Not long now until our first anniversary and at Salamanca Suite Studios we certainly never thought that 365 days could bring so much! During our first year more than 6500 visitors of 40 different nationalities have chosen to stay with us. Yes, indeed, people from all five continents have stepped over our threshold. Which certainly goes to prove that, as we’ve said more than once, Salamanca is the most popular city in the world to learn the language of Don Quijote.
Achieving 88% occupancy is a real honour. But receiving your feedback and opinions is even more so. When we travel, we are all basically looking for the same thing: “discovering amazing new places and yet feeling at home at the same time”. And it seems we’ve not done too badly so far: 96 reviews on TripAdvisor mean that we are number one in the “Salamanca Speciality Lodging” category. This excellent rating is repeated on booking.com, where we have a score of 9.6 based on 794 comments.
The media have also received us very well. We’ve been featured on around 100 occasions during the course of the year: we made it onto the Condé Nast Traveller Hot List 2014, which features the year’s most “happening” hotels around the globe; also in Metropoli, the good living supplement to the El Mundo newspaper and its well-regarded travel blog “Ocho Leguas”. We’ve also been recommended by some of the leading women’s magazines, such as Elle and Marie Claire.
In addition to our commitment to providing our customers with the best possible service and treatment, is our unswerving commitment to the environment: we want to be a sustainable hotel and so we only use environmentally-friendly materials and amenities. And to art: Castilla y Leon’s best-known art gallery, Adora Calvo, has a small display space here with us.
The great reviews and accolades prove that all our efforts and hard work have paid off. As such, on behalf of Salamanca Suite Studios, we would like to thank our team for their outstanding work, our friends and suppliers for helping us keep our standards so high and, above all, our guests for choosing us. THANK YOU all once again!
PS: Did we tell you about the commemorative Salamanca Suite Studios cocktail that our friends at The Doctor have created especially to celebrate our first anniversary? Absolutely delicious! These guys are just amazing! Cocktail fans, watch this space… in a future edition we’ll be showing you how to make one!
