“If you want to be insulted to your face, this is the place to stay”
Reviewed May 7, 2011

Awful dump. Furnished in a very heavy Castilian style, comfortable only if you have a giant pot belly. But it is the service that will truly appall. Several examples: I needed the hotel cart to move my luggage. There is just one. It was being used by a deliveryman and i had to wait ten minutes. Paying guest vs deliveryman? You can see how low guest service is on the list of management priorities. When I got to the room, neither the minibar fridge nor the internet were working. Moved to another room where the fridge was working but the internet failed. I was told a technician would be by soon. More than an hour later, still nobody. When I complained, I was abused by a woman at the desk. I won't go into the particulars of the abuse but I don't think Jews are too welcome in this part of Spain (I have a very Jewish surname). Perhaps it is too demanding, too quarrelsome to expect a service that I thought I had already paid for.What else can I say? The swimming pool was closed. It was one of the supposed attractions of the hotel. Management goes off early and leaves under-trained staff to abuse the guests. There are much nicer hotels in Salamanca, much closer to the city. Why would anyone want to stay in this dump? Unless they get a kick out of being abused?

Easy to find, Close to the Motorway and good Parking

Good swimming Pool and facilities perfect stopover between Santander and Andalucia

Nice rooms and good food, excellent staff and an inexpensive and short taxi ride to the centre of Salamanca and the place to be on the evening of the World Cup What a atmosphere

Excellent value for comfortable bed,amazing and luxurious foyer, with free snacks and drinks, free car park and wifi but problematic without a car for winter. Easy 5 min drive to to the amazing city of Salamanca, just park the car in the free parking along side the river after turning right at the ring road and walk up into the walled area.

Fabulous establishment! Words cannot spell out the whole fascination. Paid less than EUR 60/ a night & lodged in this palace. Especially i have to mention the breakfast - I never had such a feast in the morning - the quality & unbelievable variety of meals was just stunning! Only regret we stayed just 1 night. By the way the parking is free in front of the entrance (not monitored though).

We recently stayed here for the third time as part of a road trip to/from Portugal. This hotel is excellent value for money, the rooms are nice and spacious with king size beds and all is nicely furnished. However, the main reason for writing this review is to say that the staff at this hotel are excellent. We had a problem with our car and the kindness of the reception staff in helping us with translating and communication with the local garage was second to none. We will definitely return to this hotel and hope to stay longer next time. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stop after visiting the sights Northwest of Madrid on the way to Portugal.
The rooms were extremely comfortable...the service warm and congenial...and the food excellent...just a little pricey.
The free parking and closeness to the expressway was very convenient.
The desk clerk that spoke english ordered a cab for us and took time to leave the front desk and give directions to the cab driver to assure we got were we were going. She routinely looked after us during our entire stay.
We felt very welcome and were accomodated with professional service.
We booked a very competitive rate through Expedia.
Enjoy.

  • Liked — Very nice, newly decorsted room.

I went with my wife since we needed to relax for a weekend and enjoy our getaway and this hotel has certainly raised up into all our expectations.

The surroundings are beautiful, almost compared to the City of Salamanca, the Spa is nice and the rooms are very spacious, meals are excellent and rest of the resort is uncomparable.

I definetly and strongly recommend future clients to stay at this hotel.
ITS A WINNER!!
