“good accomodations at an excellent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2009

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.

I would warmly endorse the views of the two previous reviewers. I thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay at the Hosteria Las Cancelas in May and wished that I could have stayed longer, as there is so much of interest to see in Avila. The location, literally in the shadow of the mighty Catedral and the imposing walls, still miraculously inrtact, could hardly be better. I paid 52 Euros for a single room, inclusive of all taxes and breakfast, which I was happy to pay, even though I'm sure there are cheaper options in the city centre. I was very pleased with my room - spacious and well-furnished with attractive lighting - and the bathroom was equally spacious and well-equipped (with both bath and bidet and ample supplies of hot water). I slept very well indeed and there was no noise from the traffic-free street below (the hotel is situated with the pedestrian-only zone of Avila). I found the staff pleasant and helpful; there was an inexplicable mix-up with my bill, which was promptly and efficiently corrected when I pointed out the error - and they were profusely apologetic, so I don't think that the were trying to rip me off!. The breakfast was unexceptional, rather surprisingly for a hotel which appears to have built up a reputation for fine dining. I thought that the menu for lunch/dinner, though mouthwatering, was a touch over-priced, so opted to eat elsewhere. The main dining area is splendid, with lots of wonderful period touches dating back to the 15th century. All in all, I felt that I had made a good choice and I would certainly return to Las Cancelas and recommend it wamly

We stayed in this hotel in May 06 at the start of a cycling holiday. It was a lovely hotel in a very old building. The walls were fabulously thick and windows were high and narrow...it was a real piece of history. Having said that, all the facilities were spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fine, the beds were comfy. Avila's a great little town and the location of this hotel was excellent. The other thing was that the hotel easily found secure bike parking which was much appreciated.

We have stayed in Las Cancelas for one night. It is in the historic centre of Avila, a few steps from the Cathedral and the main shopping streets.
We have booked a triple room witch was very spacious, clean and comfortable! The bathroom was also very clean and had a hairdryer.
The staff was kind and helpful.
This is a charming place to stay in Avila. Only 9 rooms with a fantastic restaurant! We had one dinner in the Hotel. The food was delicious (good choice and excellent food quality) and the service very efficient.
They have some spaces to park the car near the hotel.
The breakfast was included but it was a little bit basic (coffee, milk, bread, butter, jam and natural yoghurt if you ask for).
Avila is a lovely town and worth a visit! We would like to stay one more night!!!
