The title of my review is a bit tongue in cheek as it took us over an hour to find the Hostal Acanto. The irony was that, although we had sat nav in our car, I didn't make a note of the number of the hotel in Calle Victoria, which turned out to be the main street running through Burgos, and at least a couple of miles long. We first turned right into it, in the town centre, then realised our mistake, turned left and drove right past the hotel, which is quite difficult to spot, but after we ended up in open country we realised our mistake!
Anyway, when we eventually found it, and parked in the underground garage which is around the back, we were very impressed with the standard of accommodation. In my opinion, the decor was 4 to 5 star, though it didn't have the little extras, toiletries etc you normally associate with this standard. Also, I was under the impression there was air conditioning, though we couldn't find any controls and it was a little on the warm side. If you are intending to stay in the summer, I would certainly check this out. Also, let them know in advance if you require parking as the hotel has limited spaces.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast perfectly adequate. I would certainly recommend it for an overnight stay - we were travelling from Santander to Malaga.
The hotel is some way from the centre, but as others have mentioned, there is a regular bus service. We felt like stretching our legs as it was a fine evening, and it took us 35 minutes to walk to the Plaza Mayor. The centre of Burgos is enchanting - I loved the avenue of pollarded trees. Don't miss the statue of El Cid and the beautiful cathredral. There were loads of restaurants to choose from, many of them offering regional dishes.
