very tasteful contemporary decor ; excellent comfort
Value for money. Beautiful property - very unique.
The hotel building is absolutely fantastic having kept the authenticity of the original convent yet providing spacious comfortable rooms and beautiful furnishings. the staff on the dest were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome and special. The location is perfect for visiting Salamanca. Only complaint is the service at breakfast - staff were sour and not able (apparently) to cater to people who wanted just a simple breakfast, not the complete buffet.
The location for visiting the historic buildings was excellent. Secure covered parking but only for a dozen cars. The decor is stunning and is a beautifully restored convent. Quiet location. One of the best rooms I have stayed in. Difficult to find and not well signposted in the city. Reception and restaurant staffs English was very limited and led to much confusion over booking a table for dinner. The menu was very limited with some items 'off the menu' the food was terrible and uninteresting and highly priced.I have rarely had a good meal in Spanish hotels. The car car charge was €10.00 per night which I thought was too high.
This is a first class hotel in every way.My wife and I were impressed from the time we walked in until the time we left.Our intention is to go back there again next year.Many thanks to all involved.
breakfast doesn't correspond to a 5stars hotel
location noise in hallways
Location was good, small walk into town 10-15 mins. Free mini bar is good. Excellent lounge areas. WIFI was good in public areas.
In comparison with the other hotels in this catagory in Salamanca, the AC Palacio de San Esteban is the best. Its location is both conveinent for the city and beautifully peaceful, with extraordinary views from the bedrooms. Will definately return.
Beautiful and comfortable
Convenient location and excellent staff. Not too keen on the restaurant menu - it hadn't changed on our return almost 3 weeks later!
Good location, excellent rooms, great service Everything was fine
It was quite central, and the room was gorgeous the parking is expensive
Good value Take earplugs!
The staff is pleasant but could not improve our situation (see below) even though the hotel seemed largely empty. Several months ahead of time we requested a quiet room with 2 beds. Upon arrival we were given a room on the second floor, fronting the street and with trickling water pipes and other bathroom sounds being offensive.
Overall I enjoyed my stay a lot. The reception was helpful and the breakfast was great. But, there were only one thing to be improved at this hotel, the super slow wireless network (charged). I could barely check my emails, and it was impossible to serf the net for more travel info.
the hotel is excellent - if you can affortd it or if you happen to get a good deal nothing. it was perfect
This hotel is stunning. We loved everything about it.
Excelent location. Very confortable. Better directions
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
Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. Very loud noise of bird scarer at night. However, sound insulation of room was very good.
Good sized room, very good location, very good value for the money. Strongly recommend. Nothing to say here!
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.
Fabulous location, right besides the Plaza Mayor.
great central location Not a four star hotel but clean good rooms.
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.
Helpful staff. Great value for money breakfast. Help to locate garage with which hotel has discount agreement.
Location was Great Cost of Breakfast, Staff not so friendly
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the location was incredibly convenient, just a hop, skip and jump from the Plaza Mayor. Very easy to go visit sites and come back to the hotel room for a rest.The rooms are large and spacious. Fairly quiet, considering how close to the Plaza and the student population. Everything was great with the exception of the bed, which was two singles rather than the double we had hoped for.
It was in the perfect location, very near plaza major. The room was spacious by european standards I have experienced in the past. Loved having a chair and loveseat so we could visit without sitting on the bed! The staff spoke very little english making it just a bit difficult but manageable.
Great location in old city NO NON-SMOKING ROOMS. TRYED 2 ROOMS WITH HEAVY CIGARETTE SMELL
I had read previous reviews complaining about the staff. I have to say my stay was just about perfect, and the staff was a big part of this. As an American with minimal Spanish, they were extremely helpful, patient, and courteous. And they go above and beyond more than any staff I've seen in luxury American hotels. At one point I asked the lady at the front desk for towels. She raced up 2 flights of stairs to get them for me immediately...all with a smile. The gentleman at the front desk at night was also very courteous, as he had to let my girlfriend (now fiance) and I come in and out the front door during the late hours of clubbing. I should also mention the room was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was perfectly delicious!
The room was luxurious for the price, large space and included a couch and a small kitchen with refrigerator. The view was wonderful, looking through the old glass decorative bay. Historic breakfast room.
Enjoyed breakfast and overall ambience of a centrally located hotel. Value for money. Sofa bed not particularly comfortable in Room 13
The location so near to the Plaza Mayor is excellent, and the staff were very helpful whenever we needed assistance.
Hotel staff was so friendly and accomodating. Room was perfect - clean and comfortable. Location could not be beat - quiet but 1/2 block from Plaza Mayor. Breakfast - so much to choose from and the room is absolutely beautiful, with music playing in the background. You'll love it!
Nice clean big rooms. the staff was fantastic, very eager to help. Location, right next to plaza and rua mayor was superb.
