“Lovely, Quaint Hotel, Walk to Medieval La Alberca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I spent a few days in La Alberca at this hotel: I highly recommend it for a variety of reasons. It is an older but beautiful building with warmth and character. Rooms are charming, and bathrooms have all been recently updated. My room had French doors that opened to look out over the town of La Alberca. The reception area is very friendly and helpful, and will assist you to make plans to visit Salamanca or other area attractions. There is a sitting area with wood-burning fireplace in the front of the hotel to the right as you enter, opposite the bar/dining area to the left of the entrance hallway. Both areas display collections of beautiful Albercan embroidered work as well as sculptures and antiques. Breakfast and dinner (I opted out of the lunch time meal, since breakfast was quite plentiful and dinner was, too.) were served by attentive waiters. Portions were very generous servings of local cuisine. The feeling of this hotel transports the guests back in time, and the town itself will add to the feeling. The property reflects the stone architecture of the medieval town.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or fitness center at this property.

The Doña Teresa hotel is very well located in the Alberca. Easy access to the main road and at a easy walking distance to the centre of the village. Although there is carpark available you will be best parking in the main street, as the entrance is narrow and bended and your car body paint might suffer.
The service is very good, rooms have a fairly nice size and although the furniture is outdated the mattress is very good and comfortable ensuring a good rest after an enjoyable long day walking the fantastic surroundings.
Don't forget to by some Iberian Ham at Eusebio´s shop or main factory.

Close to the heart of the medieval town of La Alberca, Dona Teresa Hotel is a charming hotel kept clean and tidy. The staff is outstanding and will do everything they can to make you comfortable and happy. Not all speak fluent English, but those who don't are familiar with using Google Translate at the computer at the receptionist's desk. This hotel is owned by the same person who owns La Catedral Tapas Bar in the town's Plaza Mayor, as well as the Abadia D Los Templarios Hotel a short distance away. My room was quite spacious, although not all are. Mine had a balcony looking out to the street and houses beyond. A refrigerator bar is kept stocked for you. Laundry service is available. The restaurant serves very good meals. A bar in the restaurant is available, Your room will have television but there are also two televisions in the lobby and restaurant areas. If I am able to rerun to La Alberca, I will stay at the Dona Teresa again. Wi Fi worked in my room as well as in the restaurant and lobby. All of the beds' coverlets in both hotels are hand appliqued with folk art figures and are quite lovely.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms open into a small garden area. Be aware that those people staying in rooms above...

Great location and a 2 minutes walk into the heart of this small town. Hotel itself is comfortably decorated has a nice public area. Hotel bar and restaurant are very good. Rooms are a good size and are very comfortable. The facility and rooms were clean and secure. It is good this hotel has a restaurant, as in March there were few restaurants in town that were open in the evening. This is a great hotel and town to stay in for relaxation. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be good. Some do not have a balcony, others have a balcony.

Very very nice hotel, fantastic food, great location. LA ALberca is a great place to get away from it all and Hotel Dona Teresa provides a great base to stay in...if only it had a pool it'd be 100% perfect!

The Dona Teresa is one of those rare finds, a beautiful hotel with good staff in a stunning location. The rooms are nice - not outstanding but comfortable and clean and the bathroom is well equiped and clean. There is a small, safe underground car park which is a bit tight to get in and out of but it's free of charge. Reception staff are helpful and friendly, the evening bar staff are efficient but not very amicable .

We never ate here as we'd fresh memories from our previous hotel the night before who served us a nauseating meal of pig fat so we headed into town to find a place to eat there. The town of La Alberca is a stunning medieval place full of old buildings and narrow cobbled passages to explore. It centres around a main square with a few bars and restaurants. The roads into the town are superb, with stunning views as you climb higher.

Breakfast not included in room price so has to be paid for seperately and is quite mediocre - nothing special just the usual bread / coffee etc.

I stayed at the Dona Teresa for 10 days during a conference.

My first impression of my room on the first floor was well...stunning. Large, well appointed and so, so clean. Not all rooms are the same I know but mine opened onto a small private garden. I could quite happily have stayed there for life !!! Everyone I spoke to wherever they were located spoke highly of their accommodation. The bathroom too was spotless and had lots of lovely toiletries. I am somewhat disabled and requested a non slip bath mat, it arrived within the hour, how good is that !!!

The food at Dona Teresa is excellent, I don't know what else I can say about my dining pleasure.

I speak little Spanish but I had no trouble communicating with the really helpful and friendly staff.

I didn't take a laptop but if you do, there is free wi fi, however the hotel let me use their own computer free of charge so I could check on my e-mails from home.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room
