My family and I adored Hotel Rector. It had the warmth of a family establishment with the service of a luxury hotel. The staff were extremely nice and helpful, and the space is fittingly beautiful for a city so beautiful as Salamanca. Of all the hotels my family and I stayed in on our trip to Spain, our night at Hotel Rector was perhaps our favorite. We checked out with a long drive ahead of us, and the woman at the reception desk gave us a bag of snacks for the drive. It was great value for the cost— there was cava upon our arrival, an amazing included breakfast, and access to a gym.

I would give this hotel more stars if I could. The service is amazing, the rooms are lovely and the location is excellent. Breakfast is wonderful and the service is very personal. This is a small, boutique hotel that is just charming. I would be happy to stay here again.

The location is fantastic and close to many tourist attractions. Also, close to restaurants, the ladies and all the staff at the front desk are super cordial and helpful. The breakfast was terrific. The rooms are spacious, with a delicate touch of luxury. Overall, this is my #1 recommendation for value, service, and location to everyone.

Absolutely amazing experience.The employees are so kind and make you feel welcome from the very beginning. They take care of every little detail you can think of and make sure your stay is a memorable one. If you appreciate privacy and exclusivity, you'll be glad to know that only guests can access the common areas. I can't say enough nice things about Hotel Rector. It's more than a hotel, it's a home away from home.

First day at the hotel and already a five star review. The hotel is beautiful, cosy, decorated with very good taste. The lounge has plenty of good books. The rooms are very comfortable and well designed. All the staff we've talked to is very nice and professional. It's located very close to the monumental area of the city. Next time I'm in Salamanca, I won't bother to check any other hotel!
