“A lovely building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed 1 night in mid September and very much enjoyed our stay. The bar served snacks which saved us waiting for the restaurant to open at 8.30 pm. The town square was only 500 meters away and had plenty of bars and eateries. Comments have been made as to the parking lift, glad we didn't take the Bentley! We had a lovely room on the north side however somewhat dark due to small windows. Booking in staff efficient. Check out staff rather less so.
Do not try and find this hotel after dark!

Beautiful 15-17th century convent turned into Parador. Built against the city walls of the historic center of Plasencia. Parking accessible by elevator (for the car, that is). Comfortable rooms, cafeteria/bar serving a decent gin and tonic, and will also serve at the pool, if you ask. For the nighthawks, there is a late night bar in the vaulted cellar. Recommended.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Wasn't too busy when we stayed, but I'm not sure that being busy would make it any different. The rooms, service and breakfast were very good, but the big bonus was the resident's night bar. This little gem of a place was situated in a vaulted cellar where staff attended to you personally. A gin and tonic became a work of art in a cosy, luxury space. Fantastic find.

Full of charm, great nooks and crannies, atmosphere. Front desk is reasonably efficient and helpful. Terrific location. The night bar is fantastic -- lie on a mattress and sip a cocktail... don't miss it! The pool was welcome even though it has that motel afterthought feel to it. Rooms are only OK, nothing special (standard twin, at least), but the overall experience more than made up for it.

The hotel is in a beautiful old building that backs onto the city walls. Storks nest on the roof while the sun shines down on the small but perfect pool.
Our twin room was fantastic with a terracotta tiled floor, thick walls and double entrance doors to keep it cool. There was a separate seating area to the sleeping area. Always clean.
Staff very helpful. Bar staff friendly. Can't fault the paradores.

I was very pleased with my stay at Parador de Plasencia. The building is absolutely amazing and it location in the inner old town makes it a perfect place to stay at. The hotel is really calm and relaxing. I enjoyed my room as well that was really spacious and with a nice view over the more modern part of the city.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

We stayed in this hotel last year and have just stayed there for another 4 days. The hotel building is still beautiful but, better still, the levels of staff satisfaction and concomitant customer service levels have noticeably improved in he last year. I don't know if this is due to better management, better staff training or fear of losing a job in the somewhat stretched Spanish economic situation but whichever it is it made the stay even better this year than last. Prices for bar drinks seem quite competitive when compared to the bars in the Plaza in Plasencia. Breakfast is very good and rooms are nice. The garage parking is entertaining for claustrophobics as it involves a trip in a lift, in the car, so be warned.
