This modern Parador is located on the edge the old town with easy access to all the attractions. Parking is available and is more than adequate The restaurant, while not very atmospheric, offers good food which pairs well with some of the local Bierzo wines. The service is friendly. Breakfast is, as in all Paradors, of a pretty high standard.... More

This hotel was nice, not as regal or elegant as the parador in Leon but to it's credit, it doesn't try to be. Pool was wonderful after walking 100km in 3 days. Check in staff were helpful and had great English. I ate in the restaurant which I thoroughly enjoyed. The roast lamb was awesome and the chestnut icecream (!!!... More

The hotel itself is spotless and very comfortable if lacking a little in personality. The staff are at very best bored and maybe even unfriendly, but my reason for writing this review is the food. In one word, it's awful. Been in the area for a week and eaten like a king for very little money. We were so looking... More

Most paradors are situated in old historic buildings. This a modern version which has been rebuilt in 2010 - the original was from the 1970s. It has all the usual comforts, spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms, large flat screen tvs, etc. The building is a bit soulless and there is no overriding reason to stay here compared to other modern hotels....

As youall know, the Paradores of Spain are converted catles, monasteries, abbys, with modern amenities and historical appointments. Not this one. This is a very comfortable, modernly appointed hotel that could pass for an out of the way Hilton. The rooms are nicely sized, withcomfortablebeds and linens, though nothing lush. Reception is very friendly, always with a smile. The beeakfast... More

This is a modern hotel that is conveniently located close to the highway that goes from Madrid to Galicia. The building has the style of a Novotel or similar, with no personality. The views are OK, but you have the highway on the first stage, which does not help. The service at the resection was abrupt and unfriendly, a bit... More

The only downside was that this was a generic modern hotel-could just as well be in North America or anywhere else in the world. On the positive side, the room was spacious, clean, beds were comfortable, and it was quiet. The bathroom likewise was large and well equipped- we particularly enjoyed the bathtub after a strenuous hike up the mountain... More

This parador is modern, and does not look like the other paradors I have stayed in, where the previous ones were in converted buildings. The rooms were large and had all the amenities of a five star hotel. There was a pool and a sauna too. Which is a good thing, as there is not much to do in the... More

A modern parador, but still a nice building. Rooms are a reasonable size and spotlessly clean. There was a wedding there the night we stayed, which we had been warned about in advance and given an option to cancel, but we weren't disturbed by noise. Staff were polite but not overly friendly, - that may have been the language, as... More

Stayed here for two nights. The room was large enough and was a standard room-we didn't feel it was worth upgrading. The pool was immaculate but cold which meant I virtually had it to myself. The town is nearby. We took the car in as we didn't realise how close it was but it is easy to walk into. Take... More
