Beautiful restoration, superior materials in wood, tile, stone, windows, shutters. Everything unique. Location and the views are amazing. Walk the grounds and be sure to make it out to large crucifix. Arrive at parador with what you want for evening you will not want to leave. Sunset from balcony. Divine. We enjoyed dinner in dining room. Staff was attentive, food... More

Really enjoyed the stay in the parador- the views are fantastic, and there's not many hotels with suits of armour for decoration. My main criticism is that access is very difficult for those without a car- it is a 45 minute walk into town, and uphill all the way back. Sure, you can take a taxi, but you wouldn't want... More

Haven't really slept in a parador before, but did visited some and or had a drink... this parador is one of the nicest one I had seen. Friendly staff, super breakfast buffet, although dinner was not that great. we were offered a superior room for the price of a standard room. Fantastic view from our balcony. Everything clean, luxuries... Felt... More

If you've stayed in a Parador before you'll know that they offer lovely tasteful accommodation at a price lower than similar hotels in other countries? This one is no different. We had a lovely room with balcony and great views. Ok the rooms may be slightly tired but that does not reduce ones enjoyment at being there. Friendly staff and... More

Located on top of a hill overlooking the lovely town of Jaen. At present the entrance to this lovely Parador is decorated with rather gaudy Christmas decorations. We had our room upgraded to a superior room. Lovely views from the balcony. Interesting public rooms as the Parador was formerly a Moorish castle. The architecture and ceiling of the sitting room...

We reserved a superior room having stayed here before and knowing the superior rooms were just that-superior. Room 33 had a double wide balcony with a beautiful view. It was at the end of the hall, so it was very quiet. Large bath, entry sitting area and good size bedroom. The Parador is in the old castle overlooking the town... More

The location of the parador is great on top of a hill with a spectacular view. We could see the sunrise and sunset from the balcony in our room. If you want a different stay than in a regular hotel choose this parador. Nice dinner and breakfast. The parador lies isolated so you must have a car to go around.... More

The views from the rooms and around the property are really beautiful. My wife and I enjoyed romantic breakfasts on our balcony overlooking the mountains. ***One nice service of the parador: it is free of charge to have breakfast delivered to your room, assuming you have purchased one of the board options.

Our return to this Parador is even more breath taking than the first time. The weather was perfect for sitting on our balcony and enjoying the view of the valley below. The front of the hotel provided had an equally amazing view of the city. Rooms are comfortable. Public rooms reflect the mid evil past of the castle. Staff very... More
