Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The transition from palace to parador has been excellent. We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights. Each time we walked through the hallways we saw something new and interesting. Seating in the parador was a bit modern for its origins but did not detract from the architectural details.

The Palace del Dean Ortega was constructed by Francisco Ortega y Salido, who was the Dean of the Cathedral of Malaga and chaplain of the Holy Chapel of El Salvador. Unfortunately Ortega died before the building was completed. The building was constructed in the middle of the 16th century and the architect was Andres de Vandelvira. The building has a rectangular ground plan with a big central Renaissance patio that has graceful columns. The main door has Doric columns with a lintel and is crowned with the angels that carry the coat of arms of the founder. There are windows in the ground floor of the facade with triangular pediments over them. The windows on the second floor have curved pediments over them. The facade has a very symmetrical look that adds to its beauty. The patio has a mannerist style. The building has been a parador since 1930, with the name of Condestable Davalos Parador Nacional.

Now a Parador Hotel, this is an impressive looking palace in Vazquez Molina Square. Entering through some large period double doors at the top of a flight of steps, you find yourself in aa cloistered courtyard with doors leading to the guest accommodation. In the corner of the courtyard is the hotel restaurant and stairs leading down to the bar and a small courtyard open to the air. The hotel is not full of period furniture and overall the interior is not as impressive as the exterior. The interior of the Vazquez Molina Palace is more appealing.

One in a line of outstanding buildings on this square. Its graceful lines and elegance added to my appreciation of the people, the artists and architects, and the political and financial power that created this and the other 16th century structures in Ubeda's amazing, historic square. It's hard to take it all in at first so it's a good idea to just spend a little time looking at the palace.

This town did not disappoint. It really is beautiful.

The square has a nice little garden at one end and a beautiful church at the other end.

There also aren't so many tourists so it's lovely and peaceful.

Definitely worth visiting.

There is a small car park which is free just before the city center as well which it helpful.

Enjoy walking through historic Ubeda, past the parador, churches, and town hall -- and with views of the Sierra Nevadas in the distance!

This building was started on the instruction of the first Dean to the sepulcher but he died before it was completed. Now a Parador hotel you can visit to see the architecture or have a quiet drink in the marble pillared covered inner courtyard .

What a marvelous place to put a Parador! Fabulous location, interesting to wander in the various social rooms but the plaza as you enter is the jewel. Sit and have a coffee or just enjoy the building. If looking for a good location to enjoy Ubeda Ideal.

We actually stayed in the Parador, otherwise known as the Palace del Dean Ortega. The design is very good. The Renaissance façade goes well with the rest of the buildings in the plaza. Inside there is a beautiful patio filled with tables and chairs for the hotel guests. The building is full of artwork from the past and the patio has very nice ceramic mosaics showing flowers. On the stairs there are two coat of arms and an old statue of the Virgin Mary.
