  • One of the most beautiful squares in Spain. Worth the visit, day and night ... lively streets around, with shops, restaurant and bars

  • A square, symmetrical, beautiful, full of terraces, with lively but quiet. The balconies and porches are precious.

  • 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.
