“Walk To City at Night!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed two nights on a two-week guided tour. The rooms was very comfortable and the staff was helpful. Very good value, I believe. Our favorite moment was the late night walk through the city, only a short few blocks from our hotel. Salamanca is on the Via De Santiago and would be a nice stop for hikers.

This is a comfortable hotel, with a relatively decent breakfast, big clean rooms, free wifi. I had a room with a balcony overlooking the square which was nice, though not big enough to lounge about on. The location is great...just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of the admittedly small city. The hotel is a converted old building, but the convert has sucked any potential charm it might have had. It's really just a pretty decent business hotel.

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.
