...in the crown of the beautiful city of Salamanca. Nestled at the foot of the hill from which rise a host of domes and spires and towers of the cathedrals and university and churches, this small but charming hotel is absolutely ideal for an overnight stop. Two things might appear to be drawbacks: first, it is on a busy road,... More

This is as good as it gets- perfect friendly and very professional service (after a long drive a welcome tea and cakes arranged with no fuss) , a great location, lovely city, parking directly underneath the hotel, lovely room and a great breakfast. To top it all a couple of bottles of water given to us just as we set... More

A wonderful stay, unfortunately short. Spacious room and extremely comfortable bed. Staff were very very friendly and we had a lovely breakfast. A must stopover in Spain. Salamanca is a beautiful city. Not crowded with tourists and beautiful to walk in. Souvenirs are of good quality, I especially loved the frog.

We stayed here for 2 nights.The hotel was very clean and in a good location.Rooms were nice and bed very comfortable.Staff were very friendly and helpful.Breakfast was ok.Only thing it lacked was outside space and this would have been nice considering how hot it gets in salmanca in June but that is not the hotels fault:-)

This hotel is near perfect! Great location, attractive public rooms, comfortable and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, attentive service, good breakfasts and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Well done to all concerned!

A wonderful hotel which well deserves all the rave reviews on TA. Our bedroom was a very good size and well appointed with an excellent bathroom. Lovely Bulgari toiletries including a very good sized bar of soap (unlike the miniature bars often provided), and the shower gel was replenished each day, (it's a pet grouse of mine that hotels don't...

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
