This was my fourth Parador stay during this visit to Spain. Set on the top of a mountain it was impressive from afar, and upon arrival, great views etc. Check-in was easy, they also sorted out my Amigo's card problems too. However, the room was small, I mean 4m x 4m, never have I encountered such a small and sparse... More

The parador is in a spectacular location but it is disappointing that the dining rooms and the bar do not have any views. If you stay here book a room with a terrace on the top floor and bring a bottle of sherry or wine to enjoy sitting out on the terrace enjoying the views. And hope that your neighbor... More

Stayed for one night in April. Room was lovely, with fabulous views from our balcony. Very comfortable bed and pillow with nice bedding, although made up with sheets and blankets rather than duvets, which I would have preferred. Dinner in the beautiful restaurant was average, but the staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. On the downside, wifi was not... More

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
