We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >
The two cities were very different in character but both enjoyable. We loved the relaxed atmosphere in Salamanca and the beautiful architecture. Madrid was extremely busy in comparison. Our main aim was to see the art collections of the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofía but we found it relaxing to walk in El Retiro Park and in the smaller streets of the old centre described in Walk 1. Although we found it very strange to eat in the middle of the afternoon, we did discover that the Menu de Dias offered a better choice of food at a reasonable price.
INNTRAVEL NOTE: These customers enjoyed our New Year break in Salamanca followed by our city add-on in Madrid.
Great holiday. Salamanca is a lovely and manageable city. Hotel Rector was one of the best we have stayed at and gave a great welcome.
