This hotel is in a nice location in Salamanca which is near all the posh shops and is very safe. It's about 6 Euros from the large shopping area in Portal del Sol & Plaza Mayor. Now I'd prefer to stay somewhere quiet and shop elsewhere but everyone has different expectations.
We had a room with no view which is fine but the shower floods the bathroom floor and the decor is a bit tired looking.
The friendly & helpful staff does make up for the decor, and the breakfast is not bad.
It is in a convenient location.
They have a cool Dry Martini bar which does good cocktails & tapas - for a price of course!
Spanish Christmas markets is a HUGE disappointment but that could be my ignorance in not knowing the difference between this and the traditional markets I've come to expect from Germany, Austria & France. Spanish ones are all tacky wigs and plasticky religious figurines and mistletoe sprays.
