The hotel was almost full of young chess players because the Spanish chess team championships under 14 and 16 years old were held in Avila.
Therefore none of the participants had to pay for the hotel and we all had a full board. Some of them were lucky and got into the "good rooms". My team and I got the standard rooms, we had to share a twin room between three so I had to sleep in an extra bed (which was not that comfortable as the other two).
Something I really liked about the hotel was the staff, the waiters were extremely nice and very friendly and one of the receptionists was very attentive.
On the day of our arrival it was very warm so we quickly went to the reception and asked where the swimming pool was, so when we heard there wasn't one we where very shocked.
I liked the terraces because there was a fantastic view of the city's wall.
The hotel was not that far away from the entrance of the wall, maybe a 10 minute walk.More
