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.
new & modern hotel (Sept 2008) - coming from town it looks awful although it isn't at all ;) 4th floor bar was closed during daytime,
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.
Monuments and the country side
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.
Good Value for the money,short walk from the historic center
I chose this hotel as you are able to park your car in an enclosed individual garage adjacent to your room. There is a connecting door to your room. My car had all my possessions in it as I had driven from Santander heading towards the south coast. Such security is priceless. Reception staff were welcoming and helpful. I had a nice breakfast in the morning. I would have liked the opportunity to buy local products. These did not seem to be on sale.
Bed was comfortable, and the bedroom and bar/restuarant facilities were good. Staff were very helpful on the whole. The bathroom was disgusting for a four star hotel. A 'rustic' tiled bathroom is not acceptable for this star rating. Also, a fiesta was being held the night we stayed, with very, very loud rave music ALL night, right next to the hotel, so that none of us got any sleep. We should have been warned about this on booking the hotel or offered full compensation.
that the was a garage to each room the head waiter was not very helpfull or friendly. He said he could not speak english when we need the menu translated.
El servicio muy agradable y la comida muy buena.
Romantic ex hunting lodge. Public areas charming. Great staff and really "sympathico" environment. Each bedroom comes with private garage - perfect if your car is piled with stuff. Resturant food excellent. Price excellent. Very happy experience. Staff on duty did not speak any english - however did their best to understand what you wanted and largely sign language worked.
Easy assess from autovia. Garage next to room. Good size rooms. Good staff On our first stay there was far too much salt in the food
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...
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
Hotel well-situated. Reception very welcoming. Room and bathroom VERY nice. Good breakfast. Price - very good. Hotel restaurant was also excellent.
Nice clean hotel - central Noise from streets outside - Friday
Character of building;location and breakfast None
Convenient situation in cntre of town Difficult to find - need instructions and map.Difficult to get into garage ecause of narrow street
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!
Excellent value for a money, comfortable, big A little cold and the heating a little complicated and noisy
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
the elegance of the site
The food and setting were excellent
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.
Charming hotel +++
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 location, the design, the restaurant, the swimming pool,
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 ?
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!
From entering the Hotel to leaving the staff were very friendly, helpful, could'nt do enough for you. It was very nicely decorated,they have a glass lift that shows the town, the room was delightful, the restaurant excellent. Lovely open space conservatory to sit and have a drink. Most of all were the excellent tapas that you were given free with a drink and the prices were very reasonable seeing as you were in City Hotel. Would definately go again to the Hotel Santiago. Nothing. It was lovely we picked the best Hotel in Linares.
Such a pleasant experience after a very long plane and car ride-Frederico our waiter in the restaurant was such a trooper trying to bridge the language barrier when ordering dinner. The hotel is deceiving from the outside-so beautiful in side with all it's hidden terraces and the rooms were very well appointed.
City center, decor Limited storage space, difficulty parking, breakfast closed earlier than stated time, no coffee/tea maker in the room, tight room.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not a Parador but almost in same league. Superb feel to the hotel with old world charm in abundance.
The XVI century ambiance created in the hotel Should be better signposted. Very difficult to find.
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.
I like the beds. They were quite comfortable. Nice presentation, clean, organized. Welcoming fruit basket was a nice touch, too bad we were too tired to eat any of it! Good breakfast selection, nice and helpful staff.
Spacious accommodation; nice bar atmosphere (mind you it was Real Madrid vs Milan on the telly) and excellent food. Nice touch to have a basket of fruit waiting you on arrival.
My wife and I stayed only one night in this hotel. Its fine central location meant we were in the heart of Linares. Breakfast was well laid out and plentiful with fresh food to suit all tastes. There were many good bars within easy walking distance - just remember that when you are asked what 'tapa' or 'tapita' you want to have with your drink in the bars you choose from the menu and you don't pay anything extra for it. We had no issues and no problems with the hotel, the facilities, the location or the staff. We would be happy to use the same hotel again.
