This hotel is absolutely amazing and lives up to all the hype. Check in is flawless and the gentlemen at the front desk couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. The rooms - oh wow. The bed is super comfortable, with amazing pillows. Nice big bottle of water and a small package of cookies to greet you. Coffee and tea in the room and full amenities in refrigerator, if you care to go that route. The bathroom is huge and very nice, with both a tub and a shower. The location is very quiet which is a big plus - Spain can be hard to sleep in depending on hotel location due to the night culture. It is an easy walk to Plaza Mayor and all of the attractions of Salamanca.

Palacio de San Esteban is located in a former monastery in the central part of Salamanca…a city not to be missed if you have time to spend in Spain. It’s about a 2.5 hour pleasant train ride from Madrid. Retrofitting a hotel into a historic building is always a test of creativity and ingenuity, but they did a fine job here. While our room was not large, it had a beautiful view of the cathedral and was quite comfortable. The bathroom was a good size, but had a tub/shower which is always froth with danger. Outside of France, where stars are taken more seriously, I would have to agree this is not a five star hotel, but it is a very fine hotel and probably one of the best in Salamanca. The staff were enormously warm and generous with their time; their restaurant recommendations were spot on. The breakfast was excellent and located in a beautiful high arched ceiling in the basement, but actually on the ground floor because of the land slopes away. Definitely, would stay here again.

I was shocked.when my husband told me this was five star hotel, as it seemed to be pretty much like any regular hotel i am used to staying in. Nothing special, and actually 3 things that were decidedly bad. I get that it is in an old building, and that is part of the charm, but the trip to the room is annoying. 2 separate elevators. They put us in an upgraded room, with views to the cathedral, at the end of the hallway, next to the staff elevator and cleaning closet, so noise. The bathroom has one of those fancy translucent doors that seems to be the defining point of a boutique hotel. Besides the lack of intimacy, this type of door means you cant use the bathroom without waking everyone up with the light. The room has a chemical cinnamon smell. If you are sensitive to smells, you know this is instant headache. We left the windows open to air it out, but the cleaners closed them and then sprayed (? Or it came in with the heat?) and the smell was stronger than ever. The location is good, and parking is nice, but i wouldn't say this was a great place to stay.

Beautiful, luxurious, historic hotel in an old palace - adjacent to the old town section of Salamanca. Our suite was large, beautifully furnished and comfortable. The only thing we lacked was a view.

We’ve stayed at the Palacio San Esteban several times and it’s always dependable: great location, amenities and service with enormous rooms and stunning views over the cathedral. Dog-friendly public spaces include a wonderful terrace in warmer months to enjoy a glass or two. Lots of parking.

Very central location first of all. All relevant monuments walking distance. It’s an old palace , refurbished with high end taste. We stayed at a suite, for a day, and it was very pleasant. The local team is very friendly and making a genuine effort for you to feel well. Local team Suggested a very good restaurant and made reservations for me. Breakfast is in a very nice environment and is good, with many choice. Hot plates offered in menu and rest in buffet. Offers parking and vallet.. Only small downside is that any noise in corridor are very high inside rooms. I highly recommend it . Thanks to all for making our time there superb .

We only spent one night in Salamanca, but when we checked into the hotel I wished we were staying longer. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and had a lot of character, with wood beam ceilings. The bathroom was huge, with great natural light from the window, lots of counter space, and two showers - a shower stall (a bit dark and cramped) and one in the tub. (I probably appreciated this bathroom more because we had just come from Segovia where we had a narrow, dark bathroom at the Eurostars Convento Capucchinos!) Service was excellent; when we checked in, they assisted with parking the car and offered a city map and dinner recommendations before we even had to ask. The location is good, on the edge of the old town. Easy to drive to and within walking distance of key sights.

Salamanca is a must-see city in my book. Not only is the cathedral one of the most spectacular I have ever seen but the Plaza Major reminds me of St Marks square in Venice only smaller. The hotel is a nice 4 star, I would not give it 5. However, the views are amazing. The breakfast is fine but not worth 24 Euro if you do not get included with room. It is very clean with ample 15 Euro a night parking. I would recommend to friends.

This hotel rates itself as five stars. It is very good with the exception of the attitude of some of the check-in staff. They appear to regard the hotel’s clientele as prey; offering them unwanted services with the objective of soliciting tips. We parked our hire car in a recognised bay but they insisted on valet parking it elsewhere. I think not, I am responsible for any damage. The pressure continued inside, they insisted on taking our luggage to the room. I was equally insistent in stating this was not necessary. The situation rapidly deteriorated into a confrontation before they backed off. As a result for the next three days we were ignored. We have just spent two weeks travelling around north western Spain, staying in equally good Paradors and we never experienced such treatment anywhere else. I can only assume that the Management do not pay their staff enough. My background is in operations management working for an international mining company. Accepting tips or gratuities was outlawed over thirty years ago. I suggest that the Management of this hotel follow suit.

We stayed at this hotel originally because it is part of the Marriot chain and we are titanium members. This is how we got introdued to the hotel chain but liked the hotel concept and service so much that we stayed in other hotels in the chain as well. The Palacio de San Esteban is in a great location and we had views of the Monastario from our room. Room was not large but beautifully set up and it did have a bathtub which I appreaciated. The specail thing about all these hotels is the great staff who help you with learning about the city and startegizing on what to see and when. Breakfast was really nice here. We did eat dinner here one night but were not impressed with the quality for the dinner. We really enjoyed the pool and taking a break in the late afternoon after walking everywhere. Would definatley recommend this hotel to others.
