Spectacular location. As you approach Cardona, a castle emerges on a hilltop and this is the hotel. A true 1000 year old castle that has been renovated for modern comforts. Dinner was also very good but service a little slow. Main drawback is the number of non guests who traipse through as its a main tourist attraction also. Noise from... More

We make two trips each year in Spain and mostly stay in Paradores. This one is a gem. It is a truly interesting building and the only one where you are given a sheet to help you navigate the hotel and not get lost. We had the Cardona Suite which was very well appointed. But more than all of that... More

Regretfully, I am very disappointed with the inflexibility of management at this Parador. After visiting this castle on our travels twice before since this is our "family name", we decided to book a reservation to stay one night with other family members. Coming off a cruise, we rented a car and drove from Barcelona to Cardona. Upon arriving, we were... More

Another remarkable Parador. A large castle on the top of a hill. Wide views including the local open cast salt mine on one side! We had a large suite with four poster bed and very comfortable furniture. Excellent restaurant

Very comfortable and unique property. Dates to the 10th c - plumbing added later. This is an intimate hotel with just enough rooms for critical mass and not too many for a crowd. The bar (Alice is wonderful) has stunning views over the valley and the drinks are full-pours with plenty of ice. The dining room is ambitious, but they... More

Magical location and as always excellent service and food. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The Paradores staff are always courteous and helpful. Such a interesting site with its own 11th century church and steeped in Spanish history.

Over the years, I have stayed in a number of parador some of which have been amazing and some others, like this one, have just been average. The building itself is gorgeous and so is the view of the surrounding area. There is clearly a lot of history here and it was very nice to walk around the property. Also... More

This is a good hotel, in a fabulous location. Our standard room was good, with a large bathroom, and a view over the salt mining area (which was fine). The salt mine is definitely worth a visit! We used the bar area to eat each evening, and enjoyed the beefburger and salad. The staff there were particularly lovely and made... More

An excellent hotel for 1 night but I wouldn't recommend the area for a longer family holiday. The castle experience was however interesting and historical but because of its location one had to forego beautiful grounds and a pool ( which we anticipated).

This parador needs a bit of TLC for sure. Carpets are in a bit of a state as are some of the furnishings. Staff are overworked and grumpy with the exception of the one girl who works in the bar serving drinks and cooking food all with a smile on her face. Then next day she is on breakfast duty... More
