  • Without a doubt one of the more beautiful of Spain, with a beautiful night lighting. Very crowded at all hours, in which you can find at night playing some Salamanca tuna.

  • In a university city par excellence, the Plaza Mayor of Salamanca is the point of confluence of all the streets, all interests of all trivia, all the appetites and all clicks possible. It is mandatory to sit in one of the many terraces of the Plaza, enjoy a sangria and tapas, observe, delighted, life running. Nuestros hermanos are masters in the art of enjoying the moments. There's that imitate in this posture.

  • Enjoyed the rooms, WiFi was decent, pet friendly, great location. Parking was quite close and luggage can be dropped off at the door. Roof pool was a nice idea but too small to swim in probably ok to take very young kids to splash around. Good city scape views from the roof.
  • Fabulous, quiet hotel in central Salamanca, 2 steps away from the Plaza Mayor and main sights. Bright, comfortable modern rooms and friendly, efficient service. Would definitely return to this location.
  • Fantastic location, good amenities and brilliant beds.
  • Nice hotel in the centre.
  • Great place for a late afternoon drink
