Room at the Hospedería Monfragüe
For the faithful readers of this blog you will know that our traveling baggage is based on going around the world with a backpack and sleeping in the cheapest place we found along the way. I am not used to sleeping in high quality hotels and my impressions are probably going to be excessive compared to any other user who is accustomed to this type of hotel standards. If you look in this article for reasons to choose among the best accommodations in Extremadura it is very likely that you are not in the right place. I warn you because I personally loved the Monfragüe hostel but I don't have much experience in hotels of that quality!
The rooms are spacious and one of the things that surprised me the most is that you not only have free Wi-Fi but also offer a keyboard and a mouse connected to a plasma TV for easy internet access. You must request a device at the reception to activate it since more than one client puts it in the suitcase as if it were another ammenity plus.
He breakfast In the Monfragüe lodge, it offers a succulent buffet of local products - sausages, bread, cheeses, etc. - as well as fruit and cereals. During the two nights I stayed at the hotel I always wanted to have more time to enjoy breakfast properly.

In hotel has a Pub next to the reception as well as a terrace in front of the bar that we do not use since January in Monfragüe is not suitable for compulsive smokers.
From the same bar, stairs descend to a lower floor where there is a convention room.
He restaurant It offers an interesting menu and during the last night we stayed at the hotel we took advantage of it for a wonderful dinner. In the restaurant you will see people staying in the same hostel as well as customers who come only for dinner from nearby towns such as Plasencia or Trujillo. Considering that the establishment is considerably separated from the large population centers I found it much more frequented than I imagined. The prices for two-course dinner and desserts start at approximately 40 euros.
Prices to spend the night in the Monfragüe lodge, they are around 70 euros double in low season and 130 euros in high season.
