We stayed for 1 night at the Parador de Cardona and it didn't disappoint... how many other places can you stay in a castle?! Our room overlooked the courtyard of the castle and to the town of Cardona beyond - gorgeous. The room was spacious and comfortable and still retained some of the character of the castle while having modern... More

My wife and I stayed here last week for one night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You have free run of a castle, and how many times do you get to say that. The rooms take up a lot of the space, so the castle does not feel as big as it looks. The views from the castle tower are... More

My wife and I stayed here as a treat during our recent holiday. No regrets! It was a great place to stay. Room was big. Bed comfortable, and bathroom/shower etc was great! They have a in -house restaurant which serves fantastic food as well. Restaurant is located under the castle - very cool!! Well worth staying here if you want... More

We stayed here a year ago (I'm a bit delayed in writing my trip advisor reviews!). I was a bit hesitant to book here, as we actually wanted to go to Barcelona, and it is about a 2 hour drive from Barcelona, but I'm so glad we made this side trip for a few nights! This parador must have one... More

On the approach to this Parador you start to get a sense of travelling back in time. The age of the castle is evident, that is until you move inside. The staff were very friendly & at the same time professional. The room was wonderful & full of character. All modern amenities & facilities. In the restaurant the food was... More

Only 1.5hrs from Barcelona, this castle is a gem. It is beautiful with a lot of history. I would not agree with others that this castle is in need of repairs. It is old. It has history but it certainly is not falling apart. We arrived mid-afternoon. There is not much to do there once you check in other than... More

That is what we feet like when we checked into this old Castle. The views from the room are unbelievable. High on the hill overlooking the town it is easy to see why this was a very important location. Be sure to visit the salt mines.

This is a truly wonderful Parador. The room on the top floor was very comfortable, but the shower was not very good. Along with other Paradores the shower was over the bath. A practice I think to be extremely dangerous. The cafeteria/bar terrace gave to great panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and a very good view of the salt... More

It's hardly surprising that the Cardona Parador figures in the "best 10 castle hotels in Europe" list as it sits amongst the structure of the old castle and church. You can see the Parador/castle from afar, and its elevated position gives stunning views over the Pyrenees in one direction and the jagged peaks of Monserrat in the other. The castle... More

This is a beautiful castle with outstanding views but badly needing better managers. The hallways carpets/runners are in bad shape, severely stained and some walls need painting. Breakfast was disappointing twice as we had to wait forever for burned omelets and for empty trays to be replenished. Due to the bad experiences with our two breakfasts, we avoided the restaurant...
