Paradores, I have found, are usually a good deal in Spain. This one was in that for 205 euros we got a "standard" room for 2 nights that was big, with a inside terrace facing the restaurant courtyard (Room 121), with a little sitting area, room safe, small fridge, big bathroom with 2 sinks, welcome drink (wine, beer, coffee or soft drink) is you sign up in their freq. stay program (Amigos). The good thing about this program is that we have been members for many years although we only go to a Parador or two or three every 3 years or so. You lose your points (no biggie unless you travel to Spain a lot) but never your welcome drink bennie. The actual Parador was elegant, historic and in a wonderful location. Left the car at the end of the street right on the plaza in front of the hotel while we took the suitcase in and then just parked about a block down the street in the free parking that is at the end of that street, facing the outer wall and view of the olive groves, across from a ceramics shop. Our room came with the free breakfast (they don't always, sometimes it is a deal and sometimes not) and it was OK (the best one ever was at the Santiago de Compostela Parador) although the only eggs were in the tortilla española the first morning but the second morning the waiter was more intent on setting up the tables for lunch than he was in bringing stuff out so it was a minimalist breakfast. Their coffee (one pot of strong coffee, one pot of hot, frothy milk) is always a great part of these breakfasts for us. Room-wise though we liked it (the end of the hall, upstairs) as no one walked by, every morning at about 6-6:30 there was a lot of banging from the kitchen below which would wake us up. Wifi in the room great and free. Maid service excellent. Could have paid more for a better view, no terrace room but folks who stayed there said it was too noisy and warm as the a/c barely cooled the room down but that is usually due to the Spanish a/c system. My mother, who has a small apt. in Madrid always has that problem with her a/c too. Town is great to walk around in day (though most things close down for siesta) and at night when the buildings are all lit up.

Room Tip: Room 121 was large with nice size terrace but very loud for about 5 minutes every early AM we were there. This was a standard room.

Lovely parador, but like others in the chain, they have no provision for guests to have coffee prior to the breakfast room opening at 8 AM. Surely my wife and I aren't the only ones who would appreciate either a hot water pot in the room or communal coffee in the lobby. Also, even tho the outside temp reached 80 deg F in late April the A/C was not activated. Why? Too early in the year, or not hot enough? For the money paid A/C ought to be available. Hot rooms equal a bad night's sleep.

My wife and I stayed at the Parador in April. The hotel is in a stunning 16th century building that is situated in a square of equally stunning 16th century buildings in the centre of the old town of Ubeda.
Inside the hotel is a covered courtyard and this leads to the rooms which are situated on the first floor. Our room was very comfortable and was actually quite large.
Our room had a large four poster bed and had a beautiful beamed ceiling.
We booked on a half board basis and the evening meal matched the quality of the hotel. We had a beautiful 3 course meal of a very high standard.
The cost of our room and meal plus breakfast was €130 which I think is exceptional value for money.

We stayed here for one night during a tour of Andalusia in March / April 2014. Driving up to the hotel caused our sat nav some problems, so that we arrived in the square in front of the hotel. This was no problem to the staff who were happy for us to check in and advised us about nearby parking. (The lack of parking is the only reason I have marked the hotel down). The hotel is a beautiful building located, right next to the Chapel of San Salvador. Our room, complete with four poster bed overlooked the very pretty courtyard and was reasonably quiet. There is a small bar next to the restaurant and also a large public area of seating just inside the main door. Both were served by one waitress, however she was friendly and efficient.

We didn't eat in the hotel, but instead enjoyed a meal outside one of the restaurants a couple of streets away. It was a warm early April evening, and we sat amongst Spanish families coming together for Samana Santa.

Breakfast the following morning was as usual for a parador plentiful and of good quality. Overall a great hotel in a lovely town.

Room Tip: An internal room makes for a good nights sleep

This Parador is set in the loveliest of settings with lots of old buildings all within a very short distance located around a pedestrian square. There is no parking except off street parking approx 2 mins walk away. We went out of season so I imagine in season, parking could present a problem. If you are quick you can park on the road leading to the Parador but merely to offload. We had a garden room with our own table and chairs in a lovely tranquil garden with a fountain and perfumed plants, a perfect place to sit relax and unwind. The building is lovely and has all the amenities a modern hotel has to offer but in a very olde world style. There is a dearth of restaurants nearby but it's an easy walk into the town itself. We choose to take a tour of the town on a small tourist train. If you have any back problems or do not like being shaken, do not take this ride. The majority of it is over cobbles and speed bumps, there is an alternative ride by a small tourist bus which may be better but as we didn't try it, not sure. There are two tourist information shops opposite the hotel where these rides depart. If the trains are in, it's a little more difficult to park to offload. The food in the hotel was very nice and the buffet plentiful. The church is located next to the Parador but we were not disturbed by the noise, being on the opposite side. I would not have any hesitation in recommending this hotel as stopping off point to visit Ubeda and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: The garden room cost a little more and maybe at other times may be noisy because other rooms open onto this area but when we were there, we had the place to ourselves which was lovely. Always best to speak to the hotel directly and tell them your requirements
