Good Value for the money,short walk from the historic center
new & modern hotel (Sept 2008) - coming from town it looks awful although it isn't at all ;) 4th floor bar was closed during daytime,
We visited the town of Baeza during the summer fete period. We spent time by the pool. We used the hotel as a stop-over between Madrid and Malaga The area around the hotel is a little scruffy, it is on the outskirts of the town.
We liked everything about the Hotel. The rooms are excellent, spacious and clean. The breakfest is very good and well served. To say anything, the pool is small.
Monuments and the country side
nice modern hotel, very clean, has pleasant lobby and coffee shop, has excellent view of valley, mountains and olive tree farms. Most important nice and very friendly staff, specially at the front disk. I think the cost was abit high for this area. But maybe it is atourist city.
The restaurant had a great menu.
We were very impressed with the building and its location to the historical areas of the town. The rooms were large and comfortable but still retained the old world feel.
The inner courtyard is wonderful, and dinner was excellent. It felt rather strange not really having a window, despite the novelty of our door opening onto the beautiful courtyard.
Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. Mixed starter for 2 was huge and well worth the €20. could have done with a longer break before the main course arrived.Location perfect for sightseeing.
The Parador is an old manor home which has been renovated beautifully, but still retains the old charm. It is well located in the old section of Ubeda and has an excellent dining room. The rooms are large with roomy baths.
Location in the center of Ubeda old town. Very good restaurant. 1. In the morning the water the water was not hot enough for the shower, it was only slightly warm. 2. Unable to connect to the Wi-Fi Internet: it was password free but required some special set up and the stuff was unable to provide any additional information. Set up is not related to my computer - the day before I was able to connect to Wi-Fi Internet in Parador de Mojacar without any problem
The hotel was in a great location and the center courtyard was lovely. The service was non existent. We had to haul our luggage across a cobbled courtyard then up some steep steps to enter the hotel. We asked for assistance and were told that they did not have the staff. Their were few people to serve drinks in the patio. If was easier to go downstairs to the bar and bring it back up yourself. The most egregious problem was with the room. The room did not have a window. Only a door to a inner courtyard that everyone going to their rooms could look into our room from. So we wanted to turn on our air conditioner. It did not do anything but make a sound... no air blew out of it. When we mentioned it when we checked out... the staff said they knew about this. We did not sleep in the hot room.
Central position and historic atmosphere. Excellent restaurant Parking facilities
We loved the courtyard of the palace most of all. Extremely beautiful. Also, the bed was extremely comfortable and pleasant. THe bathroom was exceptional and all the amenties were availabel in the bathroom. The parking was very difficult and we had to park th car a very far distance from the hotel. There is no on-site parking.
The building has been beautifully adapted to operate as a first rate hotel. The setting in the middle of Ubeda, the quality of attention to detail and the staff care were all excellent. The cost of room service and food was not at a reasonable level.
the location, the design, the restaurant, the swimming pool,
Charming hotel +++
the elegance of the site
nice location. cold room with poor to no heat control that responded. Safe was locked upon arrival and never opened up. Breakfast buffet was meager at best. No internet in room at all.
The food and setting were excellent
Beautiful space in an interesting town. Breakfast was plentiful. The restaurant was closed on Sunday night - wish we had known! Hard to find the hotel...signs are misleading.
Hotel staff very friendly very nice room good wine list and great area Parking a little tricky but a small price to pay ?
Everything - the setting of the hotel was beautiful. It felt very luxurious but not at all fussy - very relaxed. Bar by the pool was very reasonable and the setting beautiful. The beds were extremely comfortable. Very relaxed about our three children for a posh hotel.
The building is tastefully restored and.the courtyard pool is lovely The rooms very comfortable. Restaurant excellent. Hotel in central location... The hotel is not the easiest place to find (, but it is well signposted in the town.)
The rooms and facilities generally were exceptional. Great relaxing atmosphere. Nothing!
