Overview

A 16th-century convent-turned-hotel in Salamanca, just a 10-minute walk from the city's central square

The Lowdown

Heritage, culture and gastronomy have helped Salamanca to become a UNESCO World Heritage site and foodie favourite. Head to its floodlit churches and university, which dates back to the 13th century and is the oldest in Spain, and you’ll be following in the footsteps of explorers Christopher Columbus and Hernán Cortés. To do a little discovering of your own here, you’ll find the five-star Hotel Hospes Palacio de San Esteban as the perfect base.
Making its home in the former convent of San Esteban, this 16th-century building has plenty of historic charm too. Original thick stone walls conceal 51 guestrooms that unite the old and new under exposed beams and Egyptian cotton sheets. Local Salamanca ingredients and classic Castilian dishes are also served up under the vaulted ceilings with cathedral and cloister views here.

Beautiful structure
Reviewed 3 days ago

After reading all of the reviews, we could not wait for our stay at this hotel. When we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty and authenticity of the hotel. It is located in a great place where you can walk to the city in a short amount of time. The hotel reception is nice and welcoming with free water and snacks. The room is also very clean and spacious. However, we had a nasty smell coming from our bathroom, which was quite strong when we would first enter the room. Also, we found it strange that the bathroom door had no lock. We had a small problem where our door lock ran out of battery, so we were locked out for a very short amount of time. The receptionist at the time was extremely professional and was trying his best to contact everyone and anyone just to open the door for us. We also found it a bit uncomfortable that every time we wanted to make a tea, we had to move the entire electrical tray to the small bedside table. It would be good to have a socket nearby.

A hotel that well deserves its 5 star rating
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed at the Hospes Palacio de San Esteban in October. The hotel is easy to find by GPS and has convenient parking. The staff is very attentive, friendly, and helpful. This is a hotel that truly deserves its 5 star rating. The hotel is set on the grounds of the Convent of San Esteban, and a part of the hotel is incorporated into one of the historic buildings of the convent. Our room, which was a Junior Suite, was one such of these rooms. One could feel the history of the building in our room. The walls were of thick stone and concrete, and the ceiling comprised of heavy wooden beams supporting a wood ceiling. There were berries and water awaiting our arrival. The bathroom was posh. Breakfast was great, and they have a very nice, attractive restaurant to dine at. The hotel is a short walk from most of the tourist sites of Salamanca, as well as some fine restaurants. I can't compliment the hotel staff and laud the facilities enough. We had a great time there.

Beautiful and modern accommodations with peaceful courtyard garden view
Reviewed 1 month ago

We were very pleased with our hotel choice in Salamanca. The location is very convenient for walking to the major sights in lovely Salamanca. The front staff was extremely helpful and friendly from start to finish. The modern rooms are spacious and spotless. The bathroom was very large and beautifully tiled. The bed was every comfortable. Our room, though a little dark, had a view of the courtyard gardens. We appreciated that after having been outside most of the day amongst all the people. A bonus for us was a nice tray of sweet upon arrival to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There is a restaurant on site, which we did not try, but that is convenient.
Also, the pool on the grounds looked lovely, and it was nice to sit outside near it for a bit. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.
