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
Enjoyed the hotel. Good staff and service, but surprised it's a 5*. Our bathroom was very tight, especially the shower cubicle which was very small. Overall though, pretty good. Pool and garden welcome, but I couldn't access the steps up to pool. Maybe a bit on the expensive side when considering room facilities
On a day trip to Salamanca from the river cruise ship Douro Elegance we were treated to a splendid lunch with flamenco dances at this hotel. The food was excellent as was the entertainment including a superb singer. We had a great time.
Located steps away from Salamanca’s Cathedrals, it is ideally located to visit Salamanca on foot. You will not need a car or take a taxi for sure. Get a superior room if you can, views to the Monastery courtyard.
The Parador in Salamanca is a modern building, this is the building you would have expected it to be in. A very historic building in a quiet location, yet in the heart of Salamanca. Staff, rooms and breakfast were all excellent.
The room is not comfortable . The bathroom very small. And we were happy to see that the hotel has an outdoor pool , it is very hot ( 31 C) but the pool is close. Apparently there is a law in Salamanca that they can not open the pool until June 15th!!! Nobody told us when we booked it. The tourist normally do not know the local rules! Very disappointed .
