Of the several places I stayed in over 7 weeks of travel, this was my favourite stay. My ground floor suite had a delightful little patio that looked out onto the tree-filled garden, the kitchenette was well-equipped, bathroom was spacious, and the bed linens were quality. (The only place where I had the option of down pillows, ahhh) And this beautiful little hotel has elements of the 16th century yet is completely modern.
However, the best aspect of El Baciyelmo has to be hosts Herman and Karla. They clearly want their guests to feel at home, and provide an inviting environment without ever being intrusive. Just lovely, thoughtful people.
This is the first time I’ve given a perfect score of 10.
No puedo valorar en singular porque me gusto todo. Es un lugar con mucho encanto para descubrir una ciudad que es preciosa. Puedes llegar a todos los puntos de interes andando, plaza mayor, monumentos, iglesias, ocio, restauracion, esta cerca de una cafeteria que prepara unas tostas de ibérico deliciosas, su propietario amabilísimo, te asesora con todo, la cama es comodisima, la ducha una maravilla, encontrarte productos weleda para el aseo una grata sorpresa, las vistas al patio desde nuestro estudio, la tranquilad y el silencio del que disfrutamos, que disponga de suelo radiante que lo hace super confortable en dias de frio, sin sentir el agobio de la calefacción. Volveria a elegirlo sin dudar!
Me gusto todo.
La habitación súper acogedora y con todo lo imprescindible! Los anfitriones fantasticos! La habitación estaba súper calentita todo el día, era fantástico andar descalza porque el suelo ardía!!! La estancia genial!!!!
Everything! I think this is one of the best places I have stayed in Spain. My room was beautifully decorated and very stylish. The bathroom was also very stylish and really modern, with a fantastic rainfall shower head. The Weleda toiletries are a really nice touch. My room was really quiet and peaceful which helped me sleep very well. The room had a small kitchenette equipped with everything you need for breakfast, lunch or light meals. It was a really treat to get cola-coa as well as tea and coffee in the cupboard. The garden is beautiful I really enjoyed spending time there – so much so that I spent some time there every day I was staying! The small pool is lovely and very refreshing. One really generous touch is that they will do laundry free of charge which is a blessing when you are travelling for a while. But on top of all this, this is a wonderful place to stay as Karla and Herman are such friendly, welcoming and kind hosts, giving loads of recommendations about visiting the town and where to eat. They were veeu kind in helping me with my onward journey, offering me a lift as they were going in that direction, definitely not something that would happen most places! I really enjoyed getting to know them a little over the days I stayed!
Herman and his wife are wonderful people who are so eager for you to enjoy your stay. Nothing was too much trouble and you could never leave or walk in without a pleasant conversation with either or both of them. They are magnificent hosts who fully deserve their high rating. We had a room with terrace that we took full advantage of. Location could not be better for all that Trujillo has to offer. Herman – hartelijk dank en tot the volgende keer.
Werkelijk alles was perfect voor elkaar! De gastvrije ontvangst en tips, het smaakvol ingerichte appartement, perfect schoon en alles in topconditie, de locatie in het centrum vlakbij het grote plein, de relaxte tuin met zwembadje en hangmat, de comfortabele bedden en stoelen, en eigenlijk gewoon te goedkoop !!
Dat we weer verder moesten….
¡TODO! Karla y Herman te tratan como si fueras de la familia desde el minuto 1. Nuestro apartamento era precioso, amplio, silencioso y sobre todo muy cómodo. ¡La cama es una maravilla!
Nos hemos sentido como en casa y estamos deseando poder volver muy pronto.
Las habitaciones son una monada, decoradas con muchísimo gusto, baño enorme y muy luminoso. Cocina más que suficiente para pasar unos días y muy bien equipada con todo tipo de utensilios de cocina (tostadora, cafetera italiana, microondas, exprimidor, hervidor de agua…)
El patio trasero que tienen es un pequeño paraíso y con unos limones riquísimos!!
Aunque, sin duda, lo mejor de esta casona son sus dueños!! una familia maravillosa que, si estás dispuesto, estarán encantados de ayudarte a conocer la tierra en la que han decidido pasar parte de sus vidas y que la quieren como si fuese la suya propia :))
No disponíamos de coche y nos dieron todo tipo de facilidades para hacer planes por la zona, nos trataron como si fuésemos uno más de la familia.
Recomendaremos este lugar a todo aquel que quiera parar en el maravilloso Trujillo y pasar unos días en total tranquilidad y “desconexión” del mundo.
La pena: No poder estar más tiempo allí y conociendo a esta familia, son encantadores!! Gracias por cómo nos tratasteis Herman y Karla 😀 😀
The hotel had an ideal location near to the centre of town. We really liked our room, which was big with some small kitchen facilities so we could make some lunch when we wanted to. As it gets hot in Trujillo, the garden (with a small pool/plunge pool) was a great place to cool down. We were also very well looked after by the owners, who gave us lots of good tips for the area. We would come again!
Mi estancia ha sido espectular y maravillosa. Los dueños de la casa han sido muy amables y la ubicación del hotel excelente. Ha superado mis expectativas, es tener un oasis en Trujillo. Volveremos. Lo recomiendo.
