We just stepped out from this Hotel. Just arrived into one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, we wanted to have a fresh drink in the terrace and then ask for a room. The guy said the terrace is just for hotel customers only and insisted on that even if the terrace was empty. He was so unfriendly and...

At the moment this hotel is rated 8 of 8 in Albarracin. The others must be outstanding to beat this hotel. Friendly, helpful proprietors who, although they have no English, couldn't do more to make us wecome. The hotel is perfectly sited on the flat at the entrance to the old hill town. Plenty of parking. Easy access with your...

Why only a two star hotel? I'd give it 5. As previous reviewers have mention it is a converted nunnery. The conversion is very recent so all the rooms look fresh. The rooms are large with excellent bathrooms. There was also a fridge in our room. The whole building is truly historic. I loved the centralcourtyard/light well when you stepped...

This converted nunnery is a beautiful building right on the outskirts of the fortified town of Albarracin. The rooms are large and quite well-appointed – certainly up to standard for the cost per night. The man at reception couldn’t have been more friendly to us, explaining everything to us about where the exits are, where best to park our motorbikes,...

This might be only a 2 star hotel, but when we walked around Albarracín, we were reminded of why we had chosen it. The location is excellent for views, free local parking and unloading luggage! We were offered an upgrade and were pleased that we took the opportunity, since although the room was pleasantly furnished, it was a bonus to...

Very good and cheap hotel, with easy access to the central area of town ( just use elevator to be at the same level that the main street). The rooms are really clean and comfy. The bathroom unexpectedly modern . The only problem was that in winter the central heating in the room is not enough. We had about +12...

You can’t have a more appropriate hotel for visiting and exploring the amazing medieval town of Albarracin. The have done a terrific job converting an old monastery into a modern hotel. The rooms are spacious with a rustic ambience and 32 and 37 inch flat screen television sets. The bathrooms offer ample space and such modern, almost high tech showers...

Nice hotel for short stay. They have dissadvatages and they dont have very comfortable rooms. But they are very nice for 2-3 day stay. It is actually a castle, little bit renufated but not much. Internet but only in the hall. Beds comfortable ... but not on the highest level. (DO NOT FORGET IT IS 2-3 STAR HOTEL) In generale...

“Rooms with a view of Albarracin are best simply for the view but all the rooms are excellent quality.”

“Try to get a room facing the street and the valley. Other rooms face the less appealing backside or the interior patio. However, be aware that the outside rooms on the windy side can be pretty cold in winter even with the radiators on full blast. Although the medieval stone walls are thick, they are no match for the howling winds in this region. But help is only a reception away. The very friendly hotel staff delivered on request an additional electric heater, which took care of the problem.”
