a great castle but not a luxury hotel
Posted Apr 19, 2016 on Hotels
This Parador is beautiful in a magnificent setting, the receptionists are helpful, introducing good restaurants nearby which are to our satisfaction. However, one or 2 corners of our room # 2 was with certain smell, seemed from ducting or something soaked in water for long. And, in the morning you would wake up easily by the smell from Kitchen.
My friend who stayed at Room# 4 said that her floor near the bathroom created noise when you walked on it.
We checked in at noon, upon our return from dinner, our bed was not yet set properly in the first day, no linen covering the carpet, bed lining not yet removed.
After 8pm, no restaurants/pintxos house next to the hotel were opened. Luckily the cafe in the same premises served sandwiches & drinks.
Do request ground floor if you have bulky baggages even lift is available.
Despite the above, I really like this castle. The terrace with gorgeous view. And, the design for access to it is easy & the lift brought you up from the street is really helpful.
Glad that the castle is well maintained.
