Some sensational rooms.
This Parador situated in the castle of Alarcon has only 16 rooms. The most sensational are situated in the main tower of the castle.
One room per floor; a total of 6 floors. Certain rooms have no windows. The one we occupied on the 5th floor had some openings in the walls that are more than 1 meter thick.
From the hotel we had magnificent sights on the gorges of the river Jucar and on other medieval fortifications of the town of Alarcon. The place is very quiet and very comfortable according to the classification 4 stars of this Parador.
The reception was friendly and efficient but as often in Spain (outside the Costas) speaking a few words of Spanish improved the contact and service.
We have not tried the restaurant except for breakfast, but ate in asador located on the small square at the entrance of the castle. Actually when we arrived around 13 h the waiters were so busy that they didn't care about new arrivals.
Easy parking next to the garden of the Parador.
