Travel Blogs from Salamanca
... night is when students are back from holidays. Yet I wasn't disappointed as Salamanca is one of my favorite places of Spain, and I am very sure I will come back again and see more of Salamanca and enjoy one of those wild nights.
I love you and leave you with a song by Joaquin Sabinas "El capitÓn de su calle", based on a guy who spends his life in the wild party, just like a student haha. Enjoy!!
... to a pen where locals would jump around taunting the bulls. It was exciting, the guys were flying around and the bulls were ready for it with their heads down charging. All I could hear among the yelling was Emile's very distinct laugh. Guys were within inches of getting nailed and you just couldn't stay in your seat. I've never seen so many Adidas track suits in one place. It was so much fun. Unfortunately they only did two rounds of this show which was a ...
... I had heard from several different individuals that they didn't like bull fighting mostly due to the cruelty and harm that it imposes on animals who were raised for the sole purpose of killing. In that sense I completely understand the viewpoint of others, but at the same time sitting there in that arena I witnessed, first-hand so much culture, tradition, love and respect for ones fellow comrade. It was crazy to see how young and old alike, literally ...
... FreeSans, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; ">The wine and tapas was so much better here than the previous tapas bar but was slightly cheaper. We finished our wine and wandered out into the street to find our next bar. I thought this was wise because there was a small antique cannon on display in the corner near Video Girl. If somehow it had been damaged I don't think I could have explained myself to a tapas bar full of vino fueled Spaniards. In fact, in ...
... square, where Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico, was giving a speech about Salamanca. Needless to say, we were slightly confused, but it was definitely interesting seeing Vicente Fox in Spain.
After lunch, our tour was over and it was time to walk back to our meeting spot and take the bus back to Madrid. Salamanca is a beautiful city, and large enough that I would simply recommend it to the casual tourist to Spain, not only to those looking for art or history.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rector Salamanca
Wonderful building, lovely room, staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Room was delightful and had view of cathedral towers. Only minor drawback: the bed was a bit of a hammock. Apart from that I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and only wish we could have stayed longer.
This is a lovely, small and classy hotel. We stayed here for two nights. The staff were very friendly and the rooms spotless. We seemed to be the only people staying there!
On the downside we booked this hotel on a website that guaranteed a rate of 239 Euros for a double room including breakfast and tax. However, when we checked out we were charged an extra 40 Euros for breakfast plus 7% tax. There is also a charge of 10 Euros plus tax for car parking. If we knew breakfast was not included we would have gone elsewhere as it is a not very special atall (rolls cheese and jam).
We stayed here on Nov. 25 2004. This is the best hotel room we ever had. This hotel is a jewel. We stayed in a standard room which is much more that any super deluxe room in any other hotel. Rooms are big, super clean and elegant. The bathroom is so clean and shiny that you can eat of the floor (as the saying goes). One of the owners greet you at the door and even park my car for me. The other owners did all the paperwork and cerry our stuff to the room and even refused to take any tip.
Agree that Hotel Rector accommodations, location, and staff are the best!
We loved our stay here in October 2004 and agree wholeheartedly with the comments about the pleasant staff. The hotel also has a great, secure parking garage located just behind it.
Marvelous people work at Hotel Rector
Some of the nicest people in the world work here. They appear to care about Salamanca and about your stay in their fine city. We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time. We dropped off our son who stayed for several weeks in Salamanca (but not Hotel Rector). When he had problems with directions, he returned to Hotel Rector where they remembered him, treated him like family, and gave him reliable help.
The only place to stay in Salamanca
We (wife and 3 adult children) stayed here for 3 nights from July 29 to Aug 1st in a double and a triple. This was easily the best hotel we stayed at in Spain. We stayed at the Weston Palace in Madrid, the AC Palacio de San Estabon in Salamanca, the Meson del Cid in Burgos and the Hotel Infanta Isabel in Segovia, only the Palace compares and nothing compares to the pleasant owners and service provided at the Hotel Rector. Stay here, you'll like it. Definitely a 4 star hotel that should be rated a five.
A great experience
Stayed in Hotel Rector in May for 2 nights. . Booked the suite which was very comfortable, spacious and clean. Owner and staff are particularly friendly and helpful - can't say enough good things about them. An excellent base to tour Salamanca for a couple of days.
Absolutely loved Hotel Rector
Would be my choice of hotel again and again - luxuriously affordable. Very convenient, super comfortable; and the staff were so friendly & very helpful.
Cleanliness is next to......
The staff were very helpful. The rooms were immaculate.On leaving the hotel for a couple of hours , on our return , the rooms had been recleaned .This occurred throughout our stay. The hotel is a short walk away from the heart of the historic centre. We stayed in the standard rooms which were good , especially the marbled bathroom. If you can afford the suites , I would plump for their luxury , but you won't feel underchanged by the standard rooms.The beds were very comfortable.
Overall , a peaceful retreat , in a beautiful old city
Very attentive service, beautiful and large rooms and baths at a bargain rate. Excellent location, private garage, quiet boutique hotel. A wonderful stay in every way. For $170, we had a suite, with separate living area, huge marble bath, 2 full size beds. From elegant linens to comfortable sitting in the lobby, you won't forget this place. Great restaurants are within walking distance, and a lovely wine shop is 2 doors down. Walk to all sites.
