For one who absorbs history through the ambience of his surroundings as much as through the facts themselves, this is the place to be - in the centre of town and adjacent to the Cathedral. The very stones, the corridors, the furnishings make it a real delight. Of course, for those more interested in modern appointments, the weak wifi signal...

We have stayed in quite a few paradores but this is was by far the best . The location is perfect, bang in the middle of town next to the city square and cathedral, if driving then trust the satnav because it takes you down roads that look like you should not be driving on but it is correct ....

We were using a manual wheelchair and the outside step was hard to climb but thankfully several strangers helped get the chair over the kerb. Once inside, the staff were extremely helpful in showing us how to access the coffee bar and lavatory without navigating any more steps. This is an ancient and beautiful building and is a great place...

We've been to many Paradores they are all very good but this one is by far the best!! The staff went above and beyond to give us the best service (we have dietary restrictions and they were very helpful). The building is astonishingly beautiful!!

Wandering around this historic property is part of the enchantment of staying here. The antiques, art work, and comfortable furniture invite you to linger. Reading about the era when this was a hospital engage you further. While the front desk and bar staff may not be the most personable (many seem to have been with the property since the original...

This was my 5th stay at this parador. Everything is excellent! It is not only that you are staying at a hotel, but it IS the building and the experience of staying there! You have been transformed to the 15th century, but with all of the modern amenities! You must experience this parador! Staff are competent, friendly, and always helpful!...
