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.
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.
location noise in hallways
very tasteful contemporary decor ; excellent comfort
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.
Location was good, small walk into town 10-15 mins. Free mini bar is good. Excellent lounge areas. WIFI was good in public areas.
Value for money. Beautiful property - very unique.
breakfast doesn't correspond to a 5stars hotel
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.
It was quite central, and the room was gorgeous the parking is expensive
the hotel is excellent - if you can affortd it or if you happen to get a good deal nothing. it was perfect
Beautiful and comfortable
Excelent location. Very confortable. Better directions
This hotel is stunning. We loved everything about it.
Convenient location and excellent staff. Not too keen on the restaurant menu - it hadn't changed on our return almost 3 weeks later!
Good value Take earplugs!
Good location, excellent rooms, great service Everything was fine
Enjoyed breakfast and overall ambience of a centrally located hotel. Value for money. Sofa bed not particularly comfortable in Room 13
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.
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.
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.
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 location so near to the Plaza Mayor is excellent, and the staff were very helpful whenever we needed assistance.
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.
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!
Great location in old city NO NON-SMOKING ROOMS. TRYED 2 ROOMS WITH HEAVY CIGARETTE SMELL
Nice clean big rooms. the staff was fantastic, very eager to help. Location, right next to plaza and rua mayor was superb.
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.
Freshly cooked breakfast
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.
Location No breakfast included. Parking charge (15 euros)
Breakfast was excellent. Room was quiet. Good location. No iron in room.
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.
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
For double room price we had junior suit with jacuzzi :)
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!
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
Excellent hotel. In the middle of the old city. Fair prices but expensive parking place. Very gentile personnel.
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.
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.
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.
room is nice and clean. parking lot is small.
Beautiful room. Great Location Staff were not particularly friendly. Efficient but not especially friendly.
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.
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!
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.
The rooms and common spaces are beatiful and extremely comfortable. You feel spoiled. Very relaxing, quiet and pleasant.Very well located also.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
i liked the friendly people and the ideal location, for sure a good hotel to recommend
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.
Wireless. The Food
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
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.
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!
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.)
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.
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.
Perfect hotel !!! Nice location and very good price for its given service and the quality standard of the hotel!! no complains...
We had a fantastic view of the Old and New Cathedrals from our room. An excellent hotel. Well located, comfortable, clean, and aesthetically pleasing.
service, room size and no garage facilities
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 combination of old and new
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.
Convenient for town centre No parking at hotel. Lack of proper pillows - only bolster,
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.
View of the Cathedral from our room is excellent. Strong smell from the restaurant & street noise.
Great staff and excellent rooms
The rooms were charming and the hosts could not have been nicer or more helpful. Everything was fine
The hotel is beautiful, great location, staff friendly and very helpful
Friendly personal service, lovely rooms, good breakfast. They need, and recognize, Internet service in the rooms.
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.
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.
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
Helpfulness and friendliness of staff No coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms
Best small hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the last twenty years. Having to leave.
Warm, very clean, lovely room with lamps and tv. Young man at front desk was WONDERFUL-the epitome of customer service! Located a stone's throw away from Plaza Mayor, which was fantastic at night. Hit two places to have tapas and wine-prices-great Not really-maybe a bit of a challenge to locate
Great location and fairly priced with helpful staff. No.
Right in the center of the city and felt safe going back to hotel at night. Staff was very very friendly!
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!
Would recommended very good clean good location and friendly staff
Simplicity, comfort, central location. Cold water, but I think that was being mended
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.
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.
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.
location in the old town center, excellent breakfast, friendly personal room was very nice but very small
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 good location, nice design touch to the rooms & hotel. the rate also included breakfast that was quite ok.
The historic building, its situation in the old part of Salamanca, the helpfulness of the staff.
very good location, very friendly stuff and a cute small hotel room with everything you need. we had not the best view.
A simple yet clean and comfortable hotel with welcoming staff, well placed in central location for sight seeing..
Is a very clean place, very well situated.
Short location to plaza major. construction side in front of hotel
Everything was great - the location, the room, the staff - would stay here again.
The location was really great. All restaurants and local attractions are within walking distance.
Hosteria Casa Vallejo was in a great location. The room was very comfortable, and had been recently refurbished.
The sincerity of the efforts to please by the couple who own it; the high-quality tapas for breakfast. The comfortable & clean & modern room and shower and sound insulation from corridor. Superb value and excellently central situation. Certainly recommend to anyone. Noise from the sanitation during the night, perhaps;
Excellent location, close to the Plaza Mayor
Very clean and very good value for money Facing a construction site so can be noisy during the day and on a fri and w/e, tourists at and coing from Plaza Mayor could be noisy until early mornings
