“Comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Stayed here having walked from Pamplona on the Camino de Santiago, hotel is well located for walkers not taking you away from the route when arriving into town tired. Hotel is in a lovely location in the older part of town - narrow streets & squares with small food shops, bakery and bars on the street. It's a rural hotel, nicely decorated bar and restaurant area with tables outside. Room was similarly decorated, clean & comfortable. Bathroom was clean and functional but tiny. As with most of rural Spain basic Spanish is a big help with check in/out and ordering food. Evening meal Menu del Dia was decent value while breakfast is the basic juice, tea/coffee and croissant/toast.

Room Tip: Very little noise despite rooms facing onto street & side alley. Not sure if the town is noisier...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

Hotel Rural Bidean is a convenient easy to find hotel in Puenta la Reina for peregrinos entering the town - just stay on the route!! Clean and comfortable with very good food and wine. The accommodation is a bit cramped if you are used to staying in 3 star or up. But "this is only the camino after all" and this hotel's accessibility and food make up for any feeling of confinement.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the external/street section of the building.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

After a gruelling walk in 40 degree heat from Pamplona, the welcome, the cool beer and the salads of home grown tomatoes and octopus on our arrival at the Bidean couldn't have been beaten. It's the real hub of the community, with locals relaxing at the little tables outside during the day and bustle in the bar during the evening. The restaurant was fab in terms of food, ambiance and decor - and dinner was included in the amazingly reasonable price for people walking the Camino. Breakfast good (a reappearance of the best rice pudding I've ever tasted which he had the previous evening). Could not recommend more.

3 friends and I stayed in Hotel rural bidean while walking the Camino de Santiago. The rooms were spotless. A little less of artificial room freshner would be recommended. Food was excellent. Great value and great variety in tapas. Breakfast was equally good. Very Quiet. Would suggest paying on arrival if you intend moving off early next day.
