“Good accomodation, but the food leaves a lot to be desired.”
Reviewed 19 August 2012 via mobile

Reasonably good hotel overall. However, the evening meal (set menu for €11 per person) was absolutely appalling. To our surprise, their breakfast was fairly good. Also, the family rooms with bunk beds are too tiny to comfortably accommodate two adults and two kids. We stayed overnight at the hotel on our way to Portugal. The hotel is clean and tidy with good quality fixtures and fittings. I would use the hotel again, but would not order a meal there. The location of the hotel is poor. It is in an industrial estate area and needs a car to get into town which leaves you with little choice in terms where to eat.

Once again this hotel deserves it's high placement on the reviews listing. Silverio the hotel director has an excellent team in place, all who know how to do their job efficiently and with a smile. As i'd purchased my room online via the melia.com website and had completed my passport details , checkin took 1 minute. The rooms are just as good and maintained as last year, i think the air-con worked better this year so they must have tweaked this since our last stay.

This time we took the half board package (88 euros for 2 persons !!) fantastic deal. You think ok the food is not going to be good but you are WRONG. Althought the selection from the set menu over the weekend is limited, the food was great, from the starter thru to dessert (ok spanish cuisine is not known for their desserts but this were edible and not the usual, choice of flan, rice pudding, creme dessert or ice cream).

After a good nights sleep, a healthy and full choice for hot and cold for breakfast, we collected our car from the secure underground car park and set off for our final destination of Estepona, Costa del Sol.

I forgot to collect my ice pack i'd given them to freeze overnight, i realised when we were already 150km from the hotel, but when i reconnected to my email, the hotel staff had sent my a message saying i'd forgetton my ice pack and they'd keep it safe and give it to my sister who was coming to say at the end of July with her 8 persons group ( 2 family rooms). And yes they did do this (it took a little asking and hunting but they located the ice pack).

So congratulations to Silverio and the whole team at Tryp Montalvo, you'll continue to get my custom, my family and friends reservations for as long as you maintain the high quality for such a reasonable price.

PS Nice to have the kettle and coffee in the room, thank for the addition, can we dream of a small swimming pool soon to relax after the long drive and to cool off in the Salamanca heat?

Room Tip: The 2 different rooms we stayed in have both been quiet, so can't really recommend apart from as...

All the staff we dealt with at reception spoke English and were pleasant, helpful, cooperative, obliging and responsive — especially Javier who checked us in at reception and provided information as we needed it, and Alex who hailed from Toronto. We received exactly the type of room that we had requested on the reservation form.

The hotel is (next to a currently empty office building) in a sterile but tranquil commercial-industrial area on the other side of the river from and south of Salamanca's historic center. The area around the hotel is reminiscent of a flat, freeway-plains area outside Denver.

Surface parking in front of the hotel is free, as is street parking (which we always found available, safe and preferred for its convenience). The hotel offers underground parking for E4.32 per night.

You could walk into the city center; however, it is not a particularly convenient or pleasant walk, paralleling the main road Avenida de Saavedra y Fajardo with traffic and nothing of interest along the way. We drove to the residential area on the south side of the river and opposite the Roman bridge, parking for free in Plaza de Poniente which has a small park and children's playground in the middle. From here, we walked across the Roman Bridge and up the hill to the Cathedrals, a pleasant 10-15 minute walk.

Alternatively, from the hotel you can take the 12 bus into Salamanca which passes about every half hour. The bus stop is on Calle de la Tierra de Campos, around the corner from the hotel where you see the sign "AUTO-ELECTRIC Sanfructuoso" (check details with reception).

Our room was on the top floor, at the far end of the carpeted corridor away from the main road and facing the street. Rooms at the front of the building face the open parking area, street and commercial buildings. The street was quiet at night and did not carry much traffic. Rooms at the back look across to Salamanca city and the Cathedrals; however, they also face the access ramps to and the main N-501 Ronda Sur connector.

With a parquet floor, our room was functional, practical, comfortable and well-maintained, having adequate space to move around and to store smaller bags (it reminded us of a better, Japanese, business hotel room). As with most other hotels that we have stayed at, the room admitted noise from the corridor: slammed and closing doors, activities of the cleaners and other people, voices and the like. The doors really needed a rubber seal to absorb the impact of and deaden the noise of being slammed. Soundproofing between rooms seemed adequate.

