We stayed two nights on a two-week guided tour. The rooms was very comfortable and the staff was helpful. Very good value, I believe. Our favorite moment was the late night walk through the city, only a short few blocks from our hotel. Salamanca is on the Via De Santiago and would be a nice stop for hikers.

This is a comfortable hotel, with a relatively decent breakfast, big clean rooms, free wifi. I had a room with a balcony overlooking the square which was nice, though not big enough to lounge about on. The location is great...just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of the admittedly small city. The hotel is a converted old building,... More

A nice hotel in a great location in Salamanca. Recently visited and enjoyed our 1 night in Salamanca. The staff was very helpful and accomadating and if you are going to Salamanca - call ahead and reserve room 312. The room has incredible views of the Cathedral.

A typical, well-appointed, luxury city centre hotel - reassuring or characterless depending on your point of view. We did have a lovely room with outstanding view of the university & cathedral. Room service was efficient but very limited at certain times of the day such as 7.30pm. Breakfast much as anticipated for self service buffet style - plastic ham and... More

The Abba Fonseca is a quiet comfortable hotel with lovely views close to all city sights. The room was spacious with a clean and well appointed bathroom. Although the recommended rooms with views of the cathedrals, 212 and 312, were not available we had a pleasant room, 311, with a view of nesting storks on an adjoining historical building. Good...

In town for a 3-week course at the University of Salamanca, I stayed at the Abba Fonseca as a base of operations. It's ideally located across the street from the Hospederia Fonseca where classes are held, and a short walk from the Plaza Mayor and everything else in the old city center. The room is adequate size, clean and well... More

This hotel had a decent room in a nice quiet area of town. The location is wonderful. Just a five minute walk from Plaza Mayor. It was nice to be able to look out our window and see the old and new cathedrals. The room was clean, simple and spacious. However, the people at the reception did not seem very... More

Being a fan of the Abba hotel chain we decided to stay at the Abba Fonseca after our two nights at the Abba Burgos. The Abba Fonseca is an ideally situated hotel with superb views. Having read previous reviews on Tripadvisors we requested either Room 212 or 312. We were very fortunate as we were allocated Room 212 for our... More

Lovely hotel, comfortable room, excellent view overlooking Salamanca and its grand buildings. Eat in-house for your evening meals and enjoy the menu-of-the-day - excellent value with wine included - good value for your money. Hotel is in the old part of the city, just on the border of the new part of the city. Felt safe and comfortable here.

We had a birthday to celebrate, and asked for a room with a view - and we got one, so breath-taking that we spent one evening in the room just looking out! There was no extra price for this, either. The room was large and comfy. A nice side is also the Jacuzzi/sauna after a long walks in town. For... More
