This hotel was built on what was once the Palace of the Marquee de la Romana and a grammar school.
It’s a splendid architectural work from the 16th century that’s connected with the old 15th-century St. John the Baptist Hospital. Nowadays, it’s a Parador. The entire complex has historically been a place of learning for grammar, medicine, and surgery.
From the windows, you can almost touch the magnificent Sanctuary of Guadalupe and the square with all its shops and restaurants is only a few feet away.
The rooms are a bit too monastical and austere and they could use a touch of modernity and happiness. The cleanliness is perfect and everything was well-organized. The staff was also very, very friendly.
This is found in the Monastery of Guadalupe, an authentic oasis of peace and quiet in a pristine natural environment. It’s a small 47-room hotel that’s a real treat, especially the gorgeous Gothic cloister. From the Hospedería, you have access to the Mudéjar cloister and the Basilica.
