Hotel Convento del Giraldo4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Check in was smooth and professional, we particularly liked not being asked for a credit card on arrival. The room itself (303) had a creaky 4 poster bed but was spacious and had plenty of storage space. It had stunning views over the Parador in one direction and the Cathedral in the other. The bathroom was spacious with double sinks and a good hairdryer, unfortunately the shower dribbled due to the size of the holes in the shower head. Had these been the normal size then the shower would have been quite powerful. The a/c worked well and kept the room at a comfortable temperature. The only negative with the room was the noise from next door's bathroom both plumbing and child! The level of sound insulation was poor. The breakfast room was on a mezzanine and was large and airy. The food selection was varied with the usual foods you would expect to find at a hotel of this standard. As is common with many 'hot' buffets, it wasn't hot in fact it was barely warm, a shame really as the food was tasty. The staff was polite and helpful.
Positives: - Rooms are extraordinarily beautiful, with big beds and old pieces of furniture; it is clear on the first sight that the building has its fair share of history - It is just a few meters from the main square and the cathedral - there was a breakfast promotion that made the price/value ratio really favourable (selection is also wide enough) Summary: It is accommodation with great atmosphere in a beautiful small town, but I don't recommend to come by car - parking is scarce and the hotel charges around 16 euros per day which is rather expensive.
The room was okay. A comfortable bed but no view at all from our window. Be warned though. The breakfast was terrible. The hot dishes were stone cold and there was little variety. Good location but there are better choices in Cuenca and better value.
So sorry I can't do it in Spanish but I write it in English, French and Dutch! The rooms are beautiful just as mentioned on the site! The rooms at the backside are less noisy than those on the frontside. The A.C. did n't work properly or not. The hairdryer was not working. We booked three months ago two rooms en we hopend to be next to each other but it wasn't. The employees could have some politeness lessons, even how to say Ola!! The receptionist was super unfriendly and not able to receive her guests kindly and fully expected. She was the only one who knows English but she avoid to solve problems and make them looked as our mistake. Les chambres sont magnifiques mais l'air conditionné ne marchait pas ou fessait trop de bruit. Les chambres à l'arrière étaient plus paisibles qu' à l'avant. Le personnel était désagréables et manquent de politesse. Même un bonjour est trop! Ne parlons pas de la réceptionniste! Sachant l'anglais mais pas intéressée du tout d'être au service de ses clients. Allés op de site klopt en de reviews ook. Er kan geen lach af bij het personeel, beleefdheid kent men niet speciaal de receptioniste! Airco defect of luidruchtig, haardrogers kapot maar dat lag aan ons ze de dame. Het was en is een nonnenklooster!😂
Nice hotel. Room was good size, beams made it interesting. Service was ok, AC not turned on by management yet and although a fan was offered, it was never delivered after several attempts to get it. Windows opened to back of hotel, no view, but a pedestrian street which was noisy and smoky until late and early morning. Try to sleep with windows opened with noise and cigarette smell or be hot and steamy? Not very good rest unfortunately
Quaint hotel in the middle of everything at the old part of town. Comfortable, quiet, clean, inexpensive, highly recommended. Hotel has arrangements with a parking building about 150 yrds away at reasonable rates. Just one block from main square, Town Hall and Cathedral. Plenty of good restaurants near by.
This place has history, charm and a great location. Staff was friendly, parking just up the block for 16 euros. A square with several restaurants to choose from was minutes away. A ten minute walk up the hill had fancier restaurants and unbelievable views. We hiked (one hour) up to the statue of Jesus which afforded breathtaking vistas and eagles! Don't miss this town.
We had a set of top floor rooms. They were spacious and comfortable. The extra cost for breakfast was well worth it. Very close to the cathedral and the bridge. The town was spectacular after dark. The parking, though extra, was close and reasonable.
We stayed in the hotel for our final 2 nights in Spain and was looking forward to staying in our junior suite! However it was very disappointing. The suite was dusty, the mirror fell off the wall and there was no aircon! When we asked about the aircon we were told by the not so helpful receptionist "it's cold, open the window". The night time did cool down but it was 25 degrees in the day and aircon was needed! It was a great location and our bed was very comfortable but we still feel it wasn't worth £130 per night.
Located on the street leading to the top of the city. Large room updated amenities Public parking up the hill about 150 yards. Hotel guest discounted. Small plaza with few shops. Driving in is difficult to find entry point