Excellent breakfast, great peaceful location in a city, clean rooms.
Good value for money + very courteous staff. Good buffet breakfast and secure parking. Good size room, bed and bathroom.
Lift down to garage ,close to all shopping and only 10 minutes to only golf course in Jaen.
The breakfast was fantastic! Just the pillow was not confortable enough
The hotel owner and his wife were helpful and very welcoming. The hotel itself is immaculately clean, newly renovated and decorated and has a real wow factor for such a small, inexpensive place - the lighting in the communal areas in particular is subtle and helps to create a warm atmosphere. The hotel has a contemporary design in an old building whilst still maintaining traditional values and charm.. It is well placed for the main (A4?) motorway and represented excellent value for money in an interesting part of Spain. We only stayed for one night but would have liked to have had more time to explore the surrounding area. We will definitely go back and have already recommened it to others. Nothing.
The hotel is a renovation project that took 3 years to complete to an extremely high standard. Therefore, as you would expect from such a project, the hotel is charming and spotless. It is positioned in the center of a charming village with a tapas/restuarant bar, chemist, 2 banks, supermarket and bakery within 100m. There is plenty of parking just outside the hotel on the main street. The hotel owners (Luis Miguel and Juana María) are particularly welcoming and will do anything to please their guests. Most people use the hotel as a stopover as it is just off the main Madrid-Seville motorway, however it is also a great place to stay to enjoy the local white villages and spectacular scenary in the national parks. Highly recommended. It is not possible to fault the hotel and the levels of service.
We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at the Hotel Palacio del Intendente and it was in an excellent position for a stop over on our way back to Ciudad Real Airport being only 5 mins off the main A4 motorway. The reception staff made us feel very welcome and did everythning they could to make our stay enjoyable. The Hotel is a beautiful building which is very well cared for and we appreciaed the lovely surroundings.
Breakfast was fresh and good. The pool was just right and the owners/staff were very friendly. An excellent hotel for travellers and also for those wanting to explore the historic area of Jaen.
A real taste of Spain located just off the main route through Spain , Ideal for a stop over. Very comfortable and clean.
The receptionist ,the palace,the location next to the church and the castle,10 min.by car to UBEDA,the tranquility of the village !
Nice rural hotel The beds were very small and room has not window. They did not accept credit card
The Palacio is tucked between a church and a castillo is the precious little town of Sabiote, about 8 km. from Ubeda. The proprietor is warm and welcoming; he makes visitors feel like members of his family, all of whom help make visits delightful. Their restaurant is superb, and they certainly know their wines. We look forward to the time when the Palacio incorporates a WiFi system into its Internet connection.
La cena en el restaurante con platos típicos de la región ( lomo de lorza con huevo frito, paté de perdiz con mermelada de tomate) era muy buena. Curioso el helado de aceite de oliva, merece la pena probarlo. El desayuno era muy, muy pobre. Para desayunar magdalenas y mini- croissants de Mercadona no voy a un hotel. El café es de máquina como en la oficina (con leche en polvo) y ni siquiera ofrecen zumo. La habitación era muy oscura; situada en un semisótano la única ventana (pequeña) está a la altura del suelo de la calle a la que da. El plato de ducha (para minusválidos) estaba rajado. El ruido de la calle y del bar-restaurante se oye como si estuviesen en tu habitación. No parece haber conexión a internet de ningún tipo. La televisión (de 14") solo tenia 3 canales que se viesen, y con nieve. En la habitación no había cobertura de móvil.
I enjoyed being in a small town and being part of a fiesta being held at the time and seeing the whole town turn out on tractors! The hotel was pretty and had been well restored with many attractive features. I did not feel very welcome and although I had asked for private parking I was directed to park outside the hotel in the street. The proprietor did not speak English and my Spanish is not so good so there may have been a misunderstanding. I felt the write up in the booking was over egging the pudding as there seemed to be more facilities than I was aware of.
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).
The personnel amabilityand the very clean and spacious room Everything was excellent
