This is a lovely hotel. Just inside the city walls, which are the main attraction of the town. We used their parking facilities at extra charge. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We had food in both the cafe and restaurant and enjoyed all the food. The patio is a lovely place to have a drink - lovely and... More

The location, even when inside the walls, is a little distant from the historic center. The garden area is beautiful and would have been nice to sit and have a drink but the tables did not have any umbrellas and the sun and heat made it impossible to enjoy the area. The hotel was beautiful, specially the garden area.

We have visited some paradores but this one really tops the "get lost... in the hotel" price.The wonderful city of Avila with its wall surroundings is a must see. The hotel and its rooms are perfect for this visit. Well situated, parking, good service (got even serviced in Dutch by 2 trainees from Holland), wonderful location, etc. Don't hesitate, Avila...

This is a lovely hotel. We arrived the day after the Brexit vote and Emilio on reception joked with us that we would have to surrender our Amigos card as the UK had voted to leave the EU!

The parador is located on the inside of this beautiful walled city so that everything can already be visited on foot. The underground car park you have to book but also requires driving skills because it is small (10 seats). There is no air conditioning in the rooms but given this town lies at 1100 meters altitude is usually not... More

As with all paradores, this is an ancient property reformatted as a luxury hotel inside the storied walls of Avila. The rooms are large, by European standards, and excellently outfitted. Comfortable beds with soft and firm pillows, more than enough electrical outlets, desk space, etc. Service is outstanding, and the sense of being welcome is manifest! Parking is available (no...

Wonderful situation just inside the old city walls. Within walking distance of old town, plaza mayor where there are many restaurants serving lovely tapas and good wine at reasonable prices. Hotel comfortable bedrooms, limited car parking available. Enjoyable dinner. Breakfast poor. Unlike other Paradors no effort was made to keep the breakfast bacon or eggs hot..... !
