I seem to be fervently in the minority here in my opinions of this establishment, so I will try and keep to facts, which should allow the reader to hopefully make an informed judgement of his/her own.
This is not what I consider to be a true Hotel. It is a private furnished residence owned by a Spanish dignitary type who now resides in Madrid but returns to Trujillo once a month to check on his abode. At the time we were there, he was paying a young, pleasant but grossly inexperienced young man ( who speaks no English but is fluent in French and Arabic) to check people in and take their money, with the help of a cleaning lady and a young gardener/odd job man.
Whilst the historic significance and architectural splendour of such a building cannot be denied, the inside tells a rather different story with a dusty and eclectic mishmash of suits of armour, crumbling bookcases and sinister looking chandeliers! Clearly this is to some peoples' tastes, but alas not mine!
We had a supposedly superior room which was clean but very basic and had a mosaic patterned small bathroom which was more in keeping with a 2 star Hotel. We did have a separate lounge with a sofa and armchairs, but I'm afraid for me it was far too personalised to be pleasant. The scores of books which the owner has left in the bookcases are eclectic dust catchers with subjects ranging from Fidel Castro and fairy tales through to football!
We found it all somewhat dark and spooky and with the amount of wood around I wouldn't recommend it to anybody paranoid about fires!
The price we felt was relatively expensive and it should be noted that for anybody with mobility problems, the walk to the main square and back could prove a little steep.
Trujillo is beautiful and relatively undiscovered, so I would recommend a visit but would suggest this Hotel is avoided for all - other than diehard fans of the Addams family .....
