“Great place for stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

I stayed here in 1977 and again in May 2013 and was surprised at how little has changed. It has been enlarged, but the welcome and atmosphere are still the same.
The hotel sits on a hill above the town and is only a short walk down to the centre of town but a steep walk back up. The location is perfect for a stopover near to the motorway.
The rooms are quite small and the bathrooms a squeeze but they are perfectly comfortable.
We grazed on tapas rather than having a main meal and they were really superb. Finally, our bills in the morning were very modest and left me feeling that I won't leave it so long before I return.

Good cheap Hostel, I would call it a Hotel. Can walk into the town centre in about 15 minutes, all down hill. breakfast is basic but rooms are good, clean etc. Free parking. the guy at reception spoke some English. The Restaurant is fine and not expensive.
Take your your own kettle a morning cuppa.
Ideal for a overnight stop. Its in the middle of Spain.
Plasencia is a nice town, plenty of shops, good town square with cafes and restaurants. The cathedral is worth a visit

The Hostal Real (at Plasencia, Extremadura Region, Spain), being 2 star rated lodging, first made me hesitate (normally, Spanish 2 star hostals, aren't all good), but this one made me curious enough to check the rooms.
The building was modern enough, totally independent from other buildings (some hostals are part of the building quarters), attractive to sight.
Despite of its not-so-attractive Entrance and Front Desk, our double room was nice and cozy. King size bed, LCD TV on the wall in front of the bed, a helpful living room with a sofa, a table, wardrobe and another tv. The bathroom was modern, spacious, very clean, nice extras, excelent pressure and handy shower. Towels were clean and regular.
As for location, it's a little far from the walled city centre, if you want to go walking, but if you're driving (normally, Plasencia it's a passage city while traveling), it's good enough - quiet and calm area, cheaper than others in city centre, but in a 5 minutes drive.
I paid 54€, breakfast excluded (available at the hostal's cafeteria - 3,50€ each), at the spot. Real value for money. Staff are nice and friendly.
