We are quite probably Plasencia's best located hotel, which, according to some, is the best located city in Extremadura. At Hotel Alfonso VIII, we enjoy a privileged location of being right in the heart of Plasencia's historic quarter and 2 minutes on foot to the Plaza Mayor.
We are surrounded by the city's major attractions, such as its cathedrals, city walls, the Santo Domingo Convent, the medieval aqueduct, the Mirabel Palace and Doctor Trujillo Palace. We are also very close to the Jerte River, where you can admire various bridges of great historical importance, as well as the commercial centre and university grounds of Plasencia. The Parque de la Isla, the city's green lung with its natural warm swimming pool and many landscaped open spaces for taking a stroll or playing sport, is found just 150 metres from the hotel.
We are located halfway between the Renfe train station and the bus station, which are both located 10 minutes away. We have an indoor car park located in front of the hotel.
We have easy, direct access to motorways and the surrounding roads. This hotel is the smart option for those wishing to take excursions and visit the nearby valleys and Plasencia's places of interest: the Jerte Valley, the Vera Valley, the Ambroz Valley, the Monfragüe National Park, Las Hurdes, the Sierra de Gata, the Yuste Monastery or the Vía de la Plata.
