  • Apart from the rip off prices it is a lovely square but the restaurants are out to get you. Very nice setting.  more »
  • Very friendly, full of people having a good, with all the open bars and Christmas decorations. We spend much there and it is worth to observe everything, two and night. You can make pictures precious.

  • It is the main square with splendid palaces around, all arcades: right under the arcades there are historical buildings, shops and refreshment bars from tapas. People gather here for the nightlife.

  • 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.
