Great to experience monastery life!:-) But rather expensive. Breakfast was simple and restaurant was so-so. Enjoy the walk around the garden. Free internet, no elevator. Outdoor pool was rather cold.... Spacious room.

A sense of history came over me as i walked the corridors here and thought about Christopher Columbus staying here over 500 years ago. The rooms are huge and some have great views from the windows. The furnishings were comfortable and attractive in a traditional way. For cat lovers - there are some friendly cats who live on the grounds...

This place is a gem. Extremely comfortable rooms, large and lovely building and gardens, very good public areas. The food is good, too, and reasonably priced. Palma del Rio itself is just a bustling little town, but it's pleasant enough - but there's no real reason to leave the monastery. Book on the hotel's site rather than via an online...

This is worth the visit, they do not charge an entrance fee (all other cathedrals and basilicas do). It has a museum next door to it and a cute cafe/gift shop right down the steps. There is construction around it, but go in and check it out!

Although really an ancient monument, the hotel retains its original design and charm, whilst providing modern bedrooms, with comfortable beds, spacious quiet rooms, and fully modernised en...

We traveled to this charming hotel for a friend's wedding. Palma del Río is a small town approximately 1 hour from Sevilla. It is a small town, but rich with history and close proximity to Sevilla and Córdoba. The highest rating hotel in Palma is 3 stars and the bride recommended Monasterio or Hotel Castillo.
