“Great Value Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel II Castillas Avila for two nights in early January, 2012. It was right of the highway going into Avila and made a great base for touring the sites northwest of Madrid (Avila, Segovia, El Escorial, Valley of the Fallen, Salamanca). It is located outside of town next to a very large suburban shopping mall (with a Carrefour Grocery) and is NOT within walking distance to the center of Avila. We had a car so this was not a problem. However, there is VERY frequent bus service at a stop (Escuela De Policia) directly across the street from the hotel in front of the mall. Bus # 1, 3 or 4 will take you downtown. DON'T take buses 5 or 6. Coming back take any bus marked Escuela De Policia which are numbers 1, 3, 4 and 5. Now about the hotel. First off the doors to check in are on a one-way service road facing the highway. So when you turn off the highway at the roundabout and go in toward the mall make a very quick right onto this road. It's only a one lane but it gets virtually no traffic so it was not a problem. They have a garage and charge a nominal fee of 5 euros a day but there is plenty of parking about so unless you have some particular worry, no reason to spend the extra money. We parked directly in front of the office by going up the curb and using the median strip as was suggested to us. The hotel itself was modern, spotlessly clean with a really large room. (We were a party of two adults and a 7 year-old). The price was incredibly reasonable and this hotel really provides unbelievable value for your money. The staff was friendly and multi-lingual. They buffet breakfast was also great at under 10 euros per person and the 7 year old was free (something which we really appreciated as it normally is a deal breaker for us when hotels want to charge our son a full adult price). We didn't use their restaurant / Cafe for other meals so we can't provide information on that. One thing worth mentioning was the shower which we had no idea how to operate (all kinds of jets and sprays and looked like something out of a science fiction movie). Fortunately there were instructions on the bathroom sink so we got everything to work. There was no tub, however, for those who might have need of that.

Nice quiet hotel with great staff and excellent facilities. Clean and well kept. Next to a shopping center. Safe part of town. Highly recommend this place. Wifi could be better, but we were at the end of the hallway.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2008

Driving into Avila from Segovia this modern hotel caught our eye. We were quoted a very competative figure for the room and decided to stay. The room had a faint smell of cigarete smoke and when we went back to reception and told them they immediately gave us another room. The rooms were large with a seperate sitting area. The reception staff told us how to get into the town centre and where to park our car. We had a lovely time in the city that night and returned to the hotel with the aid of the very good map we had been given. Breakfast was good and served in a rooftop resteraunt.