The queen-size mattress on a platform base was comfortable, as were the four thick pillows. On either side were side tables (one with a telephone) and both table and wall reading lamps. The room heating and ventilator worked well. The double-glazed windows effectively blocked noise from the parking area and street outside.

Next to the work desk with a chair and a table lamp was a small bar fridge with beverages for purchase (we used it to store beverages we bought at a supermarket). The free room WiFi worked well; however, we found that if the connection was slow, reconnection to another floor could work better. The flat-screen TV displayed about 70 channels, mainly in Spanish, but with a few in English, French and German, and broadcast 15 radio stations.

The bathroom was clean and in good condition. It had a bath-shower with liquid soap available from dispensers near the bath and the wash basin. The hot water system worked well.

We ate in the hotel restaurant, which was quite good and better than expected. From 7:30 a.m. till 10:30 a.m. for E8.64 it had a very extensive and varied continental breakfast buffet (worth the price). From 8 p.m. till 11 p.m. it served dinner. In addition to a regular menu, for E11.90 it offered a complete Menu del Dia which partially changed each day and had a good choice of well-prepared dishes which included first and second courses, bread, dessert, and a choice of beverages from wine (750 ml bottle for two people and was quite good), beer (large glass), soft drinks and mineral water (one liter bottle). Service was pleasant and efficient. For convenience after a day of sightseeing in the area, we dined there several times during our stay. From some seats in the restaurant you can see Salamanca Cathedrals, floodlit at night, floating majestically in the distance (alas, above the roof of the "Firststop Servicio 24 Oras" car service building in the foreground).

To get to the hotel from Madrid by car, get onto N-501, SA-20 Ronda Sur. Exit at the intersection with N-630, E-803 and the roundabout for Av. de Saavedra y Fajardo and Ctra de la Ruta de la Plata. Drive south past the hotel and away from Salamanca; move into the left lane. At the first street on your left, turn in, go around the roundabout and head back where you came from but along the narrow lane (running parallel to the main road) — which will widen and lead to the hotel.

In case you want a full supermarket, there is a large Carrefour (with free car parks, both surface and underground) north of the city at Glorieta Ruta de la Plata on the corner of La Baneza and Avenida de los Agustinos Recoletos.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the top floor, at the far end of the carpeted corridor away from the main highway...

This is a kind of Hotel that you can find in every working area, surrounded by big trucks, factories an depots. But this is a very good example of how doing well taht kind of hotels. It is in a industrial area, very quiet, the rooms are very clean, not so wide but very confortable, with an amazing bed, blankets and soft pillows!. the staff is very kind and professional. The Hotel have both parkings, out for free, and the street at evening is empty of cars. It's no so far away of the town, enough to rest absolutely while sleep. A smart option!. The breakfast is one of the best that I tried ever.

Easy to find. Friendly staff. Good cheap underground secure parking. Delightful large rooms. Bus into city for 1 euro 3 minutes walk away. Left out of hotel then immediately right and first left. Cross over and bus is number 12. Get off at first stop over the bridge. Breakfast fine. Hotel situation rather drab but an excellent place to stay even so.

We recently stayed again at this hotel and were once more very pleased with the room, breakfast and service on the reception desk.

We had caused a problem with our booking, and the hotel generously resolved it for us at no extra cost. Many thanks.

The underground secure parking is excellent and makes this hotel perfect for leaving a loaded car in safety.

The free Wifi connection was also a bonus and worked perfectly.

We have stayed at this hotel on several occassions because it is so close to the motorway. The rooms are very clean and multi lingual staff very nice. It is on an industrial site. I have not found another restaurant within walking distance which is a problem. We have eaten in the Hotel restaurant which served a very poor quality menu of the day and on another occassion at the bar for a club sandwich. However this was so greasy that my husband could not eat it. We would never eat at the Hotel again. Also for the last few times I have noticed they have only put one toothbrush and comb etc out for emergency use. The last time we went we both forgot our toothbrush, when we asked for another at reception they could not find one for us - this did spoil our on route over night stay. I did complete the 'official' complaint form which they would do anything to stop this. They originally told me to email the company but this is not the same. If you have a complaint ensure you ask for the Official Complaint Book. I was offered a free breakfast if I did not complain but declined it.

They do have an underground car park for under 5 euros a night which I understand is big enough to take a van or trailer inside. I did not use this as outside parking appears to be safe.

We would use the Hotel again for an over night stay and would not eat in the restaurant or bar. we will of course ensure we both have our own toothbrush.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a NON smoking room. I did search on line for the cheapest price and used a company...
