Enjoyed a one night stopover to visit Caceres. Parking is pretty difficult in the old town and there is very limited space at the hotel. It is first come first served. The Paradore is what you expect; grand entrances, hallways and dining areas. The bedrooms are well equipped and comfortable. We had dinner and the standard of the food was excellent. The restaurant was quite empty though (Tuesday in January) but we were a little surprised at the Christmas music still being piped through! Breakfast was a veritable feast.
This being our first time stay in a Parador, we were not sure what to expect. We were very pleased though with our stay and will certainly be staying at Paradors again in the future when visiting Spain. The hotel is located is right in the centre of the old part of Caceres, in a beautiful historical building. The hotel is also quite easy to reach by car, provided that you have good instructions on how to reach it (do not use a navigation system as that may steer you in some difficult, very narrow or even too narrow, streets). The room was very spacious, with a nice sitting area, and also a nice big bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Highlight of the stay was actually the breakfast, which had an excellent and very large selection of local specialties as well as the usual international breakfast items. Probably the best breakfast we have ever had in Spain.
We had an exceptionally nice room with a very much updated bathroom, two sinks with slots for drainage. It was #106 and had a private elevator, as we were the only room it accessed -- I had asked for a quiet room, and think that was the reason we were assigned it. We had a good dinner outside under the canopy. Suckling pig, which was very good.
The fabulous Parador in the old town of Caceres delivers everything that you would hope and expect in terms of situation, welcome, quality of rooms, food and service. By booking through the Parador site you can often get great deals, with discounts for those over the tender age of 55. The parador sends a map and instructions for driving shortly before your arrival, along with warnings not to follow a car's GPS. Please follow these or you will have a drive through impossibly narrow streets that will ruin your day. If you approach the centre from the west there are good yellow signs to the hotel. However, it has only a dozen car-park spaces and these are more often than not full. So the hotel has a good system in place to escort you to an underground garage outside the city walls, for which there is a charge. The hotel has to then escort you whenever you want access to your car, i.e. you can't get into the car-park yourself. This is tedious, but may well be the only sensible solution. The hotel had a re-fit recently which has resulted in quality fittings and decorations throughout, although there is a tendency towards "style over substance", e.g. trendy sloping washbasins. There is an excellent restaurant for an ample buffet breakfast and also for other meals, with a delightful outside area in the warmer months. Overall fabulous - but I'll never forget the drive!
This Parador was formerly a palace and everything about it is superb. Dining on the terrace was a very special experience. We paid €40 for an upgrade and the room was amazing; just a shame that it suffers badly from damp. The air conditioning reduced the mustiness. Despite the damp it was still a very special experience.
We stayed in room 203 which has a lovely high ceiling and is well equipped. Staff were superb from arrival to departure. Parking is best described as "a challenge", do follow the map the Parador sends you to find the parking. When we left we were told to turn left out of the parking for an easy exit but as the sign said turn right we did and regretted it, finding your way out across the medieval city is not for the fainthearted. Restaurant dishes just wonderful (If you get to postres then try the figs in chocolate as they are sublime) and service excellent. Highly recommended.
Not easy to get to by car but well sign posted. Reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and quite. The restaurant does let the side down a little but this one was not too bad. A wonderful place to base one's visit to Caceres.
A beautiful hotel in a beautiful town. However instructions on getting here were vague and sat nav was hopeless. There is not much parking and I would recommend getting here early. That said the man on reception was lovely and took our cases to our room while a lady re-parked the hire car. It is a rambling hotel in an old building, lots of character but no space for a pool. The room was good. Nicest thing was to sit in the shaded garden with a drink. Situation (other than for driving) was excellent in a quiet and interesting area.
The location was superb, right in the middle of the old town & the parking was very easy.The setting was very tranquil & the outside restaurant area appealing. Ideal location for visiting all the monuments and historical buildings.
Could not be in a better location, the room was beautiful and comfortable, we loved every second of our stay. Leave the hotel and you are in the middle ages, turn right and you enter the Plaza Mayor where all the restaurants and tapas bars are. Staff was courteous and attentive, a jewel at a very reasonable price.
