Villares de la Reina, Salamanca

Not your average Sawday’s choice, but we loved the eccentric owner, the relaxed vibe and the rather hectic pop art. Comfy beds too


11 rooms

Extraordinary! This is definitely not up our usual street, and way out of the comfort zone of many. But who could resist the fun, the quirk, the originality and lively, well-travelled Juan Carlos? Architecturally it is interesting: the unusual structure with large windows floats over a garage forecourt near the motorway, for all the world like a stranded ocean liner. The attention to detail inside is absolute, from coloured loo roll to match the bathroom tiles, to 24-hour bar snacks and advice about the next leg of your journey, and a gift paper bag for you to fill at the shop. Bedrooms are not huge, but well-designed and each has a theme with photos and decoration to match. Workaholics can use the bar or cafeteria, stacked with travel books and locals dropping in to buy bread or have a coffee, so there’s much movement and bustle. Those who want more than a snack can nip to PizzaPizza, where the puddings are homemade and walls are covered with pop art. Sawday fans may be surprised but they will be very comfy and well looked after – one nighters are welcomed and it’s a great stopover for those travelling south.

Fantastic, out of the ordinary hotel which was great for a stopover on the way to Portugal. Spotlessly clean, simply fizzing with colour and style and with such a warm and friendly welcome from Juan Carlos. He has thought of absolutely everything! We will definitely go back and stay at Resotel again next time we are passing.

Very interesting hotel that is immaculately clean. The rooms are a good size and its an easy few minutes into the Center. Juan Carlos and his team a very special people. We are already planning our next trip back!!
