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

The Palacio Valderrabanos is located inside the old walled town of Avila in the province of Castilla y Leon it was an old Ducal palace it is in the cathedral plaza which is very romantic location, the décor, fittings and fixtures have that ancient 'worn look', the room that we stayed in was large for a double and the beds...

Basically in my opinion the hotel have a few rooms remodeled (those shown in pictures by the management and the people who was lucky of that) and others in quite bad condition. It's not a matter of "old fashioned" style the rooms; the atmosphere is depressing as well as the stale smell. In the pictures I prefered to show some... More

I stayed 3 nights last summer using Avila as a hub for visiting Salamanca, and Segovia. I found the hotel absolutely gorgeous, but I was lucky: for lack of other rooms, I got an immense apartment or 3 rooms at the second floor facing both the cathedral square and the side road. Clean, the bedroom was delightful with nice paintings... More

Ditto on several of the previous reviews. Great location inside the walls next to the cathedral,but that's it. My husband thought he had reserved the other Palacio hotel across the plaza. Much nicer facility. Our room, 211, had a limited view because of the restaurant exhaust fan. The noise and smells of the restaurant also made leaving the window open... More

I loved the comment I read that said it was "a little shabby in a genteel sort of way" -- this is a good description. It looks like an elegant hotel from a black and white movie. I had room 127 and felt like a principessa. Huge suite at least 4 times the size of the nice-sized room the bed... More

A wonderful, central location next to the cathedral and a grand building.Hotel car park too and a helpful reception. However, our bedroom was poor: peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets and fittings, chipped and scratched furniture, flaking bathroom ceiling and a faulty toilet cistern. Plus dingy lighting. Beds were clean though. Breakfast is totally self-service including cutlery and porcelain, some of which... More

Hotel is fine. Right in centre. Tired but in a genteel sort of way. Reception very helpful. Room perfectly adequate. But do not buy the dinner B&B option! Restaurant service is terrible. Waiters work hard to make you feel as if they are doing you a favour and you are disturbing their evening. Would stay at hotel again on a... More

The hotel is in the inner city so our our bus had to park outside and we had to walk about 1 km with our hand carry bags. There is a porter service avilable for a fee. Rooms are small. Air conditioners were not working and it was quite warm. The dinner was medieval with bread hard enough to use... More
