Wonderfully quiet & serene

The hotel itself is the former castle. It was well maintained & very comfortable. There was a restaurant that served breakfast, lunch & dinner. However, the dinner service was located in the breakfast room & not in the dinning room. We were there 2 nts & both nights dinner served in breakfast room. They did however serve lunch in the dinning room.??? Not sure of reasonings, unless the hotel was not at full capacity. They also had a well stocked bar. The town is small & not much to do. Some hiking trails, so bring accordingly, trails take twice as long as posted. They have a tourist info center, pharmacy, cheese shop that has a few other items, a small antique/gift shop. There are approx 5-6 more restaurants/ bar (eating) establishments. Can't tell you much about the hotel facilities, except we didn't find many. They did have each of the rooms named & a note inside that gave some history of its naming. If you are traveling here & following a gps device, once you arrive at the main entrance arches, don't listen to her. Drive all the way to the end of the town then turn right, you will then pass the tourist office. When you reach the square continue straight. You will find a car park at the end of the street that is where you park & unload. My suggestion is to check in first then bring all of your luggage.

Smoky Room

The restaurant at the hotel was great. The surrounding area is excellent; nice walking paths and amazing vistas. My only mistake was booking a room and not realizing I did not get the option for a non-smoking room. The room smelled of cigarette smoke, especially the bedding and pillows. It was so bad that I slept on the bathroom floor, because the odor had not saturated that area of the room. The hotel has complaint forms, of which I filled one out. After handing it to the front desk staff, I turned around, and left, but before exiting I heard a quick rip, and new the form was in the trash, probably unread.

A wonderful experience

Situated in an old castle, this is a small parador (only 14 rooms) with lots of character. All the rooms are individually named and we were given information on the history of both the castle and the naming of our room. Standard and comfort was of the highest level. Dinner was accompanied by a small booklet explaining each course and giving the receipe. Breakfast was cooked to order and like dinner was excellent. Views from our room and from the castle turret were stunning. Alarcon is a small town but there are a few bars and the one opposite the Parador is good value for both food and drink.
