“Perfect stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

I only spent one night at Parador de Alcala, but what an experience! Compared to other hotels in the neighbourhood, price is high but looking at what you get, price is more than justifiable. Rooms are very spacious, tasty designed, wifi is free throughout the hotel and connection is excellent. Breakfast is good. Only negative point: my room's A/C was not able to decrease temperature (though A/C was switched on whole night). Opening the windows would have been a better option. Nevertheless this will not prevent me from coming back and highly recommending this hotel.

The Parador de Alcala de Henares is a modern hotel hidden in a historic shell. The rooms are sleek and super comfortable, spacious enough to accommodate an extra bed so our daughter could share our quarters. (We were in Alcala de Henares to visit her while she attends the university there.) The shower was particularly 21st century! Breakfast was delicious, but that was the only meal we took during our stay.

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They even helped me troubleshoot a vexing computer issue!

If there's anything we could change, it would be the ability to have greater control over the thermostat. (This wasn't just an issue an Parador de Alcala de Henares; it was the same at every hotel we visited in Spain.) This is not to say that the room wasn't comfortable. We just would have preferred a room that was slightly cooler.

I really like this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, modern and quiet. The bathroom sofisticated and practical. Location is great, just metres away from the city centre in the heart of the old town. The restaurant is good, however I was expecting more given the high scores given and how good the rest of the hotel is. I didn't try the spa. I will love to be back to the hotel, I will skip the restaurant and try something else.

Beautiful hotel with ultra modern and spacious rooms. Good location close to the historic center of the city. Food just okay though you can find alternative dining options in the center..keeping in mind Spanish dining hours are much later than most places.

The shopping district is dead in the early afternoon with limited dining options. Was still able to find decent dining by walking into a pub/restaurant that looked closed...opened into a dining area with an extensive menu. If worst comes to worst there's always the mcdonalds by the town square

We stayed he while visiting our son who is studying at University here. We just had a room only deal. The hotel as it's website describes is a modern refurbishment of an historic building on the edge of the old part of the town. The standard room we had was modern, clean and comfortable. Stylishly designed it was a of a quality I would expect in a much more expensive hotel. We didn't eat in the hotel as there were plenty of options in the town. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the bus stop for bus 824 that goes to the airport (40 mins and from memory less than €10 single for 2) You are also about 15 mins walk to the train station & a train about 40 mins into Madrid. There is also an attractive internal courtyard that looked pleasant to sit out in

This Parador is unique as it feels modern and was quite a architectural feat to achieve what they have. Very comfortable rooms with sleek designs and modern trendy fittings.

One night was sufficient and enjoyable and the hotel is perfectly located to explore the historical centre of town.

The restaurant was slightly disappointing. It wasn't bad but not of the standard you would expect in such a place. The dishes were slightly amateurish which was a letdown however the setting was nice and the lady managing dinner service was professional.

The Spa was excellent although pricey at 30 euro but worth the treat. A very comfortable, relaxing and well maintained spa.

This Parador is very nicely renovated.
The room is quite big and not noisy. The material used and the design are unfortunately not always the best and some part of the room are deteriorating quite fast.
The breakfast was very well presented and really good!

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
