It was an easy decision to stay here again this year after our wonderful visit last spring. Our flight arrives in Madrid at 7:30 in the morning after a long trip from the US and we really appreciate the ability to request early check in. We use all our stays as a basis for day trips and the quiet nights and mornings are welcome. This year we drove from El Pontifical to Segovia and my husband lost his wallet there, not stolen, dropped. We didn't realize it until we were halfway back to Madrid and no one was able to help us. We got back to the hotel concerned about the wallet and tired from our day of sightseeing. Our server at the hotel restaurant called Ms. Diaz and we spoke to her about the lost wallet. The next morning she had phone numbers, called Segovia police for us and the wallet had been turned in!! We got the address and picked it up on our way to the rest of our vacation. This is a long story to tell how helpful Ms. Diaz can be if you let her know what you need.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beautiful 18th-century building, which because of its history and stately position has become one of the most emblematic constructions in Los Santos de la Humosa and was originally used to store the payment of the tithe to the Archbishop of Toledo.It is located in the heart of the village, next to the Town Hall Square and the San Pedro Apóstol Church. In the restoration work of the Pontifical they have preserved the original architecture, keeping the splendour of the ancient pieces, among which we can highlight the spectacular wine cellar. We have also preserved the original elements of the building such as the wooden beams in the ceilings and stone and brick walls, combining it with the strength and sobriety of the modern decorative features: glass, silestone, leather, and converting the building into a delightful accommodation, where the difference between traditional and modern decorative styles blend together to perfection.The hotel has 5 rooms: 3 standard doubles, 1 superior double and 1 junior suite with a whirlpool bath and shower. All the rooms have been exquisitely decorated and have all modern day comforts, as well as superb views of the River Henares and the Guadarrama Mountains. The restaurant has two large rooms, seating 60 people. It offers traditional dishes and a careful presentation with the possibility of arranging meals for groups or companies in the private dining room. ... more less
