“Great tourist location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Well located hotel close to the palace, cathedral and old part of Segovia. If you follow the hotel's directions to the parking to the exact letter you will not go wrong. The room was clean and comfortable but I found the water pressure in the shower very unreliable, possibly because I showered in "peak" times. The hotel reception staff were helpful but quite brusque and the breakfast was very very average. Instant coffee in Spain really? I asked for and got however, an espresso.

Room Tip: Follow parking directions exactly or pay the price in getting lost.

I booked this hotel mainly because of the high ratings here on Trip Advisor. I had a hard time getting to the hotel because even though my personal vehicle has the latest navigation system installed, the address of the hotel does not register. It is far better to get to the hotel in this way: Driving into the city from the main autoroute, you approach the large acqueduct which is impossible to miss. Do not pass under the acqueduct but rather, make a sharp right hand turn and ascend the hill heading in the direction of the Alcazar, which is marked with a white text on purple background sign. The Alcazar is well indicated. Follow those signs and what you end up doing is driving along the rim of the city, with splendid views which will make you want to pause and snap photos, we did. You pass the Alcazar on your right. Keep on the bend, or rather, do not turn left when you think you should! That was our mistake. Stay on the wall, curving around the end of the town and soon you will come to the hotel parking garage, which has a large wooden door and sign with the hotel name. Ring the buzzer and the front desk will open the door. If you were smart you would have made a reservation including a parking place. It is well worth it. We parked the van (the clearance is 2.4 meters) and did not touch the car for two days. Direct access to the rooms with the elevator. But, don´t just immediately hop out of your car and lug your bags into the elevator, because the elevator from the garage does not go all the way to reception. Go first to reception to check the location of your rooms before you get your bags. The hotel is lovely, we had rooms facing the valley/castle, rooms 104 and 105 and they were very nice. Our room had a large couch which was great for my after-lunch siesta. The garden is incredibly pleasant. This hotel is perfectly located to see all of the major sights in Segovia. If you follow the directions to the Alcazar and make your destination the hotel garage, and NOT the hotel, you will be fine and have no stress.

Room Tip: Request a room facing down onto the garden, they have a splendid view of the valley. If doors slammi...

I used Tripadvisor in putting together two great trips to Europe. The reviews were incredibly helpful, and I feel it’s only right to share our experience, so others can use it as well in planning their trip to Spain.

Nice modern Hotel, beautiful view of the Castle, but really noisy. The big wood doors of the rooms being slammed, and an over-exuberant maid cleaning the room next to us early in the morning, making sure the whole hotel should wake up. This was by far the nosiest hotel we stayed at during our 2 week trip to Spain. It’s definitely not for light sleepers. We mentioned it to the front desk during checkout, and they didn’t really appear to be concerned by our noisy stay.

Finding the hotel on the hill was a mess, as the streets are narrow, one way, old and not designed for cars. On top of this, the street in front of the hotel was closed for construction. The hotel has a parking garage on the lower level, which is nice and secure for 10 euro a night. It was stressful finding the place in the rental car. Things in Spain aren’t layed out well, like Germany or France.

It’s a beautiful hotel inside, and the patio over the castle is a really nice area to enjoy a bottle of wine. I’m just not sure I would stay here again. I don’t like overly noisy hotels, regardless of their Tripadvisor rating.

We booked a triple room last week for about 100e. The hotel is located a couple of minutes walk from the Alcazar. The town center is a 5 min walk. You should park near the alcazar and walk up to the reception since the road is closed for construction. As you check in , you can get instructions for more appropriate parking.

The hotel is clean, nicely done up with pleasant , modern decor. You enter at street level , which is really the 2nd floor since the hotel is built along the side of mountain/hill. Our room was 2 floors down, was good sized , comfortable and opened up onto a big terrace with a nice view of the countryside.

We parked in the underground garage ( level under our room) for a charge of 13e. I noticed that there was reasonable amount of public parking which should be free , at-least overnight.

I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Road to hotel is closed for repairs.

Hotel situated in a very very narrow road .Fortunately the hotel had emailed us the day before to say there was restoration work going on in the street so gave us directions to their garage ,which was much easier to find ,and to access the hotel .We had booked parking ,which I would recommend .The hotel is in a very good location close to the castle and the cathedral and that is why I have given it the rating I have .The hotel had a terraced garden which overlooked the castle and was very pleasant to sit in to relax ,picnic lunch and enjoy the view .Our room was a little disappointing as it was so dark with a very small window.My advise would be to ask for room overlooking the castle ,but we were only there for 2 nights and were out and about most of the time .If my stay had been longer I would have asked to change rooms .The a/c did not work so the room was very warm and the beds were very hard but I think that is a feature in Spain as every hotel we have stayed in on this trip has been the same .Breakfast was plentiful .Staff were helpful with information and restaurant suggestions .

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the castle .

Segovia's narrow streets are difficult to negotiate, but once located (after a few wrong turns), we found that the hotel is well placed in the old town centre, within walking distance of all major sites and restaurants. The underground parking is convenient, but needs to be reserved. The hotel is charming, some rooms overlooking a central well/patio, whilst others have magnificent views of the Alcazar and surrounding countryside - well worth paying extra for. The room was comfortable and clean, with spacious bathroom. The hotel has a genteel atmosphere, with lovely two-tier terrace for drinks and relaxation. There is a tiny bar and cafe/lounge area. Free WiFi. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.The buffet breakfast was copious, but on both days of our stay, there was nobody around to ask for replenishment of items. The scrambled egg container was empty, but neither removed nor refilled.This is a minor criticism and did not detract from what was a very pleasant stay. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Alcazar.

We arrived in Segovia via auto from Madrid on April 22 2013. Construction on the facade of the building across from the hotel changed the driving pattern on the streets around the hotel but we were able to park close enough to walk to the hotel. The desk person started to give us directions to the garage but then suggested a fellow staff member drive our car there due to the construction. We had two vehicles for our party of six and were happy to have assistance as we never would have found the garage. All three of our rooms overlooked the back terrace and the Alcazar. They were quite comfortable and very quiet. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in Segovia and would definitely recommend and stay at this hotel on any future visit. The breakfast was much better than we had anticipated. We bought bread cheese and wine and enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the patio.
