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
Request an arrivals map by email before you travel - otherwise you will have little chance of finding without several attempts! Park at front of hotel to unload; there is a very small and "tight" garage around the side of the hotel - reception staff will open and assist in parking after check in - if they have room. THERE IS STREET PARKING ALONG THE SIDE OF THE HOTEL, METERS. Good reception, excellent English, escorted to large room. Base on another typical Spanish Palace, with a central courtyard, surrounding large passageways on all floors, with rooms off to outside of building. Room well equipped; air conditioning made all the correct noises - but did nothing - too early for such luxuries in Spanish eyes? Restaurant - lovely setting and décor, but let down by a) poor menu translation to English (actual dishes as delivered bore little or no resemblance to description) b)none of the waiting staff, including Maître d', spoke ANY English c) staff training poor eg a single spoon for one of us, and a fork and spoon for the other - we eventually worked out the wrong way around for the two dishes ordered (which bore no resemblance to what we thought we had ordered . . .) The breakfast selection was very good, all buffet, and constantly refreshed. Coffee staff served, from industrial Nespresso machine, with full type choice. Check out good, and only option is that your car is delivered to front of hotel for loading - can be worrying having seen how tight it was to park. BUT, do beware that if you have been so bold as to ask for a local map of this historic area, which they tear off a large pad, you will find a 2 Euro charge on your bill . . .
We have been to 6 Paradors throughout Spain with variable accommodation and menus over the past few weeks this as far as The Resturant staff and food has been the worst. The breakfast was cleared away at 10.30 whilst we ate and lacked descent attendance from unsmiling unhelpful unhappy staff. Last nights dinner was so poor in that the starter of cod bits were over cooked the main that 3 people ate caused stomach problems and was small on portions and poorly presented. If things fail to improve this Parador dispute it's location will not be worth your visit.
A truly wonderful hotel with so much to explore in the area. A memorable experience.from booking on arrival, the evening meal was joyous , the breakfast has excellent choices, the room and bathroom so so spacious.if you wish solitude then Zamora has to be considered.
Great experience.Good breakfast. Parking facilities Very well located to explore Zamora. Big bed, Good linen. Complete bathroom, could have more anenities for two,but we also didnt ask for more. If so, for sure the hotel would have provided.
Drink on the terrace overlooking the pool, friendly staff. Excellent location for the old part of the city. Food good. Rooms clean and spacious. Advised of limited garage space and sent details of parking location when booking. Space was available in the garage when I arrived. Very helpful at reception It would be good if the hotel had an arrangement for parking in the square simiar to the arrangement at Zafra.
This parador is similar to the one in Cuenca. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was simple but adequate. The parador is in a good location; near the plaza mayor and not far from the cathedral and castle. A leg of the Camino de Santiago runs right in front. Parking in the public parking area was inexpensive. The wifi was adequate for accessing the Internet.
The Parador is a beautiful old stone building ideally situated in the heart of the old town. Parking is available in an underground car park adjacent to the Parador. Lovely room, good a/c very helpful staff. I enjoyed the restaurant: good supper and breakfast.
