Good sized room, very good location, very good value for the money. Strongly recommend. Nothing to say here!
Fabulous location, right besides the Plaza Mayor.
great central location Not a four star hotel but clean good rooms.
Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. Very loud noise of bird scarer at night. However, sound insulation of room was very good.
Superb location for visiting Salamanca: a covered passage from the hotel door leads directly to Plaza Mayor. Room doors are poorly sound isolated: noise in the corridor is heard inside the room.
Excellent location, spotlessly clean. Superb breakfast buffet No outlook. No control over temperature in room - boiling hot & air conditioning & fan had no effect. Told only option was to open window
Location was Great Cost of Breakfast, Staff not so friendly
Very close to Plaza Mayor. Great location. Breakfast was ok but a bit simple. Nice room. Parking was a few streets over but was valet-parking so no need to try hair-raising parking which was nice.
Helpful staff. Great value for money breakfast. Help to locate garage with which hotel has discount agreement.
The room we stayed in had a lovely bathroom and we liked the swimming pool The location
The location with a balcony over the plaza. The breakfast was wonderful. The bed - very uncomfortable The bathroom door - it's not sealed off from the bedroom and is transparent. Not much space to move around the bed.
The location was great! It could of been better. I booked 2 rooms. The room for 2 people was much bigger than the room for 3 people.
Very informal and friendly. the semi transparent door in the bathroom is bizarre and not ideal in a family room
Close to the restaurants, shops and historical centre
Central Location, great breakfast room no views from bedroom window
the hotel was dated and there was not really anything that would apeal to familys this is more of a hotel for older people and I am glad that we only stayed one night
This hotel is not a good hotel. It has 4 stars but the quality of furniture is terrible. There are only portable TV's too. If you want to have a peaceful night then dont use this hotel. It is located on a busy center street and at the weekends it is impossible to sleep because the town is full of students who get drunk and make so much noise at 2 3 4 5 o'clock in the morning. Stay away from this hotel. It is a ripoff. See my above comment
Sightseeing in Salamanca, visiting a friends No
The cleanliness of the room was excellent. The staff were, for the most part helpful. The focus was so strong on groups that there is no place for the individual to even have a glass of wine. This is not good for the individual traveloer new to the country.
location was excellent the walls were very thin, could hear the people next door. noisy.
Nicely placed, magnificent interior, quiet, very reasonable price Very poor security, no reasonable safety facilities, no way to be sure about your belongings (money, passports, jewelry, electronics). During our 5-day stay our room and a few neighboring rooms were robbed in the evening time and a lot of valuable things disappeared. Hotel has no responsibility for the things even that you keep in the safety-deposit box. The box is very small (e.g. no way to put laptop there) has a prehistoric lock which you have to ask at the reception. Right on the vault you find the note that the hotel has no responsibility for the things you put there. So, the hotel Monterray is an extremely nice place if you do not care about your things and has not more than 20 Euros in your pocket.
Hotel very clean and central, rooms slightly small
The location is perfect, nearby underground parking and nice decoration. The internet access was only possible in a hotel computer in the reception. This is not appropriate for a 4 stars hotel... The noise between rooms and the corridor was very bad.
We needed an iron machine urgently and although at first the receptionist said the rooms didn't have an iron and he wasn't sure whether he could get one, at the end he was very efficient and got us an iron in less than 10 minutes. The first reaction from the staff when we asked for the iron machine was "No, the rooms don't have an iron machine". Only after insisting we got a "I'll check with the governor but not sure if I can help" and only after I insisted, I got a positive answer and a fast reaction. The elevator was broken.The hotel and rooms looked old (but clean). We were put in a room with two beds without being asked, instead of a double bed. The price was too high compared with the quality.
Breakfast was excellent. Room was quiet. Good location. No iron in room.
The hotel was lovely. The Spanish are not in general very warm towards visitors, the staff was no exception but polite and attentive to my requests. The location is amazing, views lovely and I would stay there again if given the opportunity!
I got a room with a great view of the San Sebastian Church. The hotel is very lovely and rooms are comfortable. The location is simply great! Must stay if you are at Salamanca.
For double room price we had junior suit with jacuzzi :)
The location near the historical centre, the room size and the exterior of the building The posture and lack of simpaty of the staff at the reception desk. The dificult acess to the hotel car parking and the expensive price of it.
