We spent three nights at El Toboso in September 2012. The hotel has character...and I mean this in a good sense. The room we had was clean and the bathroom spacious. Our friends also stayed in the adjoining room with their 6 month old and had a larger room with a foyer. Walls were a bit thin but we were usually too tired to care or hear anything. My wife did complain about the noise from the elevator as our door faced the elevator and people checking out in the morning could be heard through our door so I would recommend you ask for a room away from the elevator.
The entrance to the hotel is off a pedestrian street. If you are driving yourself to Salamanca you will park on the one way street by the hotel where they have temporary hotel parking spots to unload luggage. You then walk 30 seconds (50 metres) to the hotel. Once you check in you can drive your car to the underground parking close by. The olny challenge is to navigate the one way streets back to the parking which is basically at the start of the one way street that you are on when parking in the hotel temporary spots.
Location wise the hotel is perfect, walk out and you have 4-6 restaurant bars to choose from. Plaza Mayor is a short 2-3 minute walk. The hotel lobby is not 24 hours so they give you a key to enter the hotel after a certain time is you stay out late. The hotel itself has a bar but it was never used while we were there, except that I asked for a coffee two of the mornings and the owner quickly made one for me.
There is no mini fridge so if you get thirsty at night make sure to have purchased a bottle of water before going to bed. Oh...and you have to lock yourself in the room. Basically it is an old style hotel where you use a key to unlock the door and then the same key on the inside to lock the door. Makes it a bit of a challenge if one of you leaves and the other wants the door locked as one of you will either be locked in or locked out.
Like I said, a hotel with character. We really loved the fact that we were in the heart of Salamanca, close to everything. Once we parked the car in the underground garage we had no need of it for the three days. Enjoy!
