“Great bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2009

The Hotel Jacobeo is located smack in the center of Burgos, next to everything. The room and bathroom were of an adequate size and both spotless. Our bed was very comfortable and there were NO fleas or bedbugs anywhere! The staff went out of their way to help us, especially Sara and Angel. This hotel is a favorite of pilgrims walking the Camino to Santiago. As a matter of fact, book your room in advance because they are usually booked solid. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

The El Jacobeo was a very pleasant, small hotel in a good location, just on the edge of the historical district, but within walking distance of all tourist sites in Burgos. It is on a pedestrian street, but if driving, you can drive to it and unload luggage. The hotel also has parking in an underground garage about 1/2 block away.

The hotel is "old fashioned modern looking" with a small reception area and a lovely breakast room. There is no elevator, but going up one flight of steps was no problem for us. The place is very clean and neat; the rooms were adequate size with a room safe and new beds, but the bathroom was small with somewhat thin towels, but served our purpose. We asked for a quiet room in the back and there were no disturbing noises at all.
The cost for two per night was a very reasonable 50 euros plus 7% tax. Parking was 12 euros per night. The hotel serves a continental breakfast buffet for 4.50 euros which was not worth the price, although you could get refills on coffee/tea which is rare in Spain. It would be better to go to a nearby cafe and have an inexpensive desayuno (breakfast) of juice, pastry and drink.

The staff working the reception area were outstanding and professional. One in particular, Mocio, was very helpful and pleasant.

  • Liked — Staff, location, price, parking
  • Disliked — Small bathroom, thin towels
  • Tips/Secrets — Easy to make reservations directly with hotel using the internet

Found this very central hotel in the French Michelin Guide, booked a room and was surprised to see on arrival that it is a one star hotel. I cannot understand why! Small but spotless room, private bathroom, super location, friendly staff, breakfast. They even had a parking space in a car park further along the street. I highly recommend it and don't be put off by the one star rating. It's definitely a two and a half star.
