"Don't waste your money."
There is no wifi although it is prominently advertised. This is a Very tired old hotel. Well located but not worth the money. Rooms are small, bathtub chipped, wallpaper peeling. A big disappointment.

"Bad Night in Avila"
The bed was much too firm and led to a poor night's sleep. There was no bar in the hotel. The Staff were friendly and very helpful.

"Hotel muy antiguo, descuidado e impropio de 4 *"
En la habitación no funcionaba la calefacción, tuvimos que cambiarnos a otra. La puerta del cuarto de baño no cerraba, se quedaba abierta. La puerta del pasillo no tenia cerrojo. El garaje era de tierra, al aire libre, no tenía luz, tenias que ir a recepción a por la llave y después ir a devolverla. Había que abrir la puerta manualmente y al cerrarla como la puerta no llegaba al suelo, me golpee el talón del pie y esto valía 10€ diarios.

"HOTEL TRÈS CENTRAL POUR LA VISITE DE AVILA"
HOTEL BIEN SITUE ET TRES CORRECT. Par contre le parking st vraiment sommaire. Il a simplement l'avantage d'être fermé. beaucoup de poussière!!!! Il pourrait .etre bien amélioré Le restaurant serait bien mais tout est clos, les fenêtres sont présentes mais toutes occultées. Il ne faut pas être claustrophobe. C'est dommage !!!

"A very quick stay"
04/10/16 Clive S Sydney, Australia
I wanted to look inside the hotel so as to make up my mind to stay or not. The reception I was received was poor and a little rude. No you cannot enter the hotel as I may disturb the guests. Very strange attitude. Anyway I went across the square to "Palacio de losVelada". I was so Impressed by this hotel I booked immediately and am now staying 6 days.

"Great location"
01/01/16 Hadzi Madri
Top location in front of the Murallas and the Cathedral. You can also drive your car to the door if for loading and unloading. The hotel is spacious with long hallways and many rooms. The value was decent (53 euros per night via Booking) and the rooms were OK (except for the stains of ceiling leaks and possible humidity). The rooms are noisy coming from the hallway, cleaning staff and the other rooms which you easily hear. The cleaning staff even enter if you have a do not disturb tag on the door. The reception staff are OK but not too friendly. I would recommend a room facing the Cathedral if I return.

"Good hotel next to Cathedral"
11/30/15 Elvis2006 Valencia
This hotel is very central for the old town in Avila. Our bedroom window overlooked the Cathedral. It is also very convenient for access to the old town wall. The hotel has fairly modern rooms and bathrooms. The price was reasonable compared to others near by. The rooms were very quiet as was Avila in March.

"Great hotel"
10/22/15 Manzarra Fatima, Portugal
This is a great hotel, the location couldn't be better adjoining the cathedral and facing the cathedral square. The entrance is very beautiful, with nicely decorated rooms. The rooms are ok and the bathroom is fine. The food is above average.

"A dissappointment"
09/12/15 Fay G
Rating this hotel as 3 star is a gift for them. Additionally, the pictures in the slide show don't reflect the room we had. This hotel is wonderfully located and looks appealing on the ground floor but the room itself was drab, small, with a bathroom door that barely opened since the door hit the tub. The tub was chipped, the wallpaper was peeling, discolored and very importantly for us, the WiFi was non-existent although they acted as though the "problem" was being resolved. No one told us that we were arriving during a festival that closed the city to vehicles, so we were forced to leave our car in a lot and drag suitcases through the cobbled streets through the throngs of people. The last straw was at check out, the desk clerk claiming we hadn't paid for the room. Fortunately, I had my reservation confirmation clearly stating it was paid in full through hotels.com. Not at all a pleasant experience although the city itself and the sites are outstanding!

"Good hotel, great price-quality balance "
08/24/15 mazoalex Madrid, Spain
We've been in several hotels in Ávila, to me this one offers the best balance for quality & price. Located inside the wall, near the most important monuments to visit, and also from the bars, restaurants and even night life. Recently renewed (haven't seen it before that).

When we arrived at this hotel having had an amusing experience with the Taxi driver in Salamanca (caused by a misunderstanding in language) I thought we had got it wrong again. This could not be the hotel we had booked far too upmarket I thought. I was only sure as we walked in the front door by the fact that it was right next to the cathedral. The receptionist was very apologetic that our room was not yet available (we didn't expect it to be) and having confirmed it was a double bedded room we required he carried out the necessary paperwork and asked for thirty minutes to prepare the room for us and took our luggage for safe keeping whilst we explored. On our return we were given the key to our room and passing two beautiful salons on a stained glass window corridor we ascended to the second floor and our room. Slightly smaller room and bed than in our previous hotel in Salamanca. Not hard as that was huge but more than sufficient for our need. Comfortable bed and no problem with temperature of the room. The room overlooked the cathedral door and there was no problem with noise. Could watch the nesting storks from the window. Good central position for amenities. Beautiful town where we walked the walls, a must do. Ate some lovely meals and generally relaxed in our room and the plush salons of this lovely hotel. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss with replenishments and clearing of tables taking a little time. All in all though a lovely hotel with pleasant and helpful staff.

"Disappointed!"
06/28/15 WARREN W
We are a family of 6; arrived in Avila without any hotel reservations on Saturday afternoon. We took 2 rooms in this hotel with 3 beds each. The rooms were well decorated, clean and spacious enough. The beds were pretty typical of Spain; firm with basic linens, not plush. Disappointed that the air conditioners in both rooms didn't cool. This meant opening the window to the inner space to try to cool the room over night (both rooms!) The wi-fi crapped out as well. Now, after reading some reviews, these are recurring issues. Great location but below average comfort and amenities drags down the ratings.

"Palacio Valderrabanos"
06/03/15 CBNewry Rochdale, United Kingdom
A very pleasant room in the hotel which was situated next to the Cathedral. It took us several attempts at driving to the hotel before we gave up, parked outside the walls and walked to the hotel. Parking was a problem - to stay in the car park recommended by the hotel would have cost 30 euros whereas to park outside the walls cost just 1 euro for 24 hours. The only drawback to this was that you then had to haul your luggage up to the hotel. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable but the air conditioning was not very effective and the room became rather warm. Check out was somewhat annoying as the only obvious member of staff on duty left the desk to attend to some workmen and we were left standing for several minutes despite a female member of staff working behind the scenes.

"A Palace in Avila"
05/26/15 Paynterman Accrington, United Kingdom
Beautiful Hotel in excellent location right in the middle of the wonderful town of Avila. Huge bedroom with large comfortable bed and big bathroom. Ideally situated for sightseeing and diningout. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. Not easy to find as it is within the city walls and access is via one of the city gates which if you are in a big car can be a little daunting as the gates are very narrow. Having said that the hotel is well worth a visit.
