    Our opinion

    An historical step back in time, Parador de Plasencia is a beautiful hotel with modern amenities.

    Hotel description

    Parador de Plasencia is a four star hotel found in the heart of Plasencia’s old town opposite the late 15th Century Palace of the Marques de Mirabel. An historical building in its own right, the hotel occupies the former 15th Century Convent de Santo Domingo and offers guests an unmistakable taste of historic luxury. Additions to the building throughout the centuries have left the hotel with a beautiful late-Gothic cloister with high, vaulted ceilings and an 18th Century portico entrance, giving an impressive grandeur to the hotel. Inside, the decoration is an indulgent balance of contemporary and historical touches which is most cleverly portrayed in the 66 rooms and suites. The hotel’s spacious accommodation has intricately carved wooden beds and warm coloured furnishing which give a sense of inviting cosiness. Many rooms benefit from a terrace or period fireplace. Throughout the hotel comfortable furniture in modern designs are upholstered with damask patterns on silk velvets, whilst low level candelabras create a romantic and atmospheric effect. A highlight of the hotel is its restaurant, adorned with blue and white 16th Century tiles. Enjoy an authentic taste of local gastronomy, showing the best of Plasencia’s cuisine from partridge stews, lamb with honey and locally grown cherries and figs. An outdoor terrace can be found in the garden and is lit at night for evening dining. Modern touches such as a jacuzzi and gym equipment are a welcome addition to the hotel whilst the outdoor pool is an ideal area to relax from the comfort of a sun lounger. Parador de Plasencia’s subtle modern touches and historical ambience create the perfect balance, ideal after days discovering Plasencia’s history and culture.
