We had a family room. I don't think the second part of the room had been used for a while. It smelled musty the entire stay (about 4 nights). Hotel breakfast was outstanding, among the best we had in spain. We were a bit surprised and dissapointed that the hotel pool was not open in early June. It was very...

Yes, the room and the Parador is very modern, very cool, very hip BUT we found it to be a nice change of pace from most of the rest of Spain. The people at the front desk could not have been nicer or more helpful. The bar area was quiet and the bartender was very attentive. We had dinner here...

This is a very modern hotel created around an old building. The designers have managed to create an hotel which totally lacks character. Yes, it's very modern and the rooms were comfortable but so dark and no sense of the history of your surroundings. I was very disappointed. The lighting systems in the bedroom are extremely complicated and I never...

Modern rooms with high-tech lighting system, very modern bathroom and shower facilities. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast excellent buffet. Hotel is on a quite street but hardly any distance from the centre of the city.

Outstanding architectural solution - ancient and contemporary elements integrated together. Relaxing environment, room comfort and design are enjoyable, very nice spa, good restaurant so we did not want to go out to get back to the outer world.

We have visited Alcala de Henares from Australia several times. We are captivated with its history and style. But in October we stayed for the first time at the Parador. What a treat. Beautiful surroundings and very stylish decor. However, it was the friendly and helpful staff who made the stay such great value. The breakfast was exceptionally nice. We...

Just came back from a week in Spain visiting my daughter, who is studying in Alcala de Henares. I did some research and decided to stay here soley based on its location to the university. This place was awesome! Contemporary rooms set in a 16th century restored convent/monastery. Architecture is amazing. Rooms (including the bathrooms) are over the top. Book...

We had a dinner in Alcala in the restaurant Pradores and it was perfect. Nice menu, nice location, great spanish food and great spanish wine. We reccommend to try the fish: it was just delicious. Make a reservation, as the restaurant it's very busy.

As with many buildings in Spain, this Parador is a mix of the ultra modern with a medieval building. Rooms have state of the art lighting control, glass footed wet rooms and big beds. Spa excellent. There are two restaurants, one in the main building and another gastronomic one over the road in an old refectory. Food good in both....

Firstly, Alcala is a wonderful place, and if like us , you arrive on the Cervants medieval weekend, it is even better. The parador is a modern conversion of an old building, with a vast maze of rooms built on behind, arranged in inward looking squares, with a Japanese themed garden in the middle. The staff are very helpful and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the birthplace of Cervantes, where every nook and cranny oozes art and culture, stands the Parador de Alcala, a 17th-century monastery school and student lodgings located in the former San Jeronimo College. However, do not let so much history overwhelm you, because the hotel offers the perfect combination of tradition and avant-garde. The interior decor is of a modern design: tasteful, minimalist and extremely elegant. The services are without par: in addition to the standard offerings at Paradores, there is a spa, business center, convention centers and twelve conference rooms. 26 Kilometers from Madrid, 20 kilometers from Barajas International Airport and the trade fair facilities at IFEMA, and just 2 kilometers from the train station, the Parador's location in this World Heritage City is one of its main advantages. ... more   less
