As soon as you arrive at Hotel Rector you just know that it will be perfect. Your car is taken away to be parked in the secure garage parking. You are given a complementary map showing the old town of Salamanca and Julian will talk you through the highlights- where to go and what not to miss. The room is... More

This is a lovely hotel in an historic building with views onto the cathedral towers, just a few minutes walk to the historic centre of Salamanca. The hotel is beautifully appointed with lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, very comfortable beds and tasteful decor. The management and staff were all absolutely charming and helpful throughout our 2 night stay. Nothing was too... More

My wife and I loved our quick stay in this hotel just minutes away from the Cathedral and plaza (down the hill near the Roman bridge). The room itself was beautiful with a very comfortable bed and a good shower and bathroom. The staff was helpful, and the views from the hotel were fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel.

Very deserving of it's number 1 position. Immaculately presented hotel with excellent service. We stayed with our 21 month old and were a bit anxious it would not be suitable for a tearaway toddler. Although it is not completely geared up for smaller guests (for example, no highchairs) they made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was lovely, the bedroom very... More

From the moment you arrive and are ushered in by a receptionist from your car, to the moment you leave you feel like you are their honored guest. Yes, pricey..yes,totally worth it. The towels , housecoata and bedding are all luxurious, the beds divine ... One must appreciate the touches that make the difference....the large bar off soap, the bottles... More

This hotel is impeccable. Our deluxe double room had an enormous bed with lovely bed linen. The bathroom was very spacious with 2 sinks & a choice of a bath or walk in shower. The attention to detail is excellent, for example a card left on the bedside table giving details of the weather forecast for the next day. I... More

This small hotel is just outside of the city walls. Our room was fine. Breakfast did not start until 8:00 AM, a late start for us. The staff tried to be helpful. They told us at what time to go to the Convento San Esteban, an important piece of information since entry times are limited. We had difficulty with the... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Spain. Salamanca is a jewel of a city and the Hotel Rector is simply the best! In no other hotel have we felt as good as in this immaculate, comfortable, beautiful and cozy place. We had booked a double deluxe room, and were given a wonderful room facing the magnificent walls of... More

Stayed just last night, for one beautiful evening, in this lovely boutique hotel, set in a well-located mansion just outside the old city's walls. Room and hotel were chockful of special touches with a fine design sensibility throughout. Could go on and on about things we loved in the lobby, the breakfast salon, and our hotel room. Service was excellent... More

As we were driving into Salamanca, we called the Hotel Rector. They immediately gave us simple directions to the hotel's garage & met us at the open door, volunteering to park the car. We were offered our choice of rooms, which were quiet and comfortable - the best bed of our Spain trip. The location is perfect for exploring the... More
