  • Magnificent. This alone is worth the trip to Salamanca. must see in the evening with dinner or a beer. 
  • The square is full of history and buildings that have to look carefully, look at the shields thing up the porches, highlight the environment there there continuously, is the center of meeting in Salamanca.Las terraces, restaurants and their lids. The penalty is that coincided with the book fair, and the panorama was not perfect for the booths, but on the other hand, very interesting books which are esponian.

  • Spectacular. Reminds me of Madrid but without the burden of the big city. Very nice to walk around and drink in its terraces

  • The views were amazing but the staff was a little bit anoying. They were asking you so many cuestions that you coluldnt go to the room acurrately
  • Muy buen servicio
  • Lugar inmejorable, en plena Plaza Mayor. Muy recomendable!! Vistas muy bonitas
  • Fantastic location right by the Plaza, right in the middle of nightlife action. I personally loved the energy, but if you don't like late-night noise this may not be the place for you. Nice, clean rooms and a very friendly staff made this hostal great lodging for me and if I find myself in Salamanca again, this will be my first choice. For less-able folks, I'd like to add that there is no elevator! I had to carry my luggage up nearly 2 flights of stairs. Granted, I had a lot (studying abroad) but take warning if you can't do so.
  • Muy bien todo.
