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 …
... same town. Both the Moors and the Romans invaded Spain, and they both left huge influences on the Spanish culture. The Roman aqueduct represents the more European side of Spain, which sheds some light into the way of life for many Spanish people when the clash of cultures lived there at once.
Unfortunately, we could not stay in Segovia for too long. After seeing the Aqueduct, we headed to Madrid and checked into our hotel, which is our final home ...

It had rained most of our four-hour drive south from San Sebastián that morning. We kept hoping it would let up, but it just vacillated between driving rain and a depressing gray drizzle. Having come down from the mountains, we were, in fact, driving through Spanish plains, so the "My Fair Lady" song was unfortunately entirely accurate.

Afterwards we started to wonder and found ourselves in a square that was by the cathedral. This also was a beautiful area (I wish I could come up with a better word to use). There was a gazebo in the middle, cafes and restaurants surrounding the square and this massive cathedral towering over all of it. I believe that it was one of the last gothic cathedrals built in Spain and they did a fantastic job. While we didn't go inside, since we have ...
... that many tourist treasures lie within. About 10km from Escorial is the Valle de Los Caidos (Valley of the Fallen) basilica and monument, built in 1959 by Franco to commentate the 40,000 casualties of the Spanish Civil War who are buried there. The huge basilica (it's crypt is bigger than the one under St Peter's) is wholly excavated into a granite ridge and on the ...
