This newly opened hotel is located in Alcala de Henares, Madrid, only 26 km from the capital city and 20 km away from Barajas International Airport and IFEMA. It has 128 guestrooms. Parador de Alcala de Henares is housed in a magnificent seventeenth-century building, the former Santo Tomas Dominican Convent and School. It is one of the city's landmarks along with Hosteria del Estudiante, in the former Minor School of San Jeronimo, founded by Cardinal Cisneros in 1510 and overlooking the beautiful Patio Trilingue at the University of Alcala de Henares. These monuments form a complex that was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Around the cloisters at the Santo Tomas School-Convent there are the restaurant, the bar, the breakfast room, the guests' lounge, and the night bar. There is also restaurant in Hosteria del Estudiante, which serves a wide range of courses, including Cervantine food and the well-known traditional "costradas". The Parador has a swimming pool, which is open only in the summer. In addition, the hotel boasts twelve rooms available for conferences, meetings, and other events. They cover nearly 1,000 square metres. Some of them even have a separate reception area. The Parador also offers parking for 124 vehicles. All in all, it is a wise combination of tradition and avant-garde, creating a space where you can relax or hold successful business meetings in a comfortable place living up to the high quality standards of Paradores.

The hotel rooms are nice, but managing how to get the right amount of light where you want it is awkward, given the preset "settings" for light. In particular, low light or light only in the bathroom. Complicated is also the word for lowering the
shades, internet, the shower, etc, it requires a lot of reading up on instructions before you decide to tackle those "complicated" tasks. The hotel is in a nice area and comfortable, but feels too impersonal in its vast expanses of nothingness.
