Stayed here for 3 days last week and enjoyed It very much. The room was lovely with spectacular views from the balcony. Jaen, as said before, is not really a tourist place but the cathedral is worth a visit. If you hanker after a proper cup of tea, then see Felix in the cafeteria. He was a star amongst the... More

The location of this Parador is quite stunning with magnificent views of the surrounding area and located next to the Castle. As with quite a lot of Paradors, the drive up, because of their high positioning, is a little scary. Parking was at a premium but we managed. We did not stay, merely visited to view it and have lunch.... More

We had initially hoped to spend 4 nights here. Arrival was challenging, with the parador significantly out of the town, leading to plumping for taxis later rather than risk the drive up and down. Parking was in very short supply that afternoon, ad in fact the area was in complete chaos. The senior receptionist is in great need of retraining,... More

Everybody was very impressed. My kids loved it. We had 2 rooms next to each other with door between. The staff was very friendly and helped with all requests. I wish we stayed longer. And of cause, what a view! There is castle you can visit and short walk to the cross with view of the cathedral. The restaurant is... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this parador, which I would say is the highlight of jaen. The location is breathtaking, although a little hairy to get to. Well worth the effort though. We were given a lovely room, 33, which has splendid views and a generous terrace as well as being sympathetically furnished, yet practical for the modern traveller.... More

Stunning location above the town of Jaen. Some comments have been made about the loss of original features in the renovation of this parador but i think its been sympathically and effectively done. Had room 44 which was large and comfortable with a big balcony overlooking the hills. Like Granada bars in Jaen serve tapas with drinks but take a... More

The Parador de Turismo de Jaén is truly impressive.You circle the Santa Catalina hill, you think it will never end,and as you get closer to this majestic Alcazaba, you realize that Spain is no ordinary country. Views from the balconies ( we had room 28) are dramatic as sun, mountain and skies are truly talking to you ...The interior is... More

Nice gimmick if you are too far from town to access another restaurant. After four weeks in Spain and visits to other Paradores this one was a complete mess. The meal was overpriced crap and simply not that good. The staff was incapable of getting an order correct and my wife was served 45 minutes after myself. While the hotel... More

the hotel is beautifully located at the mountin side with spectacular views on both sides. Some rooms - the lower numbered ones - enjoy a balcony. Advisable!! The rooms are spacious, but show signs of wear and tear. Specially the bathroom could do with some detailled modernization. The rooms are decorated according to Spannish style, much dark wood and old... More
