Location inside the city walls allowing excellent opportunities to explore on foot and sample the local services.
Difficult to raise a smile, but that's typical of hotel staff in main land Spain.
within the city wall and a converted palace usual parador standards
One can not think of a better place when planning to go to Ávila. The Parador is located right into the City Walls, parking is a breeze if you are driving and it has classical "paradores quality". Don't even bother looking for a cheaper hotel, this place is the best value for your money. Rooms have lots of space, plus all modern amenities. A must!
The location and the ambience.
They did not accept American Express Traveller Cheques (!!!). Had we not had cash and Credit Cards we would have been in trouble.
Comfort, lounge area and background music, food, pleasant staff
Initially placed in a 'smoking room' though had requested when booking for a non smokers room.Staff immediately changed the room and all was well.
Position good for visting town walls and close to main attractions. Also easy to access by car as beside one of main town gates. Pleasant hotel with beautiful gardens.
Our room over looked noisy cobbled street and cars contantly rumbled by all through the night coming away from late bars and clubs which tended to keep us awake. So if booking request a room on the quieter side of the hotel
Very convenient to the old city and all its charms. Has a wonderful sense of history, with a great garden and atmospheric public spaces.
The room was serviceable, but nothing special.
Location near the wall was a good place to explore Avila
One of our lampstand lights was not working. It took 3 calls to get someone to rectify the problem. The room was warn and the air-conditioning was not working. We ordered the 80th anniversary dinner selection but the food served was nowhere near as good as the Parador de Vic we stayed at in Jun 09.. .
Checkin was already possible by 11'00 A.M. Free parking space in front of the hotel avbl.
