  • Architecturally and historically there is a lot written about the square, read up about it but then just sit in the square at the end of the day with a drink and the supper( after 2030 of course) and ...  more »

  • 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
