... could reflect back on for the rest of there lives. I don’t really think about St Cedds (the school I went to) that much. Although, I did go to it later in life when it caught fire and burned down, that was fun!
I had a great time wondering from place to place, this style of visit really suits me as it feels things are forever unfolding in front of me unexpectedly. I stopped for a glass of wine and ended up chatting to Nick, a ...

Mandala, another good restaurant we found, serves delectable smoothies and hot chocolate as well as a varied Menu del Dia. We were lucky enough to find the most delicious frozen yogurt ever, in a small chocolate shop called Slurp. They also have yummy artesan chocolates, but above all you have to try the frozen yogurt.

I thought for sure we would find a little coffee shop open and be able to use the restroom. Not so much! Everything was closed. We made our way to the Casa de las Conchas. As we were taking a few photos, I noticed the building actually housed the public library. We went inside and were able to use the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Las Claras 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.
Melia Las Claras Salamanca Spain
The Melia las Claras Salamanca, Was an excellent hotel
Every thing there is clean and the people in the front desk are really helpfull. they even park your car and bring your car when you needed
We paid for the parking, but this hotel was excellent and the prize also very good
Hotel moderno con una situación inmejorable.
Las habitaciones son espaciosas y están bien equipadas.
El personal tiene un trato muy agradable y el restaurante es bastante recomendable.
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.
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.
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.
