A bit hard to find as in a pedestrain area but well located for sightseeing. Free car parking spot and friendly staff. Room very dated but clean and adequate.

Andrea, the birding in Segovia is fantastic! They have a lot of those storks I told you about when we were birding in Istanbul. The ones that look like wood storks!
Here's a picture I took of them.They have this really neat Roman aqueduct, too!