Grea,Tito and his wife could not have been more accomodating. We found it to be a great little country inn.
The flexibility, friendliness and warmth of the owners, the fact that we could have breakfast until 14:00 PM, the breakfast itself, the room, everything really, it was just perfect. A wonderful little retreat.
The owners are very sweet, breakfast was delicious and the hotel itself is adorable with an open fire and a very cosy room.
Fantastic - Tito and Macarena were the most wonderful hosts. The food was excellent, and the location perfect for visiting the Jaen area. If you like to experience rural Spain then it doesn't get much better than this.
A great place to stay. Very good host, lovely quiet location, but within 10 minutes drive of Ubeda which is a fine old historic town. Had an evening meal at Tito's which was very good, breakfast was also good. Rooms are arranged around a small courtyard and would suit family if they wanted to let kids have their own room, but still have them very close. The pool was also very inviting. Nothing was too much trouble for Tito, but the staff were never intrusive.
Small bed, breakfast was o.k. but not generous/quite basic, the same applies for the evening meals.
Warmth of the welcome from Margarina and the service provided by Tito. This was like staying in a friendly family home. The breakfast was a bit different - very tasty and the evening meals a delight. We very much enjoyed our stay and were quite sad to leave. The approach road is dreadful.
My partner and I stayed end of March 2010 and were both highly pleased with the choice, the owners were both extremely curteous and prepared a sumptuous dinner at a moments notice. Recommended.
Cosy atmosphere, friendly owner and staff.
A good break from downtown hotels. Very quiet, great food, attentive service. Just ignore the road in, it's worth it.
Nice clean hotel - central Noise from streets outside - Friday
The fact that one can leave the car in the hotel garage, because everything worthwhile visiting is within walking distance. Decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant on 12/10, and were told that we could not eat a la carte: only a set menu was available - which was not bad, but certainly not excellent...
Character of building;location and breakfast None
The location was good and the reception staff pleasant. The internal coutyard was pretty but was being used as a smoking area by other guests We stayed in a superior room. which although largewas in fact very basic. The cafeteria was not staffed and relied on the restaurant staff to service it, resulting in poor service from grumpy staff. The breakfast was only adequate
Perfectly located, comfortable room. Early in the morning (5am) there was very loud shouting in the street, waking us up. Waiters did not speak english!
Hotel well-situated. Reception very welcoming. Room and bathroom VERY nice. Good breakfast. Price - very good. Hotel restaurant was also excellent.
excellent location but then Baeza is a very small town; spacious rooms; very good bedding; excellent value for money no parking in front of the hotel except to unload in the street
Excellent value for a money, comfortable, big A little cold and the heating a little complicated and noisy
Convenient situation in cntre of town Difficult to find - need instructions and map.Difficult to get into garage ecause of narrow street
Beautiful building. Lack of food on the day we arrived Monday, we were not told it was a closing day in the hotel and in the town. I am diabetic and have to eat regularly. We were unable to find anything open.Breakfast offered is a bit basic but that may be the Spanish way.
The food was poor.
Central location Difficult to locate in very narrow back street, the breakfast was poor
I liked the secure parking ( auto elevator to basement), the large size of the rooms, and the central location as well as a pool. The hotel is hard to navigate to through the narrow one way streets.
Hotel was very nice and good value. Restaurant was very poor. Used restaurant for 50th birthday and two people ordered fillet steak, it was the worse steak that I have had in a long time. Puddings also dissapointing, of the 4 fresh puddings on offer 2 were not avaiable. I chose the Temporana fruit which I assumed to be fruit of the season, the witer lead me to believe this would be Melon, Orange, Strawberry etc, but when he came out of the kitchen all he had on a plate was a solitary apple on a plate. I sent it back and had a frozen ice cream. At least we saw the funny side of that but would not recommend the restaurant.