The staff was extremely helpful, would go out of their way. Excellent location, less than 2 minute walk to the Plaza Mayor. Nope, everything was excellent. Better than expected.
Location No breakfast included. Parking charge (15 euros)
For double room price we had junior suit with jacuzzi :)
Breakfast was excellent. Room was quiet. Good location. No iron in room.
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 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!
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
Freshly cooked breakfast
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.
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.
Excellent location of the hotel. There simply is no better place to start your exploration of all the beauties of Salamanca. We stayed three nights at the hotel in Salamanca and loved every moment of it.
The location, within the historical centre of Salamanca, could not be better. Also, the hotel is very recent, so everthing is looking nice. The air conditioning system is way too noisy, so it was difficult to sleep. I think we could not turn it down, which didn't help.
Excellent hotel. In the middle of the old city. Fair prices but expensive parking place. Very gentile personnel.
Beautiful room. Great Location Staff were not particularly friendly. Efficient but not especially friendly.
Hotel location right alongside cathedral was perfect. Room was modern and spacious and contrasted wonderfully with old surrounding. Staff was professional and helpful. Value was terriffic. Not hotel's fault, but loud all-night revelers as this is a university town.
LocaTION is excellent Difficult to find using gps
room is nice and clean. parking lot is small.
Beautiful room, so nicely designed and decorated -- felt like we were in an upscale apartment! You could access internet for free in the lobby, but there was no place to plug in or set a computer, and you had to keep putting in a new code every 30 minutes.
The rooms and common spaces are beatiful and extremely comfortable. You feel spoiled. Very relaxing, quiet and pleasant.Very well located also.
From the moment you enter the hotel you are able to unwind aqnd know that you can relax in a beatutiful space with friendly and attentive staff. No, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here
New hotel, very good facilities, bose sound system in the room, very nice bathroom with jacuzi (little smal, but very nice!), drinks in minibar are included. Breakfast was superb!
We liked everything. Staff is very friendly and service minded. They provide parking service for free, so it is OK that parking is not available on site. Breakfast is great, room was huge (we got upgraded) and awesame! Great hotel for a romantic getaway with your own spa in the bathroom. Hotel is quite new so the spa/massage service was not available. No restaurant in the hotel. Not a big problem though since hotel is well located in the city, but it does limit the room service options.
The facilities and grounds are amazing. The staff was also first class. Front entry driveway should be marked better. It really looks like a walkway.
an excellent hotel with superb accommodation, well located and very good staff.
good location, great service, beautiful place, good breakfast. did not get the room which was promised.
Everything was great. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food was delicous, and plentiful. The location was perfect! The only downfall is that the floors are all wood and the sound in the hallway seems to travel.
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.
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.
Lovely spacious rooms close to all the attractions
Perfect location, beautiful view of the city, total comfort, very clean could be better lighting to read in bed
Very convenient location, easy access to car park, easy to find, good breakfast.
Location The airco was a bit noisy, car park places very narrow, places limited
Stunning setting, nice and inspiring surroundings and hotel itself imitating medieval design, while having all modern facilities, all this makes stay in hotel unforgettable!
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
The views. Steep parking fee!
The breakfast included in the hotel rate (what it is not normal in Spain). Availability of a private garage. Excelent location. Nice view of the city.
Great location for walking into city, but easy in/out with car. Very well kept: staff pleasant/helpful but unobtrusive. Beautiful courtyard,but outdoor pool not yet open (Spring). Nothing!
Friendliness of staff and their care to ensure we enjoyed our stay We didn't want to leave!
Good parking arrangements, good bed, spacious room, excellent breakfast for 7.5, pleasant obliging staff, easy and direct 10 minute walk to the Old Town.
The location is excellent in that it is approached by modern streets as opposed to old narrow lanes and yet it is but a brief walk across the river to the old town. My room was very spacious and had a deep balcony which probably gives good shade in the summer. The breakfast was the best I've had at a hotel in Spain. The receptionist's English was not as good as some but much better than my Spanish. Free on street parking alongside the hotel seemed more or less guaranteed. My GPS got a little confused in the last 100 mtrs because the one way system seems to have been changed but the hotel was so close at that stage and I had the streets to myself so no problem. An excellent hotel. The heating came on in the evening and was too hot but the staff very quickly resolved the problem.
Quality and value of the room.This was our 4th night at the hotel en route from Portugal. Access to the hotel and from the hotel in the city is v. good
Good located, big room, clean. No music at the breakfats buffet.
The quietness Staff did not speak English very well
Ideal location, short walk to town centre, quiet, clean and wonderfully helpful staff Nothing bad aboutthe place at all
Friendiliness of the staff
The location is very good only a few minutes walking from the centre. It is also well located to arrive by car. The hotel parking was expensive so we parked at another parking lot a few metres from the hotel and it was cheaper. The room is quite comfortable but nothing special. During the weekend the breakfast starts only at 9am and I thought it was too late.
