One of the great hotels I've stayed :) Location is perfect; you can walk everywhere; Plaza Mayor and all the major churches and monuments are just a few minutes away; you get good food around the cafes and restaurants... The ladies at thereception are very friendly and helpful and speak good English... So what else do you want to have? ;) Maybe one small critism : in the information e-mail sent it mentions the hotel parking but it's not said anywhere that you have to make a reservation for that. So if you're arriving with your car, take that e-mail serious and don't forget to make a parking reservation.

Conducted our own history tour of this beautiful old ancient city. The university I knew was old but was actually founded in 1134! Wow factor! The facade still stands and the first cathedral was built around it. The first cathedral was build 13th - 15th century and they built a second cathedral in the 16th - 18th century. Go figure! Was able to go up the medieval bell tower of the old church and have a wander around outside and inside the cathedral. ...
... etc into the wood, maybe hundreds of years ago. Some things never change! Had another interesting dinner. I started with some thin slices of meat ( pork?) in a Roquefort sauce while John had some skewer of grilled meat pieces. I then had a thing that looked like arancini but was actually crumbed diced potato with mince meat and some other things. It had a lovely sauce but no idea what it was. John had a thing that was also potato but it ...
Here in Salamanca we start the day off with a light breakfast usually consisting of toast, cereal, or some fruit. This would be fine with me if the next meal wasn't until 2:30! Lunch is around that time and it is a large meal that is somehow supposed to keep me contented until after 9...it doesn't. You can catch me at a cafe around noon and in the fridge again around 6. I'd be near death if I didn't have full permission of the fridge. On an interesting note, after lunch everyday ...
... by this, seeing as I spend an entire day with them in Porto and it went exactly the same way). Eventually we ended up a the Chupiteria which specializes in chupitos, or shots. It was a pretty neat bar and I will say they had very nice shots - definitely the tastiest and smoothest shots I have ever had. Of course, I have no idea what they were seeing as it was all in Spanish and I was really just handed them, but it was quite nice (and cheap - only one euro). Elisa treated me to ...
... br> We went to Salamanca to study Spanish at a small language school, called the Colegio de Espana. It was a lovely school and the teachers were friendly, boisterous and a little crazy!
For my first time studying Spanish I was definitely chucked into the deep end arriving only with knowledge of three words- hola (hello), queso (cheese), vino (wine) and jambon (ham)- no suprises there. I did find myself making up a lot of the history of the town as I could not ...
