Hospederia Castillo de Alcaudete
Ranked #1 of 4 Alcaudete B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 20, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for six nights in mid september. For a 2 * rural hotel the standard of service and quality of the food would match many so called top end hotels. The hotel is run by Alberto and Pablo, two wonderfully warm human beings, Alberto is more front of house and Pablo is quite at home in the kitchen. Because we were a little tired from travelling we only intended eating there on the first night but the food was absolutely superb, so we decided to try a different dish the next night and then the next. We ate there every night and never tried the same meal twice, a little boring maybe but all of the meals were superb, everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. The room was large with an enormous bed which was very comfortable, the whole hotel is very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. There is a roof terrace where you can sit and have a drink at night with views of the illuminated Cathedral. The hotel is a little difficult to find but if you keep going up to the highest point in town, a stone's throw from the Cathedral, with good parking just in front. The quality of this hotel is a compliment to both Alberto and Pablo who are two of the most genuine and unselfish people that I have met for a long time, I wish them every success.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front give great views of the Cathedral, you can just open the shutters and drink i...

Hospederia Castello de Alcaudete offers high quality comfortable accommodation and fine dining that belies its star rating. This gem is more a boutique hotel. Located in in the middle of Andalucia in Spain's olive growing capital in Jaen provinc,e it provides superb food beautifully presented. Ingredients are fresh and anything on the menu can be ordered with total confidence. All dishes tried were very good but the cod stood out - cooked to perfection. All the food was a feast to the both mouth and eyes. Desserts looked like polished jewel stones on a plate.

The owners are kind and considerate and take a holistic approach to their guests well being and this is reflected in the ambiance/atmosphere which is like home from home. Comfortable sofas and lots of books. Bed exceptionally comfortable. There is a resident cat and dog adding further the homely atmosphere of the hotel.

Non-drivers need not feel they have to miss out! Alcaudete is easily reached by bus and is on the main Cordoba - Granada - Almeria bus route. Alcaudete is also reached by a single bus (no change) from Malaga City, which travels to Jaen City, Baeza and Ubeda. For clycling enthusiasts, it is quite close the Via Verde del Aceite. Do not miss this gem in Alcaudete, Andalucia!

This really is a hidden gem.

The hotel is spotless and very imaginatively decorated. The beds are very comfortable. But what makes it an outstanding place to stay are the people who run the hotel. They are so kind and solicitous.They were particularly tolerant of and friendly to our two, slightly boisterous, dogs.

Excellent value for money too. I'm not quite sure why it is classed as a hostal, rather than a hotel. It's much nicer than many hotels I've stayed in!

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Our room, 13, was very large and had a huge shower and a view of the castle.
