Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Good location. Family run business with great helpful hosts. Rooms are small and basic but comfortable. If you stay here its best to eat at places slightly away from the plaza mayor. The owner is a older gentleman who speaks only spanish and is extremely polite.

Perfect location. Arriving by car, there's a space 50 meters away to unload and the garage is just around the corner. 24-hour a day reception. We had a room at the back so no noise at all. The few steps up to the lobby aren't that bad! Really. The young man at the desk when we arrived spoke Spanish, English, French, Italian. So helpful and friendly. Salamanca is out of this world beautiful and what a perfect location for a value-for-money hotel. Life is outside in the town. Don't waste your time or money on a 'fancy' place. Stay at the Hostal for your siesta and night's sleep and walk your socks off in this ever so pretty city.

We stayed here for one night. While the hotel is quote basic, the location was outstanding. Literally on the doorsteps of Plaza Mayor, you couldn't ask for a better spot. The room was basic, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom adequate. We stayed for one night. If i were to stay any longer then two i would choose somewhere 'nicer', but this was perfect for our needs.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Car parking and wifi was also available.

Booked for 4 nights as part of a tour of Spain. Had asked for a quiet room as had read reviews about noise at the front, but the room we were allocated was stuffy and had a frosted window which opened out onto a heat extractor with a constant hum. The staff were really good about letting us relocate to a room at the front with a balcony right in front of beautiful St Martin's Church (with storks nesting on the roof) and a fabulous vibe as people walked to and from Plaza Mayor just 50 yards away. It is noisy and we had to sleep with the windows closed at night, but the room had aircon and it really was a small price to pay for the beauty of the location and the airiness of the room with the balcony doors thrown open. Spent a fair amount of time just hanging on the balcony watching the world go by and soaking up the atmosphere surrounded by the amazing sandstone architecture that defines Salamanca.

Special mention to Francisco, Paco and particularly Oscar, who went out of his way to help us and was a real sweetie. Hard to imagine a better bargain so close to all the main attractions in Salamanca, all of which we visited on foot. There is so much to see that it is impossible to do justice to any of it here, but we really did not want to leave and highly recommend both stunningly beautiful Salamanca and Hostal Plaza Mayor.

Room Tip: We loved room 25 (it's the one in the picture on TA page) but not for the noise sensitive, so be...

We stayed at this Hotel last week and it was marvelous. Oscar on reception was very friendly and did his very best to say everything in English for us which was a relief because not many Spanish people we have found want to try speaking English and our Spanish is terrible! We had a lovely front room with double opening windows and even though it was noisy at times, it didn't bother us, in fact it added atmosphere. The room is a little on the small side, but it's just a place to sleep after all! We found the shower was fantastic. Unfortunately no breakfast was supplied, but you must consider that this is a budget hotel at the low cost of €36/double, so you can't really expect it. Parking was a bit of a problem but after driving around a few streets which Oscar had showed us on a map had free parking, we gave up and parked it at one of the many parking garages within walking distance to the hotel and it only coat $11.50/day

Room Tip: Ask for Room 35 which is a double in the front

The staff at this hotel were excellent. My son and I stayed here for a few nights in February. Our room was small but very clean. We needed a place to park the rental car and they were very helpful in getting us to and from their parking garage. We had no problem with noise from the Plaza and loved being so close to it.
I highly recommend this Hostel/Hotel but not for people who need more amenities or have issues with handling their own luggage. We loved Salamanca and are glad we drove the extra distance from Madrid/Segovia to spend a few nights there.

It can be a bit dispiriting when you arrive, especially if you've got a lot of luggage, to find you have to climb a steep flight of steps just to get to reception, but after that it's fine. Excellent position just a few yards from the Plaza and right in the middle of the old town, a big room (at least mine was), with a decent bathroom, computer on the reception desk where you can catch up with your email or whatever, helpful people (how to get your laundry done, etc), not at all expensive… If I go back to Salamanca I'll stay there again.
