The room was decent in size, very clean, nice tiles on the floor. Very comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Good service, nice staff, beautiful garden, great views from the hotel rooms. Situated in a quiet area, but close to all important landmarks.

We stayed one night at the end of a five day road trip to the region and found this hotel to be very poor in comparison to our other accommodations. Reception staff were not friendly, did not look as if they enjoyed their jobs. Our first room was very dark and claustrophobic, with just a small high level window onto... More

ParadorAvila, Gerente at Parador de Avila, responded to this review

Good morning First of all, thank you for sharing your opinion with us. As our Parador is established on a 16th century palace, also considering the protection of the Patrimonial Monument, some reconstructions are not allowed. But luckily, we do have a category of beautiful rooms with great view, for the next time, if you wanna book a different room,... More

The hotel was in a lovely location set in the city walls.It was very central to all the attractions of Avila.We did not have an evening meal in the hotel so we cannot comment on the food.The garden was very pleasant although our rooms did not overlook it.Avila is a lovely city with magnificent views all around.

Stayed in Paradores` most nights while visiting Spain. Great value for quality of hotels and service. Parador de Avila is within the city walls which is very convenient. The room was lovely, clean and one feels that they are part of history. The dining rooms are very nice as well - high ceilings and well decorated. We found the food... More

My friends and I had only one night to stay and explore Avila, and stayed at the Parador de Avila. What a great experience that was! The Parador is located right at the old town wall and it was wonderful to walk around the entire old town on the wall walk. The hotel was clean and very nice, including the... More

Beautiful large standard room overlooking the garden. The Paradore was a lovely interesting building filled with history. The Paradore is in and old palace within the town’s ancient walls and within easy walking distance of everything. Staff were friendly and helpful – although with limited English spoken. The only problem we had was in relation to parking – language misunderstanding... More

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
