“Very pleasant parador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

This convent-turned-hotel proved to be a relaxing experience. Although less classy than its counterpart in Trujillo that we visited three days earlier, the premises were a wonderful place to hang around and simply enjoy life. Moreover, we had a perfect dining experience with the monthly menu: upscale, inventive meals for a sharp price served on a romantic patio.
When in Almagro, look no further!
The rather unattractive town center is just 5' on foot away, but really, in a hotel like this, one should honestly spend as much time as possible.

Absolutely loved this parador. The manager had emailed us before the stay with information of a musical evening. It was a guy playing beautiful guitar music over dinner which really made for a lovely experience. The manager and staff made us most welcome. Really really lovely.

My husband and I recently stayed at this parador. This was our second parador visit this year and I have to say that it was fantastic. This old monastery was calm, quiet and tastefully decorated. The pool was a great perk after a morning of walking in the town. The room had a/c and was very big. The facilities were in better condition than the last parador we stayed in. We did not eat there but enjoyed a menu of the day at the restaurant across the street. The town is small which makes for an easy visit. The square is nice and full of food options. The parador is about 5 mins walking from the plaza mayor.

We travelled by bus and it dropped us off in town and about a 15 min walk to the hotel. There is no sign for the bus stop but the bar it drops you off at is where people wait to get picked up. You pay for your ticket on the bus. There is a bus schedule posted outside the bar but get there earlier than the time it states because buses sometimes run earlier than the time stated. The train station is a bit further away.

Overall a really great stay at the parador and would completely recommend it to everyone including families with children.

We had very good one night stay at this hotel. The rooms are not equiped with the latest features. But I am sure you won't expect thtat at a place like this. The pool area is not very large but sufficient for a quick jump and refreshment.
The dinner in the inner courtyard was wonderful. Including a duo playing classical music.

Room Tip: Double check, that you get a double bed!

This is a superb example of a paradore. It is a converted 17th century convent and has maintained all the historical features. Cloisters, arches, shuttered windows and stone corridors all make for a wonderful experience. You can almost imagine the nuns walking in quiet contemplation and prayer! The rooms are all different - we had to get moved as there was a minor problem with the air conditioning - so we got to see a couple of the rooms. They are very stylish with cool tiled floors and great bathrooms.

There is a great swimming pool with lovely gardens - very welcome in the July heat. The hotel is very central and a few minutes walk from the historical centre of Almagro - with its medieval architecture. It was lovely to sit in the Plaza Major in the evening watching the children play as the heat dissipated.

Valdepenas is worth a visit with its lovely Bodegas.

I would highly recommend the Parador.

We loved this parador as it was in a really delightful setting. The building itself was very old and really attractive. Both our snack lunch and the meal in the evening were great and the staff very friendly. Our room was very clean and attractively laid out with a lovely stone floor as was the bathroom.

As other reviewers have said the town is very sleepy but a true Spanish feel

During our trip to Spain in June we visited 3 paradors (Merida, Carmona, Almagro) this was the best by far.

I use a rolling walker and had a standard room at this parador. Accessibility in the room and within the parador was adequate but the entrance to the hotel was not ramped and was difficult. There were few alternatives in and near the parador for snacks or light lunch or dinner. My wife walked into the center of town which I had seen in the past and she was enthralled with the theater and the buildings on the town square. We enjoyed the neighboring park which was also enjoyed by locals. The room was exceptionally lovely with a window overlooking the garden. The building has a very calm feeling and is a wonderful place to rest and relax.
