THE HOTEL History, legend, and exquisite design combine at 51-room Hospes Palacio de San Esteban in the heart of Salamanca’s old town. It is said that Christopher Columbus himself spent some days at this imposing former Dominican convent, which was built in the 1500s, while seeking the support of the Kings for his New World expedition. The guest rooms are an example of the Dominican heritage and the Restaurant El Monje and many of the rooms maintain their original construction. Although it has seen a revitalization, the old convent’s stone walls still whisper of legends and offer guests a tranquil haven in historic Salamanca. ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN Originally the Convent of San Esteban, built between 1524 and 1610, this grand structure is a mixture of ancient architectural styles from the end of the Gothic period to the Baroque. The recent transformation into Hospes Palacio de San Esteban has seen an added modern building, which houses many of the guest rooms. The Hospes Design Team has created elegant, romantic, and simple interiors that showcase the centuries-old Villamayor stone walls, rustic tiles, high ceilings, and ancient alcoves and cloisters of this unique structure, imbuing a romantic, majestic atmosphere throughout.
