"Great hotel in Avila"
This is a very chic and original hotel with great covered patios. And well positioned next to the cathedral and close to the beautiful Avila wall. The rooms are very comfortable. Only minus was the staff, who was not very friendly :(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only way to see Avila is to stay inside the wall. This hotel makes the experience especially wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough for 1 night stay"
This hotel locates in a great area of town and right across from the town cathedral. The hotel itself is beautiful and big. We didn't have dinner there but breakfast was good. A bit pricey but they have good buffet selection. Note that after certain hours there will not be room services. If you need anything you will have to go down to front desk to […] get it. Receptionists were friendly enough. The best thing about this hotel is location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Palacio Fit for a King?"
This hotel used to be a palace; you can't tell from all of the rooms (I wasn't, unfortunately, in one of the spectacular ones they posted on their website), but you can tell from the general ambiance and common spaces. Not all rooms are wheelchair accessible, as a result of the palace's strange layout, but the hotel has done a great job installing ramps, […] lifts, and automated doors in the common spaces. The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever seen, and for a small town such as Ávila, I find that exceptional. Service in the Cloister restaurant was not top notch, but slow service and long meal-times are Spanish cultural mainstays, so I can't fault that: just don't head down if you're hungry and want to order right away. The staff was, otherwise, very friendly and helpful, with good English language skills. My room was lovely, quiet, and comfortable: the "king" bed was actually two singles pushed together with the sheets tucked in separately under the comforter. Velada is right next to the cathedral and near plenty of local landmarks and eateries, and the bus station is only a 15 minute walk away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Palacio de los Velada a Must Stay"
Beautifully refurbished medieval mansion with excellent location and services A must stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Top notch service and perfectly situated hotel"
The Palacio de los Velada is a delightfully apportioned and situated hotel slap bang in the heart of Avila old town; in fact it pretty much 'is' the old town, with its surprisingly pretty central courtyard among the city's finest. I was amazed by the service I received from check-in staff, including being allowed to check-in to my room at 10:30am, offered […] more in-room toiletries/stationery than you'd typically expect in these austere times and an overall lovely room that somehow melds modern decor with period touches perfectly. My only niggles are that Wi-fi internet is somewhat limited (in my case I couldn't stray more than 10m from reception and retain signal) and the breakfast buffet could have offered more hot options, but otherwise I have little to fault the Velada on.

"Very good and clean"
Overall very good. Clean and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is very well located & beautiful inside, especially the inside courtyard. Food & drink not overpriced. Overall very nice. On the negatives, the breakfast was very disappointing with little choice & parking cost 16 euros per night. Probably would return though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Un palais pour dormir"
Super situé dans les remparts de la ville cet hôtel est un régal, Patio aménagé soit en salon ou en resto selon les heures, Chambres super propres et silencieuses , un accueil sympathique et même en français le seul bémol c'est parquer sa voiture soit a l’extérieur des remparts ou dans le parking payant de l’hôtel mais les places sont réduitesGenuine Hotels.com guest review

O hotel é bom, bem localizado, bonito e limpo. Mas o atendimento da recepção é frio e sem preocupação em agradar. O hotel estava vazio e pedi um late check out, e náo me foi oferecido nem 1 minuto. O quarto da reserva nao tinha janelas, so uma iluminação zenital. Para fazer upgrade para outro quarto a tarifa dobrou em relação á que havia sido paga no […] Hoteis.com.

"Correcto y maravillosamente ubicado"
Este hotel puede ofrecer precios tan asequibles con buena calidad de habitaciones e instalaciones, en mi opinión gracias a una buena gestión y a una estrategia no-nonsense (todo lo superfluo eliminado). El baño no es lo más moderno, pero es correcto, con todos los complementos esperables y el tamaño de la habitación fue correcto sin ser espaciosa. El […] hotel cuenta con cientos de habitaciones, y las fotos que ponen lógicamente son de las más especiales, que se tiene pocas probabilidades de obtener, pero con todo la estancia tranquila, agradable y todo en perfecto orden.

