Hospes Palacio de San Esteban, Salamanca

A luxurious piece of history

Housed in a restored 16th-century convent in the historic heart of Salamanca, the Hospes Palacio de San Esteban combines timeless Castilian charm with smart contemporary luxury.

The Hospes Palacio de San Esteban encompasses two buildings from two different centuries. The former convent that houses the hotel was built at the height of the Salamancan Renaissance by Dominican Friars. And they constructed it on the site of an older monastery where Christopher Colombus once paid a visit. 

The main 16th-century building comprises the restaurant, front desk, rooms, and features vaulted ceilings, exposed natural wood and thick walls of Villamayor, a golden sandstone quarried from a neighboring village. The adjoining mid-20th-century building, meanwhile, houses four more floors of rooms. The hotel’s restaurant and library are located in the convent’s original kitchen and wine cellar.
