Parador de Úbeda4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Wonderful old building, like all the paradors of Spain. The room has lots of lovely old tiles, coffered oak doors, marble floor in the bathroom, floor to ceiling frosted window in the the bathroom. It is located in an ancient square right next to an cathedral (don't miss touring it) and the church bells go OFF at 11 PM and don't come on until a decent vacation wake up time in the AM. But parking is a menace, outside the walls of the historic town. One could go on for hours looking for a parking spot, dragging luggage quite a ways. Like all paradors, no welcome bellhop or help with luggage. You need to carry your luggage up 10 stairs to the lobby, so anticipate this and consolidate in a small bag. Again like all paradors, a very hard bed, always twins. Unlike other paradors, very little counter space in the one-sink bathroom. Not even a built in kleenex box, and no soap dish or ledge to put down your soap or shampoo. The hairdryer is ancient and it won't stay "on" unless you hold it down hard with one finger. It is a really basic place on the comfort scale. We reserved to eat in their dining room. My husband's corvina was delicious but the tomato cod stew was absolutely inedible. The area is Spain's olive growing kingdom and interesting to see all the orchards and farmland from the high vista where you park your car. But the parador was the least appealing of the several we sampled, the town of minor interest, and it was the most uncomfortable accommodation on our 2 week stay in Spain.
Rooms ok and probably merit the 4 star rating. Parking in front to unload luggage, but then a bit of a walk to the lot. Patio on ground floor is ok, but not ahir-conditioned. Careful where you sit if it rains. Staff are all great. Restaurant was a major disappointment. Cozy, not elegant, but the food was the worst that I have had at the some 12 paradores where I have stayed. (Nerja, Toledo, Arcos, Ronda, Leon, etc.) Stuffed pepper appetizer was good. The lomo de ternera was as tough as the proverbial shoe leather and inedible. The waiter graciously took it back and the chef agreed. I ordered Solomillo de cebón on the second try. It has to be served rare, but even at that was hardly chewable. Wine and dessert were good, but the overall experience was not.
Oh wow, this is a an amazing Parador with stunning architecture Amazing service with massive rooms and even bigger en suite bathroom Situated in the historical part of Ubeda which is a beautiful town with loads of bars and upmarket dining
This is a wonderful hotel. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the front desk staff before being given advice on where we could park the car (there is no parking in the immediate vicinity of the hotel - we parked about 200 metres away). The hotel's location is superb, in the main square of Ubeda, next to a striking church - we were fortunate that our room overlooked the square and provided excellent views. Our first floor room was accessed via a grand staircase (or lift as an alternative), the room was brilliant with four poster bed, antique furniture and high wooden ceiling. The room also had doors that opened into a (very) small balcony - great for watching the world go by, or as we did, to track an approaching storm). The bathroom was a reasonable size and had a good selection of quality toiletries. The top also had a safe and refrigerator. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay - highly recommend.
My visit was very short, only one day, but it is enough to appreciate the elegance of the hotel, the quality of the service, the confort of the room and the gentility and competance of all staff. If I will visit again Ubeda certainly I will sleep again in Parador
This is the first time we've ever stayed at a Parador and it was a lovely experience. The hotel was full of character and located in a very quiet, peaceful part of town. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a small balcony overlooking the restaurant. The bathroom was a decent size and well equipped. Breakfast choice was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. No parking at the hotel but plenty of free, on-street parking nearby. You can drive up to the hotel to unload. Only one night here but most enjoyable and would recommend anybody to use this hotel if you're visiting Ubeda.
As you drive into the heart of this old town to unload your bags at the steps of a 16th century Renaissance palace, you can forgive yourself feeling just a little regal. Everything in the hotel was spot on - staff, food, drinks, bedrooms, cleanliness, etc. No complaints.
The Parador is right in the middle of the gorgeous centre of Ubeda. You can park your car for free on a small parking lot nearby. We were greeted with a smile and were given some information about Ubeda and Baeza. The room was spacious, it had a cosy dubble bed and a big bathroom. The style is rustic and that just totally fits with the style of the magnificent building. We always sleep with ear plugs, but I'm not sure I would have really needed them, as our room seemed to be fairly quiet. Breakfast was good, everything was as it should be. When staying in Ubeda, I definitely recommend this Parador.
Car parking can be a problem as public areas can be very restricted at peak times. Nearest pay to park is some way off. Otherwise hotel full of character. However, lacking in outside space with only limited number of rooms having access to small garden.
We so enjoyed our time here, the room was lovely. The dinner was excellent,we had Aperitif of two different choices the main dish was a delicious loin of Hake, the red wine was good. We were there during Holy Week so the town had different processions at different places in the town we were able to be a part of this amazing experience. We also visited a family olive farm near by which only added to the trip.
