... war armour on display, as well as horse armour and various weapons and shields. Now I was off on a day trip to Segovia, only half an hour by high speed train. The bus from the train station dropped me off right in front of the huge roman aqueduct, the oldest one in Spain still standing. It recently underwent a super expensive face lift to make it last another thousand years looking so young. Next I walked to the ...
... accompanied by two groups of bored teenagers, and frankly, the visit is indeed a little boring. The actual structure and its stunning location high above the Eresma River belie the somewhat bland interior. The whole place was burnt out in 1862, so everything inside has been renovated.
Our walk home through the well illuminated streets is most ...
... Bravo (John the Brave), who led the people during the people's revolution against the French. We also saw his house, near the Church of St. Martin. We also saw the Church of St. Michael, where Isabella was coronated Queen! We came to the main square, where the Cathedral was located. After a quick coffee break in the square, we continued on to the top of the village, where the Alcazár was located. The ...
Today we went on a train from Bilbao to Segovia. At the first stop we ( my family ) think they ( the staff ) added another four more carriages because when we hopped of the train we saw it and we felt a shove at the first stop. And don't forget it was a four and a half hour train ride.
We finally got some decent weather as we got to Segovia, despite the snow on the mountains around us, crisp clear ...
... can be seen from a long ways away and was truly beautiful. For those of you who don't remember an aqueduct is a sort of water system the Romans came up with to get water from the mountains to the cities, back in the day. While we were in Segovia we also visited the Alcazar de Segovia, or the fortress which could have either Roman or Celtic origins. It was built around the 14th century and is a ...

Infanta Isabel Hotel
Came back from Spain 5-17-05. We stayed at the Infanta Isabel Hotel for 4 nights. Great staff, great location, great price, and a great little city. We traveled to a few of the neighboring towns while there. If ever in Segovia again, we'll stay at the Infanta Isabel
Simply a charming hotel -- lovely, well-appointed room, ideal location and friendly, helpful staff.
Lovely Hotel, beautiful view, great location
Our room, with its view onto Plaza Mayor, was wonderful. I second the comments about the great valet parking. I would have been sad to have not had the view we did, however. If I had just daytripped from Madrid or Salamanca, I would have missed the beautiful sight of the cathedral from our room against the sapphire blue sky!
Stayed at this hotel in late September. Booked through our travel agent after reading about how charming this hotel was supposed to be in a number of places, including tripadvisor. It lived up to expectations. Centrally located on the Plaza Mayor, in walking distance of all Segovia's sites, nice cafés nearby. Parking was easy, with the hotel staff parking and retrieving the car for us. Room was cute, large and quiet with a nice bathroom. All for 85 euros a night. We would stay there again.
Stayed here one night on Aug 4 in a triple and a double. It's obvious from the other reviews that your experience at this hotel depends on the room you get, unfortunately there are very few good rooms. Neither of our rooms were acceptable, one looked out the back to a wall 6 inches away and the other looked out the front from under the colonnaded walk. The air conditioning did not work in the front room, the other room had a broken shower hose (which they did fix) and briken tiles in the bathroom, the front room had a very small bath. Overall the hotel is dated, dark and tired looking. The girl at reception was nice and helpful, but this hotel is definitely a 3 star with no pretense of being anything more. I recommend a day trip to Segovia from Madrid or Salamanca and stay in either of those cities instead of Segovia. Salamanca is a much, much nicer city. Stay at the Hotel Rector there.
Wonderful location and view
We were very happy with this hotel. We got a wonderful room on the 4th floor facing the plaza with a view of the cathedral. The room was surprisingly large by European standards with an enormous marble bathroom. I did notice on the floor map, that some of the other rooms facing off the plaza looked significantly smaller so you might want to specifically request a plaza-facing room. The location is great--central to everything and, despite the busy plaza below, our room was very quiet at night.
What a wonderful hotel. We had a room on the top floor overlooking the plaza which was beautiful. The room was large and spacious as was the bathroom. It was impeccably maintained. The staff were pleasant. We did not eat in the hotel because Segovia has so much to offer. Don't miss this gem of a town. We spent hours one night drinking wine on the plaza and watching the town come alive around us.
We loved the Hotel Infanta Isabel. Wonderful location. Had a large air-conditioned room with a dressing area and safe and a large bath with hairdryer. French windows were doubled, so plaza noise was kept to a minimum. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Prix-fixed lunch in the dining room was good; but breakfast is overpriced--go to a local cafe.
This hotel is located directly in the center of town within easy walking distance of the aquaduct and castle. The evening promade takes place directly outside. Breakfast was nice and the personnel friendly.
I would recommend staying there.
