I chose the Rua Villar because the manager/owner responds to every Trip Advisor comment. Now THAT is conscious, caring hospitality. We ended up spending our 3 nights in 3 different rooms do to our change of plans. First night: Room 22 which was THE BEST, second in Room 12 (lovely also), and the 3rd night in Room 14 (what can...

This beautiful hotel is literally metres from the Cathedral. Set in an historic building it has been beautifully renovated. Our room looked out to the spires of the cathedral complex.

The Hotel Rua Villar is only 100 metres from the side of the cathedral on an atmospheric street, an excellent location. It is a delightful 18th century manor house which has been sensitively restored with many original features including the floors.
