    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    A grand monument from all angles, the four-star Parador de Cuenca is an imposing sight in the heart of the World Heritage city of Cuenca in Castille La Mancha. In a craggy, hilltop home at the lofty heights of the city, the structure overlooks the Huécar Gorge below and confronts the famed Hanging Houses. From every aspect, enjoy dramatic and picturesque views that encompass the rough vegetation, the dynamic terrain and the city’s historic charm. A former monastery building, Parador de Cuenca’s façade boasts a mismatched amalgamation of refined, rustic and town-house style elements. At its heart is a courtyard, where a water fountain fills the space with a gentle trickle and towering cypress trees lend authentic charm. Facilities such as an outdoor pool and a tennis court lie outside the old walls, promising relaxing pastimes amid excellent views. Step inside and the design style is varied and interesting, with soothing and contemporary furnishings in some places, while others indicate the property’s age with exposed wooden beams and tiled flooring. Tapestries, mediaeval-style furniture and grand, arched window frames inhabit the lounging areas which line the courtyard, allowing sunlight to penetrate inside. Guestrooms are elegant and comfortable, with neutral hues accented by pastel shades and floral wall hangings, which contrast rich wooden furniture. Shuttered windows invite in the most spectacular views. The restaurant offers a more authentic atmosphere with a heavily beamed, dark wood ceiling contrasting vibrant purple walls. This is the setting for house specialities and traditional dishes of the Castille la Mancha region, while a summer terrace is open in the more clement months for al fresco dinners accompanied by live music.