"Tolle Lage in nostalgischem Palais"
Eine bessere Lage ist in Avila nicht zu finden. Das Hotel ist ein altes Palais und liegt direkt gegenüber der Kathedrale hinter der beeindruckenden Stadtmauer. Die Zimmer sind schön eingerichtet, teilweise schon etwas verwohnt. Leider war unser Zimmer nicht gut geputzt und auch auf den Teppich im Hotelflur lagen große Staubnester. Dies sollte einen […] aber nicht abschrecken im Hotel einzuchenken, weil das Ambiente wirklich toll ist. Nicht zu empfehlen ist das Restaurant im Hotel. Wir hatten zweimal das Special 3- Gänge Menü, weder die Fisch- noch die Fleischvariante war bekömmlich. Mir war sogar schlecht danach. Das Frühstück hatten wir nicht gebucht, daher kann ich dazu nichts berichten. In der Nähe des Hotels (ca. 20m) gibt es öffentliche Parkplätze auf denen man Sonn- und Feiertags kostenlos parken kann.

"Parecia ser Melhor"
O Atendimento é ruim. Pessoas mal educadas, sem paciência e de má vontade ( em 12 dias de Espanha, foi o único atendimento assim). O Hotel tem uma certa atmosfera, mas parecia ser melhor. Quarto apertado, café da manhã mediano, pela sua localização e pompa, poderia fazwer bem mais pelos clientes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastica ubicacion. patio maravillosoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Me he hospedado en hoteles que decían ser 5 estrellas que no eran ni remotamente tan buenos como este. Excelente ubicación, atención del personal muy cordial y la decoración muy bien. Lo único malo es que las paredes son muy finas y se oye a los vecinos al menor ruido. (por suerte tuvimos vecinos silenciosos)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Habitaciones que dan a la calle"

