Amazing location

Posted Mar 30, 2018
Location: The town of Cardona has an enchanting old town square , and everywhere you go , there are more amazing views of the castle / hotel .
When driving , it is not obvious you can drive right up to the front entrance to unload luggage and then park either uphill ( limited parking ) or downhill . At check in we were initially given a room with no view , then a room with warm ( but not hot ) water , and finally a very nice room with a view on the 6th floor . The reception and main dining area are on the 4th floor , and there is a nice cafeteria on the 6th floor ( albeit with limited food choices in the afternoon ) . The hotel itself is an absolutely amazing spectacle , taking the child in all of us back to the middle ages . Breakfast was wonderful .

The Parador was very good but meal service in Cardona and the Parador lacks consideration for early suppers; between 6pm and 8pm.

Staying at a Parador is a vacation in itself! And this one is a gem. Wish my grandkids could have been with us to run around the castle

Oh What a (K) night!

Posted Oct 3, 2017
What's not to love..a night in a real Castle.! Rustic , yet comfortable with all the amenities . Dinner in the main restaurant was also a highlight . Our room was beautiful with a window that opened to a view of the town of Cardona! Spectacular!!

Stay in a real castle.

Posted Sep 23, 2017
Pros: The history and the views. Postcard perfect.
Cons: Parking issues. Unloading car and driving out to parking lot only allows for a single lane and walkiing back to hotel is uphill.
Beautiful area outside of Barcelona. Wifi. Only negative is the place gets extremely crowded. Not like 1983 when I stayed before. Everything esle however just as I remembered. Very pleasant room and the views everythere in this hotel are amazing. Menu options for dinner are very good and breakfast was also quite nice.

Understaffed facility

Posted Sep 20, 2017
Pros: Location and history
Cons: More staff
Stayed here ten years ago,loved it then but now not the same experience. Some of the staff were great while one was not pleasant .Room was hot,A/C barely worked.One lougne staff did everything possible to help out.He was very accommadating and worked very hard.One other was so unaccommadating that we ate and drank in town rather than deal with her
