Alcala de Henares is 20 minutes from Barajas airport of Madrid and for a business trip in the major area of the Spanish capital stands as a good option to spend the night without too much driving in and and out of the glorious but constipating city! Classical and low height buildings with some really old but well preserved structures around tthe center of this spacious satellite city.
Parador hotel is a masterpiece of modern "linear" Architecture which combines glass and metal in such a smooth osmosis with the historical environment!
The style of all openings (windows) is of course defensive from the point of view of energy savings and thermal comfort but without additional cost of natural light inside the building.
The rooms are large and the double bed is one of the largest ever slept on (alone).
The bath room looks much larger than it is due to the largest mirror I ever saw in hotels above the twin wash hand basins! What a perfect optical trick!
When you then try the restaurant quality, wonder why you have to leave after 2 nights and return to your office some thousands of kilometers away...
- 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
