This might be only a 2 star hotel, but when we walked around Albarracín, we were reminded of why we had chosen it. The location is excellent for views, free local parking and unloading luggage! We were offered an upgrade and were pleased that we took the opportunity, since although the room was pleasantly furnished, it was a bonus to have a sofa and a sitting area. The hotel has been tastefully converted to retain some of the character of its former days and the owners were exceptionally friendly and informative about the area and its history. Albarracín is absolutely charming and well worth a visit, especially mid-week when you can walk the narrow streets at your own pace.
The only negative is not a complaint, but rather a personal preference, which we have trouble with in all but the larger hotels. We only eat fruit and yogurt for breakfast and although the bread, cakes and croissants on offer looked adequate for most guests, there was no fruit available. We have learned to "self-cater" in such circumstances and since breakfast was not included in the price of the room, it wouldn't deter us from staying there again, when we're en-route further north.
