We were 3 nights and it is beautiful. The location is perfect for visiting nearby sites such as Medinaceli, Termas, El monasterio de piedra... The hotel has a restaurant with very tasty food... the rooms are very confortable. The landscape from the hotel are amazing!
Decided to stop here after driving a few hours after arriving in Madrid from Canada. Was an amazing setting, in a canyon, with some great views! The castle itself was beautiful, and grounds were extremely nice as well. A picturesque castle in a gorgeous setting!! The room we got was a good size, clean, and well kept. The staff were very friendly and we were offered a bottle red or white wine when we arrived in our room! A remarkable gesture by the staff!! Ate at the restaurant for supper and it was really good. After a great sleep on a comfortable bed had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very nice as well. The crushed tomato dish for the breads was incredible!! Would definitely stay here again!
Absoluty gorgeous authentic and unique castle hotel. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. The unique location of the hotel also makes it rather challenging to reach: The approach is through a variety of narrow streets and up a steep and not very wide cliffside road: not for the faint hearted and not for those with mobility issues as also there is large amount of stairs. The staff means well, is super friendly and moves heaven and earth for you. Breakfast was served on the table which added to the charm. Dinner was disappointing to say the least and needs quite some work: for now I would recommend to get some cold cuts and cheese, pick a nice bottle of wine and enjoy the charming setting. I would definitely return and recommend with these notions though.
We decided to visit this place, because normally when we have a long weekend, we go to Barcelona or Madrid, but this time we wanted to try something different. We arrive at the airport at 22:00 h and took the car to Somaen, in the middle of the night you can find several mini restaurants and gas stations where you can eat. We arrived to the hotel at 2 am, called and someone came to receive us, he was a bit sleepy but very smily! When we saw our room we were tired and it was ok, but when we woke up, I was amazed with the views, the decoration and the furniture. I went to have breakfast alone (as my boyfriend was too tired to go) and the restaurant was AMAZING! nice decoration, nice atmosphere and breakfast was good (cheese, ham, very good croissants and cake, fresh orange juice and coffee). I asked if I could take the breakfast to my boyfriend ( as he did not feel very good) and they said ok. The gardens, the views, the service and every detail is wonderful (even the keychains where very different). There is on the third floor of hte mainbuilding a nice saloon where you can enjoy with family and friends. We visited Medinaceli which is 20 min. away and we had a great day there! All in all a perfect long weekend and of cour I would recommend toanyone who looks for a different holiday in a town where ust 20 people live.…
We have stayed just one night but the hotel appeared as an unexpected beautiful oasis situated in a canyon in the old road between Madrid and Zaragoza (that nowadays has almost no traffic, but it is very near from the way out of the the high-way). The hotel is installed in a well recovered Muslim castle and in the nearby custom house which controlled the medieval road. We had a very warm and friendly reception and an excellent lunch and dinner. We will return for sure!
