Parador de Zamora4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We recently stayed for 1 night as part of a driving tour. The hotel in the town centre is a beautiful elegant building with generous rooms all as you would expect from a Parador. The lady on reception could not have been more helpful. Firstly she ensured that we had one of the very limited spaces in the car park, and then she signed us up for the Parador rewards scheme which will get uss access to cheap or free rooms in the future, As this was the fourth Parador that we had stayed in on this trip it had not been mentioned before. Very pleasant swimming pool which was a perfect way to cool off after a days travelling.
Incredible building, the palace is amazing. However furniture and service needs a bit of an update. Love the charm of the old building, the patio is fantastic. They have some sofas where you can relax and read. Room was ok, however slightly small and old. Food was yummy and restaurant has a charm. Location is perfect, right in the city center
We stayed here for two nights and had a fabulous room (123) overlooking he swimming pool. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff are so friendly and tolerant of the fact that I speak no Spanish. The restaurant looked very inviting, but as the weather was so good (i.e. extremely hot) we had supper each evening on the terrace. Short walk in to the town square which has numerous bars and restaurants.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the beautiful, tranquil and cultural city of Zamora, at the equally splendid Parador de Zamora, a real gem of a hotel. With its unique historical feel, quiet calmness, character room, with a view of the splendidly calm pool and landscape beyond, it's a great place to stay. Fantastic local high quality food and a special staff, who eve remembered is from the last trip!
This parador is a beautiful renovation in a historic palace. The location is simply superb . The staff, particularly the reservations manager, was so helpful and knowledgeable. They made our stay extra special. The city has many marvelous treasures and I loved the fact that it was so easy to reach all of them from the hotel. The parador offers a garage for parking which I highly recommend.
This is the worst hotel ever!!! After allready a few days of bad service, the bad mentality of the staff came to a climax when the staff called (!) the police to take my car which was parked in front of the hotel, in stead requesting me to put my car elsewhere. When I came back to pack my things in order to leave the hotel, I parked my car in the designated area to charge my luggage. After 15 minutes while I was packing they called me in my room that the pólice was there to take my car again!!! I strongly advise not to go to this horrible place. The staff doesn't work with joy for their clients. They behave like schoolmasters. Their behaviour is worse than that of civil servants.
Getting there is a bit exciting, but follow the signs and have faith and guess the last bit and it's well worth it. Garage parking is expensive - but a good idea, we thought. Cheerful and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Comfortable bed - and the best air-con we've found in any Parador. The floors squeak quote badly so go for a top floor room. The rooms are in new build on the back of the original Palace - very tastefully done but not as soundproof as old stone walls. We thought that our suite was excellent value for money, with stunning views over the river, very quiet and with lots of space.
Great place to chill for a few days. Great pool that you can swim properly in. Great location within 2 minutes walk of plaza mayor with restaurants and bars. Rooms a good size. Very interesting building. We did not eat at the hotel as have done so on a previous visit and wanted to eat with the locals instead. But we enjoyed a few drinks in the bar which overlooks the pool. We will return.
The actual place very tired, my main moan is the restaurant, the food was not just ok it was bad !!!!! 3 out of 4 had the same main meal and ended up with a stomach upset.... leave this to your own conclusion. And the staff in the restaurant were so unfriendly we actually had a quiet word with reception and said we were not very happy.... only to find the next morning at breakfast not only ( once they left us waiting for ten minutes looking at us through the door) for any service, but completely ignored us, the receptionist said ( or should I say implied that they were not happy with there wages !!! Is that our fault . Lovely place but use the restaurant ????????!!!!!
With the recession, a distinct impression that parador standards have slipped a trifle Magnificent building, fine location in this glorious city, another gem if one likes the style. Dinner, as ever, heavy and hearty, and overpriced, not recommended