"Edificio histórico perfectamente situado y cumple"
Las 4 estrellas son un poco de tiempos pasados necesita una al pequeña remodelación para alcanzar de verdad esas 4 estrellas, pero el hotel en general es muy bueno y el precio es bajo. La situación es excepcional, es salir por la puerta y chocarte con la catedral. El patio como todos comentan es magnifico aunque lo pagas si tomas algo (sin pasarse). […] En recepción amables. Muy acogedor y tranquilo. Las camas y almohada mejorables. En cuanto al ruido, nos dieron una habitación a la parte de atrás con vistas bastante feas (por una obra, ya que en la zona no hay vistas feas) pero sin ningún ruido y además con vecinos comedidos por lo que no tuve problemas con este tema pero si que parece que tiene las paredes finas. El wi-fi grafis. El parking y el restaurante no los utilicé. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful restoration, charming"
07/22/14 RichLasPalmas LAS PALMAS
Not a palace in the British sense so don't expect Buckingham! Non the less this modern hotel is built around a traditional Avilan palace. Sympathetic job in a good location to explore this lovely town. We had a brilliant time, it was exceedingly cold while we were there -7! But the hotel was warm and welcoming. Only thing that spoiled it was the weekend disco beneath our room very noisey and late! I think most of the rooms are modern additions and are a bit "chain hotel"," try and get a room in the old building if you want charm in your room. There are a couple of tower rooms that looked great.
"A very pleasant stay"
07/11/14 richlandon Manchester, United Kingdom
I stayed in this hotel in June as part of a group of 5 friends. reception area very good and main bar area stunning with three storey arched walls as a backdrop. Rooms very comfortable although would have liked a view. Only had a small high window so felt a little claustrophobic. Could not get the safe to work either. it may have been that you had to pay at reception so didn't bother. Mini bar in room with fridge which was good. Breakfast was excellent, fresh cooked products brought out all the time and the hotel seemed very quiet. No outside bar area which was a little disappointing but overall a much better hotel and breakfast than one of a similar star rating in Salamanca which was much more expensive.
"Lovely hotel in a beautiful city"
06/26/14 marya7 Northland
This hotel is everything needed on a touring holiday. There is an underground car park and a good breakfast with plenty of choice. The elegant central patio is enclosed so it can be enjoyed at any time. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment on that. The room was of a good size (so we could both open our cases at the same time) and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is situated opposite the cathedral and near the city wall, so well placed to get to everything and good value for money.
"Romantic setting in a medieval city"
06/24/14 Angibu Dublin, Ireland
The hotel is located within the walls, right in the cathedral square. This repurposed palace is full of charm, where you can enjoy dinner or a drink in the comfortable glass-roofed courtyard and never want to leave. The food was nice and a good plentiful buffet breakfast if you are willing to pay 12€. Which is fine considering the room was only 50€. Absolutely great for a setting like this. This hotel, as with the city of Avila, will always be a special place to which we hope to return soon.
"lost my camera bag and am desperate to get back my memory stick"
06/24/14 RichLandon1967 Manchester, United Kingdom
I stayed in this hotel on Sat 21st June and Sun 22nd June. I will write a seperate review later but on the Sunday, I was taking photos with a tripod and put down my camera bag either in the main bar area or on one of the corridors on the 1st or 2nd floor. I went out to dinner nearby and later discovered I had left it behind. I went back to the hotel and it was nowhere to be found. I asked at reception but nothing handed in. There was a 4gb memory stick in the side pocket which has hundreds of photos taken in Salamanca the two days previous and I am absolutely desperate to get it back. There are photos on this stick which are priceless to me and irreplacable. if anyone reading this knows the whereabouts of this I would be extremely grateful if it could be posted back to me. I m not bothered about the little camera inside (although there is a 2gb memory stick in that too which i would like back) or the case and other contents but I would be so grateful to get my memory sticks back. Please post them to me at 47 Shaw Hall Bank Road, Greenfield, Oldham, OL3 7LD, England. I am so desperate for them I am even posting this message here. thank you. Richard
"fantastic location historical building right by the Great Wall"
06/23/14 Argentinaexpert23 Reston VA
location could not be beaten, you are inside the walled ancient city with the amazing wall surrounding it. see the wall at nigh BTW while swallows flit around it. The hotel is large, sometimes over-run by tourists in large groups. Lovely indoor patios Breakfast only so-so, stick w the coffee and croissant choice, cheaper and a better value, than the full breakfast. Room was functional, moderately quiet and clean. Nothing special about the room good WIFI
"Great location, beautiful facade but rooms a bit tired"
06/03/14 Alison H London, United Kingdom
Palacio de los Velada was once a genuine Palace and although it's in a great location just within the City walls of Avila I think it needs some tlc. The public areas are grand and impressive but the accommodation itself the bedroom and bathroom are old fashioned and in need of repair as well as redecoration. The staff were quite officious, and although we enjoyed the city we did feel as if we were constantly being ripped off as tourists! This part of the country is also quite cold in May.
"In the heart of the old town"
05/30/14 iwonab London, United Kingdom
We stayed in Palacio de los Velada one night while traveling around Madrid. It was a bit tricky to find the hotel as it is situated within pedestrianised area of the old town and we were not sure if we were allowed to drive in there. Confirming that with hotel we parked in their underground parking for a fee. We realised later that there is another parking option near by- public underground parking just outside the city wall but I'm not sure what's the price difference. On entering the Palacio we were very impressed with beautiful courtyard where the restaurant and seating area were based. It gave an impression that you were seating outside in the sun as it has great see through roof cover with the canvas to pull over like a sun parasol if the sun was too hot. This and the location were the main features we enjoyed about the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable but it overlooked the top of that roof mentioned before leaving not a great deal of a view. We didn't use any other hotel facilities as we preferred to stay outside and explore the town so I can't say anything about the food, but the restaurant looked quite busy whenever we passed so it may be an indication of the good quality. The only upsetting thing I can mention was the unfriendliness of our receptionist on our arrival and on departure other than that we had a very pleasant stay.
"history with confort- catolic hotel"
05/27/14 AnaMariaCristina Bucharest, Romania
We went there only for ine night, the location is great just across the Cathedral. it was a small issue concerning the parking place but the historical flavor of the building made us accept it! it is charming, the atrio is pleasant and made me dream about ancient pilgrims ! breakfast is good, spanish ! catolic hotel if I may say ...
"Very good 4*, nearly perfect"
05/10/14 AdalbertMonticelli Prague, Czech Republic
Location is great. Great hotel in 16 th century pallais. The lobby/ café / restaurant is just perfect solution for a inner yard challenge. My room was spacious and spotless, with fully equiped marble bathroom. TV set had CNN and other english speaking channels on the list, whats quite rare here for some reason. AC was probably working, given the noise ( it was within limits) but temperature in the room was quite high anyway. Breakfast was perfect, served in another great interieur. They served not only usual international / continental / british stuff, but local specialities as well.I have eaten outside, so no comments on the restaurant performance. I was sipping a glas of average Rioja later in the evening (11 ish). Price was ok - 2,5 € - but the glas was really ugly. Never heard of Riedel and its copies? Parking fee is insolence ad personam. 17€ per day is ridiculous, given you have almost no other options. Here is room for improvement. The lift is making funny noise, but what would you expect in a 500 years old pallace :-) . Overall, it was very good experience.
