Hotel is 10 minutes drive from Salamanca's historical centre (aprox. 10 euros by taxi). VERY strange hotel and environment - it is located within a complex which includes golf course, housing, paddle tennis club, and not much else. Views are of building sites. Although only built in 2002, the whole place is very dated - think Spanish design of the 1950's - and, to my mind, really tasteless, from the chandeliers all over the place, paintings on ceilings, statues/plaques in honour of the builder's family to the bedrooms with heavy wood.
Reception not at all friendly, but efficient.
Bedrooms/bathrooms: very clean. Uncomfortable lay out in that the sink is outside the bathroom/shower area which means turning on light in bedroom to get a drink of water. Bathroom had a very shallow "bath" and water was tepid on a couple of occasions (early evening). Bad lighting (either very dark or harsh with ceiling lights turned on). Wifi crashed every 5 minutes and when it worked, was extremely slow. Mattress very hard.
Our room had "view" of the block in front - 5 metres away, so you have to ensure that curtains are drawn at all times!
Food: had lunch in the first floor restaurant which was awful. Breakfast was very bad quality, disgusting coffee, fake juices from a machine and nasty pastries. No newspapers on offer - we were told to drive in to the nearest village if we wanted one!
Plenty of hotels in the centre - don't go to this one!
