Parador Hotel Caceres
Caceres has one of the best concentrations of historic buildings in
Spain. As a result of this, it has been declared a World Heritage Site
One of the best times to see the town is at night when the defensive walls and buildings are lit with artificial light - a good enough reason to stay in the Parador of Caceres.
The Parador Caceres itself is in the building which was the Palace of Torreoraz. It was built in the 14th century for Diego Garcia de Ulloa, a knight of the Order of Santiago and has the family coat of arms displayed.
The building is Gothic in style and incorporates an old slender tower. In the building, is an inner courtyard which is paved and has a small cloister around it.
The interior has been converted to the luxury expected of a Parador but retains the atmosphere and many of the original pieces. Of particular note is the original mantelpiece in the living room.
Stone or wooden floors, wood beams and stylish furniture make for attractive
living rooms. The bedrooms are decorated in soft cream shades and are spacious
While in the area, visit the Virgen de la Montana sanctuary. Also the prehistoric paintings of Maltravieso Cave and contrast this in the Vostell Museum of Modern Art in Malpartida de Caceres.
Local festivals include the "Festival of fire of San Jorge" held on April 23rd and the ”romerias” of Montana and Santa Lucia on the first and second Sundays of May.
Also in May is held the Womad Festival of World Music.
The Caceres Parador has twenty eight twin bedded rooms, eight rooms with a double bed, one suite and one bedroom with easy access, all of which have a private bathroom.
The rooms all have a telephone, cable television, safe and mini bar.
There is heating and air conditioning throughout the hotel. The Parador has a restaurant and a bar, piped music, currency exchange, lift and parking facilities (without security and limited places), garden and cable TV. A conference room is also available.

|The least interesting Parador we have stayed in. OK breakfast. Ordinary room - could have been any mainstream hotel chain - very dark with a window facing the wall across the narrow old-city alley. Empty feeling in the few public spaces, stuffy smell in the corridor. Slow, not service-minded reception staff. - We forgot a jacket in the room. It took several weeks until we received it, and they charged us 85€ for that service. In all, disappointing and poor value for money.|

|We had a wonderful two nights at this Parador in early September. Caceres old town is beautiful, and peaceful, to wander around. Our room was large, cool and comfortable. Breakfasts, in the garden, were a delight as was the evening meal we had. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We loved the mix of old building and modern, minimal interior refurbishment However, as has been said in a previous comment, it is a real shame that there is nowhere to sit outside during the day/early evening to have a drink, read a book etc. The the indoors, glassed in cafe is not a pleasant space to sit - feels rather like a goldfish bowl. Perhaps some of the tables in the garden could be available all day?|

|We found the hotel easily thanks to the signage, but we would have appreciated a note on our confirmation on how to raise the bollards that guard the entrance to the old city. Our arrival was pleasant. As we selected a cheaper room we were happy with the decoration and comfort level, but not having a window with a view, any view, (window was high up and provided light only) was disappointing. Location and proximity to Caceres town was good. We have stayed in many Paradores and we were disappointed that there was no outside area to enjoy a drink at the end of the day - no terrace or balcony. The internal Cafe area smelt of cigarettes, the TV was on and it was not a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a drink. It would be nice if the restaurant area garden was open all day for this purpose. Breakfast both in the restaurant and in the garden was good - very helpful lady in the breakfast room. We loved staying in th old city of Caceres.|

|We throughtly enjoyed our night at this beautiful Parador. We arrived a little earlier in the afternoon so we were fortunate enough to get a good parking spot. The parking accomodates about six cars side by side and another five or six parallel parked six inxhes from a wall. We were in the renovated side and the large room and bathroom were decorated in a very contempory style more like something you would find in an upscale North American hotel. All of the furnishings and materials were top quality. The staff were very accomodating and the breakfast was extensive and well prepared. We did stay for dinner on the terrace but found it somewhat disappointing particularly based on the price. One dinner was sent back as it was conservatively only cool rather than hot. None were particularly hot and appeared to have been precooked and warmed up prior to serving. The one meal was recooked(?) but served after the rest of us (three people) had finished their dinner. An apology was given but no offer to adjust the price. This was definitely not first class. We would certainly seek another retaurant in future visites.|
