Cuenca, Spain appears to be off the radar for most Americans/Canadians preferring Toledo instead. Well, Cuenca is a gem of a town worthy of a day or weekend trip from Madrid or Valencia. The Parador is an excellent choice for those who prefer to stay in a historic setting with a true local feel. The location is excellent for hiking...

This former convent makes the trip to Cuenca special. We only stayed one night and took the high speed train from Madrid (only 50 minutes) and it was perfect to get a taste of the city and take in the amazing views from the hotel. The extra charge for a room with a view is worth it! We did have...

Possibly the best Parador in Spain! A grand, former convent with stunning views of the hanging houses on the far side of the ravine. A footbridge across the ravine takes you straight to the heart of the city. Staff were extremely helpful. Bedroom was spacious with a modern bathroom. The breakfast was excellent, but we were slightly disappointed with the...

Stayed here for one night in early October. If you have got the train to Cuenca then you can get a bus to the old town and walk across the bridge!! It is magical to approach the Parador this way!! the receptionists are very friendly and the bar man is the best!! Full marks go to the bar man who...

Great place to stay. Beautiful sight and lovely village. Have been there for a wedding so we could not taste how restaurant was. Through old bridge you can walk into old city but for laziest with 5 euros you can get a a cab and be taken anyware in the city.

Really felt we were staying somewhere special as the decor, artworks and staff were all wonderful. The room was comfortable and the lounge areas every where around the hotel were excellent with sumptuous seating. The food in both the bar and cafe were very good but be warned if you are a vegetarian you will have very little to choose...

Stayed here in July for only one night, which wasn't nearly enough. The building is spectacular, hugging the edge of a cliff, across a pedestrian suspension bridge which is only a two minute walk from the centre of town. The buildings interiors are sumptuous, the furnishings very grand and the vibe chic and quite upmarket. We had two rooms, not...

This converted convent is situated across the gorge from Cuenca old town, with easy access to it across a metal bridge spanning the gorge. As to be expected from a convent, the rooms were small with small windows and felt quite spartan, but I guess fitted in with the history of the building. We had a lovely view across to...

Would definitely recommend this hotel which is in a beautiful location over-looking the 'casas colgadas' of Cuenca. Just a short walk across the metal bridge to the old town with plenty of bars and restaurants and interesting streets to wander. The rooms with a view are very nice and spacious but do get noisy as well as very warm. At...

The Parador at Cuenca is ideally situated to walk across to the old town of Cuenca. It is a beautiful old convent with loads of ambience. I do not agree with the previous comments that the service was bad and the food was of the region which my wife and I found really good although I can understand because of...
