    The carpets are old and dirty and smell awful, the room wasn't clean luckily there was a window to open. The beds were not comfortable. Nothing in the room, the tv is ancient. Not like it was described and expensive for what it was. I Wouldn't stay again

    Great location right next to the walls, easy access to tourist attractions, staff very friendly and helpful.

    The only window in the room was a skylight and the room was overlooked by people passing on top of the historic wall. The bar next door also played loud music for most of the day/evening.

    The location is great, and the room was very spacious and clean.

    Parking space is scarce and expensive within the walls (stop & drop luggage in front of hotel, then find cheaper or even free parking space outside the walled city) Breakfast rather basic Small room (I was alone, but the room had a double bed, so intended for two), almost no space for a suitcase

    Conveniently located within the walled city in the ‘monuments corner’ (Cathedral etc.) Rooms on the (quieter) backside have a terrace, front side rooms have a balcony (and the noise of rather fast traffic over the cobble stones) Comfortable bed Helpful staff

    Enjoyed our stay here. Super convenient for exploring this historic city. Only downside is lack of parking, but street parking is not far and very cheap. (Free mid day and evenings.).Makes a great stopover if your travelling from north to the Med. Recommend you brush up your spanish as English is a bit limited.

    • Group

    It doesn't have A/C, and while this is not a problem in Avila, where it's always cool or cold at night and you can open the window to cool off your room, there's unfortunately too much street noise (restaurant trash pick up, for example) to open the window. Other than that, everything was fine. Ask for an inside room.

    This is a small family run hotel, and while it's a little on the worn looking side, everything is clean and works well (best wifi of my trip, in fact). The beds are comfortable and the shower is excellent. It's well located, and there's nearly free parking nearby on the streets just outside the walls. There's a great little bar next door - I'm not sure if it's associated with the hotel, but it's a very cozy spot with good snacks.

    The wifi signal was weak and downloads impossible. It is a pity hotels think wifi is less important than tv. If tv reception was as bad hotels would quickly rectify the problem.

    Great location, within the city walls. Friendly staff and lovely room.

    Personal war sehr freundlich.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    We needed a baby bed for our 12-month old boy (and requested this with the booking), the nice lady at the reception spoke only in Spanish... I tried to explain with hands what we need... first she brought a pillow for the baby and then two larger ones. The double bed was not really wide, so our little one took the most of it... not a relaxing night :-(. The room is really small for a family. The carpet not clean enough for a Curious toddlet.

    Personal war sehr freundlich... die Lage ist perfekt, Frühstück ok
