A comfortable and central base in Salamanca
I have just come back from my second visit to Las Claras this year (the first one was in early March, when Salamanca was covered in snow and ice, but the hotel was beautifully warm). Down a quiet side street, but only a short walk from the glorious Plaza Mayor, it provides a central base from whch to explore this lovely city. I would be happy to return again.
Although it is modern and part of a chain, and therefore not full of character, it does not seem soulless - probably mainly due to the very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are a good size, light and bright and well maintained, and nothing seemed lacking to make the stay as comfortable as possible. We could even see the top of the cathedral from our room on the fourth floor. The prices (booked on-line) were very good value compared to similar quality accommodation in other European towns.
We didn't try the restaurant, as we prefer to eat out, and Salamanca has some good places to try.

Loved the Melia Las Claras
My husband and I stayed Las Claras hotel in early August for two nights; and I must say everything was wonderful - the room and batroom were spacious and meticulously clean, the staff was extraordinary helpful and the location could not have been better, just a 5 minute walk to the Plaza Mayor. All this for the great value of 62 dollars a night.
We had a most enjoyable stay in this fantastic hotel. It was real 4-5 star luxury for us - even better, we felt, than our honeymoon hotel in Hong Kong last summer. The hotel is sumptuous, modern, bright and clean. The rooms even have menus for pillows (!) and even for pot pourri (!!) - how decadent is that?! Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from central Salamanca, but we were able to park our hire car in the garage (15 euros p.n.) - or rather the concierge did this for us. The buffet breakfast was first rate also. We got a great deal through Expedia (£48 for a double room, breakfast extra). I would go out of my way to recommend this luxury hotel - a real touch of class and by far the nicest hotel we have stayed in. If you have any chance of staying at this hotel - take it!! Unreservedly recommended.
Great Value in Salamanca
Good hotels in Salamaca are expensive so we were thrilled to get the 4 star Melia Boutique Las Claras through Expedia for only 70 euros a night, August 5th - 8th, 2005.
It is a small, very new hotel conveniently located within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. I wouldn't decribe it as "boutique" exactly as it is too modern and the rooms are a little corporate in their decor. However, the accommodations are spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was huge, with a separate toilet and bidet room and was attractively tiled from floor to ceiling in terracota coloured marble. It contained luxury toiletries, plush terry robes, vanity mirror, and, best of all, a heated main mirror which never steamed up during a shower.
The hotel is easy to get to from the main approach roads from Madrid and the south and there is ample parking in the garage underneath. The staff were friendly and helpful and the nightly turndown service was a pleasant extra touch.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
Definitely Recommend this Hotel
You can't go wrong with this hotel. Salamanca is beautiful and this hotel makes your stay there perfect. We also ate in the hotel restaurant one night which was very reasonably priced with high quality food.
The location is very central and all the fabulous sites are not too far away. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to help.
Excellent choice for central Salamanca
We really enjoyed our stay in this new and rather plush hotel. Our spacious room faced the street, with a view of the towers of the Convento de San Esteban, but was very quiet. The room also had an internal door to block noise from the corridors, which is always a bonus. There was a pillow menu (which we didn't use!) and two dressing gowns. There is also a garage (essential for those with a car in Salamanca as there is very little parking), but it costs 15Euros a night. We booked a last minute deal through the Solmelia website and paid 56Euros a night, without breakfast, which is cheaper than the hotel's lowest published rate.
We stayed for 3 nights. The room is quite large,very clean and a really big bed. The bathroom is great too, with a glass door to divide the wc from the rest. Long bath with a powerful shower, what I love it.
Besides, the room had a view with the Cathedral and a big church, they are lighted up in the night so it was beautiful to have a look before bed time.
Breakfast was include in my fare. It's a good one,you've got everything from sour to sweet. And the service is very friendly and fast.
So I really liked the hotel. The location is good but you have to climb a few streets to get to downtown. Keep it in mind if you are travelling with elder people.
I would recommend this hotel for sure.
Classy and cool
Clean, classy and a very 'cool' hotel. Service excellent and location couldn't be bettered (although a bit hairy to find). We are returning at the end of August.

... out own hunt. The tourist office (eventually found it with help) only gives a list of places and won't call or anything for you. You reduced to door knock! Wifi useless and ridiculously slow. Could find hotel in the square where we were but kept bunking out - got waiter to show me where it is - things in Spain are never where they seem - completely illogical - go in - response is no fully booked - explain online shows they have two rooms and I can't ...
Today is Sunday and the sun is shining. I woke up at a reasonable time but didn't feel like getting out of bed until lunch. For lunch, we had a plate of veggies and of course more pork. Since I wanted to exercise today, I went to Jackie's since we both wanted to. We walked to the park where her host mom usually walks her dog and ran a little bit there but it wasn't that big. So then we decided to run to my house ...
This morning we left Santander. It was so bittersweet to leave behind our new friends to continue our trip. Two of our friends from Holland and England even stood in front of our bus to make it stay!
When we left Santander, we drove straight to Salamanca. This place is incredible! It might actually be my favorite place that I've gone to in Spain so far, and I can't wait ...
... welcome. Everyone seemed to have a good first night. We were each given a little briefcase, a timetable and our class placements. Haydn and I had to take a 10 minute walk to our classes. We are both in the beginners classes, everyone else is advanced. The university is quite spread out and the buildings are just amongst everything else. I'm in a level 2 class, which is a little bit above absolute beginner. I have language class from ...
Two weekends ago, I went to Salamanca with my study abroad group. Laura, a professor here in History and Art, came with us. We stayed in a hotel in the old district, so we could see the Cathedral out our window. Friday night, Laura took us all on a brief tour of the Plaza and some of the main sites. The plaza looked amazing all lit up at night, and there was a lot of people walking around.
Saturday was our busiest day. We took a tour of the University of Salamanca which ...
