A very nice hostel. Josef took us on a guided tour of the park (extra) and it was well worth it, with great views of the vultures and eagles. A very nice room with a simple breakfast affair, and a chance to have a tea or coffee during the day. A kettle would be useful though. Situated in a quiet...

Nice and comfortabel rooms (we had two because we were staying quit long and the room we want was booked before us) good and clean bathrooms. Seems like we were sleeping in the clouds every night, so soft and comfortabel were the beds. Rooms are cleaned regular and towels are changed often enough. Location is the right place to discover...

We stayed at Casa Babel in the Spring of 2014 and when we decided to revisit Extremadura for some winter birdwatching it was easy to choose to stay here again. We were not disappointed and Jose, as always, went out of his way to make our stay memorable. We'll be back to this wonderful area and will certainly stay at...

This was our second stay at Casa Babel and it did not disappoint. If you are looking for something in a quiet village within easy reach of Monfrague National Park, 20 minutes to the historic town of Trujillo on some of the best roads in Europe, look no further. It is not a hotel but a house with 4 bedrooms,...
