We have stayed in Pablo and Belén's apartment for four nights. We felt very welcome straight away. As our flight was delayed, we did not arrive in Salamanca until 00:30, yet Pablo insisted on picking us up from the bus station and taking us to the apartment. He even gave us some useful tips and ideas as to what we could do during our time in Salamanca. They had even made us a cake to make us feel even more welcome. Whenever we had any questions during our stay, Pablo and Belén where always available to answer them. We even had the pleasure of meeting their lovely daughter Paula, aka the happiest baby I have ever seen :)
The apartment itself was perfect for the four of us. Although not huge, the apartment is well-equiped and luxurious. We were certainly pleasantly surprised. Everything you need is nearby and the city centre is only a ten minute walk.
All in all, a lovely apartment with even lovelier owners! I would definitely recommend visiting this apartment and would most certainly go there again myself!
Thank you Pablo, Belén and Paula!
Enchantés par cet appartement bien équipé, agencé et situé mais surtout par l'accueil avec conseils touristiques et échanges sympathiques en francais impeccable : à recommander vivement.
We are so pleased we visited Salamanca, not just because we have Salamanca Place in my home city Hobart, Tasmania, but because of its wonderful features and friendly people. The weather was damp and overcast but it didn't stop us getting around and even out to Arapiles where the British and French battle actually took place in 1812. Pablo and Belen's apartment is very central and very easy access to everywhere. It is small even for 2 people and has no view but is modern and new and has everything you could wish for. Pablo was very informative and helpful and had the apartment warmed for our arrival and a lovely baked cake just out of the oven!
Well, you are big guys, more than 1m80 high, maybe used to bigger spaces :-) ... It's the first time two people have found it small, and rarely four people have found it small too, one could check it reading every evaluation ... :-) And yes it has no view, but the patio is bright and quiet, not facing the street.
Anyway, thank you sincerely for having chosen us and we wish you the best!
Thanks to Pablo and Bélen, we had a wonderful time in Salamanca! They were indeed superhosts as they welcomed us with a delicious homemade cake. Pablo was very thoughtful in explaining the main sights of the city and their tips were 100% approved. Salamanca is one of the most beautiful cities we ever visited and we would definitely come back and stay again at this apartment. It is fully equipped (just as it appears in the photos) and the neighborhood is very quiet at night. The location is also very good as it is just a 10-12 minutes walk from the Cathedral and other sites. There are lots of stores, restaurants, and bars nearby.
Pablo and Belen are wonderful hosts...Belen met us at the bus terminal to help us arrive at the apartment. The communications were excellent. The apartment itself is exceptional. Pablo and Belen provided us with lots of information about things to do, and even brought us a cake!
Salamanca is as lovely as our host Pablo. He greeted us near the apartment after we were running late and proceeded to help us park, carry our bags and escort us to the apartment. The place was very tidy, as advertised.
Would recommend this place to anyone headed to beautiful Salamanca.
