Extremadura caters to all budgets, though most hotels fall in the midrange bracket. Accommodation ranges from simple hostales (budget hotels) and albergues (hostels) to elegant boutique hotels and lavish paradores (luxurious state-owned hotels, many in historic buildings).

Rural areas are dominated by attractive casas rurales (village or farmstead accommodation), self-catering apartments and campsites. Extremadura also has its own hospedería line of upmarket (though not-quite-parador standard) hotels inside historic buildings.
