“First class”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

A very professionally run hotel. All the staff seem to know you the minute you step through the door. Service happens instantly, so unlike the experience in large 5 star hotels. Room very quiet thanks to acoustic double glazing even though it had a view across the street to the cathedral. Good secure parking. Hotel is easy to drive to, but is as well located as any for the prime sights.

We stayed two nights to visit Salamanca. The hotel is located just outside part of the old city wall and within easy walking distance of all the main sights. On arrival the friendly and helpful receptionist provided us with a complimentary beer, a city map and precise directions to all the main sights and the location of some (excellent) recommended restaurants. Our hire car was parked in a secure garage which we had pre-booked and we were shown to our large deluxe room which overlooked the street but was quiet due to the excellent sound proofing. That combined with the blackout blinds and comfortable bed caused us to sleep in next morning and we only just made it to the breakfast buffer. The choice was excellent and included eggs cooked to your liking. Do stay here when you visit Salamanca.

Salamanca is a great city and Hotel Rector is a perfect way to enjoy it. DH and I were there for 2 nights in May and we were wowed by the friendliness of the staff. By the time we left, Silvia seemed like an old friend and the entire staff did everything they could to make our stay a pleasant one. Our superior double room overlooked the street and old wall, but noise was not an issue. The room was quite comfortable and spacious. Great marble bath with all the amenities. The walk to the old town is rather steep for those with mobility issues, but great exercise for us. Highly recommend this boutique hotel as well as a stay in beautiful Salamanca!

This is a lovely hotel by any criterion. It is very nicely located -- just outside the city walls, but an easy walk to the city center and the Roman bridge. The room was lovely, with a beautiful bathroom and attractive (if traditional) furnishings. The bathrooms amenities were Bvlgari and the terry bathrobe was very thick. The breakfast room is lovely and the breakfast was very nice. Our room was dead quiet, too.

There is parking, but it is limited, so reserve in advance. We didn't, but they squeezed us in.

Hotel is on an inner ring road by the city walls. It is an old building but the service levels are high.
No restaurant, but the receptionists suggestions of a modern Tapas restaurant about 8 minutes walk away was taken up and much enjoyed. A walk to the main square and cathedral takes about 8 to 10 minutes at a normal pace. Parking at the hotel is at the rear in a protected car park, part of the building. When you park you are walked through to reception. Parking is tricky and they will drive your car out when you leave if you require it. There is a bar and a breakfast room.
Rooms are well appointed and bathrooms very well equipped.

Room Tip: we asked for a quiet room away from the road. It had no view but was very quiet!

This is an elegant small hotel which is family run. It is an old building but with all modern requirements. it is next to the city walls and only 4 mins walk from main square. The breakfasts are a delightful array of fruits and pastries artistically arranged.and all cooked food to order. The hotel does not do evening meals but there are plenty of good restaurants near by.The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at back are very quiet

My husband and I began our recent trip to Spain at the wonderful Hotel Rector. This hotel set the gold standard for the rest of our holiday. Located immediately outside the historic centre of Salamanca and within a very short walk of the Puente Romano the Hotel Rector is in an ideal location for exploring this beautiful city. Our deluxe room was spacious, inviting and, although facing the road, very quiet. The staff was excellent. For an extra cost there is secure parking adjacent to the hotel. I hope that we have an opportunity to return to Salamanca in the future and, if so, we will definitely stay at the Hotel Rector.
