Pros: Location and how big is the room was.
Location: The location was great. About 5-10 min walk to University of Salamanca, lots of restaurants and the shell house. Once there easy to walk anywhere!
Everyone in the hotel was polite and nice. Very attentive. Room was large and comfortable for sharing. Large bathroom as well. Really enjoyed my stay. It was walking distance to everything in Salamanca. And if you get too tired to walk, a cab ride is always 10€ or less. Highly recommend it.

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: As above
Cons: As above
Location: A short walk to both Cathedrals and great local bars and restaurants. River, with Roman bridge, also within walking distance. Main road for shops too.
Difficult to find, could do with map directions. Once there, no convenient local parking to allow for initial reception negotiations. English speaking staff friendly and helpful. Rooms good size, modern and comfortable. Decent bathroom, spoilt by showerhead vertical adjustment friction being useless----something which should not have been missed by maintenance staff. Overall terrific value for less than £50 through Expedia.