Herman et Karla sont des gens merveilleux, toujours aux petits soins pour leurs hôtes, polyglotes de surcroit. On ressent chez eux tout l’amour qu’ils portent à leur métier et à Trujillo. Quel plaisir le soir de prendre un verre sur la terrasse de notre appartement (agréable et agencé avec goût) face au petit jardin. Quant à Trujillo, c’est tout simplement un endroit magique, notamment le soir, la Plaza Mayor et tous les monuments illuminés ! Petite ville avec énormément de charme, l’endroit où on a forcément envie de retourner un jour…….
Die Betreuung der mehrsprachigen Gastgeberfamilie war außergewöhnlich gut. Herman gab uns die besten Tipps in sehr gutem Deutsch. Die Unterkunft ist nahe dem Plaza Mayor sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Anmietung eines Garagenplatzes (3-4 Häuser weiter) ist möglich, da vorteilhaft. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
De studio was vrij groot en heel proper en van alle gemakken voorzieningen. Herman en Karla waren super gastvrij, niets was teveel en we kregen heel veel info over Trujillo. als je wilt, is er een gratis wasdienst. Er is ook een garage voor 5.50 euro per dag en dit alles in het centrum van Trujillo. Muchas gracias Herman y Carla y hasta la proxima!!!
El apartamento es tal cual se ve en las fotos, solo que hay detalles que no se pueden ver, se aprecian y disfrutan una vez que estas allí, como la calidad de los productos de cortesía a disposición del cliente del baño y cocina, la ropa de cama y baño también de calidad, el confort de las instalaciones, el trato exquisito recibido por el dueño. Repetiremos con mejor tiempo y a disfrutar de alguno de sus apartamentos con vistas al jardin, que en esta ocasión estaban ocupados.
La habitación fantástica. El trato super amable.La decoración con mucho gusto. En general totalmente recomendable.
“Our arrival at this establishment was way earlier than the usual check in time and yet our hosts received us outside the property with joy, a smile and a really warm welcome! Our luggage (heavy!) was whisked up to the upper floor apartment which was beautiful and overlooking a charming garden and pool area. Our hosts Herman and Karla are true hosts with a passion for making guests feel comfortable and informed as to the sights, sounds and good restaurants in the area. Particularly useful when one only has two nights and one ful day to take it all in. A Really, really nice touch for us was the fact that our host Herman offered to take us to the bus station for our departure early on a Sunday morning. Look no further if you plan to visit Trujillo!”
“The owner does everything he can to make you feel comfortable, not to mention the fact that he has probably more information about the region than the tourist office itself. You get Northern-European quality in a place where it’s not the standard.”
“We liked the hospitality of the owners. Immediately we felt a home. Nothing was too much for them. Dank je wel, Herman en Karla!! Also the building is nice, a wonderful combination of old and modern. The studio was spacious and comfortable, all equipment and amenities of good quality. Just the sound of the birds in the morning…. And only a two minute walk to the most beautiful Plaza Mayor in Spain.”
Outstanding hospitality at these family-owned and managed apartments. Superb comfort and care in every aspect. Lovely garden and small swimming pool. Best pillows in the world! Everyday cleaning unexpected, personal laundry bag whisked away and returned ironed. Personal concern extended to the warning not to go onto the streets again until after 7 pm. Far more relaxing and comfortable than the two Spanish five star places I have stayed in. Go to Trujillo and stay at El Baciyelmo!
From start to finish we could not have wished for better hosts. All contact was responded to immediately. When we asked to alter our arrival time we were informed that we could check in earlier than advertised if we wished to do so. We were advised by Hermann that if we wanted a more peacefull stay then we could upgrade to the garden view appartment. We did this and were pleased that we did as the absence of noise was excellent, something we have never found during our past frequent visits to Spain. I do not really think that there would be excessive noise in the rooms to the front of the building as the road is not overly busy. The Hotel itself is a small family run establishment where thought has been put into every detail so as to make the guests stay as comfortable as possible. The building itself keeps its Ancient characteristics from the outside but has a comfortable welcoming modern contempary feel to the inside. The room has a spacious feel, a small kitchenette, a comfortable sofa and good quality dining table and chairs. The bed was really comfortable and We managed three good nights sleep as well as a couple of good siestas. The bathroom again was very well presented. I enquired about the advertised Ironing facilities and was informed that if we needed any laundry doing they would wash and iron for us free of charge as part of the service. We had travelled to Spain in the car and had pre booked the parking at a very reasonable 5.5 euros. I had expected to be crammed into a small uncovered parking spot was supprised to get covered parking in a secure internal garage just a few strides from the accomodation. We were helped with all of our luggage back to the car on departure. We would like to thank Karla and Herman for the hospitality they showed to us and the local information they provided.
La pena: It is not something that I do not like as I very rarely use one, but the swimming pool is more of a plunge pool although with a good depth. Towels are provided though. We did spend a very pleasent two hours sat in the garden on our first day.
Words cannot describe the quality of this property or the hospitality of the owners Herman and Karla. All I can say is that on a scale of 0 – 10 a reasonable score would be 20. Yes, that’s twenty! Until I met Herman I thought only Steve Jobs and I were the only perfectionists but now I know there is a third! Amazing!
