Las Cancelas is a very good choice for anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the very heart of historic Avila. We spent 2 nights here in autumn of 2008. The hotel is in an old building on a narrow street. It's just a short walk in one direction to the cathedral. An even shorter walk in the other direction will take you to one of the entrances which give you access to the medieval walls. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the charming lady at the front desk in the mornings. We chatted a couple times in Spanish.
Our room was not luxurious, but it was spacious, quiet, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The furniture was dark, antique style. The atmosphere of the room was perhaps a bit spartan, but it seemed appropriate in this fortress city of churches and convents.
