Nice Hotel in an Old CastlePosted Jun 16, 2016 on Hotels
A friend and I stopped off for one night on the way to a conference in Murcia. The hotel is a restored Moorish castle and a lot of the original architecture has been preserved, but the plumbing and appliances are all modern and up-to-date. The hotel is well located for exploring Alarcón, but I'd advise against staying here on a Monday as everything in town except bars and restaurants is closed. The only issue we had with the room is that the bath/shower is open to the room, so a bit awkward if you're not a couple.

This Parador is located in an old castle keep. The reception is up seven or eight steep steps from a courtyard. No one at reception offered to help us with our bags.(We were offered help when leaving) The room was comfortable, although one light fitting was detached from the ceiling and the taps in the bathroom could not be turned with wet hands. The food was excellent. The only outside area is the courtyard,, which is small and surrounded by high walls. In other words, no garden or other outside relaxing area. This hotel does not justify the extra cost of staying here.

A great castle get away.Posted Dec 4, 2015 on Hotels
Having traveled in Spain for many nights for the last 22 years, this is the best place in Spain for a special getaway for a couple. A wonderful restaurant also. Highly recommended if you want a special night (or 2 or 3) to arrange your trip around this hotel. The only thing is that there are not many activities in the area.

Lovely buildingPosted Oct 31, 2015 on Hotels
The building is beautiful and fascinating. The staff appeared to be largely unhappy to be there. The taps in the bathroom may look attractive but are impossible to use with wet hands. The lift was occupied in the morning by a lady taking clean bedding, not a good idea with one lift and guests wanting to leave with their luggage. The food could be significantly better and perhaps some thought should be given to the largely international customers.

Spectacular setting.Posted Sep 22, 2015
Pros: The dining room is impressive and the food and service superb. Walking the ramparts is a treat. The adjacent town is small, clean and quiet.
Cons: Needs outdoor sitting areas for its guests, perhaps on the ramparts and/or in the lower gardens which are currently off limits to all but hotel staff.
Location: One can walk into the Jucar river valley. One can fish and kayak on the river. Alarcon is definitely off the beaten track!
As we come over a hill about a kilometre from Alarcon, we see the Parador. Wow! Really enjoyed our two night stay.
