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.
It is hard to explain the feeling of wellcome in this hotel, you have to be there to understand. Forget all the big fancy hotels, if you have to stay in Salamanca, you must try this place. Staying there is not a stay it's an event!!!
The only thing we did not like is the breakfast which was realy bad (for the price) but even this can not take away from the charm and the perfection of a stay at this place, just ask the owner and they will tell you the best breakfast places in the area, and even point it to you on a map. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the center of town and all the food, shopping and attractions. This place is a must!!!
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.

... included in restorative work on the cathedral.
Also visited the museum Casa Lis, an old art deco style building with lots of stained glass and displays of art nouveau and art deco glassware and other objects. We learnt about the Nancy School style of glass making established by Emile Galle and watched a video about this as well.
There was also an exhibition going on about Coco Chanel ...

Some opted to browse the tourist shops, the only thing open during siesta, and some took refuge during intermittent rains in a chocolateria Scott and I discovered during our scouting trip last year. Valor Chocolates is a small shop in the university district offering all things chocolate. Churros with hot chocolate is a uniquely Spanish treat. Deep-fried, doughy churros are dipped in the super-thick cup ...
... for lunch. I am starting to think it is more of a struggle between lunch and dinner than it is between breakfast and lunch. For lunch, we had fried chicken and spinach again. Of course we had a fresh baguette with my new favorite cheese! I am so glad we get Spanish traditions and French traditions at the same time. After lunch, I slept for a few hours in hopes that it would make my sickness go away. We were supposed to go to Sam and Jackie's to start planning but I think we are ...

They are all obsessed with going to the beach. In my last class we had to role play being in a restaurant. She even gave us the phrase for 'I found a hair in my soup'. Was fun but tricky. After class I met Libby in the square and we walked ...

Our first week in Salamanca has been a lot of chilling, really nice compared to the first few days of running around constantly on this continent. We woke up at 10:30ish today, which was probably the earliest we've woke up since settling into our apartment. I suppose we're still jet lagged. It'll get old quick though, there are many places in the city and region I'm anxious to see.
