In my experience paradores offer comfortable accommodation in interesting and often stunning locations with first class restaurants at a reasonable cost. This parador is sited in the Castillo de Santa Catalina at the top of a hill above Jaen with glorious views all around. Every member of staff I encountered was friendly and welcoming. This parador is wheelchair friendly with...

This is built as a neighbour to the remains of the old fortress Santa Catalina, high up above the city of Jaen. The Parador itself is nearly built like a castle, and you must spend time walking about in the Parador, The "knights" hall is extraordinary. The rooms are quite similar, but some have better views (we had no 12!)....

Enjoyed everything about staying in this fantastic building, and what a view! What a place! The communal spaces and rooms were of a very high quality as was the food and service. It was a shame wifi was only available in the communal spaces, but we coped!

We have stayed in this hotel on several occasions in a range of standard, superior and "Tower" rooms. The Parador is stunningly located in a substantially reformed portion of the Santa Catalina Castle, the remaining Castle ruins being one of the tourist attractions of Jaen. This location provides visitors with views of the City from outside the Hotel, whereas the...

Great Parador with a phantastic location on the montain hight above the city. Great views arround. High ceiling common rooms and nice decorated halls. Breakfast has looked marvellous but we have it not tried. Also not the dinner because it starts not before 20:30.

Excellent location for beautiful views of Jaén. Take a taxi into Jaen and back, so that you don't worry where to park. Baños árabes are closed on Mondays. The hotel receptionist recommended some very good places for a lunchtime snack in a convivial Spanish atmosphere.

During our week and a half tour of Andalusia, we spent a night at this Parador. The view from our room was outstanding, and I could have spent more time there. The air was cool and if I had more time, I would tried a bit of hiking on the hillside. We had drinks and a snack at the bar,...
