This is how Paradors should be. Cardona is an old Castle with massive fortifications and you can see it from miles away. The Castle dominates the town and the location all around it and is also home to the Castle Museum. Drive up the impossible road to the Parador and be welcomed by the friendly staff. The service was excellent...

We loved this romantic castle with its authentic furnishings. Even though the weather had been chilly and rainy, the castle and our rooms were warm (One thing I'm always wary of is old stone buildings in bad weather!). Among our conveniences were a heated towel warmer in the bathroom. !) . We particularly enjoyed a romantic dinner (see pix) but...

I use a rolling walker and requested and received a disabled access room. It was lovely with views over the courtyard and beyond. The room was large and easy to maneuver but as in all paradors, throw rugs were placed on the floor by the bed and are an impediment to wheelchairs and rolling walkers. However, it is easy enough...

The pleasure of staying in a castle so beautifully restored to provide every modern luxury but without spoiling the medieval experience is unsurpassed. The views are magnificent, the rooms and facilities extremely comfortable and stylish (four poster beds are enormous!) and the feeling of being surrounded by history is fantastic! We found the staff utterly delightful, the food delicious, and...

How often do you get to stay in a castle - a real castle mind you, one that's got a history of over a thousand years. Utterly stunning views - especially from the roof terrace, and a hotel which manages to be modern and comfortable, but still feels absolutely true to its heritage. Friendly staff and a delicious restaurant -...

We stayed at this Castle in October and were upgraded to a superior room over looking the courtyard next to the chapel. Very large room with a king 4 post bed, sitting area and large bathroom. Every modern amenity was available without loosing the historical flavor that drips from this property. The castle is on a hill overlooking the town...

The location is every bit as stunning as other reviews here have described it. Wonderful work by whoever oversaw the integration of old (ancient) and new, and restoration vs. preservation works of the venue. The amnesties are what you could expect from a regular 4 star hotel. The staff (and by proxy, the management) however, is another story. Here is...

The view alone is enough to warrant a stay at this hotel, apparently one of the top Parador locations, built at the ancient castle and religious site on the heights above Cardona. Fortunately the accommodation keeps up with the view, and we found the staff friendly and helpful, during our three day stay. The included buffet breakfast was quite wonderful...

Stayed here only one night between Barcelona and Madrid, stopping at Montserrat along the way. Both were great. Make sure, if your driving, keep driving to the front entrance (follow reception sign)of the Castle to unload luggage. Some space is available for parking on top. Self guided tour of the Castle is great. Very good accommodation. The breakfast had a...

We had a great time staying in a real castle, although it was only for one night. The hotel is located on top of a mountain, and since the bus dropped us off in town, we had a steep climb to the top. Well worth it, though. Our room was really nice with a canopy bed and we had fun...
