We enjoyed very hot days in Cuenca, and even though we stayed only one night, we made the best use of their nice swimming pool and restaurant. Food quality is in line with the rest of Paradores. Rooms are not very big but this is something we don't care that much. We liked the common areas a lot, really well refurbished. It is also very close to the centre of Cuenca, only few meters from San Pablo bridge.

Room Tip: Ask for views to the river or the town.

A monastery with a peaceful and calm atmosphere, just outside the old town of Cuenca, with a stunning view of the top of the hill and the connecting bridge a few meters out of the Parador.
Fabulous dining hall, and very good breakfast (they had plenty of Jamon Iberico, the best cut in Spain, freshly squeezed orange juice, and much more).
Few car spaces outside the building, better get there early, otherwise is a long way to the nearest parking.

We loved walking in the lobby and trying on the ‘king’s chairs”. We also loved sitting at a table in the internal patio.

Our room faced a beautiful green valley and was very quiet. The rooms facing the Casas Colgadas are next to the hotel parking and a very busy front entrance. The windows shutters in our room were a bit hard to open.

As we arrived at the hotel, a dodgy looking man was trying to “usher” us to a parking spot, but we pretended that we didn’t speak English and he went away. If you drive here, be early, because the parking spots at the front of the hotel fill in quickly.

Fabulous place,I have just a few reservations. Much of the place could do with a facelift! the display cabinets with gifts in, look as if someone set them out in the 1990's and not disturbed them since! The staff were delightful and helpful.The dining room needed a little music as the atmosphere was rather solemn and sober. ( I know it was a convent once, but it felt as if the diners had taken a vow of silence!The food was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the "Hanging houses "

Once this was a monastery and it still has a bit of this atmosphere. The building is lovely and it overlooks the canyon to the old town of Cuenca. The parador is visited by many older foreign couples, so if you prefer to be among the Spanish, rather go to other Paradores like Olite, Salamanca or Siguenza.

Room Tip: Decide what you want to see, the courtyard or the mountains or the canyon with the old town

This parador, located in a 400+ year old monastary, is absolutely wonderful! The building is gorgeously restored, the rooms are lovely and the lactation is just breathtaking. The pool is especially fabulous to boot. I highly recommend it!

Apart from an issue with the air conditioning which the very friendly and efficient staff resolved, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this characterful hotel, and the fascinating medaeival town a few minutes walk across the bridge.
We opted for the tasting menu and were professionally served with one of the best Parardaor meals - of dozens experienced. Delightful restaurant staff and wines.
