Great atmosphere hotel in the main square. The building is authentic, rooms great, service good. Breakfast extensive, price more than reasonable. Bikes could be parked in a separate location in the hotel.

Thank God we only slept there one night, end of July. The hotel is located right on the main square, an old palace, beautiful but the rooms are outdated. Me and my family had booked 3 rooms. We arrived in the afternoon and there were 38 degrees Celsius outside. We got the keys and only after giving our passports, receiving from him nice historic information about the house and Zafra, and getting into our rooms, he then just happened to mention that air conditioning was NOT working. He talked like if it would have just broken and therefore he would bring us some fans for each room. I really regret we didn't leave the hotel at that very moment. It was very hot, all of us had a bad sleep and had a bad feeling since he should have mentioned it upfront! The worst is that I've read a review and 2 weeks later it still didn't work! I'm afraid that the hotel just doesn't have A/C and it looked like it wouldn't have heating since I saw on the flow some electric heaters. The worst of all is that opening the windows was not option due to the noise outside until at least 3:00 a.m.The rooms are big but outdated. A couple of lights were hanging out in the bathroom. The TV was far too small for the size of the room. The bathroom was not properly clean.The breakfast was poor. No fresh juice was offered. The breakfast room was dark. The offer for breakfast was just toasted bread, which was tasty but everything to put on top was coming from small cans, nothing fresh (from tomato, to liver spread, ham cream, cheese), low quality. Despite the cheap price I think it's better to find another place, I definitely can't recommend this hotel. I haven't rated it as terrible because the building itself is beautiful.

This hotel is situated right on the main square which is lovely and convenient, but parking for us was a problem - there was some festival going on so we had to park about 5 minutes away, which was OK, but we had a car full of stuff so weren't that happy leaving it on the street out of view. The owner was very helpful, although we did have to knock on the door to get in every time. He gave us a brief history lesson and had some strong views about Brexit! Our rooms were on the top floor with a lovely terrace with views over the square, however, it does get very noisy at night so if you had a room on a lower floor you may have been kept awake. There seemed to be a lot of lights which did not work in our room and bathroom, but they were both clean. We had a meal in the restaurant next door which was a little disappointing.

We made a stopover while driving from Spain to Portugal. Hotel Los Balcones de Zafra is located on the main square of the old town. It is a historic building. The innkeeper explains the details of guests with pride. Unfortunately, the hotel did not come up to our expectations. The rooms on the second floor was equipped with creaky, hard 150 cms wide bed. It was also to small in length for a 6ft tall person. The furniture seems to be a collection from the flea market, has strong signs of use and definite not antiques of any value. The bathroom is completely obsolete and only superficially clean. But the worst was the dirty state of the bath tub which serves as well as shower. W_LAN was unreliable and slow. On the square was noise from the bars until 03:00 AM and when the night owls finally left, the bars disposed the empty bottles in the glass containers. The breakfast room is located in the basement; is small and dark. Breakfast consists of two pieces buns from the day before that are reheated, jam, butter and some servings of low quality liver sausage and cheese. A visit to the hotel's restaurant is not recommended. A better address is the restaurant opposite in the Hotel Plaza Grande. Paid parking is available in front of the hotel. A prospected pleasant stay in a historic building turned out to be a flop. The ill-equipped rooms, the noise until the early morning hours, the dirty bathtub and the miserable breakfast are the reason not to recommend the place.

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 little faded, but it added to the general ambiance of the place- I loved it. Breakfast was table service, not your usual buffet style self self. A friendly and attentive waiter, fresh toast, fresh juice and coffee- really enjoyed this! However, do make sure that you heed the parking restrictions. You can unload outside the hotel, but you must park elsewhere. Again, the owner is very helpful about this, and none of the locations suggested are more than a few minutes walk away. There was also a private car park with driver service if required at 15 Euros (I think)- but we did not think that this was necessary for our one night stay. We will certainly be back to this hotel and would recommend it.
