The modern metal cloaking of this parador is in itself interesting and quite attractive, but it does mean that the older features are not obvious. The courtyard bar is very pleasant and all the staff we met were great. Apart from a small part of the university, Alcala de Henares offers little for the visitor - it is just a pleasant stop-over and the town itself is not very attractive.
- 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