The entrance and the foyer are beautiful! Despite of the hot weather, it was pleasently cool in the hotel - not freezing cold like they do it in some other countries. The rooms have a nice marble/wood floor and a high ceiling. The bathroom was big enough and very clean. It was a real four star hotel experience in a beautiful building. The terrace (where people smoke) is in the front of the hotel and the rooms on that side suffer from smoke coming in. Of course, it's only occasional, but it is annoying if you are not a smoker and you keep your window open in the morning. One other small thing is the church bells that ring every morning at 8 am, so not convinient for the late sleepers.
Freshly cooked breakfast
Location No breakfast included. Parking charge (15 euros)
The power of the AC was not very good , it took for ever to have a good temperature in the room. In any case we had a great time in the hotel. Thanks
El entorno, céntrico y ausente de cualquier ruido. Relación calidad-precio excelente. Tiene todo tipo de menaje de cocina, por lo que puedes hacerte el desayuno o cualquier tipo de comida a cualquier hora si no apetece salir. La última planta un poco ruidosa a la hora del desayuno debido a la afluencia clientes subiendo y el sonido de los platos.
location in the old town center, excellent breakfast, friendly personal room was very nice but very small
The historic building, its situation in the old part of Salamanca, the helpfulness of the staff.
Very good rooms. An elegant ancient setting with all modern comforts. Very proportion quality/price. A little calm hotel with a good and kind hotel staff. Noyhing bad, but if we want to be nitpicking the pc connection isn't so fast...
Very nice and comfortable hotel. Excellent location for the convention center and the old town. Nice rooms with all the facilities. I think the actual rate of the hotel should be three to four stars. Breakfast not always on time.
very good location, nice design touch to the rooms & hotel. the rate also included breakfast that was quite ok.
The staff was very nice; the room was very clean and comfortable; and the hotel was near the main street (Calle Zamora and the Gran Via). Can´t beat this place for the price.
Great location good value Very small spaces
In the center of the city. Extremely small rooms.
though it takes half an hour to walk to the hotel from the train station, it's near the central bus station. it's quite convenient to get to the plaza mayor and all the sightseeing spots on foot. the staff members are nice & helpful. the room is small but comfortable. the walls arent thick enough and it is quite easy to hear what other guests are up to at night.
Location thin walls, small bathroom.
Right in the centre of town. Excellent check-in and out. Obliging staff. Quite easy to load and unload. Clean and tidy.
Great staff, clean room, but basic tea-making facilities would be good. Nothing, except there were no tea-making facilities.
Some positive things: we had everything in the room we desired (air conditioning, a window to the courtyard, ...). The staff was nice, friendly and helpful, even as we left very early in the morning. The distance to the city center is about 3 minutes, the distance to some good and cheap bars and restaurants about 5 minutes. The nights have been quiet. The room has been really small. The equipment is old but not damaged. The bathroom is only seperated by a folding door. After all everything is pretty narrow. Ok for a stay for one night, but not more. The price, which was similar to the price of a much better Madrid hostal room, is definitely too high.
Very kind, quiet, clean and friendly this hostal, highly recommended. The recepcionist was very helpfull. Excellent location!
Great views from the rooftop terrace, and a fabulous shower make sure your car isnt any larger than a mondeo, or it wont fit in the vehicle lift !
This was an amazing hotel for a great price. It's beautiful and very chic inside. It was also close to everything. We highly recommend it to anybody going to Salamanca!!!
The parking, though it's tight. And the helpful staff. A bit clinical - only one person is on duty.
the ambience difficult to find initially as no sign posting
The hotel was in the sentrum of Salamanca, walkingdistance to all facilities. The hotel is nice, but the sauna and the massageshower in the bathroom was out of order in our room. The television was very small (the smallest i have seen the last 10 year on a hotel room) and it was placed very high on the wall. aprox 1,75 from the floor. The room was big and clean.
The hotel is very near the main attractions and the hotel staff - very helpful! The room was not very big, but there was a comfortable sitting area as well. The furniture is nice and the bed is comfortable. There is a nice terrace on the roof with wonderful view, especially by night, but unfortunatelly it is not used for this value.
Near Centre The road was up outside hotel making it difficult to get to
Very central. Cleanliness excellent This is a new hotel and the sound proofing is poor.
