I have been staying in paradores for nearly 60 years. The use of historic structure for hotels was pretty much originated with the paradores and this one is no exception. The parador of Avila combines a historica building with an excellent location, at one of the city gates nearby access to the historic walls of the city. Because the area...

As normal at paradores, spacious comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Spacious dining room looking out on gardens and the city walls. 10 minute to the city centre and the stunning cathedral which should not be missed.

Superb location within walled city,within walking distance of historical sights,shops and restaurants. Room overlooking garden was excellent and overall ambiance of hotel very good. One small complaint. It would be helpful if the Bar/Snack Bar could serve hot food from say 19.00 hrs instead of from 20.30 hrs, but when in Spain!!

Dear guest We do appreciate your sincere commentary towards our Parador, and we are glad to know that you´ve almost enjoyed your stay here with us. But Spain is so special and well known as its famous diferente serving time to the rest... Best regards.

We had a great experience, and considering you are staying at a historic location and for the price was an excellent choice. The building and grounds are gorgeous, within the walls of the City which are magnificent at night. You can walk to all attractions and city wall. The restaurant serving regional food was excellent. Nice garden, bar, and very...

We stayed for one night unaware that Paradors cater to large bus tours. Our free parking outside the entrance worked. The check-in desk staff did not tell us about possible discounts for the underground parking if we joined the Parador Amigos Club. The staff seemed resentful that we booked through Petrobax rather than Parador. The bar snacks and wine was...

Room was Okay but noisy owing to road.Breakfast ,you need to cut up the fruit in smaller pieces ! Dinner was not good especially the lamb... Parking was a small problem. Bar area probably needs more atmosphere.
