-tucked away where you would least expect to find a hotel in a very narrow street,we got a lovely welcome, and shown to our room, beamed ceiling and exposed brick walls with lovely curtains and pelmet,bathroom had a spa bath with T lights around it,has a fridge too, and for such a small hotel boasts a beautiful chandelier,a lift, and a Jacuzzi, breakfast was nice too. Wi Fi conn.was great. 5 mins walk into the most beautiful town --
centre,which is really lovely, lots of nice places to eat and drink too, well worth a visit. Our room -2 looked onto a wall which made it very dark most of the time- but also very quiet, a very recommendable place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at Microtel Placentinos for two nights recently. We arrived in Salamanca by train from Madrid, and walked from the train station to the hotel. Having never been in Salamanca previously, we had a slight bit of trouble finding it, but after asking a few key questions of locals, we were successful. For first time visitors, I'd recommend marking the location of the hotel on your smartphone map before setting out walking. The hotel staff are all very friendly, and the hotel itself is simply gorgeous. Since it's a little outside of the most tourist-packed area, the neighborhood is peaceful. A short walk will take you to all the major attractions. Breakfast was very good. We would both be delighted to stay at this gem of a hotel again.

Room Tip: There are 9 rooms total. The stone walls and exposed ceiling beams give it real charm.

Central location and only a short walk to the car park. The room was small but at the price one has to expect this. The bed was only standard double size but I don't think a larger one would have fitted the room. We loved the traditional décor of the room. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet and the breakfast was good. Brilliant for a short stay in warm weather. Salamanca is worth another visit and we would definitely stay here.

I've stayed at Salamanca's Microtel Placentinos four times, most recently in March 2015, with my husband. A return to Salamanca, where we lived for two years and to which we travel often, is always a profound pleasure; Placentinos is one of the hotels we know well, and the right one for our short winter stay focused on culture, food, and nostalgia, with time outside the hotel outweighing time within. Placentinos (the Microtel drops out in conversation), a rehabbed stone structure of considerable age, sits on a narrow street in Salamanca's historic center. It's near the Museo de Bellas Artes, not far from the University's lovely Renaissance core, and more or less opposite the modern History Faculty. There's an abundance of cafes, inexpensive restaurants, bars, and small shops nearby. The walk to the Plaza Mayor -- 'Salamanca's living room,' our younger son calls it - requires only ten minutes. Arriving by train or bus you can reach the center on foot in, at a rough guess, half an hour, but if you have more than a backpack, a taxi is simpler, inexpensive, and the driver will leave you at the hotel door; by car, you should check with the hotel about where to park. You enter the hotel via a sliding glass door; it's usually locked from within and you must attract the desk clerk's attention or use the instructions you're given at check-in. The lobby is compact, like the hotel's eleven rooms; rates are very good value. Stone walls and deep window embrasures with wood shutters and antique-like touches to the furniture provide comfort and appeal to the bedrooms. Beds felt comfortable, and the bathroom, with a tub and a shower (fine water pressure), sparkled. Outside the rooms, a glass-walled elevator has been installed next to a spiral stair, offering visitors choice. Our second-floor room gave onto a back street, with a soothing view from windows (which open) of stone wall and foliage. Students were celebrating -- Salamanca's fabled night life can mean din -- but we heard virtually nothing. Other rooms may not be so silent. If this is an important issue, mentioning it during booking might be wise.This visit, we took front-desk advice and booked a slightly more expensive room with two beds (pushed together), larger, and more comfortable for a couple than the standard double ('cama matrimonial,' in traditional parlance). A basic continental breakfast is included in the room rate. This you take on the lower level, in a small space giving onto a little garden backed by a high stone wall. You can see a hot tub, covered for the winter, there. (It wasn't available in March; we've never sought to use it anyway.) The downstairs space includes a room with sofa and guest computer. Wifi is free and supposed to be useable throughout the hotel; we didn't find it worked well in our room. The networked guest computer was somewhat more reliable. We didn't mind, there being more to do in this Renaissance city than stare at a screen. Also, the staff made phone calls on our behalf to resolve a train question we couldn't answer ourselves with online research. Obviously, Placentinos is not a full-service hotel: it's probably best for those who'll be out most of the day, returning for a siesta and a night's sleep. I recommend it as full of historic charm, centrally located, excellent value, impeccably clean and intelligently and thoughtfully overseen by a team of resourceful young people.

A friendly greeting in good English at the Placentinos, before climbing the stairs to a small but well appointed bedrooms, with exposed brick wall and good quality furniture. the bed however must be a 1.40 / 4ft6in double - if you are tall or wide, this may not be the hotel for you (We were a group of singles with our own rooms, so fine for us!). The shower cubicle was equally small - little room for the super-sized! But downstairs beyond the breakfast room is a small covered terrace with large relaxing jacuzzi, great for tired feet and body after a day in the city or on the road. Parking is the other thing to be aware of - street parking is near impossible such is local demand, and the nearest underground car park is around 300 metres away and 13 euros a night. Despite the word 'small' that hangs over this place, it is smart, great value and well located, definitely one to consider.

Room Tip: There is at least one room with very low ceiling in the bathroom, not sure which, but a friend had to kneel to shave and brush his teeth!
