This hotel is in the main square, so a great location. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly- he was eager to share the history of his gorgeous house (a 2000 year old Roman villa, beautifully restored), and was equally helpful suggesting places of interest in Zafra. We had a great room (205) overlooking the square, with a small balcony. It's...

A quirky hotel right in the centre of the old town. The owner gave us a very interesting guided tour and a lot of good advice on places of interest and places to eat. Our room was comfortable, clean and with a good bathroom. We had access to the roof terrace overlooking Plaza Grande which was a real bonus. The...

Fabulous location, fabulous building, friendly service. We had a lovely clean and well appointed room overlooking the square, which on a Saturday night meant very little sleep, but that's hardly the fault of the hotel. Average breakfast, usual 'tostados' and not much else, but that's just the Spanish way. I would recommend this place, but maybe ask for a room...

Of all the hotels I've stayed in over this holdiay wandering around Spain this hotel has to be one of the best. We pick a spot on the map and head for it - not knowing where we will end up. I picked Zafra. My sense of direction must be good as we ended up in the middle of 2...

We stayed one night at the Hotel Los Balcones de Zafra. The hotel was a great fine! The owner was delightful. The room was clean. The history behind the hotel and what was found recently during the rennovations is super interesting.

I was pleasantly surprised. I had booked a much more expensive place to stay but changed my mind at the last minute and am glad I did. The owner was such a gracious host. He showed us around the hotel and explained its history which made our stay even more enjoyable. Our room had a large balcony that looked over...

Finally, we stayed one night more in Zafra for the nice town and this wonderful hotel. I can feel the owner's pride of this old house when I just arrived Plaza Grande. And it's really well decorated and presented. With a very nice guide by the owner, we visited whole this historic building and got some stories of it. It...

I was tempted to stay at the Parador but was drawn to this hotel and was glad I chose to stay. Spent 2 nights in Room # 206 which was a large double room on the 2nd floor with 2 small balconies opening to the main plaza. There was even a small sitting area with a couple of chairs and...

My husband and I stayed at Los Balcones in Zafra for four nights and used it as a central base to visit Trujillo,, Merida and Caceres. The location for travel was perfect, but what made it really special was the warm welcome from the owner, and his immense pride in this hotel. As other guests have recorded, we were told...

This hotel was probably the nicest we stayed in during a multi-city trip to Spain in Oct. and Nov. of 2010. It is owned and was the ancestral home of a noble Spanish family and has been continually inhabited since Roman times. Francisco, the owner, is very proud of the hotel and gave us a tour of the premises, including...
