Hilton has announced the signing of a 16th century palace property, following a franchise agreement with Scipion Real Estate and Panoram Hotel Management. It joins 18 trading hotels in Hilton’s Spanish portfolio.
Expected to open in 2024, Palacio de Godoy Cáceres, Curio Collection by Hilton will boast 72 rooms, including 8 suites. Its restaurant and bar will serve up local cuisine and drinks and offer indoor and alfresco seating.
The hotel’s additional amenities will include meeting and events spaces, a spa, a fitness centre, an indoor pool, a 1,000 m² garden, and a rooftop bar.
The property will inhabit a former palace built by a returning conquistador in the 16th century. It is located in the old town of Cáceres, which is surrounded by a host of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The town is famed for its blend of architectural sights from different cultures and periods.
The signing marks the continued development of Curio Collection by Hilton hotels in historic European buildings.
With more than 60 hotels trading or under development in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Curio Collection by Hilton is a rapidly growing brand currently operating in 16 markets in the region. With recent and upcoming openings in Lisbon, Madrid, and Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton is continuing to expand across the Iberian Peninsula, and we look forward to entering a new region of Spain with this hugely popular brand. Occupying a 16th century former palace, Palacio de Godoy Cáceres, Curio Collection by Hilton, will be a spectacular hotel and we look forward to welcoming guests in 2024.

We are pleased to partner with Hilton, to introduce their first hotel in Cáceres, located in the city’s old town. We look forward to opening this hotel, following a complete restauration of the one-of-a-kind 16th century palace built by a Conquistador of the Inca Empire, including a garden designed by the renowned garden designer Alvaro de la Rosa, centred around the concept of Conquistador Francisco Godoy’s return from Peru.
