Eating and sleeping in Segovia
Los Arcos hotel
In the Best Place
In my first time in Segovia I stayed in this hotel. Good hotel, excellent location, a little bit pricy.
In my second visit I went to another hotel, cheaper, farther, reasonable.
In my third visit I tried the cheaper one, which had no vacancy. I checked Los Arcos, and… surprise! The prices were falling down, even cheaper than the other.
I choose it, and found the same quality as before. So, my advice is… do check the prices.
The hotel is one of the best in town, and, at promotional rates, it’s surely a good business. For instance, when writing this tip I checked their actual prices, and they were selling 133 € rooms for… 50. Good!

Puerta de Segovia hotel
I used this hotel in my second visit to Segovia. It was a cheap solution, in mid class hotels, and worked fine. The only problem was the 2 ks distance from the centre of town, but as I needed to go each day to La Granja de San Ildefonso, the location was perfect (closer, and with easy access).
In my third visit to Segovia it was complete, so I went to Los Arcos, where, for my surprise, the prices were lower.

José Maria – Food and Ambiance
You will surely see the local performance of cutting the suckling pig only by hitting it with the edge of a dish. We saw it at Jose Maria, where we were taken for the first time by local politicians (experts, I presume).
A delicious meal, repeated several times, without local company. I went to Segovia for the first time in 2002, and after that I’ve been there at least once a year. Jose Maria became my natural restaurant, and its location, a few meters from the cathedral turns the way to and from the restaurant into a very pleasant walk.
Favorite Dishes: Matanza, judiones, cochinillo
