The location is excellent to visit the town, shopping and try the restaurants. the parador is a little 'tired' and the food is average. When booking you need to be careful of the prices, as the parador site is more expensive than other 'on line' booking services.

We had no problem finding the parador although it is in the old city and one has to negotiate the usual Spanish very narrow and one way streets. It was easy enough to unload luggage at the front but parking was an extra cost in the garage. We parked in a disabled space near the town library although we received unclear information from the parador staff about whether we had to pay. Access was difficult for me as I use a walker and while there was a ramp at the front door at from the lobby to the elevator, they were steep ramps and there were no ramps to the dining room , bar and salons. The room, I had requested a disabled room, was a standard room with no special features. The grab bar at the bathtub was quite loose and its instability made it unusable My wife said the decor of the room and the parador in toto was tired and the needed upgrading. The location was good in that it was an easy walk to cafes, bars and the plaza major.

Stayed here for a short vacation in the Toro and Rueda wine region and booked two rooms, a double one with separate living room and a 'normal' double.

Check in was slower than in other hotels, some staff speak English some don't.
We were given rooms next to each other in the new part of the hotel farthest most from the reception and the lobby / restaurant although we had asked for the historical location. As the passage to the old part was very complicated with suitcases and slow elevators we gave up the idea of asking for different ones. It seemed though that most guests lived in the historical part (by the room numbers).

The rooms however where nice, quite spacious, though dated. The beds very comfortable and the sheets and pillows some of the best I remember. This is an old parador, renovated to actual 'presentation' some - my guess - at least fifteen years ago, probably more. It's been done to hold so (all) appliances are working well but they're dated. You'll feel this particularly when sitting on the sofa ...

There is a safe in each room to which you'll need a separate card, so ask for it upon check in. Wifi is accesible when it feels like it and sometimes it just stops and you'll have to reconnect again. It's free however but didn't get through the old walls to our room.

This said, all was well. We had views of the garden and a church and a little Zamora across the river and the land behind. The terrace bar by the pool was very nice with swift service and lovely views.
The public areas are very nicely decorated - a real old castle with a beautiful inner court.

The restaurant has a tipically Spanish dinner card, the food is good and the wine fine. Waitresses speak enough English to explain what you can choose and expect.
The prices (like for the rooms) are within decent limits for what is offered. It's a castle however!

Breakfast was good, nice selection of everything, coffee and tea are being served upon order.

Car access is adventurous but fun, you get a parking around the corner but will have to pay for it during the week but not the weekend. Parking in front of the parador for check in and out is allowed but doesn't look nice with the building.

Would we stay here again? Maybe, the location is perfect in the heart of the zona peadonal (pedestrian zone) allowing easy walking to the nice monuments and the very nicely kept city center.

This hotel is by far the worst Parador that I have ever stayed in. Having spent the previous night in Leon, which is absolutely fantastic with with the best food I have ever had in a Parador Hotel this place was a real contrast.
The food was dreadful, the veal which we had turned out to be nothing but gristle.
Parking is a major problem as space is tight and very limited. Staff morale would appear to be very low and I was totally unimpressed with the "know all" Manager.
As for Zamora itself, well I have never seen anywhere in Spain with so much graffiti, which is such a shame given the excellent historic buildings on view.
I would never return.

We were not aware when we booked that this was Fiesta weekend. The only downside to this was that odd roads around the square were closed which made it more difficult to find the hotel in the old city and the fact that we had to park in a public car park a few minutes walk away.

However, we were welcomed by the Deputy Manager, had our rooms upgraded to enormous suites and he came with us to show us the car park.

There were two weddings at the hotel as well but we were well looked after and the service was good.

Room Tip: Ask for the honeymoon suite"
