Reviewed 11 June 2012

It's not exactly a Hilton, but it's very well-maintained and impeccably clean. Staff was always very friendly and helpful. And location is hard to beat -- central and very quiet at the same time. Remember to take a detailed map with tiny streets and passages marked, because Initially I had some difficulty with finding the hotel (although it's just by Plaza Mayor!). I would certainly recommend it and all positive reviews below are true :-)

I spent three weeks here a number of summers ago (prices were still in pesetas... I selected July 2011 because otherwise the website wouldn't have let me add my opinion), and I have always told myself that if and when I came back, I would come here. The location is stellar, and the room was fine. The proprietors were friendly, and were always good for a chat over a light breakfast in teh morning at the little nook you can see in the photo of the 'vestibulo.' They do offer laundry service, but unless you want the cost of your stay to drastically increase, don't take them up on it! There are not a huge number of amenities like there would be at a resort hotel, but if you're there to see the CIty, and you want that kind of hotel, ytou've kind of missed the point of travelling to a city like Salamanca. Decent price(s), nice people, PERFECT location (can I say that again), good room, great service... Other than that, I can't imagine any place having more to offer a traveller to Salamanca.

I stayed at Hotel El Toboso for four nights in May 2011 and I would definitely stay there again. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and made my colleague and me feel very welcome right from the start.

We had booked two single rooms and they gave us two rooms sharing a small balcony, which we felt was a lovely idea. The rooms didn't face the street and were quiet, very spacious, especially the bathroom (bath tub), very nice and clean. Towels in the bath room were nice and soft.

El Toboso is located right in the heart of Salamanca and you can basically walk everywhere. There is a lovely little square behind a church just outside the hotel - a great place for a cool beer or a glass of red wine in the evening. The main square is just two minutes away.

The room rates are incredibly reasonable. I had a little trouble trying to book my rooms through online hotel reservations agencies (they all showed no vacancies for the hotel although rooms were still available) and ended up writing an email directly to the hotel, which was promptly answered and I could book my room directly without any problems.

For future stays in Salamanca, I would always return to El Toboso.

PS: Free WiFi.

We stayed in the apartment for 3-4 people (we were 4) for 2 nights in El Toboso, and loved it! Our apartment had a good sized kitchen/living area with 2 bedrooms and a big bathroom with a really good shower. The apartment was perfect for making breakfast and coming back to during the day. The location is absolutely perfect - 30 seconds from the plaza mayor. Also, there is an amazing bar next door! It's called Tio Vivo, and is defnitely worth a visit (or two!). The staff were all very friendly at El Toboso and the room was brilliant value. I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Salamanca.

We tried to get a room at Studio Hostal at 54 Zamora, but it was full, so the owner told us to go to this hotel. Acually she called the hotel and followed us along to the hotel.
We got a large very nice room with a huge bathroom for 55 euro a night.
It is 5 min from Plaza Mayor and around the corner there is a small cafe where you can have breakfast.
The landlord speaks english if you need it.
The beds are long and very good and in fact it is amazing that you can get a room for this prize in a wonderful city like Salamanca.
If you go by car you need to park in a multi-storey carpark, but is it very close.
