Our first parador visit was not really special,reception was not friendly at all. No explanation of restaurant, complaining our luggage was heavy. Also the food is not very refined, rather simple. Portions are just too big.

As an Architect I am always searching for hotels that are historic. Most of the Paradores of Spain fit the bill. This one has a courtyard and a great view of a beautiful exterior gardens. Rooms are clean and comfortable . Very attentive staff ! provided orientation and suggestions of the area. Would not hesitate in going back.

The walled city of Avila is a stunning place and the parador is in an excellent location. Infact we could see our bedroom window when we walked the walls. As this was a big birthday we booked a suite for 3 nights. The room was lovely and spacious , so much so that we had to leave the light on... More

Stayed here for just one night, arriving early evening. First impressions were very good, reception staff extremely helpful and polite. We had no problem finding the parador via Sat -Nav parking proved easy too, I can understand though at busier times the opposite could apply. The room we had overlooked the garden, was of a good size and the bathroom... More

Lovely building and situated right on wall. Our second Parador stay and slightly disappointed with this one. Another very large room but dark with only a view to modern rooftop next door. The air-conditioning doesn't begin until June and our room was very warm. Difficult parking in paid garage. A little overpriced.

Of all the ( many) historic Paradors I have visited, this one probably comes bottom of the list. Yes, the rooms are clean and reasonably modern but the hotel itself was of little interest. I had booked months in advance and arrived early afternoon so I thought I might get a good room but no. My room overlooked the car... More

The Parador has a good location close to one of the gates of this impressive walled city but lacks a bit the atmosphere, style and feeling of old age luxury so typical of most of the other paradors we have stayed in. The breakfast had a very limited selection even for a Spanish hotel, but the price was somewhat lower... More

So we chose this hotel because every other one we wanted was booked. I am so glad they weren't available as this was a great find. Our room was large with twin four poster beds (never seen that before). The old monetary had been amazingly converted and it is truly stunning. Service is great, breakfast amazing and bar we stocked.... More

Robust, authentic. Entering the gate of this old castle like building, you are met by a night in armour (wearing a skirt underneath his steel). I felt a real manly knight. Most staff friendly. Had some discussions with a gentleman because the hotel couldn't provide an iron?!

What can I say... One beautiful double room for 2 people with excellent breakfast and great dinner included: 140 euro. Charming hotel (it is a Middle Ages building reconverted into hotel), excellent service, cute city... you can never be disappointed when staying at a Parador.