Good location. Nice staff explained points of interest in town. Hotel a bit difficult to find by car due to many one-way streets.
it has its own underground car park, always useful in Ubeda. No greeting, no welcome pack, no loo rolls in the reception toilets, no spa although it is advertised as having one and they had us booked in the wrong day. It was a special trip for our daughter's engagement and very disappointing.
Nice small swimming pool. Spaceous rooms. In the center of the historical city. No one of the staff speaks english, only spanish.
The convenience of this hotel being in the centre of this picturesque city overshadowed the difficulty we experienced in finding it. A well maintained, comfortable hotel with larger than average rooms.
The location was excellent
I had a double room for single occupancy and it was very spaceous and comfortable. Well situated near the historic centre of Ubeda. The staff were helpful Breakfast not included. No phone in the room. No English Language news channels available on tv.
Wonderful hotel, elegant, clean, with all comforts. Incredible save of money booking with Booking.com! (I wouldn't have gone there if I had to pay the full price)
It was excellent value for money. It is a long way out of the old town, but parking is easy. You will need to take a taxi, as its too far to walk, but it was cheap enough. Good breakfast. Public areas a bit smoky !
A very comfortable room with a beautiful view. The bartender/waiter was extremely helpful and our breakfast was a real pleasure. Free Wifi internet was very convenient. We asked for a no smoking room but the room had ashtrays so we suspect it was not always no smoking. The pool was closed despite it being late June and tempretures being in the high 30's /low 40's.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Free parking was available on the street.Buffet breakfast was excellent. A la carte evening menu was excellent Maid service was spasmodic-mini-bar and coffee not replenished.
The rooms were very nice and comfortable. Easy to find. Parking underneath the hotel. The hotel restaurant. The evening meal was very poor. We had to return a starter. The main course was very bland and the vegetables were cold and frozen inside. We mentioned it to the waitress and she just shrugged her shoulders. Breakfast was a bit better but, not in our opinion the quality of a four star hotel and not worth 9 euros.
Nice and clean room with a basket of fruit was waiting for us.The pool is about 20 mt long !! very clean and not crowded ( in August). A small breakfast at the bar is offered as alternative to large buffet...great whenever you do not need plenty of food in the morning. Park convenience. Nothing to report.Everything was perfect!!
excellent breakfast/ good swimmingpool/ nice rooms whole night heavy noise because of wedding party in the garden/ elevator dit not work / limited openinghours of the swimmingpool/ late breakfastservice
The room was very spacious and the public areas very nice. Lots of locals use the hotel. Had tapas in the bar that were excellent. About 15 minute walk to historical area. Breakfast was good but a little pricey.
Good location, and great food, nice pool.ask for a room overlooking the pool.
The restaurant was very good and at reasonable prices. The swiming pool was also very good even towels were supplied.... In general our stay was very confortable and very enjoyable. Only a bit too far from the center (not much, 15 minutes walking)
This is a lovely small hotel in a perfect location to explore the old quarter of Ubeda. It is fairly new and is clearly well taken care of. My room was large and very attractively furnished, with a very modern bathroom and excellent shower. The bed was really comfortable. The room, as well as the rest of the hotel, was spotlessly clean. The attendants were helpful with taxis and directions.
Very chic - a welcome surprise Friendly, helpful staff
great accomodation. Lovely hotel. Very comfortable. Easy parking.
This was a very pleasant hotel with very friendly staff.
Splendid themed rooms, friendly staff and central location
Hotel comfortable and stylish; very well located to visit the historic town of Ubedes and others nearby. Variety of shops nearby ; also bars and resturants (but latter very quite out of season)
This hotel was fabulous. It is filled w/charm and comfort. The location is great. Everything was very clean. The beds/linens were the most comfortable during our entire trip in Spain. The lobby was very nice, with an adjoining library. The room was well sized and very nicely furnished. The bathroom was clean, modern and well sized, with a full sized tub/shower. The complimentary toiletries were extremely nice. Each room has a different theme. The high quality hand-picked furnishings and decor throughout the entire hotel makes it a very special place to stay.
