... the palace at 5.30. Hayden was in a panic as he was itching to get back for the football final. We got back just on 9pm, still in time for dinner in the residence, as dinner goes from 8-9.30. Most of rest of the group headed to the plaza but I didn't have the energy. They all managed to sleep on the bus, but I couldn't. I'll be returning to Segovia from Madrid, as it's one part of a tour I am doing, am more than happy to visit this beautiful place ...
... our way, so it was really good that we took the time in Sri Lanka to remotely apply for my international driver's permit. At last, we got to Madrid. Driving in Madrid was generally better than driving in Paris, but it still involved a couple of hairy moments that made me very, very happy that we were on our way to return the car. We arrived at the rental car office that we had booked as our drop-off location because it was near our hostel--and found it ...
Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and San Frutos
The gothic cathedral is impressive and imposing. Although construction began in 1525 it was not consecrated until 1768. It has a three-nave floor-plan with transept covered with a dome, a semicircular apse and an ambulatory, surrounded by 18 gated capilla or chapels, each decorated in a different style.
The cathedral is very busy - it's Sunday and admission is free - but the cloisters are ...
... the main square and then on to the Alcázar, which had impressive ceilings and a great view from the top of the tower. There were also a million other churches along the way. I noticed that many, many Segovian buildings had the same design on their walls, like fish scales. I really liked it. Satisfied that I had seen all of the main sights, I returned to the bus stop on time for a 6.20 bus. However when the bus ...
... artifacts and books from miliarty school a few hundred years old. Interesting to see manuals on how to use certain kinds of weapons as well as military strategy dating from so long ago. On the top of the towers there is graffiti along the wall dating back to the 1930's - maybe the castle was still a military stronghold during WWII.
Segovia is a beautiful old town with an ...

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.
