Another former monastery converted into a grandeur Parador with lovely inner courtyard and interior design, everything is maintained as original as possible. Room is bit outdated which is common in every Parador in Spain due to difficult times for the last previous years in all Euro region. However, room is quite comfortable and big with extra bed for good night... More

Fantastic location. Lovely building with great restaurant. Rooms had large bathrooms and traditional furniture, very atmospheric. Overlooking the gorge there’s a really unusual pedestrian iron bridge. Stunning location. Interior courtyard is very pleasant. Of all the Parador hotels I have stayed at, this ranks in the top 5

We stop by at the hotel for coffee on the way to Valencia. It is a four star hotel. The scenery is beautiful and breathtaking. The coffee and tea were good and we had it in the courtyard, wish we have time to stay overnight. There is a restaurant there where you can have your meal.

We had a lovely stay in this parador. Pool was nice though a bit chilly at first. Views are incredible. The staff really friendly and helpful. The room comfortable, clean and quiet. We had dinner on the terrace of the hotel to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed the meal which was presented at a nice slow pace as it gave... More

We stayed 1 night only on the 11th June, our room was excellent, spacious with separate bathroom and with fantastic views of the hanging houses and the wonderful old bridge. After spending most of the day looking around the old town, we returned to the hotel and had dinner in the restaurant, the food and service was excellent and very... More

We stayed only for 1 night and had a very good evening and night! After walking along the historical neighbourhood we relaxed having dinner at the Parador's restaurant which turned out to be the best decision we could have taken! Sitting in the center courtyard of the old convent, eating one delicious dish after another and enjoying quiet music by... More

Hotel is in good condition and the venue is certainly memorable. the rooms were spacious, clean, complete with all required modern amenities; and if you need THE view make sure to request it. The restaurant for dinner and evening snacks was adequate. Breakfast buffet is ample and caters for all tastes. Be sure to request parking in the interior garage... More

Thank you for you opinion. Now in Summer we are reforming the gym, but the pool with wonderful views is open. And no problem for "siesta", no works on that time. More

Very definitely on the tourist trail Cuenca has all the usual tourist shops but yet retains a unique character. The Parador built from an older convent building, had splendid views of the hanging houses and is a very short walk away from the old town. Rooms are spacious with large bathrooms. Notably also our room was equipped with fittings suitable... More

The Parador is a "non smoking hotel" but outside, in the cloister, 18 m. x 21 m. = 378m2 our Guests can smoke. For dinner, our Restaurant, open all the year from 08:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Thank you for your opinion. More

We have been at a number of Paradores hotels, and this generally lives up to the experience. We got a room that smelled of cigarette, staff changed to a better room without any problems. Highly recomenable, not the least for the location in an old monastery. If anything, it would be that we got the feeling that the hotel is... More
