We celebrated our wedding at the Alcala Parador last Saturday. The quality of the service we and our guests have received has been truly outstanding. The location at the heart of Alcala's stunning historic city centre and the wonderful venue guided our choice but the service quality has been even a bigger highlight. We had +80 guests travelling from overseas... More

The Parador de Alcala de Henares is very conveniently located at approx 20min from Barajas airport (Madrid) and 20 min from Madrid city center. Although this is basically a business hotel, the venue is definitely recommended to stay on a private basis. Beautifully restored building in minimalistic design, yet everything oozes a warm and elegant atmosphere. The inner courtyard is... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this Parador immensely. The innovative structure marries the remaining features from the historical building with the design and facilities of a four-star hotel, and the location within Alcala is great. Our room was fantastic, but perhaps most pleasing was the fact that the appropriately attentive staff went out of their way to... More

This is a beautifully restored convent, turned hotel. I have nothing but praise for the redesign of the place which is sympathetic yet modern. It is lovely to walk into a hotel room which doesn't have the standard layout. My room was huge, well designed, spotless and comfortable. Loved the shower! I was there on business but can easilt see... More

This Parador is hosted in a XVII century building, but do not expect to find ancient furnitures or old ages atmospheres... everything has been restored in a modern way, which is a little in conflict with the expectations for an "historical" Parador. Anyway even if inside it seems more a modern wellness centre instead of a convent, the building is... More

My husband and I have stayed at a number of Paradores and adore them. We chose to stay at Alcala de Henares while we were visiting Madrid. The Parador is fantastic. Yes, there is part of it that has been built in a historic building, but everything is updated and modern. The rooms are elegant Spanish design, with limestone bathrooms... More

I only spent one night at Parador de Alcala, but what an experience! Compared to other hotels in the neighbourhood, price is high but looking at what you get, price is more than justifiable. Rooms are very spacious, tasty designed, wifi is free throughout the hotel and connection is excellent. Breakfast is good. Only negative point: my room's A/C was... More

The Parador de Alcala de Henares is a modern hotel hidden in a historic shell. The rooms are sleek and super comfortable, spacious enough to accommodate an extra bed so our daughter could share our quarters. (We were in Alcala de Henares to visit her while she attends the university there.) The shower was particularly 21st century! Breakfast was delicious,... More

I really like this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, modern and quiet. The bathroom sofisticated and practical. Location is great, just metres away from the city centre in the heart of the old town. The restaurant is good, however I was expecting more given the high scores given and how good the rest of the hotel is. I didn't try... More

Beautiful hotel with ultra modern and spacious rooms. Good location close to the historic center of the city. Food just okay though you can find alternative dining options in the center..keeping in mind Spanish dining hours are much later than most places. The shopping district is dead in the early afternoon with limited dining options. Was still able to find... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the birthplace of Cervantes, where every nook and cranny oozes art and culture, stands the Parador de Alcala, a 17th-century monastery school and student lodgings located in the former San Jeronimo College. However, do not let so much history overwhelm you, because the hotel offers the perfect combination of tradition and avant-garde. The interior decor is of a modern design: tasteful, minimalist and extremely elegant. The services are without par: in addition to the standard offerings at Paradores, there is a spa, business center, convention centers and twelve conference rooms. 26 Kilometers from Madrid, 20 kilometers from Barajas International Airport and the trade fair facilities at IFEMA, and just 2 kilometers from the train station, the Parador's location in this World Heritage City is one of its main advantages. ... more   less
