View. Front desk. Architecture. Vaulted ceiling of bar area. Nice seating areas.
Lack of ambience: unlit fireplaces, holiday season without any candles, cold temperatures inside. Meals were disappointing in comparison to other paradores we stayed.
The hotel and location is beautiful. The child's crib provided was very comfortable. The neighboring castle is a very cool visit as well.
Getting down into the city is either a very long and steep walk, or driving down to possibly not find parking. We did eventually find a place to park but it was a very tight fit.
The view from the Parador de Jaén is amazing in its expanse. My husband said that he felt that he was seeing all of Europe (if all of Europe were covered hillside after hillside after hillside for hundreds of miles with olive groves!) Being on the grounds of the historic Castillo de Santa Catalina was another plus. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, frequently going out of their way for our convenience. There was a lovely outdoor swimming pool, which we unfortunately couldn't enjoy because of the time of year. We would definitely go back to the Parador de Jaén.
We were at the Parador de Jaén in December, and its common rooms with towering castle-like ceilings were somewhat cold. (But we loved the sense of being in a castle, anyhow.)
Everything, the hotel is in a spectaculor location. Get there early for sunset. Enjoy a reasonably priced dinner (tapas) in the wonderful bar. Take a walk to the lookout and enjoy the Jaen cathedral at dusk as the lights come on.
Not worth mentioning as the location is the star attraction.
Magnificent location high above the city,baronial setting with great staff keen to help.
The location was obviously superb with great views.
The price of breakfast and evening meals was very high which is why we did not partake
staying in a real castle excellent restaurant superb location on mountain top overlooking city of Jaen
drive up mountainside to castle. a bit pricey
Location, room with a stunning view towards the mountain, very good breakfast (choice, service, quality) although a bit pricey, free parking in front of the hotel, friendly and helpful staff, good English. Charged us the "price of the day" for the room which was 40€ lower than the one we've booked for, very nice surprise! One free welcome drink at the bar. Beautiful view from almost everywhere. Possibility of a nice walk around the premises.
A bit dated.
Breakfast buffet Location
poor wifi away from main areas
The parador has an absolutely stunning position on the hill above Jaen with beautiful viewss from the bedroom. We were sad to leave as we had such a lovely peaceful stay.
Beautiful building and the public areas are dramatic.
The rome are starting to look a bit out-of-date. Noisy dogs outside, noisy A/C inside.
The hotel is in a wonderful location with exceptional views. I don't know what the views are like from all the rooms but we have stayed here twice and had fabulous views from the bedroom balcony both times. The hotel is very atmospheric. We did not eat at the hotel on this occasion as I have not been too impressed with Parador meals in the past. However, they are not bad and as there is very little within easy reach of this hotel it is not a bad choice. I'm ashamed to say we bought a Spanish Tortilla and some allioli from a supermarket and ate this on the balcony with a glass (or 2) of wine and watched the sun go down. Fantastic. Parking was easy (important in Spain where parking can be difficult) Lovely walk to the cross (both in the day and after sunset) The room was very good and I would recommend as a comfortable and extraordinary venue
Jaen is a very busy and noisy city. The cathedral is huge but is best viewed from the hotel site (ie the view). I would not advise venturing into Jaen itself. Just enjoy the views from the hotel site. We stayed there as a stop off between Cordoba and Granada. WIFI not available in rooms (public areas only) but we were not bothered by this. .
The location was wonderful, views amazing, room very comfortable.
The restaurant was a little high end to be the only option for a multiple night stay - very delishious, beautifully presented and excellent service. A gift shop would have been nice to pick up a memento.
The location is more stunning than photos show. Beautiful views of the town and countryside. Hiking available from the Parador.
A bit expensive.
I loved the ambiance of the castle and the views were stunning
Definitely 4 star quality Excellent cuisine Best appointed bathroom facilities
Bedroom French windows could not be fastened in the open position
Everything from the castle to the bars & restaurant.
The bedrooms were comfortable and furnished in keeping with the historic charm but the bathrooms need some updating
The location and views. The waiter service was very friendly and good, even if a little slow at times. Excellent food. Good touring location for Jaen, Baeza and Ubeda.
Only the bill at the end of our stay, but we knew what it would be.
Location, the building inside is like a castle, the food during breakfast and in the evening is excellent, parking for free in front of hotel
Our sleep was interrupted by dogs barking loudly all night. Apart from that, it is a wonderful place to stay with fantastic views.
Friendly staff, good food and beautiful location. What more can you ask for?
the location is fantastic, the views all round simply stunning
Both when checking in and out we were served by a middle-aged male member of staff whose unpleasantly abrupt manner we found rather off-putting
All the facilities were excellent. Pool, food in the restaurant was great.
The cost of breakfast exorbitant and coffee from the bar was not good.
The views and the environment were splendid.
