TravelPod Member ReviewsInfanta Isabel Hotel Segovia
The staff were welcoming and helpful, providing information about what to see when visiting Segovia. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, with a lovely view of the square. We were able to drive our car all the way to the hotel (which was wonderful because it was snowing when we arrived), and valet parking was available and easy to use.

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.
Make Segovia a day trip, stay in Salamanca or Madrid
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.

We started the morning with eggs with breakfast, because, otherwise, we might get hungry mid-day. Around 11am, we said good-bye to our hosts and were taken to the airport. No lines for check-in, security, or immigration (but it still took a while). We read while waiting for our flight, and also had a coffee and bought a sandwich for the plane. The …
Spain is still full of surprises for us. When we left Santander and headed up into the mountains we could have almost been back in Scotland. It was raining, the cloud was down and it was only 15C! We were heading south to Segovia which means you climb up to almost 1000 metres up through the hills of the Cordillera Cantabrica.
Thankfully once we got on to the high plains the weather improved and the temperature started to climb again. This is the fertile ...

... a bit, took in the amazing views, and then went back to the initial task of getting breakfast (how we almost forgot). We did our best with bread and serrano ham; oh, and some chocolate covered palmeras, we were set. When we got back to the apartment, everyone was still sleeping. So, we did the only reasonable thing and ate breakfast without the others! Gradually, they all started to wake up. Elyse was the last to join the clan, clocking in at just ...
... Enslava played American music all the time so it was like being at an American club more than anything.
On Saturday we went on a short walk in Parque del Retiro with Spanish students. The park is supposed to be beautiful but unfortunately it was slightly raining. I did get to practice a little bit of my broken yet improving Spanish.
A FEW interesting facts.
