We chose this hotel since it was just a short walk from the train station and located on one of the tree-lined thoroughfares of the town. We got more than we'd expected.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the junior suite we’d reserved for the same price that a regular double room in a three-star hotel usually costs in larger Spanish cities. As others have mentioned on TripAdvisor, the furnishings were a bit old-fashioned, but the two rooms in the suite were comfortable and practical for our weekend stay with a view of a courtyard like area. The bathroom was spacious and nicely tiled. And a nice extra touch were the bottles of water in a small glass refrigerator in the corridor for guests to take as they wished.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, and the marble entrance area was elegant. The elevator was a bit small, but then we didn’t have much luggage. Wifi was fast and reliable.
Breakfast was truly excellent with simple but superbly fresh ingredients: cheese, of course delicious Spanish jamón, crispy churros too with the wonderfully thick chocolate. We also enjoyed excellent tapas on our first afternoon and for our second light evening meal we also stayed at the hotel and had a tasty mushroom salad. Adjoining the reception area is a dining area with tables and an open bar. Upstairs there’s a gallery for breakfast and also for full dining on the weekend.
We’d certainly consider staying at Castilla Vieja again in Palencia and would certainly return for a full meal in the restaurant.
