stop in for a drink after work. The restaurant was adequate and provided a good breakfast. If you're interested in churches and the like, you'll love this location' They have underground parking.

The hotel has been converted from a former castle and the building still has lots of original features. The atrium is stunning and a great spot for pre/post dinner drink. It is right next to the Cathedral and close to a good variety of bars and restaurants. Check in was efficient and the room a good size and very clean.... More

Cannot really add much to other reviewers. Central location - right on the main square. Avila looks magical, almost surreal. The building has character: high ceilings, arcades, big glazed bathroom. Reception was very helpful in pointing the ways getting in and out of the city - they are a little tricky. We used underground garage - wanted to avoid possible... More

We've loved our stay at the hotel. Just accross the cathedral inside the city walls. The hotel has a parking place (17 euros per day) so you'll not have a problem if you're driving. From the hotel you can walk a visit Avila at leisure pace. The room was confortable and clean.

This ancient castle has been transformed into a hotel. Since it is an old construction, getting to your room may be challenging as there are many intersecting halls and small sets of stairs along the way. The place is charming and close to the major attractions of this well enclosed medieval town. The ancient city wall is intact and quite... More

A very pleasant hotel with helpful staff. As an old palace the hotel has character with glazed courtyards for sitting and dining. The situation could not be better opposite the cathedral. Extra pillows were provided promptly on request. Good buffet breakfast.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour group. The location is wonderful, just a few steps from the cathedral. It thought it was charming to stay in the bounds of the walled city. I am not sure how much the room cost as it was included in our fee for the tour. The rooms were roomy enough... More

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