I'd like the style of the hotel. The position was excellent. Parking was not very easy close to the hotel but you could find some space in a distance of 100 to 200 hundred meters. People of the hotel were very friendly and try to help us in everything. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Free WiFi Internet, People of the hotel should speak more English
City center, decor Limited storage space, difficulty parking, breakfast closed earlier than stated time, no coffee/tea maker in the room, tight room.
The XVI century ambiance created in the hotel Should be better signposted. Very difficult to find.
Not a Parador but almost in same league. Superb feel to the hotel with old world charm in abundance.
Beautiful building The service was poor, though the people at the reception very nice. Breakfast not available before 8.30!!
ambience we had booked a suite to find that it had no windows. The air con was not cold enough and we had to change to a standard room to get some ventilation. Apparant some standard rooms did not have external windows.
It was very central , the breakfast was good but not exceptional. The building was very attractive. There was no pool, no bar and no restaurant.
Hotel was beautiful, breakfast, very Spanish but very good, good parking facilities in the next road. There could have been a noise problem if the hotel had been full, as there was a bar/breakfast room on the patio, the bedrooms were all round the patio, if you were on the lower floor you'd have walk out of your bedroom door directly into the breakfast room, although there is a restaurant connected to the hotel outside, as it was quite when we were there people were eating on the patio.. our room was on the 3rd floor and did have a window onto the side street.
Beautiful small place. Building is an old palace: very lovely w/ interior courtyard. Like a mini-Parador w/o the price. A nice stop, ok breakfast; we had dinner and flamenco, a special treat.
The location is very nice. The Hotel itself is located in an amazing timepiece of artchitecture. Very nicely,warmly and comfortable decorated rooms. As the hotel once was a medieval type of city palace some of the rooms have windows only towards the interior patio (hall). if you need "daylight" then you definitely have to be aware of that.
Unusual hotel. Excellent location. Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast. Be aware that some rooms face internal courtyard and therefore do not have outside windows. Also, there is no restaurant actually in the hotel, you have to take a walk outside for dinner.
Very central for the tourist attractions, staff friendly and room very spacious and clean. The outdoor pool was a real bonus !
The hotel had style yet was in a very cultural town
The Zenit is an outstanding modern hotel in the middle of the old city center of Ubeda. We stayed in a suite that had a nice view of the pool and the city skyline. The building is very impressive and the rooms are well designed. There is an obvious attention to detail in the rooms. The pool area was nice and the courtyard with the old olive tree beautiful. The hotel was very accommodating of our young children. Finding the hotel was a bit of a difficult, perhaps in part due to street closures from the Renaissance festival. Parking is possible though challenging.
Without doubt the best 3 star hotel I´ve stayed in while in Spain. The interior design is simple but highly effective, all the reception were extremely helpful and the level of cleanliness just perfect. This is a fairly new hotel (opened July 2008) and it deserves more publicity. During our stay the hotel was very quiet.
The hotel is attractive and the decor is still in as-new condition. It was very quiet and relaxing (as it was the off-season in Ubeda). Once you got to know the layout of the town it was very easy to get to the main historic sites. The minimalism of the rooms borders on the uncomfortable, even for fans of this style. People with small children would I think find the hotel unattractive. The only major inconveniences are the lack of a hotel car-park or nearby on-street parking, and the warren of narrow streets to be negotiated around the hotel.
Fantastic hotel, great value for money! If ever again in Ubeda, I would certainly go back.
It was in a lovely part of town, within walking distance of all interesting sights. The staff was friendly and accommodating
Location of hotel Parking is a bit of a problem and breakfast not up to standard
Staff is extremely helpful and directs you around town really well. Great room with a great view.
