The hotel is nice, clean, very well located, lots of restaurants and bars on the streets nearby. Staff is reasonably nice, but do not help with the bags. The breakfast is weak.. There are other possibilities for breakfast right nearby. The baby crib was a wooden one - good. Good pillows and mattrass. There is a parking for 15 € fee, difficult to use, as usual in Spanish cities.
Average accommodations. Nothing special either good or bad. Slept well and hotel was near restaurants and stores. Staff was average. Room was clean and water for shower was hot. We were traveling with a group of 40 people so dinner was included. Food was eatable but not great.
We stayed here only one night while on a Gate 1 Travel tour. The hotel was clean and in a good neighborhood with a very easy walk into the old section of Salamanca. The staff was helpful and made change of larger Euro bills without a problem. Wifi was ok and the breakfast was just ok.
We had biked (yes bicycles!) 80km the morning we arrived at the hotel. We were hoping for a helping hand with our luggage (at least) once we had parked our bicycles down in the parking lot. Two men were working behind the desk and were uninterested in helping us with the baggage or even opening the front door (which we were struggling with, while each carrying 5 awkward bike bags) We were obviously struggling with our panniers (bike bags) and neither of them budged from behind the desk to assist us. They were not helping other guests at that moment, so why they did not offer to help was baffling. I had throbbing knee pain from the ride and was also needing to cool down, so I returned down to the front desk to request some ice (the cleaning staff said I had to ask downstairs), and they replied with "The cafeteria is closed until 6:30". Overall, the daytime front desk need more training on courtesy. And install an automatic front door! How one (even able-bodied bike tourists like us) is supposed to open the front door with multiple bags in hand is unknown to me. Otherwise, the room itself we are staying in, is clean and comfortable. No complaints regarding that.
It is a charming hotel within walking distances from the cathedral and the square. Plenty of fruit stands and bistros nearby. The staff are charming and the room was spacious and cleaning. We stayed at the first floor (one level up). We were worried about the street noises. Either we were too tired or the bed was too comfortable, in any case, we had a great night sleep.
We had two rooms for two couples. Location 3.5 stars. Lobby area 4 stars. Staff 4.5 stars. Room 3 stars. Bedding 4 stars. Breakfast 3.5 stars. We were on a Gate1 bus tour. Hotel is 20-minute walk to prime tourist area. Satisfied with hotel.
From the minute you enter under the turquoise chandelier and your eyes feast on all the 'quirky' items of 'objects' dotted around the place it's difficult not too smile. It's well situated for exploring Salamanca, it's very clean and the breakfasts were very good too. However, I did find the receptionist not very welcoming at all. Not one smile.
The hotel has a good location and it is very clean. The room is spacious and has good beds and sheets, the bathroom is good too. The only thing is the colors and decorations.. black curtains, and things that looked cheapy.. really you can stay here but I think there are more places that would be better to the eye. Breakfast is so so..
we stayed here for one night as part of a Leger tour. The hotel entrance is just of a busy main road and it was a struggle for our coach. The welcome at reception was warm and friendly. The main reception areas are a little tired and decorated in a mock grecian style with a selection of statues and chandeliers.The lifts were a little small and sometimes the lighting on the stairs was a bit hit and miss. The room was spacious and clean and for some reason had a spa bath (although this did not work). We were served a set evening meal, which was fine and then had drinks in the bar - locals were playing cards in the bar so it must be ok with them. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice. Very handy for the city (which is beautiful and well worth a visit). Would not have a problem staying here again.
A different hotel. Very comfortable . Old fashioned but pleasant. Location excellent. Good buffet style breakfast with good spread. Car parking in basement. Grecian in design . Pleasant helpful staff. Jacuzzi in bathrooms along with excellent bathroom.
