An overnight to have a look at the lovely old city of Avila. Right at the walls ,near one of the main gates, this hotel is not big but is nicely done out inside . Our room was more than adequate , facing the ( quite busy at times ....the streets come to life quite early in the morning here ) street on the reception side of the hotel . The other side would face the walls and you can exit to that side via the restaurant at most times ( not late at night though). Decent modern bathroom ... a flashing showerhead , woo hoo, but a crack in the basin ...not really serious in reality.
Friendly personnel based on our short interactions , and breakfast , albeit fairly basic, was good quality, nicely set out and I think was good value at Eur 5.
Aircon seemed a bit weak so maybe as well it was cooling down from the summer peaks ( and the city is 3700 feet up...so the height of Scafell Pike / Snowdon ) ....
A solid 3 star hotel for a decent rate ...a good 8.5 out of 10. Torrance Traveller warns you : Avila is pretty shut up on a Sunday evening so check whats open....More
