Almagro paradore is a truly special hotel and probably one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in on our travels. We have stayed in great places but this place is very special.
We always hoped that if we travelled in Spain we could experience the Paradores but thought they would be too expensive. We are staying in several paradores at excellent prices thanks to the team at the Paradores for their assistance . We actually liked the cheaper ones because they are smaller and more friendly.
We arrived at Almagro having little idea what to expect, and within a short time we changed our plans so we could spend another night here as it was so beautiful and special. It is a convent from 16th century that has been renovated to reflect the special qualities of this heritage building whilst providing the comfort of a 4* hotel.
Brian and I have decided one of the important components of the hotel experience is the friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff. It can make or break your experience. How well they assist and problem solve is really important. The staff at Almagro were fantastic and we thank them for this. They assisted us in changing bookings at other Paradores and made recommendations which really assisted us in our travels around Spain.
The accommodation in this quiet large comfortable standard room was wonderful. The corridors and landings are magnificently decorated using antiques in keeping with its history. The Paradore has a number of internal courtyards. All the rooms, dining room, breakfast and other salons look out these beautiful quiet garden spaces reflecting their Spanish character. This is not a chain hotel but a Spanish heritage building, and this is a place unique in the world.
Paradore de Almagro was easy to find and there was parking in the large entrance area. The breakfast was great. i'm glutenfree and there was a large range of bread and pastries, a real treat for me.
What is Almagro...it a living Spanish town which is not full of tourists with really friendly people. Such a relief after tourist filled Toledo. It has ordinary shops, cafes and bars. Also Don Quixote windmills are a short drive at another friendly town called Conseugra, great tourist office. We went to the National Park at Daimel which was a great wetlands to walk and see birds.
Luckily we were able to change our plans so we are returning again on our way from Granada to Madrid. We will dine in the magnificent dining room, read in the salon, gaze at the Courtyards and sleep peacefully.
We had a great deal which we booked through Booking.com, same as that the Paradores offered us. Email the Paradores with your questions as they were so helpful. We book a standard room which have been absolutely lovely.
A highlight of this 8 week European trip. I hope you love it as much as we did!
