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 …
Segovia, Tuesday 8 July-Friday 11 July
With this entry I am putting the photos all below as I feel they are clearer when viewed as a slide show.
It was easier to reach Segovia by train, so after a slow morning we walked to the station which is right near the bus station. The guy told Peter we could not get seats together, which was a load of rubbish, even though the train was quite full. There was a spare seat next to me the whole trip, while Peter's seat was ...
... closed for the day a mere ten minutes earlier, which we hadn't realized it would do (we could have so easily left Avila a few minutes earlier!). There was no after-hours drop-off procedure--in fact, the hotel that shares space with the rental car company told us that we absolutely could not park in their garage overnight. Worried about getting charged for an extra day and trying to find a place to park overnight in this city of 3.5 million, this called for ...
... Thus it is floating on the other side. In this building we watched a imax movie on the Historia de una Falla, wooden structures that are absolutely HUGE and which are placed in the Plaza de la Virgen for 3 days and then burnt in a huge ceremony. Watching it burn gave me the goosebumps. It signified that everything is finite and the motivation to start anew.
The aquarium was slightly random but apparently it is the biggest in Europe.
... palace, the hallways stretch on forever! I could not believe how many rooms there were in this place. In our tour we just kept moving down the hallway from room to room and got the quick rundown of what activity was done in each. Its hard to believe the royalty lived this lavishly when such a large percentage of the population barely had a place to live or food to eat during this era.
After the palace, we headed into the city ...
