We visited Pamplona last year but just for one day during the Fermin festival and this year we wanted a better and calmer look at Pamplona - and what better place to stay at than Gran Hotel la Perla? It is right in the old town and with easy access by foot to all the sights and the narrow streets.... More

This hotel is the absolute best place to stay while in Pamplona (especially during San Fermin). The location is perfect in that the view onto Plaza De Castillo is the best for people watching and fireworks. The staff are unbelievably nice and friendly. They speak fluent English and couldn't be more accommodating. The room was like an apartment, spotless and... More

Grand Hotel La Perla is a small hotel, and may miss some of the amenities usually associated with a five star. But its location, right in the main square of the city is unbeatable. I found the staff exceedingly helpful and professional, and the whole establishment has history embedded in its walls. Among other things, you may experience Hemingway´s room... More

After walking 40km of the El Camino de Santiago yesterday, I hobbled into the lobby of the magnificent Gran Hotel La Perla at 8.30am and was welcomed by Maria, the receptionist. Maria not only had a room available for me immediately (for which I'll be eternally grateful), but also arranged for a physiotherapist to treat me in my room later... More

Good location (once you've arrived), decent rooms, everything is good (but nothing particularly outstanding). If you're arriving by car, make sure you have good directions. Our sat nav took us very close, but to the next square which was closed to traffic. So whilst we were about 50 metres from the hotel, we could not drive directly there. And once... More

Nothing negative to say and agree with the excellent reviews. I give it four stars because it feels like price gouging during San Fermin. The location is central, but having a view of the Plaza does not add that much to your enjoyment of the festival. Other than loud music, not much goes on there. The bull runs and fireworks... More

Stayed here for two nights in early July. The room was spacious, clean and luxurious. The staff eager to please and accommodate as well as helpful and informative. Fine continental breakfast with fresh bread. Highly recommend this hotel.

Maybe I was lucky because it was out of season and I was traveling solo but I scored fantastic, huge room for 140 euro. It was pure luxury and I had a balcony looking over the street where the bulls run. The service is impeccable and the location can't be beat. This is where Hemingway chose to stay afterall.

We stayed here one night as part of a road trip through the Pyrenees. We'd actually stayed here about 5 years ago before its reform. What a transformation. The room we were given had 5 balconies and was in a corner position overlooking the Piazza de Castillo. Staff were excellent & couldn't do enough for us. They even escorted me... More

4 star hotel-drive past bollards around the pedestrian only square-unless you have a local cell phone to call you have to stop partially in the street and have someone go into the Hotel Europa to call La Perla to get the barrier lowered-the hotel will park your car for you.
