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.
How to Get There
We visited Salamanca in February, and found this Hotel on Trip Advisor.....what a good choice. Perfect location, and within walking distance of everything you would wish to visit in this lovely City.
There was a warm feeling from the minute we arrived- Paulino at the front desk made us feel very welcome, explained our location vis a vis sights, restaurants etc etc.
Part of the Hospes Group, this hotel is housed in a 16th century convent building on the edge of the old town- all notable sites within 10 mins walk.
Our room was well appointed and quiet, ouerlooking the courtyard. Lovely...we'll be back.
The hotel is located in an old convent and has been beautifully decorated and restored. Staff were friendly and helpful and we found the room and bathroom to be large and luxurious. Old features like the inner wood shutters on windows are preserved and we had a view of a local steeple with cranes nesting. Nestled in the old town, all the sights are a few minutes away, as are many restaurants and shops. We were there in Winter but if you were there in the summer I am sure the pool and lovely outside area for drinks would be amazing!
Im a bit late with this as it over a year since we visited, but its snowing outside and my mind is wandering to pasted holidays and much needed sunshine. My wife and I drove to Marbella from Newcastle upon tyne in August 2017 to celebrate my 60th and after leaving the ferry at Bilbao headed to Salamanca for two night . First with sat nav we found the hotel with no bother at all.
Its an impressive building staff were lovely check in happened very quickly & we soon found our ground floor room looking out over lovely garden area. The room was lovely a bit rustic but modern at the same time . Lovely modern bathroom and immaculately clean. Its position couldn't be better a few minuets walk and you are in the most beautiful city . Thankfully on recommendation from friends we had booked two night & could have stayed longer Salamanca is a must visit place & I can't wait to go back.
Also parking was not a problem at the hotel.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. The hotel is a converted monastery with very thick walls and a wonderful view from our room. The service and food in the restaurant was excellent. The front desk people were all so welcoming and accommodating . I only wish we had been able to stay longer. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again. It is within walking distance of the city center.
Stayed overnight and the hotel did not disappoint at all. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet and choice of eggs were excellent. However, it did not feel much like a five star hotel as they claim to be. It felt more like a four stars. Nonetheless, the room and service were good. The location is a plus since you can walk to all the landmarks
