|A two-night stay in August 2013 was just fantastic. The room was very well-appointed whilst the cloisters restaurant was just stunning, open to the skies as darkness fell. So atmospheric! I felt very privileged to stay in such a beautiful parador in an amazing setting, perched across the footbridge from the old town and looking across to the historic, beautiful hanging houses (colgadas). I shall certainly return to this wonderful place and stay at the parador again in order to be able to tour the surrounding countryside.|

|We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Cuenca. The staff were very helpful on reception, even though they had a major that afternoon. The room was very comfortable. We ate in the beautiful restaurant the food was delicious although the service was patchy because of the function. All in all a delightful place to stay and visit|

|We stayed here in May with friends and our visit was a highlight of our trip to Spain. Cuenca is a spectacular town and the parador was the perfect place to enhance the magic of the place. The public rooms are amazing, our bedrooms were beautiful with lovely soft furnishings, and spotlessly clean. The food was not as good as I had hoped, but there was a wedding the day of our stay, so this may have been the cause. The only real concern was the 'parking attendant' who fleeced us of 20 euro after 'helping' us to park . (N.B. parking IS a bit of a problem.) Apparently he is a gypsy who cons tourists, so beware.|

|We loved the hotel very much. A nice setting and a -quite simple- but good room. The staff was not very interested in the guests needs. At the gate we were directed to the garage. Which made it necessary to carry our luggage down the road and some steps. This while there was plenty of space in front of he hotel to park the car for a few minutes and unload the luggage. The restaurant was terrible, both the staff as the food. Starting with a glass of Cava that was almost not sparking anymore as it was yesterday bottle. The lamb we had was tastless and must have been simmered for hours and hours. The salad was just salad. You do not need a cook for such food.The restauranmt staff spoke almost no English or French or German, anyway less English then we spoke Spanish and we did not study that language at all. The experience in Cuenca made us decide not to have meals in the other paradores that we were going to visit. Maybe we missed some goof food as result thereof but we could not take the chance of a other disaster as in the Cuenca restaurant.|
