The historic setting and proximity to the palace and gardens, and the beauty of the building and its imaginative restoration. The dinner menu was pricey so we avoided it, but the breakfast was to die for. Every imaginable item was available. Sadly we had overslept so had little time to exploit it to the full. The hotel was also peaceful and the rooms large and well equipped, and the views great. The booking was a bit confused. Our internet booking had come up as for the following month (or so they said) although on returning home and checking emails, booking.com had correctly confirmed it to me.
We asked several staff members to direct us to the pool and then again in the spa area so that we could take a swim but were told that unless we purchased a spa treatment we could not enter the pool area. We never did get to see or swim in the pool.
Wonderful facility. Surpassed our expectations!!! Staff was quite unfriendly. Professional, just seemed like they did not care if we were there or not.
Excellent location for visiting Segovia as well as the local palace and gardens. Easy access from Madrid airport and also easy to visit El Escorial via very beautiful mountain road. Usual excellent Parador buffet breakfast. Unlike other Paradors I have stayed in this has no outside terrace ro grounds.
The location was fabulous - surrounded by mountains and beautiflul countryside but in the lovely town of San Ildefonso and only 10km from Segovia. There was nothing to fault about the room - it was clean, sound-proofed and everything worked well. The reception staff were all unfriendly and unhelpful - they seemed more concerned about their paperwork. We never ate at the hotel as there were restaurants in the town serving breakfast and dinner at a much more sensible price.
Beautiful hotel, large comfortable rooms, friendly efficient staff
Although this hotel looks stunning, the rooms miss the character and personality that we do find in other paradores. The spa is rather expensive and, more importantly, the pool was closed (in september, 30 C degrees))
had a wonderful nights sleep in comfortable beds with completely blacked out rooms, I came to visit my daughter in nearby segovia and feel that it is a great place to stay providing you have a car
The rooms are spacious, clean and have lots of light. The small town is charming and the hotel a good mix of comfort and pleasure.
