Fernando Población Iscar

Overseen by local architect Fernando Población Iscar and carried out by Madrid-based construction firm Grupo Veintidos, the hotel’s meticulous restoration preserves many historic details and integrates original materials, such as Villamayor stone, a variety of golden-hued sandstone quarried from a neighboring village whose shimmering patina ornaments the facades of many of Salamanca’s historic monuments.

An inspired restoration

The Hospes Palacio de San Esteban is housed in a former convent built in the 16th century at the height of the Salamancan Renaissance by Dominican Friars on the site of an older monastery where Christopher Colombus once paid a visit.

Interior Design

Monastic elegance

The Hospes Palacio de San Esteban encompasses two buildings from two different centuries. The main building, built in the 16th century, comprises the restaurant, El Monje, the front desk, deluxe and suite rooms, and features high vaulted ceilings, exposed natural wood and thick walls of Villamayor stone. The adjoining mid-20th-century building, meanwhile, houses four floors of elegantly outfitted standard and superior rooms.

The hotel’s common rooms, including the restaurant and charming library, which houses its own bar, are located in the convent’s original kitchen and wine cellar and are imbued with this historic ambiance.
