An incredible hotel with the best service and hospitality. Will definitely be back. Highly recommendable. Situated very central in Alquezar you can easy walk around the fantastic and scenic village. There is also the possibility to have an active and sporty time either hiking, cycling or the water activities in the river close by. Wonderful place.

Room Tip: Small hotel with only four rooms, next we will choose the suites on second floor with the most fanta...

Our family stayed with Alodia in the "small house", which includes the Olivo and Almendre rooms, for eight days. We were in the Aragon region specifically for our passion, which is canyoning/canyoneering. We could not possibly have made a better choice. Our host, Jose Luis, greeted us warmly and as soon as we walked in we were stunned. The décor is magnificent. They have wonderfully restored this building which is over eight hundred years old. Our rooms were equipped with all modern conveniences, yet they have the appearance of a long past era. Televisions are small and hidden inside cabinets as not to spoil the historic ambience. We did not come here to watch TV, so this was perfect. Beds are sooo comfortable. Everything functioned perfectly, including air conditioning...something that is often absent in this type of accommodation. When the shades are all open, you are magically transported into history, looking out over this fairy tale village of ninth to twelfth century cottages, a cathedral and the castle. Bells chime the hour, half past and on each quarter, adding to the ancient ambience. Small shopkeepers greet you kindly as you wander down the cobblestone streets, the smell of freshly baked goods drifting down the corridors. Everyone you see says "hola!" as you pass by. In our accommodation, each morning at the time we requested we would go down to the lower level of our home and find a beautifully prepared breakfast with many local specialties, including cheese made from sheep's milk in the Aragon tradition as well as regional sausage or cured ham. Close the blinds and shutters and you have complete darkness and privacy, allowing you to sleep so soundly and recover from either your long journey to get there or your day of canyoning in the beautiful Sierra de Guara. Our housekeepers (two very kind ladies) spoke no English but did everything they could do to make our stay pleasant, including bringing an espresso machine with capsules so we could have early coffee as we do back home. Warning, this small village is very traditional, which means they eat dinner VERY late and accordingly get up later, serve breakfast and coffee later etc, so make arrangements if, like us, you wake early and want your cup of coffee! You will not find dinner before 8:30 pm, and no shop, bakery or café opens before 9:30 am. It took a few days, but eventually we adjusted to the Spanish way of life and enjoyed long dinners, commonly from 9pm until midnight or beyond! I could go on and on, but I will end by saying that this is a very special accommodation in a very special place. We came here just for the world class canyoning, but we fell in love with the entire place. Jose Luis, I sincerely hope you will some day consider our offer to visit us in the U.S. We promise to improve our Spanish! Thank you again for one of the best vacations we have ever had.

Thank you so much for your beautiful words! It is even more valuable because you have been with us 8 days with the opportunity to get to know in detail every aspect of the village and our house! I hope you can come some other time. Thank you on behalf of Jose Luis, Silvana, Pilar, Sara, Mariví and me! And thanks for your invitation too!

We had booked for one night 03/04/14 and had Encina which has a balcony and a wonderful view of the castle. We rang at 2pm en route and asked Eva if we could still have the meat, cheese and wine plate - no problem! So glad we did as it was delicious and so relaxing when we arrived to sit on the balcony with. Silvana greeted us on arrival and was very welcoming and she had done a fabulous job of fixing it the food up for us. As she did with breakfast the next day which looked beautiful!
We liked it so much we called Eva and booked the next night too!
As this was a trip for my 50th birthday it was made more memorable by the great hospitality, great room and wonderful view.
We hope we make it back there soon!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the castle and balcony altho I am sure they are all very nice. Definitely...

Alquezar is a wonderful town that time has forgotten. Although it isn't the easiest place to find it is well worth the journey. This hotel offers a intimate bed and breakfast experience that will never be forgotten. The view of the caste, from our room, was unforgettable. The breakfast delivered to our room was fresh and delicious. My wife and I stayed here one night on our journey between Barcelona and Zaragoza. This is not a place for high maintenance people for you feel like you are staying at a friends home but I would recommend it to anyone. Disclaimer: My wife speaks fluent Spanish so that made the experience communicating with the front desk much easier.

Alquezar is a magical little medieval town. An excellent blend between culture and nature.
The hotel is located right in the center of the city. We stayed in the suite (loft style room) on the top floor and the view alone just make it very worthwhile to upgrade. From the room we had the best view in all of Alquezar and a large balcony to lounge around. The room is exceptionally clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. It is one of those hotels that you just want to spend the whole day relaxing in your room because it is just so perfect (and very romantic).

In term of services there wasn't much. Once we've checked-in they pretty much leave us to ourselves, which was great in the sense of privacy. The proprietor, Jose Louis was helpful in recommending us what to do or where to eat.
A breakfast trolly is served to the room every morning which was very nice.

Around town there are some excellent places to eat and things to see.
I would say that Alquezar is a place best enjoyed for 2 - 3 nights at a time.
However if you are a big outdoor/adventure person, Alquezar offers an extensive variety of activities from hiking, rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing and more so it might be worthwhile for some to stay longer.

For my fiancé and I Alquezar and Casa Alodia is an exceptional place where we created some of the best memories. An amazing place that we will definitely visit again.

Our second visit to Alquezar and the Alodia apartment. This is a magical place and the Alodia is a beautifully appointed building. Excellent furnishings, we upgraded to a top floor room with a mezzanine bedroom and balcony, which was great. A lovely breakfast, brought to the room.
I can not understand the other reviews complaining about the lack of parking, after all, this is a Medieval village, with very narrow streets, not suitable for modern traffic.
We will return.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor rooms.

Alquezar is breathtaking, and our room at Alodia was lovely, quite large, and with private balcony. Breakfast was delicious.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, parking is difficult. We couldn't locate the hotel, and my husband drove our car into the tiny town square (which was a mistake -- it was a pedestrian only zone). We asked around and were directed to the owner's home and rang his bell. He only spoke French (I speak a couple of words), but we were able to communicate -- he found us a parking spot, picked up our luggage and drove us -- in his car-- to Alodia!
Not your typical experience!
Off the beaten track, but worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

Thanks a lot for your comments! In fact, we try to offer a different experience in our house trough a personal treatment: picking you up if needed when getting lost, and offering the same decoration and quality in rooms as we have in our own house. We send all our clients a map to find Casa Alodia, which is just at the entrance of town, and we leave our movile phone to call us in advance in order to be waiting for you. It is better not to follow the GPS as it will take you to the inside of town, which is forbidden for non residents. It has been a pleasure to have you with us and I hope to see you next time!!
