We stayed at El Encanto for two nights over New Years Eve and while it was overall nice and good value, we had some mixed feelings. The reception staff was welcoming and helpful and the hotel is conveniently located opposite the mercado municipal and a short walk from the Cathedral. There’s parking garage around the corner as well. It’s a modern space in old walls with a clean and sparse design but we found it lacking warmth and cosiness. Our room was facing inward to the courtyard with very little light and the shades were somewhat tedious to move up and down. The bed was comfy and there was a desk and closet as well but no other furniture and no coffeemaker or kettle. The lights in the room were almost neon and it was either too dark or too light - just not right. The bathroom - which is open - had a separate toilet and bidet and excellent shower (it got quite hot and wet in the room though as we weren’t able to open the window). The blowdryer worked well, as did the internet. But the light in the bathroom was terrible (especially if you’re trying to put on make-up). There was also some echo in the hallways and from the rooms. Downstairs they serve drinks and some snacks on demand which was a nice feature, and the quality was good as well. They gave us two options for a noche vieja menu and we enjoyed the dinner a lot but then we had also inquired about mass or prayer times at the different churches and they kept redirecting us to the sites themselves without success. The lady at the Cathedral finally gave us a paper with all the mass times (I’ve posted it as a photo) - I think it would have been a nice gesture and not that difficult to send us this info ahead, given the fact that many people come to Àvila as pilgrims or to pray, and there’s not much else going on.

The fit-out of the hotel is modern but still displays the great bones of the old building. Perfect location inside the old town walls. Reception staff were very lovely. I wasn’t a fan of the pillows and only saw afterwards that they had a pillow menu to choose from.

A beautifully remodeled older building well located in the heart of Ávila. My room was small but extremely comfortable with a great shower to boot. Simple lines, clean and welcoming in every way. Breakfast was abundant and I did not get to try the restaurant ... but I want to! Next time ...

Lovely hotel in City wall right next to cathedral great history kind people and clean room.We arrived late and they checked us in quickly. The only problem was that the reservation said two twin beds or double standard bed. This was misleading because we thought either way we would be two beds, but we had one. You only get two beds if you specifically ask. The beds were normal European beds, kinda hard but ok for a night. The worst part of our stay was that the hotel is so small that when someone burnt toast at breakfast the entire room smelled like it and we could not continue to sleep. Parking was a close walk, but not close enough to bring your bags so it's suggested to check-in and drop them first. You have to reserve parking ahead of time. I would stay again.

We were here on a business trip. Really really enjoyed it. The rooms are modern and up to date, clean and neat design. It was quiet. Right in old Avila area which is beautiful!!! The only things are - don’t eat here, no laundry is available and our room key kept not working despite no electronics near it. I would definitely stay here again!!!
