This was our last night in Spain and we certainly left on a high. This was mostly because of the lovely owners who treated us as special even though their English was about on par with our Spanish. Our room was spotless, with a huge bed, frige and secure parking. The shower was especially good. We had a meal in the restaurant at night and were treated to an entrée - "on the house" -which melted in the mouth, followed by interesting monk fish and delicious dessert. We have fond memories of Vitoria as a result.

The rooms are all beautifully wood panelled and very modern. Secure parking makes the hotel an ideal stopover. It's a safe, straight 30 min walk into town for bars and restaurants (although we did pass a few more quiet ones on the way).

Our bathroom smelt of stale cigarette smoke, but otherwise, this hotel was great for a stopover and much more comfortable than your run of the mill budget hotel at the same price. Would definitely recommend.

Our overnight stay here was following other TA reviews and we have nothing much to add; agreeing with all the positive reports. We had cycles and so it was easy to get in and out of the old city from the Araba, otherwise there are plenty of buses. Secure underground parking here is €8. The restaurant side of the business - evidently longer-established and very popular - is closed on Sunday evenings but they opened and served us supper specially; much appreciated, and very well priced wine list. Bedroom was well above average in terms of comfort and fittings and the free wifi worked well.

Small hotel with a nice and moderm design and very friendly staff. Rooms are quite large and inmaculate clean with all the commodities that belongs to a higher rate hotels. Excellent price for a single room, 60 euros per night. Breakfast not included but just 5 euros that includes a small buffet with come pastries, fruit, bread, olive oil and tomato. Diner was a bit expensive, 30 euros for one cod salad and a cup of tea, but then again the salad was EXCELLENT.
My room was on the first floor at the end of the corridor, and the WIFI did not work in my computer. The room before mine did not have the same problem. In all a perfect hotel for bussiness.

Very clean and new hotel, if you have a car perfect location to go everywhere.
Also it is giving the chance to discover beautiful Vitoria. At nights it is so lovely to stay in the square of the town.
Very friendly owners as well. The breakfast is 5 euros including fresh orange juice, but still I found it poor.
The town is not very centric but we visited all surrounding cities from Vitoria. Like Pamplona, San Sebastian and many other villages.

Hotel araba is a family run hotel. The two brothers are very friendly and kind. Despite that they don't speak much English, they tried everything to help us including giving us suggestion for things to visit in the city, offering us breakfast even though it past breakfast time. Because the hotel was newly opened, one brother was still getting himself familiar with the system in the computer under the guidance of the elder one, which we found very nice to see. It showed how much they cared about their business.The room is new and comfortable. The air-co works very well and the wifi is very fast. The bed is very comfortable too. The hotel is not located in the city center. It's about 20 mins' walking distance from the center. We had a car then. So it wasn't really a problem. If you don't have a car, there is a bus stop just next to the hotel. We were happy that we stayed there. No noise, whatsoever, to disturb our sleep. The hotel is also of good value. We paid 60 euro for the room (I believe it will be even cheaper if you book in advance.) and 5 euro pp for the breakfast buffet.

Only a pity that the hotel restaurant is closed and will not open until september. We've read that the restaurant is supposed to be very good and wanted to give it a try. Maybe next time then!
