|The position of the hotel was stunning and the historic convent was brilliantly preserved in the current hotel layout, particular highlights being the wonderful use of the cloisters as a covered corridor around the courtyard, the amazing restaurant with its lectern retained and the religious paintings on the ceiling of the bar. We had specifically requested a room with a view, and the outlook we had was a wonderful view of the medieval town and the bridge over the gorge. The receptionist was very helpful both when we arrived and later when we wanted directions and again when we had a problem with our shutters blowing open in a gale. The only negative I would mention was that the food in the restaurant was not as good as we have experienced in other paradors - it was quite good but not exceptional. We stayed 3 nights, and would have eaten elsewhere if we could have found a restaurant on the Sunday night, but could not so went back to the restaurant in the parador. The over-riding memories are, however, very positive - Cuenca and the area are very well worth visiting, and little known in UK.|

|We enjoyed our stay at this parador. Everything was OK. The location of the hotel was very convenient for sightseeing. We slept well, as it was quiet in the night. The breakfast was excellent, the evening meal began too late (at 20.30 as I remember). In Russia we usually have our evening meal an hour and a half earlier, we discussed it with other tourists and they agreed that 19.00 would be much better. The staff was friendly and helpful. It would be better if tourists had more direction signs and guide boards to the parador. We had a navigator but could not find the parador without help of Cuenca inhabitants. We would recommend visiting this hotel without hesitation to all our friends and other people.|

|I can only reiterate all the comments of everyone who have previously contributed. The location, the rooms, the food (especially the breakfast)the staff were all what I have now come to expect when visiting Paradores. As I have mentioned in my previous comments on other Paradores -: Paradores = Perfection|
