    Fabulous

    The location was excellent - the hotel building was beaautiful - excellent view of historic Salamanca - especially impressive when lit up at night. The reception desk staff was extremely courteous and helpful. However, the dining wait staff was not at all good- we are used to having coffee and fruit first and then going back for hot items and toast but the servers just stood in a corner talking while dishes piled up and were not around for refills of coffee. The Buffet itsekf was also very disappointing - not a good selection and the hot items were very poor quality. I think we paid 13.50 Euros per person - it was certainly not worth the price - but even if if were half that we wouldn't go again because of the service/quality.

    I have stayed at Abba Fonseca several times and its location is great. The rooms are big and the staff is very polite.

    The breakfast is not that good.

    Excellent customer service!! Arrived at 430 am and the night receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. Allowed us to rest in the lobby while waiting for our room to be ready. Huge rooms. Great bathroom facilities. Close to the old town as well.

    Very good

    In a good location to easily access the old town of Salamanca and has a lovely atmosphere. Fairly easy to find compared with some hotels. Had good views across to the ancient old town buildings.

    Only had one comfortable chair making it difficut for two people to relax. Has a car park but the spaces and very tight unless you have a small car.

    Spacious room, excellent bar facility and service, quiet setting

    Air conditioning was a bit noisy and inefficient, but having stayed there a number of times, suspect it was specific to our room.

    Large well appointed rooms looking out over the city skyline. Efficient and friendly reception staff. A quality hotel and quiet.

    Expensive breakfast but you can always go across the road to the local café!

    Tastefull modern decor, clean surroundings with an efficient room service. The staff allways courteous and helpfull at all times and an excellent selection for the buffet breakfast.

    The smoking permitted in certain areas can be irritating for non smokers coming from countries where this is not the case.

    Superb

    Everything was ok, the location, the breakfast, the clenliness; I would only expect a better knowledge of english from the reception desk people. Also it would be helpful to have coffee/tea/milk abvailable to take ourselves (you could get the room number some other way).
