Parador de Zamora4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A wonderful historic old building. Unfortunately let down by the poor quality of food and the crazy rule that closes the pool because it's after the 15 Sep-even though this is not consistently applied throughout the 13 Paradores we visited.
Great location of this old 15th century palace. But in our opinion, it was the worst we have stayed in. We were lucky to get underground garage parking - at a price. But we felt the bar service was lacking - not the usual friendly approach. We were in a room in the old part - they are due for renovation! We think there is a new wing which must be more up to date. For example, the radiator in the bathroom must be 50 years old from the shape and size of it. The bathroom seems to have been upgraded some years ago, so it is not really practical. We love paradors but think this one needs a bit of a shake up
Location and arrival 5/5 - our satnav took us directly to the hotel entrance. Originally a 15C palace - the building is gorgeous. It's in the center of the old town, with the cathedral and main square are close by. A swift and friendly check in. The staff were very helpful with parking advice and they helped me to sort out a parking ticket - only cost me €2.60 - bargian. Room 5/5. We stayed in room 112, a Superior Double on the first floor in the old part of the hotel overlooking the square. A huge room with a very high ceiling and a massive 4 poster bed - we slept well after a fine dinner. Large seating are. TV with international news channels. Plenty of storage. Desk and chair. Minibar with soft drinks. Digital safe. Lovely wooden floors. A superb room. Bathroom 5/5. Full size bath with shower. Separate toilet and bidet. Nice towels and toiletries. Dinner 5/5. - we started with a glass of wine on the pleasant terrace in the evening sunshine. We had booked 1/2 board, but we paid the €3pp extra for the Menu Gastronomic. For this we received 5 large courses of wonderful local food, plus water, plus a bottle of excellent local wine. Superb value, but way, way too much food for us. Oh and it included coffee and service - incredible value. We went to bed stuffed full. Breakfast 5/5. A huge array of food. Eggs cooked to order. Good coffee. Other 5/5. The pool area is pleasant and we spent an hour relaxing there. The pool is nice, but the water was a bit chill for me. The bar and terrace area is very pleasant. The public areas are impressive with wide corridors, suites of armour and a beautiful central courtyard. Overall - 5/5. We loved it.
Former palace/castle very nicely converted to hotel. Very elegant and refined. Terrace bar overlooks Duero River and serves yummy Gin and Tonics. Breakfast is very complete. Zamora is delightfully quaint and charming Not overrun with tourists as is Salamanca.
Very helpful and friendly people looking after you at the hotel. We had one of the bedrooms in the older part of the hotel which look out onto the large inner square patio. Wonderful light shining through the building making it a very special and unique place. The bar drinks were a bit expensive compared to bars in the town.
Stayed on a road trip from Portugal to Spain. This hotel is a stunning piece of architecture. The photo opportunities are almost endless! As a hotel, the staff were efficient and the room was spotless. The bathroom was imposing! WE were lucky enough to get an Eva Peron balcony room too. Bonus was the cery good, clean pool
This hotel is a must, if you are in the neighborhood. Lovely hotel in the center of a historic old town. Very nice personal. Good breakfast and a good restaurant for dining. Excellent pool-area with a terrace bar.
A very good experience. The room an facilities were clean bright spacious and comfortable. Service from everyone was excellent. The breakfast was super. Lots of variety and high quality. First class in all areas
Used as an overnight from N Spain to Oporto. Wanted to try a Parador and was not disappointed here. We enjoyed a lovely, large airey room overlooking the garden and pool area with distant views - very pleasant. (Double Superior). Whilst features of a bygone past evident throughout the Parador it was lovely to explore the common areas and wonder how life once was there. Enjoyed some drinks outside the bar overlooking the pool enabling a chance to relax. Staff were very helpful at reception providing ideas for places to eat. Little did we know when booking that the Parador was in the heart of the old town and there were lovely side streets to visit and a fort to explore - this we did the following morning. The room was large - comfortable large double and excellent bathroom area. No complaints what so ever. Enjoyed a lovely buffet breakfast with fine selection of cereals, breads, cheeses, fruit etc. Parking is outside of the building in a public square - concierge will advise best times to feed meter - but overnight was just a few Euros. The car was safe throughout. It is a little difficult to find by car as signage in the town poor so worth using sat nav or have a good scale map before arriving. We will no doubt use this Parador again as it turned out to be a lovely surprise.
This is another example of an historic building turned into a parador. In this case, the Palace of the Counts of Alba and Aliste. There are two wings with the newer of the two looking on to the swimming pool in a grassy area and then with a view to the river below. The beds were very comfortable, everything clean and the staff was always very helpful. This parador has the advantage of being central to all the historic buildings in Zamora and only one block away from the Main Square.
