For just one night, we didn't made any reservation, so we checked out the local tourist office first (very helpful!). As per our request we were handed over a handful of 3-4 stars hotels in the city centre. We always perfer the quietness of the riverside over the convenience (and potential) noise of the centre and for that, we had to walk pretty bluff towards the river Duero.
And there on a square, we had an amazing view of an ancient church and a modern style hotel, sharing a hugh chimey. A real culture clash, intricating and instantly appealing to our interest. The room was very spacious, clean, double sink bathroom with toilet, bath and shower and a nice, just big enough balcony with 4 seats in the shade of the church. The beds are firm, pillows a bit soft, but we slept well, almost missing breakfast!
The riverbank was only 50 mtrs away, after crossing a main, but quiet road.
The car-free city centre is only a few hundreds meters away, but be prepared for a steep walk of 10-20 minutes, depending on your age and ability. Anyway, we think the NH-hotel is very conveniently located for all ages.
For food and drinks, the plaza around the big church in the centre is providing all you're looking for, but keep in mind Zamora is not a very big city. We took an €8,00, three course set lunch just around the corner of the hotel (less than 25 mtrs) with no more than three tables on the pavement. Amazingly good! In the evening we went for tapas in Los Abuelos V in the city centre and the walk all the way up to the Plaza Major was a real appetizer.
The breakfast room is located next to a very interesting kind of a conference room, but in church style. Breakfast itself was good, but the boiled eggs were far from fresh. We complained, but declined their offer for new ones. Apart from that, it's worthwhile staying in this hotel.
