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.

Room Tip: Room 312 has incredible view 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 cheese, everything in little plastic pots for stock control and one elderly mummified fried egg in the steamer. All in all, an efficient city centre accommodation machine. Finally, the garage parking spaces are small - Volvo not very happy.

Room Tip: It's worth paying extra for the view.

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 city signage indicates the location of the hotel but limited parking makes it expensive- 16 euros daily. Breakfast buffet is costly too 14.50 Euro but lots of local options exist.

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 maintained, quiet and warm. The staff is OK, not effusive but unfailingly polite. The bathroom is quite nice - lovely marble, nice deep tub. Overall very comfortable, and I would return without hesitation.

Room Tip: Room 218 is in the back wing, but has a lovely view over the student apartment building next door. I...

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 eager to help. Actually, their facial expressions looked as if they were quite put off by having to answer a few of our simple questions. Would've given them an overall four rating if this was not the case.

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 two night stay. As the other Tripadvisor reviewers state these two rooms have really great rooms and they are indeed the largest we have stayed in too. Lots of windows to peer out of at the magnificent cathedral and other superb buildings, very comfortable beds, a desk for the laptop with the free wi-fi, a flat screen TV, a writing desk and lots more. Lovely friendly staff and very friendly cleaners too. This is a typical Abba hotel and I am pleased I have the Abbavantage Card which builds up points like a Club Card that can be used for discounted breakfasts and parking charges. The Abba Fonseca has a great and secure garage which enable you to simply unload your luggage under cover and take it straight into the hotel. Breakfast is the usual extensive delicacies that Abba do so well although we found them a little pricey and it may be worth considering popping out for breakfast in one of the nearby restaurants. We had evening meal here with was 24Euro including wine and water. A very comfortable restaurant with attentive waiters. Yes we will definitely stay here again when passing and would recommend it to other Tripadvisor travellers.

Room Tip: Rooms 312 and 212 for the best views of Salamanca Cathedral. Speak to the staff, they are there to h...

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the old part of the city and its grand views.
