Location is in the pedestrian zone so there was some walking involved to get to the place. Upon arrival you are overwhelmed by the old world beauty of the building with exposed brick and beams. But its age is showing in the noisy, creaky floors and very old fashioned furniture that is just adequate for your needs. The room door... More

The hotel is clean, the rooms are confortable lovely scenery and the location was excellent for seeing the city on the centre of a beautiful medieval village. Staff wasn´t very friendly except a young waiter Jaimes.

Excellent location for those who love to stay in the middle of an classic old Spanish village (mainly 17-19th century buildings). Popular town for Spanish tourists, you won't meet a lot of other nationalities which according to my preference, helps keeping the classic Spanish atmosphere. It is 5-6 minutes walking to the public parking (€2 per day) but you can... More

I was a little bit disappointed while driving toward this small town, once got out from the highway (an enormous industrial chemical plant) but, once arrived, everything changed. Delicious, old, well preserved historical buildings town, clean, full of any kind of shops and life, without cars (not allowed)! The hotel: old spanish style, like all the sorroundigs. A big and...

The location of this hotel is right in the heart of town, and the policeman at the town's gate will let you drive up to drop off (and, later, pick up) your luggage. It is I suppose a Spanish equivalent of the Olde English country pub:all oakey beams and oil paintings and Jacobean type furnishings, and character-full lounges, and in... More

The Altamira hotel is planned as a small palace from middle ages. Amazing and stylish details add a lot of. Please, forget some natural troubles as floors creak or small windows. It is only a taste of ages. Staff is very nice and helpful. Breakfast unfortunately is very european but it is the life. Keep away from the restaurant. Their... More

Walking into this hotel was like stepping back in time. It has beautiful old wooden furniture, antiques and paintings. The staff were friendly, breakfast basic but good and the location great. We had a family room which was a good size with four single beds and a bathroom. Unfortunately, it was on the 3rd floor, with no view or window... More

This is a great hotel in a perfect location, but walls are very thin - you can hear every snore etc from adjoining rooms and as we were next to the main road it felt at times that people passing by we're actually in the room with us.

Staying in this hotel and town will remain a wonderful memory to revisit when my world gets too hectic. I was with a group of thirty people and we all wished we had more time to enjoy the uniqueness of this hotel with its sitting room, interesting nooks, passageways and the feeling of being in another time. Unfortunately it was... More