Unusually beautiful hotel room (nice colours, nice furniture) with a feel-good atmosphere (i.e. not as anonymous as many); very good bed; free + reliable internet connection; friendly staff. Shower water rather cold (1st and 3rd morning).After reporting it the first morning, I thought the problem would be solved. This was true the second morning but next day it was again not right. (Later all was okay). Whereas contact noise was usually absent, the sounds of noices and televisions during a busy night made me wonder how it would be on lower floors
Modern room, hot showers, spacious bathroom.
The location was very good, close enough to plaza mayor. The staff was helpfull and friendly, though they couldn't speak English too well. The room was nicely decored, but reminded me a little of a student room. A little extra decoration would help a lot. The breakfast was rather poor: we got 2 little cakes, coffee or chocolate milk, and a little bottle of orange juice. I think it costed 2 euro per person, but was included in the price. But that made you go to the supermarket afterwards, because I thought it was too little to start the day. I think that the rooms should be more soundproof, you heard everything from the bathroom next to you.. The entrance was also not visible enough from the street, the rooms are in an appartment complex, and you only knew that there also was a hotel in it, by a little name plate next to the door.
Excellent value for money. Clean basic rooms and new furniture.
The accommodation was clean and modern. Very convenient for the centre of town. The staff were amazing - very friendly and helpful.
it is really a small hostel, not a hotel, the room was nice, clean and quiet, the location is good, right in the centre and it was not expensive either. shared bathroom
The staff was nice and the room modern and clean. The breakfastroom is not separated, It's right at the entrance and the walls of the rooms are very thin. So, if you like to go out and want to sleep in the morning (longer than 8), I suggest not to stay in this hotel. The people talking in front of your door and the noise of somebody doing dishes really drives you crazy! We only slept 2.5 hours because of that! I guess room no. 1, 2 and 3 are the worst in this case...
staff was very nice and helpfull, breakfast good enough to get you started, very nice rooms the hotel is great but they could do something about the isolation, you can hear a bit too much of your neighbour!
The staff was really knowledgeable and friendly.
Right in the center of the city and felt safe going back to hotel at night. Staff was very very friendly!
the central location, a good price,quiet,due to time of year. good facilities in room,old building but rooms refurbished to a good standard. parkiing a problem! no parking,had to park outside city and a 10 min walk to hostel.
Clean, nice appointments, simple. I only use the hotel to sleep in, not for the wow factor. walls not sound proofed from room to room location. I can sleep through most noise, so this wasnt a problem, but someone who might be a light sleeper, might be disappointed.
Extremely friendly staff, immaculately clean room, and all in all a super comfortable hostal. Great bathroom as well with a nice big bath. Very central location in a magnificent city. Street can get very noisy at night with bars and clubs nearby, but this is not the fault of the hostal, and this is a problem you will find at practically all accomodation in the centre of Salamanca. Just bring earplugs if this bothers you and you'll be fine!
Simplicity, comfort, central location. Cold water, but I think that was being mended
Would recommended very good clean good location and friendly staff
My main object was to try out the journey from Sintra and Lisbon by public transport to Valladolid the following day, and to overnight in Salamanca. It is very ideal in proximity to Plaza Mayor, and at half past midnight when the train gets in, the taxi got me within 5 minutes from station to El Toboso.
Perfect location, beautiful view of the city, total comfort, very clean could be better lighting to read in bed
Stunning setting, nice and inspiring surroundings and hotel itself imitating medieval design, while having all modern facilities, all this makes stay in hotel unforgettable!
Views were spectacular (at extra cost but worth it). Location was very convenient. Secure basement parking available. Staff could have been warmer. Hotel lacked a little atmosphere but may have been time of year. Parking was expensive and couldn't be pre-booked because of limited space.
Very high Standard and spacious family room. The restaurant is a 'must try', very delicious food. The breakfast does not reflect the standard of the hotel, and the coffeeis not the best. If the room are excellent value, a 12.50 Euro parking fee for a night and 4.50 Euro + VAT for internet access is quite an excess.
Lovely spacious rooms close to all the attractions
Very convenient location, easy access to car park, easy to find, good breakfast.
Brilliant view (we were given a corner room, with views over the cathedral, other churches). Very nice and large room. Front of hotel did not look like the impression given on the site
Fantastic location, nice rooms and friendly staff.Great 21st celebrations for my daughter Alex and all the family. No telephone numbers in the gym enabling us to contact the reception.
The views. Steep parking fee!
