We were Very impressed with this Hotel. From arrival right through to departure after a five night stay we couldn't fault any aspect. Indeed on reviewing our five weeks in eleven hotels through Spain and Italy we rated The Wellington Number One. We actually were intending to break our stay here with an overnight trip to Toledo and didn't bother as we were enjoying Madrid and this hotel so much.
Front office staff could not have been more helpful and courteous. The Bell Captain was the epitome of 5* professionalism, always helpful with directions and recommendations. A fleet of taxis always ready at the curb.
The location in Salamanca is perfect, a nice change from last year when we stayed right in the city. It is near to great shopping and an array of good restaurants and bars. Being only a short cab ride to the centre of the city.. we strolled back through Parque del Retiro (a block away) on one day which was a true delight.
The pool (a most desirable feature in August) was excellent, ..plenty of facilities and efficient poolside beverage and snack service plus an adjacent shaded casual dining and bar area, with the Spa and Gym integrated adjacent.
Our suite was large, quiet, well appointed and very comfortable.
We also availed ourselves of the overnight laundry service which was again excellent.
We found every aspect of this hotel well presented and thoroughly recommend it.
