“Large rooms and perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

An historical building with interesting and effective arquitecture solutions as in their glass covered spaces. We were assigned a room without any external view, but a fairly silent one if it were not for a noisy spanish couple next door/wall. Their spacious rooms deserve a individual heath control (as most hotels we have stayed at, temperature is kept too high!) and their buffet breakfast is reasonably varied, even though offering the same alternatives everyday.

This hotel is very well located inside the city walls of Avila ..it has nice, comfortable, and clean rooms . Service was good. No complaints. Well preserved palace. Nice glass enclosed atrium perfect place to relax after a lot of walking . Breakfast was nothing exceptional. Parking available, however, limited. Avila is a beautiful place to visit, and Palacio de los Velada is a perfect place to stay. Highly recomended.

This hotel is quite beautiful for its price. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The staff were serviceable. Be careful which rooms you get. Those in the back on the street side are near where the street garbage for the street is maintained. All night locals are rustling the cans. The garbage collection trucks come very early in the morning, waking you up. I could also hear the mice/rats running around in the walls. The parking fee was 16 euros

Room Tip: Avoid street side rooms

This hotel is very well located in the centre of the old town with views, if you are lucky, of the cathedral. Elsewhere rooms have views of the reflective glass of the roof - not horrific but uninspiring.The building is historic but well maintained and incorporates a spectacular roofed patio.
Our room and its ensuite were of a good size and very clean. The bed was comfortable although there were too few pillows for my taste - more were cheerfully provided upon request.There was some disturbance from other rooms - water noise rather than conversation. Breakfast was the standard spanish buffet and the one dinner we had was fine, as was the lunchtime snack. Dining takes place in the covered patio, an undeniably striking piece of architecture, but to my taste, the size and acoustics of the room and nearby activity from open corridors, produced the ambience of a canteen rather than an intimate dining experience.
Service generally was cheerful and efficient. The exception was the lack of porterage after 7.30 which I felt was below par for a hotel of this type, and likewise the lack of laundry facilities at weekends.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Cathedral precincts are ideal if you want a striking outlook.

Wonderful conversion of a palace right opposite the cathedral. So easy to walk around this lovely city from here. Exceptionally helpful reception staff including warning me that I had left a car window open when parked in the garage.
Very quiet room overlooking the domed restaurant room. Shame the zircon had been switched off as it became very stuffy. Next time I would leave the french window open and the shutters part open.
Great place.

Room Tip: Go for n internally facing one on floor 2

Overall, the week I spent at Palacio de los Velad was pleasant. The room was nice and clean, and the staff very helpful. The breakfast was very good.
However, the lunch and dinner menus were repetitive and below the expectations.

Visited Avila after 2 nights in Madrid. Stayed here for 2 nights, and have to say it was simply perfect! The room was huge - excellent value for money! The double shutters in the room opened up to marvellous view of the cathedral. Lovely comfy armchairs to sit and watch the world go by! More pillows needed - arrived within minutes! The bathroom was bigger than our hotel room in Madrid! The hotel itself is charming. Peaceful and welcoming - the staff are polite and obliging. I would go back to Avila, simply to stay in this hotel again. For what we paid for 2 nights ....... would not get one night in a Travelodge in London .... can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Try for a room facing the cathedral ...
