“A highlight of our trip”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

This hotel isn't much to look at from the outside, but it is a gem. The rooms are simple but very nice, with good beds and perfectly adequate bathrooms. It is in the corner of the lovely Plaza Grande. The new management is very friendly and helpful. If you don't stay here at least come to eat in the restaurant. The food is fabulous! The new young chef is going to go far! Apparently, he won this year's competition for the best tapas in town. One of the best meals of our entire trip!

My Spanish friends often remind me that the Spanish star system for hotels refers to amenities and not to a quality. My experience, however, has been that it is a rare one star hotel that is not a dump. This is that rare one star hotel!!!! The rooms are small but clean, comfortable and quaint. The beds were comfortable with newer mattresses, good sheets and serviceable towels. The hotel sits on the Plaza Grande at the center of the medieval city and you can easily walk to all of the sites. The staff of the hotel was quite friendly and helpful. I am not sure how good or bad their English is. When ever someone in town asked us where we were staying I would say the Plaza Grande. They always replied that it is a great hotel. It is in an old building so things can be a bit noisy and yes in a Spanish town the church bells strike the hour and half-hour. So if you want a comfortable hotel at a one star price, this is your place.

This small hotel sits right on the plaza grande of the town of Zafra. It is a great location, right off of the main pedestrian-only shopping street. The hotel definitely has some charm. The rooms a quirky, the place is clean. However, the bells from the nearby cathedral ring on the quarter-hour from 8 a.m. until midnight (not that anyone in Spain is in bed before midnight anyway. But if you happen to like to sleep earlier... take note. The noise from the halls also travels and is easily heard in the rooms. But it is comfortable and affordable.

Room Tip: To lower noise levels, get a room away from the elevator. While a plaza view is nice, for sound you...

We had a really friendly welcome and were lucky to be given rooms 108 and 208 - the best in the hotel overlooking the Plaza even though we were only staying one night. Parking was easy in the Plaza nearby, though it was metered parking. The hotel is excellent value and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are not large but so full of character and beautifully decorated. We ate dinner at the hotel on the terrace at the side of the Plaza - we decided to order 4 different raciones to share and each dish came beautifully presented as 4 individual portions per plate. It tasted delicious and was extremely good value. It was lovely to wander around the old town in the evening.

Room Tip: Rooms 108 or 208 are the ones to go for. 108 has balcony windows and small terrace overlooking the P...
