This gorgeous new B&B is more than a boutique hotel than a B&B (as they call themselves). It is located in Vitoria, which is in itself a great little town from where to travel around in the region, as San
Sebastian and Bilbao are both less than 2 hours away.
La Casa had only been opened for a month when we were there last week
and the place looks stunning, plus they have special opening rates of 70 euros per room at the mo.
It is located in the 2nd floor of a medieval building, in where it used to be a taylor's workshop; which is respected in the deco and in
the hotel's info provided. The building has been restored to its glory with solid wooden floors, exposed stone walls, etc; but with all the mod cons of today. They offer 8 rooms from what I could see in their website. Beds are huge and linen impeccable. Towels the fluffiest we have ever tried. Bathrooms are gorgeous (ours was huge with even a dresser inside!) & toiletries smell delicious.
A continental complimentary breakfast is offered: coffee/tea, yoghurt
(activia), freshly squeezed orange juice, toast & croissants. This is served in a common room where during the day you can help yourself
to a fridge stocked with cold drinks (water, beers, juice); and where
you can find books to read, cds & cd player and wifi access.
The building itself is a bit tricky to find, although very centrally located: it is located at the end of arched balcony of a huge historical building; from where steps descend to the Plaza de la virgen blanca and the main square of Vitoria. Most bars are around the corner. And though quite charming, be prepared to be waken up by the several bell towers surrounding the building!
The staff is genuinely friendly, but bear in mind it is not maned 24 hours: we had the keys to the building and there was no-one at the desk at night.
For the price this is a true gem, really well-thought place with a luxury feeling; you wont regret staying here. I highly recommend them
and can't wait to be back :)
