As with most paradors this is a stunning ancient building, remodelled most sympathetically with many interesting features remaining. Its spectacular position across the gorge from the old town means that many outer rooms have a great view of the hanging houses and the long very high footbridge across the gorge to access the town, however being an ex-convent means that the windows are rather small. If you don't like heights be aware that there is a path down one side of the gorge and up the other side which doesn't take long if you're fit enough.
We parked immediately outside the Parador at no cost and had a lovely spacious room and huge bathroom both with the view - well worth the little extra payment.
The food at dinner was good if not exceptional but they did offer various combinations (2 courses, 3 courses, starter/dessert) at set prices which were good value. The ambience in the dining room was spoiled slightly however by a large section being incompletely screened off apparently for a company meeting the next day. Similarly at breakfast there was much activity taking place at that end of the room however the breakfast buffet was very good.
The staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel is definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the view of the hanging houses across the gorge.

Cuenca is probably one of the places where honeymooners or couples trying to get away from the city should stay during the weekends. A fantastic breakfast buffet spread and everything is within walking distance.

I have stayed at many Paradors all over Spain, and this one may well be my favorite ( so far). Cuenca is very picturesque and deserters one day to visit. The Parador is situated across a gorge from the town, and can be accessed via a very long foot bridge that has to been seen to be believed. Do not take too many drinks before attempting to cross the bridge, as it is a very long drop to the bottom of the gorge. Yikes...crossing can take courage. Many of the historic rooms in various Paradores can be dark and uncomfortable, but not this one. The room was a good size, the bathroom large with double sinks, plenty of light, and the view from room 302 across to the town was amazing! The common rooms and areas were very bright and comfortable also, due to the convent's cloisters with large windows, comfortable sofas, great modern art work, and good Enya music playing. While you will not find the ornate statues and carvings on the building as it is in Santiago or Leon's Paradores, this property had a nicer, airy feel with lots of room. Excellent buffet breakfast, with many wonderful dishes - more than the standard fair of some Paradors. A great stay at a nice property.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor rooms facing the town are best. Recommend room 302 for the view.

Booked hotel as a stop over on journey back to UK in the car. Weather was very cold and wet, so it was great to be able to go back to the warmth & comfort of the hotel. Stunning former convent. Underground, secure carpark available at e15 per night if required.

Had read some reviews that food was poor/ expensive, however I thought it was very good value and of a much better quality than the food we had in the town. The menu gave an option of a starter, pudding, bread and glass of wine at a reasonable price. We opted for this as we had been driving all day and didn't feel like having a huge meal. The portions were large and very tasty and I am glad we chose this option.

Good seletion of food for breakfast which was self service, apart from tea/coffee and egg dishes could be ordered from kitchen if wanted.

Staff very friendly and efficient. Would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were offered a room with views over the gorge for a little extra. Well worth it

Stayed one night at this hotel. The room is nice, bed is comfortable and the view from the window is lovely. Its walking distance to the old city of Cuenca where you can see the hanging houses. At night we spend time having a drink at the central garden atrium. It's calm and we love this place.
