NH Salamanca Puerta de la Catedral
Ranked #2 of 70 Hotels in Salamanca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2011

We stayed at this lovely NH property and can easily say it was one of the best that the chain has. We stayed at 10 different Nh hotels during a 3 week trip and this one was way better than all of them. The rooms are spacious and very tastefully laid out, service impeccable and above all the staff very friendly and helpful. One receptionist was very helpful in helping us cancel the next night in Segovia to leave us at the same place in Salamanca despite the fact that we were under the 24 hr. window usually needed for cancellations in summer.
Most of all being located across from the premier attraction of Salamanca made this a great choice.

The location of this hotel cannot be beat. Right next to the cathedral; easy walk to the main square. Not easy to get to because of the narrow streets but when you arrive, it will be all worth it. It is smack next to the old cathedral and the Rua Mayor with all its restaurants and shops. Just walk down Rua Mayor straight to the Plaza Mayor.
We booked the least expensive room with a view of the courtyard and it was large, modern, and quite luxurious. For the location and the luxury, the hotel is a great value. The room rates don't include breakfast but there are lots of cafes and restaurants on the Rua Mayor where one can get a reasonably priced breakfast. The parking garage on the narrow street behind the hotel is a bit hard to find but it is secure and leads up to the hotel. All in all, we highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for the first time in March 2011 and will be back again in 2012. Cannot fault the hotel with one thing at all... It was perfect. I particularly like that the facade of the hotel draws absolutely no attention to itself; it's a quiet and elegant hotel behind a quiet and elegant facade.

As others have said, the location really is the best. Having stayed in several other Salamanca hotels, none other has been in the center of it all and yet so incredibly peaceful at the same time. My room faced the back, which could certainly have had something to do with the quiet, but I imagine even the rooms facing the cathedrals are quiet, as well.

While my room wasn't particularly deluxe, it was modern and functional. I would have preferred a more substantial chest of drawers than what was on offer, but no worries... Bathroom was quite spacious and modern with marble tile and extra shelving beneath the sink/vanity.

Ordered room service one night and have to say it really was top. Everything came within half an hour and was of a very high quality. On that note, the breakfast buffet was one of the nicest I've seen in Spain, with beautiful cut fruit, interesting bread/cheese combinations as well as juice combinations, cereals, yogurts, charcuterie, you name it. Wonderful. And the breakfast staff were quite friendly, as well.

The lobby was always quiet and a comfortable place to wait for friends or read, and the desk staff was quite helpful in arranging a restaurant one night and making other suggestions.

A pleasure to stay at the NH Puerta de la Catedral... Looking forward to next year!

Having a balcony looking out at salamanca and the church was one of the better views I have ever had -- with a view of the taj mahal and the african plains the only better ones i can think of. Didnt eat in the hotel or use any of the facilities. I would see no reason "to have to" stay at the hotel unless you can get a balcony and then it is truly worth the experience.

The pros: NH Puerta de la Catedral, as it name states, is located in front of Catedral Vieja, in the heart of monumental Old city of Salamanca, 10 min walk away from the impressive Plaza Mayor and its tapas bars and restaurants. The room are spacious, clean and complete (ours had also a balcony facing the church). We stayed there for 2 nights and, overall, we where satisfied. At the first night, we had a problem with a non-working AC (in fact, it was heating instead of cooling). As the reception desk could not fix it during the night, we had trouble sleeping and had to open our windows (luckly, it wasn't a hot night). The next morning, the said the problem could not be fixed and offered us another room. Considering the mild weather, we decided to stay at the same room and sleep again with windows open (in the summer, we would have thought differently). Apart from that, everything went just fine. We would stay again if returning to Salamanca (which I definetely hope to do one day).

We thought such a strategically placed hotel would be too expensive, but it was quite reasonable and the included breakfast was the best of our trip. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Plaza Mayor, and there are plenty of historic buildings and other sites to see.

We just returned from a trip to Salamanca and stayed in this beautiful, well-designed hotel. Our room was huge, with a spacious "entrance" to the well-equiped bathroom and separate toilet. The beds were big and very comfortable. We only heard the cathedral bells in the weekend until 19.00 hrs. We were not disturbed by any noise, since our room was located somewhere in the middle of the building and therefore we had no room with a view.
The reception staff was very cooperative.
