Hotel Rice Reyes Catolicos
Ranked #32 of 50 Hotels in Burgos
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The exterior and signage had us a little scared when we walked in, but we had a delightful room. There were 2 tour groups in the hotel, so as independent travelers, they gave us a suite for a regular room price. It was large and very comfortable. We ate our meals there and while not gourmet cooking, were quite adequate. Parking was a couple blocks away in an underground garage, but relatively inexpensive. We would stay again.

The hotel is located in a residential area not far from the center of the town (a 20 minutes’ walk). The exterior of the hotel’s building is unsightly and you would never imagine it could house a four star hotel. Even the Mercure sign of the hotel is difficult to distinguish being very small, look for the big yellow sign HOTEL which is evidently the old sign of the previous name of the hotel. It used to be Rice Hotel before being acquired by the Mercure Hotels. While the exterior is not impressive everything changes inside the building. The interior décor reminds an hotel of the end of the 19th century. Marble everywhere, green and golden handrails, sculptures, prints of the last century, mahogany furniture, dark wooden floors, bright lights in the aisles, music in the rooms (in the bathrooms as well). The breakfast room has the same nice style. Unfortunately there is a major fault you don’t notice at once. Being an old structure the rooms are not soundproof and the noise coming from other rooms (or even from people walking along the aisle) could be disturbing if you happen to be with many other guests in the hotel. I think very few rooms have an external view, most have a not nice internal view. The hotel parking is a short drive away.

Very easy to find hotel when you drive a car; close to "Old Town" and shopping area/ restaurants of Burgos when walking. No set aside space in front of the hotel to stop a car for luggage unloading without double parking, or having to pay at the parking meter if you arrive after 16:00 hour. (4 pm).
Very professional and efficient receptionist staff, well fitted uniform, good english willing to answer twice to the same question without being annoyed.
Hotel is very clean with an unexpected (surprising) level of room decoration, antique furnishings in public areas, and expensive ceiling, wall and floor finishes including bathrooms, by U.S. standards.
One exception though, the double bed was a "torture bed" for me, the most uncomfortable bed out of five hotels and two private residences that we stayed at in this trip to Spain.
Overall very good value for the money.

The hotel is close to the center, it is in a nice neighborhood, we were able to park right in front of the hotel and we found the restaurant to be a very good value and very good food. We only stayed one night and we had all our meals in the hotel. The room was not special but it served the purpose. The view from the room was to old buildings but the bed was very comfortable. The Internet (wifi) work fine. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This is our third visit the hotel, so we must be satisfied. Pleasant reception and well appointed rooms. We didnt use the restaurant this time as previously the food was not to our liking, but that is not a critisism,just a personal observation. Convenient parking outside when you are aware of the parking restrictions. Situated close enough to the centre of town and the Cathedral. All considered, we would stay there again.

We stayed at the Rice for only one night on our way to Madrid and thought the hotel was well located not too far from the historic center of Burgos - a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes on the bus (the stop is right across the street). The room was nicely furnished with new pieces, a comfortable bed with quality linens and a fully equipped updated bath with great towles. The room was on the small side and we couldn't comfortably store/access our two suitcases and carry-on bags and still easily walk around the room. Staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful with directions, restuarant recommendations, train station information and calling a taxi.

We booked through expedia. Brilliant hotel, excellent value for money, staff very friendly and helpful. Mini bar and restaurant not over priced. Car parking very easy outside hotel on street (cost varies). 15 minute leasurely walk to main town with cathedral. Found great snack bar just other side of river about 5 mins walk down side road called Pecaditos, Spanish for small snacks. mostly 1 euro including the beer and wine. Take a left outside hotel and cross bridge further along and its just off the side street there. Will definitely come again.
