Our third Parador stay. Not what we expected. Extremely modern. This Parador is a hotel that is used by locals for weddings, etc., so had a city hotel feel. The town square is a few minute walk from the Parador. We were fortunate that a medieval festival was happening so lots of local interaction, which we enjoy. Lots of great restaurants outside the Parador to choose from. Bathroom was beautiful!

Excellent hotel!

We really liked the hotel, the bar and the outdoor patio right outside the bar area and everything about the Parador. Would go back. 45 minute train ride into Madrid with a connection to the underground. Easier than staying in downtown Mardrid. We stayed there in May, 2014. Amelia and her group on the front desk were also excellent.
