... told me of her memories. :) (Love you Mom!) Spencer, I tried to make you proud--I took 184 pictures of Salmanca, but due to space on this IPad I had to narrow it down to about 100. I have picked some of my favorite to share with y'all! :) Today we saw a cathedral, ate en La Plaza Mayor, walked through a couple beautiful gardens, took lots of pictures, and saw a statue of a famous historical author of Spain, Miguel ...
... but I still had to do some translating. She told my parents that I don't ever talk, but then she said Marķa doesn't either...Marķa is always yelling, so I think she lost credibility with that one. Although, she did say I do ask a lot of questions...and a lot of weird questions, she added. Hey, I don't know what I'm doing half the time so I try to get some knowledge so I look a little less dumb.
Spanish people are so inconsistent I still ...
... today it's a boomimg tourism site as well as a holy shrine and church.
Had a great lunch at an old monastery in Belmonte that has been converted into a hotel and restaurant. It sits high on a hill with sweeping views of the valley below.
We then crossed over into Spain again for our destination of Salamanca.
... week by being sick....que pena.
Last weekend, everyone and their mother went on excursions around the country and to Portugal. I was one of five people left in my residence and it was AWESOME. I was finally feeling much better so I went walked over to a park on the other side of town to lay under a tree and read. This was a great idea because I met some spaniards who also found it to be a good idea to do this. I practiced my ...
... and atmosphere of a university city with students of all nationalities milling about everywhere and many cheap bars and restaurants. Given its history, its large number of medieval religious as well as academic buildings and its “Plaza Mayor” considered to be the finest in Spain, Salamanca also attracts a large number of tourists. A small word of caution though: it is helpful if you learn at least rudimentary Spanish before coming. Few ...

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.
