“Best Place in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The hotel is modern and centrally located (but not on the main street). The rooms are generous in size and come with an air conditioner, TV and bar fridge. The bathroom was well appointed and the towels were large and soft. The concierges were extremely friendly and helpful and one of them spoke very good English. Breakfast was a buffet style that included freshly squeezed orange juice but the coffee from an automatic machine was a little disappointing. From our walk around the town this hotel was easily the most modern hotel around. Recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stayed here for 1 night whilst walking the Camino. The rooms though small were spotless, but for me the staff were the highlight. All were so polite & friendly it felt like a family home. There is no restaurant in the hotel ( though a continental breakfast is served downstairs); there is a restaurant 50m away offering good food at very reasonable prices.

This is a stay we really enjoyed. The rooms have everything you could expect from a hotel in this category including a/c and a mini bar with reasonable prices. But the staff really made a difference. All of them were very service minded and helpful. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but there are plenty of them in the neighbourhood and we were given good advice on restaurants as well as other things from the hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Everyone we dealt with was helpful and very pleasant. They are a stickler for their rules which is easily understood for the numbers of people they deal with. No restaurant but provided great recommendations and easy to follow maps. Location on the Camino was excellent and very easy to find.

Stopped here last week for one night during our Camino. Greeted by Pilar, who greeted us by name and welcomed us incredibly warmly. She is possibly one of the nicest ladies in Spain! She ensured we knew all the nice places in town to eat and even lent us her umbrella in case it rained. She made my daughter feel incredibly special and grave her a wonderful bracket as a gift the will be treasured. The room itself was quiet, immaculate and a true haven along the Camino for a midway treat (although it wasn't expensive). I cannot recommend hotel Benilde high enough.

We stayed at Casa Benilde in early June 2013 and loved it. Francisco, Pilar and other staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional, and took every effort to ensure even the smallest detail was right for their guests. We had five-star treatment at this very reasonably priced hotel.

Stopped for one night on our Camino walk. After walking in the rain all day, Francisco met us at the door and took our rain ponchos and hats from us. He explained that he would lay them out so they could dry. This is even before we checked in. He was so welcoming and helpful, despite the language barrier.
The rooms were clean and the shower had plenty of hot water, which is what we wanted after a bone chilling walk in the rain. It was quiet and comfortable. Francisco gave us all umbrellas when we left for dinner. The next morning he escorted us (and each successive guest) to the salon where the breakfast was served. He raised an ordinary hotel experience to an extraordinary experience.
