I’ve stayed at four of the Paradors nearest to Madrid – La Granja, Alcala des Henares, Avila and Chinchon – and, without doubt, I found the latter to be the most charming. The Parador Chinchon is stylish with updated rooms and pleasant public spaces. Our modern refurbished room was well appointed with good lighting, plenty of electrical sockets and a good wifi signal plus the usual amenities of mini-bar, air-con and extra pillows to be found in the wardrobe and, of course, clean and spotless.
The hotel has a relaxing atmosphere with a charming internal courtyard, a peaceful and ornate garden and an immaculate swimming pool area. The evening meals were a delight and served outside under a tree-canopied terrace.
Chinchon is not the cheapest of Paradors and indeed both breakfast and garage parking were extras. Parking was an underground car park a short block down the road. The hotel itself is just across from the corner of the unique Plaza Mayor which, when we visited in August, had been converted into a temporary bullring with fiesta in full swing.
I found the hotel very atmospheric and the location in the small town of Chinchon was for me far more pleasurable than staying in a big concrete block type of hotel in downtown Madrid. It made a great stopover en route from Barajas International airport – about 50km away. Incidentally, if you want to splurge, I was told the “unique” room, a feature much loved by the Parador chain, is extra special.
