We've been in several hotels in Ávila, to me this one offers the best balance for quality & price. Located inside the wall, near the most important monuments to visit, and also from the bars, restaurants and even night life. Recently renewed (haven't seen it before that).

When we arrived at this hotel having had an amusing experience with the Taxi driver in Salamanca (caused by a misunderstanding in language) I thought we had got it wrong again. This could not be the hotel we had booked far too upmarket I thought. I was only sure as we walked in the front door by the fact that... More

We are a family of 6; arrived in Avila without any hotel reservations on Saturday afternoon. We took 2 rooms in this hotel with 3 beds each. The rooms were well decorated, clean and spacious enough. The beds were pretty typical of Spain; firm with basic linens, not plush. Disappointed that the air conditioners in both rooms didn't cool. This... More

A very pleasant room in the hotel which was situated next to the Cathedral. It took us several attempts at driving to the hotel before we gave up, parked outside the walls and walked to the hotel. Parking was a problem - to stay in the car park recommended by the hotel would have cost 30 euros whereas to park... More

Beautiful Hotel in excellent location right in the middle of the wonderful town of Avila. Huge bedroom with large comfortable bed and big bathroom. Ideally situated for sightseeing and diningout. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. Not easy to find as it is within the city walls and access is via one of the city gates which if you... More

The hotel is of unquestionable high standard, and that´s why some issues are hard to overlook. I stayed there for 3 nights with my fiancée in a travel with a bigger group. Our room didn´t have double bed, it was two single beds put together. This is fairly common, but even the bedshirts were singles. I went to the reception... More

A very impressive entrance, and a beautiful room overlooking the Cathedral square. Everything was very clean and well presented. We used the hotel car park, and have to disagree with the reviewer who said only a small car car reach it. We drove a Range Rover, right to the front door, and then ...carefully!! ... around a narrow road to... More

We spent just a night but it was enough. The Hotel is right in front of the Cathedral, which is a great location, the entrance and main hall are big and nice, but that's all. The furniture is not old, it's broken, the carpets are dirty, the elevators are old. The resting areas are uncomfortable and lacking of seats. The... More

The hotel is right by the cathedral and within walking distance around the old town and local attractions. Yet it is sheltered by the church that it is quiet and peaceful hotel. We had group dinner there and the food and wine are both good. It is a hotel with character with reasonable price. Only small car can reach the... More

What better location than the very heart of Avila right opposite the Cathedral. Beautifully located behind the City Walls this charming Hotel has a great feel of renaissance about it, as previous comments had made, a little "worn" but charming nonetheless. We had a great view of the Cathedral Plaza with a double bed and good sized bathroom with overhead... More
