“Calm in Craziness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

The NH Iiruna is a perfect contrast to the craziness of San Fermin. Located approximately 20-30 minutes by foot from the town center (several buses run by the hotel frequently*), it provides a nice haven from the nonstop noise of drunken revelers. Although a bit dated on the exterior, the hotel is clean with a nice lobby, and the staff is very sweet and accommodating. The hotel lacks some basics like an in room coffee maker (free coffee is in the lobby), iron, gift shop, and pool but it is very functional for those looking for a safe and friendly place to relax after the early morning bullrun and evening partying. You will hear noise from other rooms like doors closing but that's about it. Unfortunately, Wifi access is atrocious as with 3 devices we were never able to get on the Internet.

If going for San Fermin, be warned that you will need to leave this hotel at approx, 4 to 5 am to "try" to find a spot on the fence for the run. The best way to watch (and get some extra sleep) is to buy a 6 euro ticket at the arena where you'll not only see the run on the big screen but watch the live crazy crowd dodge the bulls following the run. This was way more fun and comfortable - perfect for those traveling with kids, groups, and older folks.

*Tip: Walk to burn off the sangria and churro calories.

Nice, simple clean hotel, for our San Fermin visit. The staff was friendly, and multi lingual. This hotel is a 20 minute walk from the heart of the festival, which is good... Close enough to the action, but far enough that you don't have to deal with the drama that closer hotels have!

Room Tip: Go higher if you can, there is traffic down below and the view is better up high.

We stayed in NH hotels in both Vitoria and Pamplona, Spain and were not disappointed, both were great places to stay. Before we left the States on our trip someone told us not to get too excited about the European breakfasts but, I got to tell you, the breakfasts we ate at the NH hotels were huge; and, included in the price of the room. The rooms were great, modern and well layed-out. Not exactly spacious but comfortable. The NH hotels made you feel secure and well taken care of--friendly staff in both locations ready to help their customers. Both hotels were centrally located and made navigating the city easy. I will be going back to the NH hotels in these 2 cities when I return to the Basque Region of Spain.

As a business traveller, I often end up having to stay in chain hotels. Along with Sheraton, NH hotels rank bottom of my list.

Free WiFi! Which, at 128kbps, is practically unusable. Especially when tagged with the 100mb download limit. So, expect to pay €10 for something better.

Breakfast is €17.50 for a pretty abysmal affair. Out of maybe 25-30 tables one was clear this morning. I recommend the hotel hire more staff. Allowing the buffet and coffee machine to run out of milk is a poor show.

Staff...I'm a fairly worldly chap...however, I don't happen to speak many foreign languages fluently. Which is a shame considering the restaurant (which doesn't open until 2030) didn't have any English speaking staff on duty on the 4 evenings of my stay.

Overall, very disappointing. Won't be on my shopping list next time I'm in town.

Poor show again NH!

A throw back to the 90's and I am surprised to see that this hotel has not been refurbished being in a fun town like Pamplona. Good underground car park. Hopeless overused lifts, quicker to walk up or down stairs. Good spread at breakfast but two very slow coffee machines makes for a few cross caffeine addicts queuing. Bathrooms are completely shot, horrid. Free Internet that actually worked well.

I have stayed at the hotel several times I have no idea they had such small rooms. Breakfast is first class, staff stern, plates and cutlery hidden underneath the serving table, which make want to eat with your hands on a piece of paper not to face th staff with a question. Same with one of the receptionist, the rest very helpful and kind. The fact that I am staying during a somewhat chilly spring -not for me- I was informed that ac will not work until the summer starts somewhere in July, which means you are awoken to the sound of the garbag collectors everymorning intersepped with lovely bird singing and all other sundry noises of the morning. I recommend the Iruna Park, just make sure you do not get 821

Room Tip: Avoid 821 and all 21 I presume

Info:
Stayed here for just under a week on business.

Pros:
- Very broad breakfast selection.
- Spacious, comfortable room.
- Welcoming staff.

Cons:
- Underwhelmed by the standard of restaurant food in the hotel, particularly for the price.
- Room décor is a little tired.

Other:
There's an Irish-themed bar (better than it sounds and not at all Irish thankfully!) just round the corner which my colleague and I found very welcoming!
