Hotel Don Carmelo3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is a good, basic hotel with no frills. There is only a cafe bar for food and we ate out and found a good breakfast along the street. There is underground parking at the hotel with plenty of room for 10 euros - good value to keep your car safe. If you are trying to find this hotel, come to it from the northern side not the southern side. If you are coming from the south, take the 3rd exit on the motorway in the direction of Madrid. It is virtually impossible to drive into the hotel from the south as the Walled Castle is in the way. The receptionist only spoke Spanish but my rudimentary Spanish was adequate. To improve this hotel, they need to extend the bar into a restaurant.
This is a modest hotel but with all the necessary. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all the necessary. No fridge in the room nor kettle. It is not located in the city centre, but Ávila is not very big, just a nice walk. Breakfast buffet had all the necessary, excellent coffee and attentive staff. The gym is really good. This is a good option to travel with family.
The hotel don Carmelo is located very close to the train and bus stations but a bit far from the town centre (more than 1 km). Considering that most of the way is a pleasant walk through a garden, this is not a problem if you don't mind walking and you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the town. Our room (a double, No. 405) was big enough and functional, spotlessly clean, decorated in the seventies-eighties style and provided with AC. The wi-fi connection in room was virtually useless, being very weak and unreliable. The bed was a three-quarter one. In the bathroom, there were a bathtub and a bidet. The breakfast buffet (which costs 7 € per person) is large and of good quality. They also serve decent meals at lunch and dinner. All in all, for 45 €, I would choose it again. Oh, one last thing: the main entrance could be awkward for those with walking difficulties (several steps and no ramp). In case of need, I suppose one could get in through the door of the restaurant, on the left.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for two nights in february of this year. It is a fair walk to the center and it's attractions but served our purpose. Personnel polite, breakfast normal variety and room with a decent view of the street covered in snow at that time! Quiet except for some traffic noise before midnight and clean enough. Luggage was kept for us in a pile along with a mountain of other cases on the day we were leaving which made us a bit nervous! Was a difficult time to get a reservation as we came for the 'coming out 'parade of the newly sworn in police so in the hotel as with Avila in general, we felt they took all the visitors a bit for granted during this time. Was a good enough hotel for what we wanted and if you wish to visit this beautiful city, this hotel is on par with all others.
Acogedor lugar. con reminiscencias vintage y retro. Habitaciones acogedoras, Enfrente del hotel pasa la linea 1, que te lleva al casco histórico y murallas. Asi mismo enfrente hay un parque muy acogedor.
Me gustó Situado a 15 min andando del centro Zona tranquila sin mucho tráfico Habitacion amplia y limpia. Bien acondicionada. Cama cómoda. Ropa de cama bien surtida. mantas, almohadas... Baño correcto con secador, etc Personal atento y agradable Han bajado el precio. 72 € por una doble No me gustó Ascensores estrechos No hay rampa en el acceso al hotel La silla de secretaria en recepción. Tiene más años que el hotel. El Check-in muy lento
El hotel estaba bastante bien , aunque demasiado caro para lo que es nos cobraron 75€ por pasar una noche 2 personas, los pasillos del hotel tenian una luz tenue que daba miedo andar por ellos , la atencion fue buena , pero si vuelvo a avila sin duda ire a otro hotel
Situado a 10 minutos andando del centro, frente a un precioso parque. Las habitaciones son amplias de decoración austera, el personal super agradable. Su biblioteca-salón de juegos es un buen lugar de reunión. Buena relación calidad-precio
Hotel calidad precio bueno, personal agradable, la cama cómodas es lo que siempre busco, la habitación regular y un poco ruidoso del exterior, el jimnasio espectacular todo nuevo y muy bien cuidado les felicito. El parking es de pago.
La comida de la cafeteria buena,la habitacion limpia y comoda,silencioso,se duerme bastante bien,un poco lejos de la muralla y las zonas para visitar para ir andando y todo alrededor es zona azul,pero el hotel esta bien.