The hotel was almost new, very clean and the staff very helpful. The hotel is a little difficuly to find, but this caused only a little problem No
The location and the appearance of the hotel. The location was certainly very noisy on a Friday night - I don't know about other nights.
Very convenient location in the historic centre of a very pretty town. Bedroom was fine and breakfast OK.
Lovely building with comfortable clean bedrooms, quiet and peaceful yet very well-located. Generous breakfast.
Friendly staff. Perfect location. Water temperature was very unstable
Helpful and courteous staff and location in the old town. No
Great location, clean and comfortable Breakfast was a big disappointment. Don't need a big deal -- just good bread and strong coffee (bread was lousy).
Ubeda was a place we wanted to return to - after several years, your hotel was our choice. We enjoyed our stay, the hotel was a good choice, and the location was excellent. Will definitely recommend to friends who consider the city for a visit. nothing was a problem. the front desk staff were pleasant, and very helpful
Excellent hotel right in the centre of a fantastic city. Reception staff were very helpful and the ambience and character of the hotel were great. Really felt like staying in a old palace but with modern facilities. No complaints
Beautiful building and a great location. The town is lovely and the hotel is right in the middle of it. Booking.com directions were really useful. Air con didn't work that well.
Closeness to the old city. Good price. Nice room. Free wifi didn't work in the room, but did work in the lobby. Required difficult reconfiguration of DNS to work. Restaurant not open except for breakfast.
Excellent location and friendly personnel No Inter in the rooms end though it was advertised in their web site. Also, the international in the reception was very weak and working intermittently The water in the shower was either too hot or too cold, I could never make it work properly
The hotel is a charming palacio with wonderful though warn antiques in the common rooms. The staff is genteel and friendly. The location perfect for experiencing Ubeda. There is nothing to not like, but an elevator and more on-site parking may be expectations that will be disappointed. We seventy-somethings with minor disabilities did fine.
A central, attratctive and comfortable hotel, an ideal base for exploring Ubeda. Its best feature though is the delightful manager who takes the time to make sure you have everything you need, to recommend local restaurants and bars and to highlight the best sites. Excellent!
Small hotel in interesting old building a short walk from from the centre of town. Host was charming and personal touch made for a very pleasant overnight stay. Hotel is down a narrow 1 way street in a maze of roads. We initially parked nearby and walked to hotel using a satnav. Subsequently moved car to on steet parking about 50m from hotel.
beautiful room, comfortable
It is a very small hotel, and breakfast was especially prepared with a good choice and local dishes to sample. Very centrally located. The room was a bit small.
We liked the ambiance, decor and also the luxurious bathroom. It was also a great location for seeing the old city. Although it is a converted medieval building and we expected and liked the dark ambiance, some people might find the windowless rooms (it had a sky-lite) claustrophobic.
The quality of this hotel is superb. The bedroom I stayed in was traditionally furnished to a high standard but the bathroom was modern & immaculate throughout. The proprietor is keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. Make sure you also book breakfast; you will not be disappointed. Parking near to the hotel is difficult; there are limited spaces in the surrounding area but parking is available further afield and do not let this deter you from booking.
Everything, best hotel we have stayed in. No.
Hotel staff couldn't have been more welcoming and were very keen to inform us about the city, the best places to visit and show us the best routes, they advised us of really good restaurants.
personal attention. trying to please in spite language barrier.
very nice historic building and room very difficult ot park the car. There is no breakfast available till 9.30. Maybe a little late for business man.
The personnel amabilityand the very clean and spacious room Everything was excellent
Staff at reception spoke English and were very helpful. The hotel is brandnew and the rooms were comfortable and came with a terrace (but without table and chairs). Plenty of free parking available on site. The beds and shower were fine. We couldn't have our morning coffee in the room. The hotel is located out of city center, but this wasn't a problem as we came by car. Spanish family with 3 children were ruining the (new) hotel bar and staff did not bother saying something about it. No road signs indicating hotel location (yet we found it rather easily in the end).
