“Welcome rest for a Pilgrim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Very close to the Camino de Santiago. In the center of every thing. Enjoyed soaking in the tub. Clean sheets and fluffy towels. The 3 Euro breakfast can't be missed. But... tall people should not stay on the 4th floor.

Estimado cliente, muchas gracias por compartir su experiencia en nuestro hotel, y dada su recomendación deberíamos aclarar que en el cuarto piso las habitaciones son abuhardilladas y los techos de los baños tal vez no sean lo suficientementa altos para una persona de gran estatura, lo que tampoco les impide disfrutar de un agradable baño en nuestras amplias bañeras.Un saludo

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We stayed here one night last September after walking the Camino from St Jean Pied de Port. This year we are back to start walking again for a further three weeks on the Camino and planned two nights to spend more time visiting the beautiful city of Burgos.
Lovely quiet rooms, very friendly helpful staff. You can get a discounted ticket for the museums at the front desk. Breakfast is ample. Rooms at the front of the hotel are cooler than the south facing rooms at the back.

Room Tip: Best room is the one pictured above room 309

Last room available at the inn. Large, clean "jr suite" available for 100 euros. Rooms lack character and have paper thin walls, almost like sleeping in a tent ant that's even with earplugs. Noise level on street below ten out of ten all night long and then construction very early in the morning. Room next to ours on other side of our bed we heard the baby cry, parents argue, toilets flush, water run... Well, EVERYTHING that went on in that room all night long. Was hoping for a good nights sleep after a long day of travel--this didn't happen.

We've never been in such a non stop noisy place in our travels--ever! Walls and windows need insulation and construction needs a curfew or we may have as well slept outside on a mattress.

Estimados clientes, lamentamos mucho que se llevaran tan mala impresión de nuestro hotel y que su estancia no fuera satisfactoria, ya que en general califican nuestro hotel como tranquilo. Respecto al tema de los ruidos, debo comentar que las ventanas tienen contraventana lo que aisla el ruido del exterior, salvo que éstas estuvieran abiertas. El tema de las obras lamentamos decirle que es algo que escapa a nuestro control, y sería algo temporal.Una vez más nos disculpamos por no haber podido ofrecerle un mejor servicio y esperamos poder darle la bienvenida de nuevo y cumplir sus expectativas.Un saludo

This hotel could not be in a better location! It is located in the heart of the city with an easy walking distance to the walking to the major city attractions.

The good
1. Hotel was really clean.
2. Great location
3. Most staff were helpful and friendly.

The bad
1. If you're driving by car you have to be buzzed in and drive on a glorified sidewalk. (There is a post blocking car access to the "road". Adjacent to it is a buzzer which is a call button which results in the pole being lowered. We are grateful to our two angels and the other kind stranger that helped us with this obstacle.)
2. The ac shuts off at 9 am sharp resulting in a warm room.
3. If you have long hair you may want to bring your own shampoo. The hotel only gives a small package which doesn't go far.

We enjoyed our time at the hotel and would stay there again on our next vacation to Burgos.

Muchas gracias por dedicarnos parte de su tiempo, dada la privilegiada ubicación de nuestro hotel en pleno corazón de la ciudad, en una calle peatonal, el acceso a vehículos está permitido tras pulsar un botón que se encuentra en el interfono, después bajan el bolardo y pueden llegar hasta la misma puerta para descargar su equipaje. Gracias un avez más por informar al resto de usuarios.Un saludo

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Burgos is a beautiful city.As pilgrims on the Camino, this hotel is very friendly, they gave us a 'peregrino' rate of 55 euros for a double room. After the hurly burly of the pilgrim hostals, our room felt like paradise, with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms that are all ours! ( in fact the floor was the shiniest I have ever seen)
We stayed just the one night, but because the hotel is so central we saw all the city within a few hours. It is near lots of good restaurants and bars.
We could hear late night revellers from our room, which was on the top floor (in the roof) but in Spain on a warm night it is normal.
We had a good breakfast, which is not included in the room price, but very good value for 3 euros- roll, toast, orange juice and coffee, they have other breakfasts at different rates

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of the hotel to road might be quieter (and dearer)

This hotel was very easy to find from the bus station and is in a great location to walk and see all the sights Burgos has to offer. The staff are helpful and polite and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast was great and the hotel is so close to large range of restaurants, I would definitely stay here again.

This is not the sort of place you will remember with starry eyes but it does the job. In the heart of the old town, good service, and comfortable rooms. The outlook from our room was a bit grim - into the service shaft. The room was a little dated but clean and serviceable. No restaurant, but plenty nearby.
