Beautiful hotel converted from Convent. Staff were excellent and helpful especially with car park. The hotel was very noisy. You could hear through the walls easily and surprisingly as it is a converted convent and one would expect stone walls. However we paid 149 euro and when we arrived there were rates at half that price. Perhaps check the hotels own website a week before you arrive and outside the cancellation window.
Position in historic centre.size and furnishing of room n/a
It was central to the old part of the city and had fast access out to the local countryside.
Brilliantly maintained, fantastic view from our hotel, smart decor and overall a very comfortable stay. Would definitely stay there again. Bottom floor restaurant is recommended as well.
central, beautiful view overlooking gorge andd clean
The two rooms we had were very clean and had a bit of character but were unexceptional. Location is good. The hotel restaurant is a joke -- aesthetically attractive but the food simply canned food placed on nice dinnerware -- and was very expensive. A tourist dive we ate in actually had better food at a fifth the price. The restaurant was an umitigated ripoff -- overpriced and terrible food. We ate there at the recommendation of the hotel staff, who warned strongly against eating elsewhere in the area. The hotel is fine, but the restaurant is awful (and the hotel loses some credibility for warning against eating elsewhere).
Central situation,unspoilt medeival setting sympathetically updated, as a modern hotel. Lack of international choice on TV, which seems petty BUT it is nice to keep up to date with the news.
Very professional, wonderful location and brilliantly decorated within a really old world setting. Nothing
large rooms, large and comfortable beds. very stylish hotel.
We had room price on a 50% discount (last minute). Furthermore drinks are cheap:less than Euro 1,50 for a glass of wine! No information on Cuenca or suroundings
The location is fantastic and the dinner we had was delicious with efficient and friendly service. The check-in and out employee (same person) seemed to be a bit overwhelmed and not overly friendly even though it was not very busy at either time.
Location for Cuenca - perfect position and easy walk into town. Evening meal very good but expensive as was breakfast
The hotel uses Parador de Cuenca in the WEB-booking but in Cunca it uses Parador Tourismo on road signs which makes it difficult to find. They should use the same name on the WEB-page as on their direction signs in Cuenca.
The location was fantastic, right across from the medieval town via a bridge, and the best views of the hanging houses were from the Parador. Looked like a palace, and everything was well-built and to last.
Great location in a beautiful and unique city. Rooms are comfortable and attractive. Parking should be provided at no additional cost in this rural location.
problem with parking - only street parking unless you paid for a garage (would not have been enough space in high season) Food was not of a good standard and very expensive
location is top! great views of the medieval city we were disappointed taht the swimmingpool was closed and that there was no place to sit outside to relax, only the bar.
Beautiful location, unique building - previously a Catholic seminary for training priests, friendly service and beautifully decorated in a classical style. The hotel policy allows non residents to use the public areas of the hotel without restriction. This includes the cloister, as a result on occasions this beautiful quiet area can be taken over by large groups, leaving no room for residents.the management should review their policy to protect the interests of their guests.
A historic atmosphere
superb position excellent room and service no
Central location Hotel was unable to process achip and pin credit card they did not have the correct machine and kept telling me it was my Bank. I think this should be made clear to other guests before they try to pay.
I liked its position in the old town of Cuenca and its views over the gorge. There needed to be more information about the difficulty of driving in Cuenca old town.
The view and breakfast
The Hotel was beautiful and had incredible views of the monestary. Room was very romantic. I loved the location in relationship to Paza Mayor, many places to eat and shop for special things such as pottery.
Its quiet situation at almost the highest point of the old town. The castle walls, and the car park (with a few nearby cafés and restaurants) giving a spectacular view of Cuenca, are a short walk uphill. A long, very steep downhill walk leads to all the points of interest in Cuenca. The return walk uphill would be testing for some people, but there are some buses and also a tourist train which pass the hotel. The hotel is close to several bars and restaurants; particularly recommended for its food and the fantastic view of the gorge from its dining room is the Comedor Posada de San José, a few minutes' walk from the hotel - reservation advised. There is fee wi-fi in the hotel lounge. The untidy reception desk gives a bad initial impression of the hotel. My single room was cramped, careworn and not particularly clean. There was only one straight-backed chair. With a 7.30 am departure from Cuenca bus station the next day, I was unable to take breakfast, which was only available from 8.00 am.
the room and view were greta but bathroom needs updating
location in the midle of the old town. Views from the room. The whole hotel is very noisy, and the outside noise continues untill early mornings. Parking is far away.
We liked this hotel, we'd stay again. The staff were helpful and friendly, our room was spacious and airy with a heart stopping view over Cuenca. We didn't need the aircon on, even in the August heat. The hotel's just minutes from good cafes and restaurants in the old town square.
The views from the room, if you are lucky enough as to get a room overlooking the "hoz del Huecar", i.e. the valley towards the south east, are fantastic, so if you book here, ask for one of these rooms. The rooms have walls which are hardly sound-proof; the running water system seems to be old and faulty, and very noisy. Some of the staff seems to be hardly experienced.
Perfect location and a beautiful room at a good price. Our room was above the kitchen and the noise was very disturbing - particularly during clearing up at 1am with the kitchen door open! This was unfortunate as every other aspect of our stay was perfect.
The room had spectacular view over the gorge. It was very comfortable and pleasant. The terrace is a real bonus. The young woman that cleaned our room was pleasant and helpful. Price via this website very much better than those advertised on their wall. Not impressed at the booking in and out procedures, given the price paid. There was nobody there when we arrived at 5 to 7 but we eventually were able to enrol assistance from a hotel up the street, to call the number on the door. It took about 25 minutes for a young woman and child to appear (having said 15!). No eye contact, demand for passport, rather than request, no concern to achieve warm customer interface. We And when we wanted to depart, both we and a Spanish couple had to telephone to get her to come and take our money, even though we were well within the time that the reception is advertised as accessible. Would recommend only with these serious criticisms in mind. The shower head holder was broken (as are most in Spain, it seems
very nice room, very quiet ..
It was a unique and amazing stay! We called number on door when we arrived, we assume it was the owner who let us in, we were the only guests so we were offered a better room! It was a once in a lifetime chance, felt like our own private villa built into a mountain side! We were given the key to the front door to lock up when we left to browse Cuenca. I would stay there again and would tell others to stay there as well!
The location is perfect, in the middle of the historical town. There is a terrace on which to have breakfast, with view on the beautiful landscape and river. The room was unfortunately on the streetside, so we didn't have the landscape view, but apart from that is was great: a very comfortable bed, large room, large bathroom with a jacuzzi in the bathtub. The WIFI worked, though quite slow, but still good enough for browsing. The shower head wasn't fully functional as it was spraying all directions.
Nothing The reception facilities, the room, the bathroom, the lounge, the dining facilities, the area.
