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.

Better than average paradors: good service overall, very quiet room with great views (we had a huge room in the tower – the only room on the top floor, looked more like a junior suite for optimal seclusion), excellent breakfast and great location. Double bed was too soft for our taste and was not very big - a strange situation... More

The Parador de Avila is ideally set within the old city walls. It is a luxury hotel set within a 16th century palace.The rooms are very comfortable with an ensuite bathroom. The restaurant serves good food. Avila boasts the only Cathedral that actually forms part of the city walls battlements. Avila is not far from Toledo or Madrid. For us... More

This Parador was another beautiful, historic castle building converted into a quaint hotel. The location was withing the walled city. The breakfast was great as always. The only negative thing about our stay here was the "miserable" guy at the front desk when we checked in. He must have taken his "nasty pills" just before we arrived.

Avila is a very popular tourist destination.. so lots of buses and traffic. The parador is inside the walls of the old town, but directions are well marked. It is easy to find. Unfortunately for older guests, or those with a disability, there are two sets of stairs going in to the lobby. Parking, if you are early enough is... More

we were welcomed at the upper end of Parador welcome standards and given lots of information about best things to see, itineraries and restaurants without having to ask. We had a tower room at the top which was a treat and great value given how little we paid. Location could not be better - easy to find, free parking right... More

This was our first stay in a parador. We arrived after driving for several hours through the mountains, and perhaps my wind blown appearance didn't warrant the receptionist's courtesy or attention because we were ignored for a good 5 or 10 minutes. The common areas of the parador are attractive, but the room was not in keeping with this. Decor... More

We stayed here with friends for just one night in July before moving on to Salamanca. It was the first time I had stayed in a Parador but it wont be my last if this is a guide. The rooms were clean and very comfortable, we all slept well in the peace and quiet. It is in a great location... More

This is far from being a bad hotel, but having come to expect something a bit special from the Paradors I was disappointed. The hotel website gives the impression that it is an historic building, but apart from an old tower it isn't really; though it is in a great location just inside the walls of Avila. The room was...
