Just this review to re endorse this lovely and friendly hotel. Warm welcome, very safe and clean, fridge in room, windows that open, clean and comfy. My partner loved the new towels. Soaps and shampoos provided, parking at the back. Minutes walk from Salamanca and very close to CBD, it's really in CBD come to think of it. Simple and...

This place didn't rate on looks but once you get inside it makes you feel right at home. We stayed over-night and the digs were good. All staff were friendly and the meals were spot on. Met a few other travelers there and a good time had by all.

Well, it is what you would expect- pretty basic. But it was clean and in a superb location. The staff were really nice and the pub food was well priced with a great pub atmosphere. A great combination.

The hotel and staff are welcoming and friendly, the meals are ok the price of a room is somewhat fair but the rooms are very in need of a good clean. No milk in the fridge, wall paper and plaster coming off is not good. Dirty linen. But the location is excellent

Great value for money. Staff are super friendly and helpful and that's what makes this place. Rooms are basic but have everything you need. I stayed in a single room which was very spacious. 2 shared bathrooms for 4 rooms and one is brand new - the other is ready for its upgrade! Not far from the city centre and...

the room was clean and well equiped, it was in a walking distance from city center. The walls were very thin so you could hear everything but it wasn´t too bad. There is a bar downstairs and a friendly staff.