Room comfort & cleanliness
atmosphere and small and local reception staff knew little english but then they are in Spain
Very efficient checking-in process. All staff were very helpful and thankfully spoke English. Good room and good location. No
comfort and flexibility to change rooms
Quiet room away from street. it was warm and comfortable at this time of year ,mid october Cost of secure car parking and poor breakfast.coach party eat everything and what was left was unappetising
Old towels, dirty curtains
Location is good.
Very friendly staff, convenient location. Horribly noisy.
Wireless. The Food
Free parking for our car, right in the middle of Salamanca. The room was excellent, but quite small with virtually no place to store your luggage.
Great location within a block of Plaza Mayor plus the opportunity to park in front of the hotel for free if they have an open parking spot.
We did enjoy seeing the sites od the old part of Sevilla We had no sleep from 1030 pm until 530am kept awake by hordes of youngsters yelling, screaming and singing as they passed the hotel
Well-positioned hotel in the centre of everything Lack of internet facilities in hotel - overseas travellers cannot bring their own computers yet need to check emails.Disruption from next-door building site is going to continue for some time as project only just starting.
It was a business meeting, but met friends there too. This was an ideal location for both purposes and the axcommodation was first class. The rooms were spotless every day: staff were very friendly. I would go back here at any opportunity without hesitation. Breakfast! Better value (and quality) to be had in local restaurants. Also it is a noisy location, near the student trail from Plaza Mayor to their favourite pubs & clubs. But this, in truth was a minor blip in an otherwise excellent stay.
very friendly staff, excellent location 100 m from Plaza Mayor very strong smell of cigarettes in the room, although I have asked for a no-smoking room. Noise at night (motor bikes etc.)
It is right next to Plaza Mayor, and it is an excellent value-for-money solution. Initially, the room we were given, and the one after that, were vividly smelling of cigarette, but the third one was great.
Plaza del Angel is right in the city center, it is only a few steps away from Plaza Mayor, which is great for the first time visitors to the city. The room was very comfortable, clean and very beautifully decorated. and the staff was very helpful!
i liked the friendly people and the ideal location, for sure a good hotel to recommend
the ambience difficult to find initially as no sign posting
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 !
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
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.
Very central. Cleanliness excellent This is a new hotel and the sound proofing is poor.
The parking, though it's tight. And the helpful staff. A bit clinical - only one person is on duty.
Near Centre The road was up outside hotel making it difficult to get to
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.
Modern room, hot showers, spacious bathroom.
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!!!
We had a fantastic view of the Old and New Cathedrals from our room. An excellent hotel. Well located, comfortable, clean, and aesthetically pleasing.
Perfect hotel !!! Nice location and very good price for its given service and the quality standard of the hotel!! no complains...
Convenient for town centre No parking at hotel. Lack of proper pillows - only bolster,
Perfect location for visiting Salamanca, interesting architectural lobby built around ancient ruins of a church. It would be really great if they had a computer available for guests to use internet!
Beautiful hotel in an excellent location for walking to the historic area. Our room had a great view of the cathedral, but despite the double paned windows was quite noisy due to the traffic on the street below.
Beautiful combination of old and new
Nice rooms, good breakfast and clean rooms. Great view of the cathedral. Wonderful location. Our rooms were on the 1st floor and a little noisy from the hotel restaurant.
Good location close to the historical centre, nice well appointed room with big window and a nice view to the cathedral (ask for cathedral view). Comfortable beds and everything clean. Noise from the street could be a problem.
service, room size and no garage facilities
View of the Cathedral from our room is excellent. Strong smell from the restaurant & street noise.
Great staff and excellent rooms
Friendly personal service, lovely rooms, good breakfast. They need, and recognize, Internet service in the rooms.
Helpfulness and friendliness of staff No coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms
The rooms were charming and the hosts could not have been nicer or more helpful. Everything was fine
Hotel is beautifully maintained and staff was extremely helpful. For tourists travelling by car the location is perfect because it is located on a main road but is only a few steps from the histroric center. Nothing.
The hotel is beautiful, great location, staff friendly and very helpful
Access to all the facilities in Salamanca was excellent, whilst the situation of the hotel was extremely quiet. The room was like staying in someone's guest suite, far removed from many other faceless city hotel rooms. The staff were most obliging and helpful, qhich added to our marvellous stay in Salamanca. Nothing whatsoever
Best small hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the last twenty years. Having to leave.
The excellent service from the staff and the proximity to the sittes of interest in Salamanca.
The Hotel Rector is extremely comfortable and the service and attention to detail excellent. It is ideally placed to explore the city of Salamanca.
