Alquezar is one of our favourite places - we love the walking in the hills and canyons that surround the fortress town, as well as the choice of bars and restaurants. We also love the small village of Asque a few kilometers away where you can find hidden gems - we spent a lovely afternoon in one bar drinking bottled Heineken in the sun at less than a Euro a bottle! - though the walk does involve some steep hills.
We have stayed at the hotel Villa de Alquezar three times and would recommend that you ask for room 31, a luxury room on the top floor with the best views of the castle as well as the largest balcony. The room has been recently redecorated in a stylish mix of old and modern. You will find everything you need in the room, including flat screen television if you can drag yourself away from the spectacular views from your balcony that is.
My only gripe about the hotel is breakfast. The food is already on the table no matter what time you arrive and is nearly always the same combination. As someone who prefers croissants to cake I was disappointed to only have that option one day out of a five night stay. You are restricted to one glass of orange yet it is concentrate and not fresh. On the table is a plate of tomatoes, a plate of the 'fruit of the day', a plate of meat, a bowl of cakes and so on. The only warm option is some toasted bread that is brought to your table. So much waste when I would be happy with a few slices of toast or a couple of croissants. I don't understand this approach except that I imagine it is just the way they have always done it and they have never asked guests what they think of the arrangement.
A big plus for the hotel is the on-site car park as space is tight in this old medieval town. Room prices are reasonable, staff are friendly and the hotel also has wi-fi as well as a separate bar area, lounge area and pretty garden.
