Microtel Placentinos
Ranked #21 of 70 Hotels in Salamanca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2009

We spent 3 nights at Placentinos in October. It's a great little hotel. If you're looking for a cute, small (only 7 rooms I think) and personal hotel this one is for you. The room itself was very comfortable, the bathroom clean and well appointed. The breakfast, which was included, was better than most, with cheese and meat, juice coffee, bread and pastries. All in all, a really good choice.

Cute boutique hotel, beautiful room and nice bathrooms. The hotel is on a side street and our room overlooked an interior courtyard, so there wasn't much noise from the street. However our room was on the same floor as the reception desk (literally ten paces away) so we did get noise from people coming in and out of the hotel, who had to pass our room to get to the breakfast area downstairs. This was more of an issue in the morning, but if you plan to be up by 8 or 9 it shouldn't be a problem. We asked for an extra bed to be put in our room, so they set up a cot which promptly collapsed when someone sat on it. We just folded the legs down so the mattress lay flat on the floor, and it was fine. The exposed stone walls and subdued lighting give the room a lot of atmosphere, but also make it kind of dark. This is a room to sleep in, not to hang out and read in. Our bathroom was very nice--had a tub that looked like it could have been a mini jacuzzi, and came with little tea candles. Breakfast is included, and we were impressed with the selection. Staff is friendly. I liked this place and would return here, but would probably book a room on a different floor and avoid the cot.

A beautifully and tastefully renovated townhouse, everything is like new but in classic-rustic style, with touches of modern interior design (a glass elevator is clearly an addition). Staff is kind and polite. Rooms are beautiful and clean, with laminated parquet floors (so much cleaner and elegant than carpet !). This is a very small hotel with less than a dozen rooms, and most rooms are tiny. Really tiny. I saw several and they were all small; perhaps there are a couple of bigger rooms, but I did not see them. If this is a concern, avoid this hotel. Otherwise, the location is remarkable, in a quiet small street in the historic center and an easy walk to all the monuments. Caution: "quiet" in Salamanca does not mean you are not going to have groups of students passing by at night, singing and yelling. If you are on the first floor on the street side, shutting the windows makes the noise marginally more bearable. But better yet, ask for a room at the back (which is what I did the second day). The small breakfast area is unremarkable, but breakfast is decent (no fancy buffet here, just your basic continental breakfast). Everything immaculately clean. Service is limited - remember that this is a small hotel and in theory, I believe, a 2* (although decoration and style are very superior to anything you would normally associate with this category). It is a beautiful little hotel.

I stayed with my partner in this nice little hotel at the begining of june '09 for two nights. We got a warm welcom from a smily receptionist. After the first formalities were done we had a chance to explore the room, take a shower and relax on a comfortable bed. Room wasn't very big but very cosy and clean. Bathroom was to a very high standard with hydromassage shover!
We had breakfast inclusive and again no disappoitment on this side either. There was choice of bread,pastries, salamies,cheese,jams,cereals,jogurts,juices,snacks and coffee was very nice (we had our favorite one 'café con leche').
Salamanca is pretty little town with more than few universities and cathedrals. There seems to be a lot going on when we were there - but that's seems to be everywhere we went in Spain before and after being in Salamanca. I really liked the Art Deco museum building - we saw Mucha's exhibiton while there.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay here. And the hotel is a bargain for the service and location!

We stayed here in the past weekend and we loved this little and lovely 2 stars hotel. My boyfriend who travels a lot said that it didn't look like a 2 stars hotel but as 4 stars.
Our room was not very big but it was beautifully decorated. I love the walls and the white curtains. Simple but gorgeous.
The bathroom is nice and it has jacuzzi.
Everything was very clean.

The breakfast was very complete and the receptionist was nothing but gentle and helpful.
The location is wonderful because it is in the historical center but in a very quite street.
The only thing bad we have to say about Placentinos is that we can easily hear the people of the other rooms. Except this and the hotel was perfect.
I recommend it without any reservations for a romantic getaway.

The Microtel Placentino is a small, perfectly designed hotel with nine rooms which rent for an unbelievably low €67/night including breakfast. The hotel is minutes from everywhere you want to be. The women who run it are helpful in the extreme. There is a computer downstairs with unlimited free use. Every bathroom has a tub with Jacuzzi. Salamanca is a glorious and lively old university town build primarily in golden stone. Neither the town nor the hotel should be missed.

Staying in Salamanca two weeks to study Spanish, I was keen to find a comfortable, pleasant hotel in the old part of the city. I certainly struck lucky when I came across the Microtel Hotel, in the calle Placentinos close to the University and Cathedral, but without the daily bustle of passing students and tourists.
This old convent is now a 9 roomed hotel with a small breakfast room, and TV/reading area, opening out onto a small decked patio with open air jacuzzi! A fountain may have been more appropriate and pleasing to the eye, but who I am to judge! I was impressed by the quality and design of my room, & had a smart and very functional bathroom with massage shower. The young staff were helpful and friendly. Value for money on room prices was excellent. This hotel is a haven and an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful architecture and delights of Salamanca. The freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast was particuarly welcome as many places now offer concentrate.
