“Central, cosy, clean, cheap - outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Hostal Plaza Mayor was an absolute delight. I stayed here for three nights last week and it was such a friendly establishment in a fantastic, central location just off the Plaza Mayor. Was met and greeted by super helpful Oscar on arrival who spoke fluent English but the other two members of staff were equally welcoming. My clean, warm and comfortable room was on the top floor, had a single bed with en suite bathroom, fridge for storing food and drinks, free WiFi included and even a small balcony to sit out on – all for £28 per night, what a bargain! The room was at the back of the hotel so I never heard any street noise or late night carousing. Salamanca is the most elegant city in Spain (IMO) and I would go back in a moment – lots of beautiful buildings, interesting museums and plenty of affordable restaurants and cafes. There’s lots of buzz about the place as it is a youthful university city with plenty of shops and a good public transport system. I toured Spain for ten days and this was most definitely the highlight for me. Thanks to Oscar and his staff at the Hostal Plaza Mayor for a wonderful three days – wish I could have stayed longer. Next time……….

The Hotel Plaza Mayor (Salamanca) is the perfect hotel--right off the plaza, immaculate, quiet, comfortable, and very reasonably priced. The icing on the cake is the extremely helpful staff (i.e. Fran y Oscar) who eagerly offer great advice on restaurants and tourist sites--both in Salamanca and further afield. As a solo traveler, their advice was very much appreciated and contributed to my having a fantastic experience in Salamanca. I wish I could have stayed longer--and plan on returning soon!

my only negative remark would be about the steps up to the reception desk; a bit hard for an old lady, but I managed it with a bit of help with my bag. Then there is a lift to the upper floors. The staff is very helpful. My bathroom had such a small shower I could hardly squeeze in, but it worked just fine. Bed was very comfortable and there are plenty of blankets. (I like to sleep with the windows open.) the central heating is excellent. Its location is five star-- a few minutes' walk to any of the sights.

The location was fantastic, the price amazing. Best part was wonderful Oscar, who carried my bags, drew directions on the map, recommended his favorite places and was really really a friendly and professional host. Great place to stay. The bed was fine, shower good, no noise (which is amazing since it is just outside the Plaza -- I was in a single room towards the back).

Lots of steps, but that's minor. It's really a GREAT place to stay, in a very special city. It's on the Southwest corner of the plaza, just outside (I think I tried every exit before I found it, even after asking). Easy walk from the train station.

It's slap bang in the middle of town, walk out the door and your in the thick of it. No noise problems during the night. Staff friendly & helpful, rooms clean and comfortable.
They also have secure motorcycle parking @ 7.5 euro a night,
I'd use this place again.

Room Tip: No complaints about any we used.

This is a small place 15 m. from the Plaza( Best one in Spain) in front of a fantastic place for jamon iberico ( try the sandwiches). Staff as said from others is really nice and helpful. We had a room in the inside courtyard but no noise. Parking is a problem, so reserve one with the Hostal( garage 50 m. away) We loved it.
