We stayed in the pretty little town of Covarrubias for one night and chose Hotel Dona Sancha on the basis of reviews. Very glad we did. The hotel was easy to find, had good free parking and is a very easy 300 metre walk into the centre of this delightful town. The rooms were nicely decorated, super-clean, the beds and... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay here, due to the attention to detail given by the owners who never seemed to stop working! We arrived in the late evening sunshine, and enjoyed a couple of cold beers on our balcony. What a change to find that the mini bar price was only E1.20 a can! The decor was appropriate... More

We didn't really know anything this hotel, we just wanted a hotel in Covarrubias. What we got was a fantastic room, big and spacious with a nice big bathroom. We had a balcony overlooking the lovely countryside. There's a nice garden out front. The breakfast was good, plenty of parking space, reasonably priced bike hire. This hotel had everything. We...

Modest but clean hotel close to the centre of Covarrubias a charming small town 30 minutes from Burgos; good base to explore the area historic sites. Good service, nice breakfast and quiet nights. Covarrubias itself warrants a thorough visit.

On our way to Covarrubias we pulled up to the side of the road to watch a flock of vultures. Unfortunately our car got stuck in the mud. To our surprise, one car after another stopped to help us and eventually someone pulled us out. The people in this area are very, very helpful and kind! As is the owner... More
