“Far from the maddening Hemingway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2009

An unpretentious 3 star hotel 20 minutes walk west from the city centre and opposite a nice Japanese-style park. Our room was not large but comfortable enough and with big sky park views. The bathroom was a little cramped, with an excess of opportunities to bruise yourself getting in and out of the shower. Pamplona (our first visit) was disappointing. Perhaps it was the "August effect" but the old town had surprisingly little "marcha" (the best is perhaps around C/San Nicholas and towards the bullring) and lives too heavily off it´s Hemingway-fuelled reputation for bull running. Actually, apart from its brief moment of madness during San Fermin, the town seems staid, with more banks than bars. There are, however, several nice parks and some of the urban architecture is superb.

We were visitng for the running of the bulls and this was perfect. Far enough from the old city that we had virtually no noise. Close enough that you could walk (30 minutes) or ride a bus (15 minutes). Free on street parking in a safe area. Staff were very helpful in suggesting a viewing location for the running of the bulls. They also accommodated our strange timing - getting up at 4am and returning to sleep at 10am. And they let us delay our checkout time.

Stayed at the abba Reino de Navarra during San Fermin this year. The hotel is very well situated; it is in a quiet area which allowed us to sleep well at night, and yet within walking distance or a short bus ride of the festivities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was really impressed one day, when I saw a lady at the front desk patiently trying to find accommodations in the city for a group of sixteen (16!) who had just arrive without making prior reservations during San Fermin, no less. The rooms are regular hotel rooms quite comfortable, but nothing special. The bathroom is nice and they are very generous with the bathroom amenities. Very good breakfast. I strongly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel during san fermin a few times over the years, this hotel is ideal for the festival just far enough away from the party to catch some sleep and yet only a 5 minute walk to the fun. Very good breakfast and great staff, hope to return again this year.

This is my 4th trip back to Pamplona, in the last year, twice I have stayed at the Abba Reino de Navarra. I find the location excellent if your going to the University of Navarra, or the Clinic University, where I am getting vaccinated against my old cancer. I have stayed at higher price Hotels in Pamplona, but find this Hotel the best. The rooms are very clean, the small restuarant is very good, easy to park your car, and the very important thing, the Hotel is in a quiet area with good A/C, especially if you're jet lagged. The staff is very warm and friendly, and will gladly help you if you have any requests. The parque Yamaguchi is right next door, where you can cross and find some good local restuarants and out door cafes. The Hotel is close to the motor way, about a mile, and from this part of town its easy to find yourself around. If you want to go to old town, where its a little crazy, just jump on the No. 4 bus, about a 7 minute ride. This Hotel is my home away from home when I'm in Pamplona. By the way, there is a good local restuarant the Pils about 4 blocks away, and if you want the best beef in Spain go to the Casa Angel about 3/4 of a mile, they cook everything on a charcoal fire.