Location The airco was a bit noisy, car park places very narrow, places limited
Good location near Plaza Mayor The hotel was very difficult to locate via my satnav as it was located in a pedestrianised street. They advertised parking but I could not take this up as I had to park my car and walk to find the hotel
Good and well equipped room in prime location. No
excellent location we were on the first floor which could be a bit noisy at night but the room had a small balcony with a good view
Excellent view to beautiful, Plaza de la Libertad, close to Plaza Mayor, the Cathedral and the University. Pretty large bathroom (compared to other hostals). Everything OK. The cleaning was OK but not perfect.
clean, confortable, excellent value for money. Great location right by the plaza mayor.
helpfulness of staff, cleanliness of rooms, central position, value for money
Location is excellent a few steps away from Plaza Mayor. Although no restaurant on site there are many coffee shops around. Tip for parking: you should reserve a place and it is located on Espoz y Mina street almost corner with Plaza de la Libertad (where Hostal Concejo is). Curtain is filled with graffitti. Note that it looks like a pedestrian street from access at Cuesta del Carmen street. You should park somewhere anyway and get the remote key and parking slot. I hope this helps as we already lost quite some time finding the access. Because of its location and because it is a university town it can be very noisy all night.
Location was great, really just around the corner of Plaza Mayor. Staff wasn't too friendly but very helpful. Room was simple but clean. Location is noisy, especially in the weekend but that's what you can expect in the heart of the city. Not all rooms have a balcony, we stayed in the attic with one window looking towards the sky.
hotel was centrally located in the old city, steps away from the Plaza Mayor. Air conditioned; helpful, friendly staff. Rooms were very clean and modern. Overlooking a pleasant plaza with nice restaurants steps away. None
Close to sites, good air conditioning, bed, and room size with lovely bath amenities Desk staff was rude to indifferent, reserved a double and only got one (instead of twin) after " Fuerte" discussion', no wifi in room
air condition was too loud
Very well located, close to the university and cathedral. Clean and comfortable, this isn't a bad place to stay if you're on a tight budget. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel that didn't have 1 English tv channel. No good for news junkies who want to catch to catch up with the world after a day's sightseeing.
location, staff, the towles, minibar prices, the cosmetics provided, everything was great. breakfast could have been more varied, maybe more hot food and fruit? some of the cleaning staff seemed very miserable - did not respond when i said hola but i can understand this.
Easy access to the city center and not noisy for sleep. Staffs were helpful.
Very convenient location. Lack of parking places in the neighbourhood
excellent location, comfortable room, large bathroom staff hardly speak English, internet free but clumsy, with new login pass required every day
Very well located
great location, friendly staff, full comfort, clean
Much noise from other guests in corridor on both nights until 02:00. Believe staff spoke to people involved on second night.
Good location withe asy walk to city centre. Managed to find parking space nearby which was free. Check in took ages. No alcohol or food rule in the rooms which is not mentioned before booking. Bathroom too small.
As a hostal it was very good and reception was excellent, Good value basic no
Great location, very pleasant and helpful staff, Wi-Fi included in price noisy from the street side and from the corridor as well as from other bathrooms, no air-conditioning
Very friendly, English-speaking staff. The owner was willing to get up and let me in at 2:30 in the morning (late night arrival by bus from Galicia). Good location in a safe and convenient area near the bus station and on the edge of the historical center, walking distance to all the main sights. No breakfast, but a bar/cafe/restaurant two blocks to the left, on the same side of the main street, past the hospital serves a good hot breakfast most mornings. Other small restaurants near the hotel in the direction of the historical center.
very close to the center of the town (10 minutes on foot) - don't have a a car parking, but you have to leave you car in the street or in a car silos near the hostal; - bad smell in the bathroom.
Hostal in very good location and owner very attentive. Rooms are basic but have everything required. Location and price makes it a good stop if you are not looking for frills.
The manager and his wife were very pleasant and helpful. They kept giving my son sweets when he went down to use the laptop in reception. There was no air conditioning but if you shutter the windows carefully and open up the windows in the evening it's fine. A lock on the bathroom door would have been good.
Location between bus station and sites was great. Noise, noise and more noise!
well located and very good ratio quality/price, clean room and comfortable enough for short stay but it depends on the room, we were lucky the bathroom would need to be renovated and more accesories available for the customer as well as creating public toilets
central hostel, not to fare from bus station furniture and matrasses a bit old and and very small bathroom
