“Good Stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We stayed for just the one night on our way south, the hotel is clean and the staff helpful.
As others have said reception staff speak english and the wifi is free, the charge was we thought at the top end for this class of hotel as we paid 123 euros for just a double room without breakfast.
We went out for dinner and found plenty to choose from only a short walk away, having driven all the way through france it was good to stop and chill out for a while.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable bathroom had all you would need with fresh white towels. Underground parking is safe and easy to get in and out of.

Room Tip: Try and do a deal on the room rate.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

I have stayed at this hotel regularly since September 2007, but have never reviewed it until now. The hotel is very well located, with less than a 5 minute walk to the Clinica Universata Hospital. It has casual and formal restaurants on the ground floor, was well as a car rental outlet accessible from the lobby. The front desk staff are friendly and can speak English. The hotel is clean and well maintained, with very good, quiet rooms. It has some items that are not found in this class of hotel normally, such as a bidet and a telephone in the bathroom. It lacks some things I have come to expect in a North American hotel, such as an alarm clock and Kleenex. It has the Spanish version of a convenience store within a block, as well as a pharmacy, fast food outlets and other restaurants within a 10 minute walk. It is close to a main highway and about a 10 minute cab ride from the airport. Public transit is right outside the front door. Overall, I would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Pamplona, particularly for North Americans who do not speak Spanish.

Room Tip: Better Internet on 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th floors.

Hotel Blanca de Navarra is modern, clean and comfortable. My room and bathroom were large enough, room-service made a cleaness everyday at the right time (when I was absent). Breakfast was ok, staff on reception was helpful and speak English. WIFI internet is free and stable, I only should take another pass when 24 hours online was reached.
What was negative:
1) hotel is quite far away from the center;
2) I was there on sport event and restaraunt served dinner for us very late in my view (at 22:15). Also, all sportsmen should eat at the same time and service was quite slow. But maybe if you are individual guest you will not be affected by this problems.
Resume: not perfect but good hotel. Generally recommended.

We stayed at this hotel as it was part of a conference. I would not have paid the going rate for this hotel, as it is not worth it. The room was a bit shabby, the housekeeping B minus, and it's a fairly long walk into town - really 40 minutes before you are at the centre of the old town - don't believe when they tell you different. The hotel is on a main drag and very noisy, so you have to keep the windows shut tight, and the air conditioning is also noisy and super-cold. The cafeteria downstairs has excellent food and is a meeting place for locals, so recommended should you find yourself here anyway. But there are probably better places to stay in the beautiful city of Pamplona.

If you work with the University of Navarre as I do, then this hotel is perfect. Of course you cannot expect top concierge or even bellhop services, but the people in the reception are helpful and very polite. The university is just 5 minutes' walk and the hotel itself is close to various establishments including a convenient china shop, the Europcar car rental (at the lobby), a good bookshop, and a good Irish pub.

I just had one major problem: the internet connection was quite poor. I use a Macbook Pro, a Macbook Air, and an iPad. Neither could connect to the wifi properly. It must have either been the router on our floor, or the ISP. In any case, the internet connection was fine in the lobby and in the bar.

And the bar service was great! The bar had previously won a prize for having one of the best pintxos in town. The 13th Pintxos Week just started last Thursday and the bar is once again in competition. Try one of their pintxos and you will be impressed and then ask Marian to give you the best wine in their cellar and your night is complete!

Nothing fancy, but a good place to stay.

My Wife and I stayed for 5 nites in October 2010. She attended a conference for nursing at nearby Clinica deNavarra Hospital, while I explored Pamplona on foot.
The hotel is a 20 minute walk to the Cuidedala (Citadel) Old City, Plaza de Toro, and lots of incredible "ancient" treasures to see. The hotel staff were very nice, and did thier best to converse with me (I speak very little Spanish) The breakfast was great, plentiful, and starts the day off well. Remember, most everybody shuts down at about noon, and returns around 4pm, for mid-day siesta. So, a noontime lunch is not always available in Spain.
All in all, this is a great city, friendly folks, lots to see and explore, and the hotel is nice, clean and comfortable. Take a bus trip to San Sebastian (Donostia) Its very reasonable, around 20 Euros round trip, and visit a beautiful seaside Basque city with many ancient sites to explore. Climb Mt. Urgull while there. Northern Spain is awesome, I can't wait to return.

Stayed one night here on our trip through Spain and France with our dog. As with many hotels pets were not allowed but the underground car park was perfect. Our dog loves the car and is quite use to staying overnight whenever we travel. It was very cold in Pamplona but the car was well protected.
The hotel is in a good location just a short stroll from the centre, and the rooms were spacious and clean. Would stay here again with or without the dog
