The hotel is well situated in the small town of Palma del Rio, which is a very handy base for touring the area and within a couple of hour of Seville and Cordoba. Although really an ancient monument, the hotel retains its original design and charm, whilst providing modern bedrooms, with comfortable beds, spacious quiet rooms, and fully modernised en... More

We traveled to this charming hotel for a friend's wedding. Palma del Río is a small town approximately 1 hour from Sevilla. It is a small town, but rich with history and close proximity to Sevilla and Córdoba. The highest rating hotel in Palma is 3 stars and the bride recommended Monasterio or Hotel Castillo. We chose Monasterio due to... More

We stayed at this hotel on our bike tour and we were given one of the worst rooms in the hotel (we saw photos of other people's rooms which looked much nicer). The bed sagged in the middle, pillows were frayed with no pillowcases and the showers curtain was a wisp of plastic. Yuck! To give this hotel 3 stars... More

This hotel is a restored/converted 15th monistary. The rooms are the converted monks cells. Very roomy. Furnishings are simple which just adds to the ambiance. Authentic antiques line the halls. Bells ring every 15min during the day but go quiet at night. A unique place to stay.

We stayed as part of a larger group of VBT bike touring.. Large rooms, monastery grounds nice, limited seating around pool, this town doesn't have much to see and was a biking location for the tour..beds nice, breakfast good, dark bar area with not much life to it, but again, you can't compare to chain hotels, a nice experience

This is a historical monastery and as such it has rather simple looking rooms. I was worried that the beds would not be comfortable but I was wrong. Our room was clean and spacious. The whole place was fun to explore. We had a lovely dinner there that was very good. I really enjoyed staying here.
