We stayed here for 3 nights on a short stopover in Ceuta. The hotel is in a great location between the royal walls and Plaza Afrique and 5 minute walk from the main pedestrian strip with lots of shopping and restaurants. It is also a 5 minute taxi ride (€5) to the Moroccan border. The rooms were spacious very clean... More

This is a very nice hotel although somewhat dated in decor. It is in Spain and in North Africa. We checked in sort of late and went to the bar for a beer before going for a walkaround town. There is no ATM in the hotel. The bar was nice and reasonably priced. The hotel was very well priced. We... More

No one seems to have taken money in the hand to revamp this place since Manuel Fraga had it built in the 60´s. A refurbishment is of highest urgency. A more dedicated management would not harm either. All personnel seem to be desinterested and do their work mechanically. When I arrived a piece of plastic was on the carpet, going... More

This place needs to be renovated rapidly and well. But it wont be, the nature of the Paradores (state owned) means that it will not be renovated to anywhere near the standard it should be to do it justice. 5 years ago Paradores were great, this one needs help. However, we had a lovely time, décor doesn't make a holiday.... More

We were a little disappointed in the decor of the Parador, it does not match the standard of many of the other Paradors we have visited and it is showing its age. However, the setting was magnificent. We had a terrace which looked over the Strait to the Rock of Gibraltar. The Parador is within walking distance of most of... More

Yes, it's a tad old-fashioned, but that's part of its charm. It is very well sited and you either get a seaview and see the military next door, or look over the pool and the cathedral square, great for watching the bride arrive! The rooms are large and comfortable, bathrooms a bit antiquated but clean. The pool area with lawn... More

I spent one night at Parador Hotel La Muralla and I believe its distinguishing features are the size of the rooms and the location. Although I was traveling alone, I had a huge room complete with a living space, balcony and two queen beds. The beds were comfortable, though thankfully the weather was just the right temperature because I couldn't... More

We spent one night in this parador and we left with mixed feelings. The decoration really needs an upgrade, as the last time the hotel was refurbished it must have been in the eighties. The views are stunning. It just felt a little old style and too quiet. Staff was nice though.

The building and appointments while dowdy are clean and well maintained. We arrived after a long rainy day in Tangier. The staff was happy to see us and check us in until we had a question. At that point we were an intrusion and treated as such. A perfect example, in the bar we asked and received a menu and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The lovely city of Ceuta stands between two seas. And gazing out at them from a spectacular spot is the Parador, a modern building abutting the ancient Royal Walls, located in the center of the town. The vaults of the former artillery depot were erected on top of the walls. Today they have been converted into fantastic hotel suites. The Parador de Ceuta is a modern building surrounded by a garden of magnificent palm trees, with a swimming pool enveloped by the breeze from the sea just a few meters away. The building and décor reveal obvious Arab and Andalusian influences. You will love details such as the lamps and the bright guest rooms. ... more   less
