Parador de Cáceres

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A typical parador with all the charm that comes with experiencing a stay at a converted ancient palace. The guest room's furnidioning is old and tierd, with decor and bathrooms that need a little love and care. Having said that, the kind and helful staff make up for the shortcomings of the guest rooms. Avoid using any of the restaurants in the main Plaza. they are terrible tourist traps. Never use the wifi in any of these restuarants. they are all compromised. my phone was hacked into after a short espresso stop at one. there are a couple of small restaurants right around the corner from the parador with great food an unpretencious staff.

Getting to the hotel may be a challenge (just follow their instructions not your gps) but totally worth it. Caceres is an absolute gem of a town. As it was Palm Sunday, not many buildings were open but its the sort of place you just wander around. Every building is magical, including the parador. There is a great bar in a sunny spot just around the corner (las Claras), and it is a short walk down to the Plaza mayor where you will find loads of tapas bars for dinner. We ate at La Minerva ( had no idea what we were ordering!) and watched 3 Palm Sunday processions go past as the sun set. What could be better? Our room was huge, clean, full of character and had a large modern bathroom with bath. Parking was easy (right outside). We had the best sleep of our trip - totally quiet and dark (shutters). Only disappointment was an overpriced breakfast (20E) though probably reasonable value if you are going to eat a lot - not great if you just want coffee and cereal. Highly recommended.

Excellent location (though it is a bit challenging to get there) on a well kept historic building. The personnel is very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bath are big. The restaurant provides a good dinning experience.

The hotel staff were great, very attentive and gave us great advice on places to visit and taperias to try. The hotel is in the middle of the old town and once you start exploring every corner you turn there's something to see. The room was very modern, not as spacious as some of the other paradors but it was more than enough space for a couple.

No comfortable common area where one could sit and read or play cards. Room has loosey chairs to sit on. Most uncomfortable. We paid Hyatt price and got Holiday Inn (and this is not a slam on HI). HI we get value, but this Parador was way over priced for the comfort and facilities not recieved😬 Location, parking and Bathroom was great also.

We chose the Parador de Caceres over the Parador de Merida for the New Year weekend based on reviews regarding the quality of each Parador and its food. Most of the pros we experienced were food-related. The elaborate multi-course dinners on 30 and 31 December were quite special. While not every dish was a rousing success of what were clearly creative efforts, it would be churlish to be overly critical. And while the included breakfasts were more routine, they were highlighted by cooked-to-order eggs (which were not offered at the Parador de Cuenca that we stayed at the prior two nights). We also managed to find a parking space in the limited parking area behind the parador twice, once on arrival and then on return after an outing to Merida the next day. The front desk staff were friendly and I liked how they spoke Spanish to us slowly and distinctly. So much for the pros. Now for the cons. 1. We had two rooms (one for my wife and me and one for an adult daughter). They were not in keeping with the nature of the building. They were nondescript, much like rooms in 2-3 star chain hotels and they were dark. 2. Every time we exited the rooms there was quite a foul smell in the hall. 3. The wifi did not work well. 4. Before each of the special dinners there was a drinks reception. There was some seating for that, but not enough to accommodate the number of guests. And the first evening, the drinks were not accompanied by anything except nuts and chips. We were sufficiently disappointed that we passed up the drinks reception prior to the New Year's Eve dinner. 5. On 31 December there was a walking tour of Caceres. We seemed to be the only guests who were not Spanish. Our daughter speaks no Spanish and my wife's and my Spanish was not good enough to follow the long explanations of the guide. After the first stop on the tour, I asked for a summary in English. The guide gave us a very brief one. During the rest of the time we remained with the tour, the guide responded to questions we had, but otherwise did not stop to fill us in on all he was telling the others.

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!
