Right on the square next to the Cathedral. The location is central to the walled city and is a perfect place to end the day. A stroll along the city walls, a tour of the Cathedral and many restaurants to choose from for your dining pleasure.

The hotel was truly palatial and breakfast buffet fantastic. It is situated in the centre of Avila opposite the cathedral with parking under the hotel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting here.

The main entrance means negotiating four steps leading directly to a rotating door, which is difficult to do if you have any type of rolling bag, the side entrance has a ramp, easy to negotiate. There is no door man and the reception area people do not offer to help you w your luggage. The room had multiple outlets to... More

Immaculate rooms, comfortable beds, nicely furnished, helpful staff, nice cafe and good 12Euro breakfast buffet. It is beautiful 16th century palace. We very much enjoyed our stay for 90Euros double room. The bathroom was nicely appointed. We would stay there again.

It is a beautiful hotel. Situated in a former noble palace and very quaint. The rooms are spacious and nice. The food is excellent and only thing that I would recommend as a change is upgrading telephones in the rooms and a Digital signal on a TV

Usually the rooms get smaller the closer one gets into the city centre. This was a very welcome exception: about 35 sqm at only 100m from the cathedral. No diner experience here, but breakfast was excellent.

We didn't stay in the hotel but we had a superb meal in stunning surroundings in the restaurant. We had the "Menu Especial", and all courses were excellent, typical Avila cuisine. The wine, produced by and for the hotel was outstanding. We've been to this restaurant before, and will definitely come again.

We stayed only for 1 night in a superior room overlooking the cathedral. Huge bed. A nice hotel, a bit impersonal, not a very warm reception. The downside is the parking, although there is parking at the hotel you can't pre-book it (so I was told) and when we arrived there were no spaces so had to park away from... More
