Make sure you book a superior room with a balcony and a view and you won't regret it. Rooms are a bit tired like most Paradors are now but the staff are very helpful. Parking is available in the square outside the hotel but places can be hard to find and our car was scraped twice in the four days... More

Walked up to the viewpoint and went into this hotel bar for coffee. No other customers there. Waited for 10 mins enjoying view from panoramic windows but no staff seen. Went to reception to ask if there was bar service and was told a colleague would be there in a minute but 10 mins later still no one. We four... More

My wife and I recently spent a night in this parador and can report that we will be returning soon. The hotel is in heart of the historic centre of Arcos, a beautiful, small Andalucian town. The hotel is perched on top of the cliff and our room had a large balcony over the edge! The views are absolutely stunning.... More

Phenomenal view over the valley, great location. The hotel was clearly once a classic but is definitely now dated. Still - we didn't expect too much in a small town in Andalucia. Service could have been more friendly and warm.

Visited Arcos during their annual Live Nativity and I was able to lock into a superior room at the Parador. Very nice Spanish accommodations. Someone should have told us parking was at the bottom of the hill! My only complaint and not sure if it was due to the annual celebration.

Gorgeous old historic building remodeled into a hotel, with modern plumbing and antique furniture. Nice! The views from the rooms with balconies are stunning. Sunrise and sunset are gorgeous, with the Parador perched right on the cliff. The balconies enable that great photo, and create a romantic spot to sit and watch the world go by in the far distance...

The bedside area rugs are filthy. The furniture is scratched and filthy. The closet smells. Our room faced a square which has what is apparently a music school across the way. Forget an afternoon nap. The adjacent church rings its bell each half hour. A request for two extra pillows was greeted as if I asked for two extra beds.... More

This Parador like so many is an interesting historic building. Superb views from terraces and some rooms. The food is good/OK not outstanding. The staff are extremely helpful. Access by caris not for the faint hearted, interesting!

Charming parador with beautiful valley view from room 8. Problem is driving up and down from there and it is a centuries old building so very musty. Stayed 2 nights and only 1 would have been fine. Tried to cancel after 1 night and would not allow it. Drove to Seville one day and back for sightseeing. Not much to... More

Like all the Paradors, it is not cheap, but you are paying for charming, history and, of course, the view. I managed to get up there with an SUV, it is possible but not without getting a little nervous with the narrow streets as you climb. If you can, waking up in a room with a view is really worthwhile.... More
