The location of this hotel is great, right on the main square, ancient palace, looked like it had good facilities with the Roman baths. But that's really where the dream ended, the pools at the entrance were drained and looked like they had not been filled for months, the small fountains in the entrance courtyard too was empty. Then when... More

Excited by the description but disappointed by the reality. We got a good price on-line compared to the book price but none of the facilities, including the bar and the restaurant, were available due to a wedding taking place. The wedding noise went on until the early hours of the morning. We were unable to find a suitable place to... More

Our first impressions of the hotel were good, we were impressed with the olde worlde look of the castle, however this is where it ended. The room smelt of damp, probably because of the large damp patch in the bathroom. Wifi was not available in the rooms furthest from reception and the phones on the second floor didn't work :S...

The spa and pools are not available during the week. These are open only 16:00-21:00 on weekend. The hotel is located in the old palace but don't expect palace rooms )) these are very normal hotel rooms. We stayed in similar place (15 century palace) in south Italy - that was really like in a palace. Wifi is slow and... More

A very comfortable, modern hotel in an ancient setting of an old castle. Good parking and close to main north/south routes. Typical old Spanish town with little going on of interest but situation of castle makes up for it.

There a no words to describe this amazing unique medieval castle turned into an enchanted hotel in the middle of Andalucia. A magical place for relaxation, getaway, medieval rooms decorated in brute stone floors and walls. Confiters and extra large quality beds. Private terrace to the middle age castle's patio. Outstanding customer service and definitely a place from now on... More

We only stayed here for one night during our trip through Andalucia, but we were very impressed by this lovely and luxury hotel. Would've loved to stay a few days longer. It's a real 'Palace' indeed. The owners clearly did not cut their expenses when renovating. Mengibar is a small town so when you stay here for some more time... More

The hotel was easy to find, great situation in the centre of town, with parking, perfect for a stop between Madrid and the south. Nice breakfast, friendly staff, comfortable beds... we will no doubt return! The palace is really gorgeous. Mengibar is not really a destination, just a convenient little town off the motorway, but there are several bars where... More

I have been looking for a hotel to stay close to Jaen close to two years. This hotel certainly is not aimed at tourist who have no way of transport from and to the city but if you do, I would certainly not doubt in choosing this option. The decor if the hotel is spectacular as well as the spaciousness... More
