|Our third Parador stay. Not what we expected. Extremely modern. This Parador is a hotel that is used by locals for weddings, etc., so had a city hotel feel. The town square is a few minute walk from the Parador. We were fortunate that a medieval festival was happening so lots of local interaction, which we enjoy. Lots of great restaurants outside the Parador to choose from. Bathroom was beautiful!|

|We really liked the hotel, the bar and the outdoor patio right outside the bar area and everything about the Parador. Would go back. 45 minute train ride into Madrid with a connection to the underground. Easier than staying in downtown Mardrid. We stayed there in May, 2014. Amelia and her group on the front desk were also excellent.|
