“High quality hotel in superb location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2011

We weren´t expecting to stay at La Perla because we´d actually booked into the 3 star hotel La Maisonnave. So it was quite unexpected when we were upgraded to stay here!
The location was unrivalled within Pamplona, right on the main square, surrounded by beautiful backstreets full of Pintxos bars and tavernas.
The room itself was superb, very clean, spacious and with an impressive wetroom.

We would highly recommend this hotel if you´re looking for a luxurious getaway in the heart of Pamplona.

This famous hotel has a legacy, overlooking the city main square. As an hotelier, I knew while staying an overnight in Pamplona this hotel is a must. After the renovation, preserving the old atmosphere of the old veteran La Perla, the hotel is a jewel. Our room was fantastic. Big and specious with a balcony to the Ansiero street where one can watch the San Fermin Bull Run in summer.

The bed was great, the bathroom was an adventure and the entire stay was something to remember, thinking of Ernst Hemingway staying in a room above you many years ago.

Just minor things to improve – a duvet blanket is much more appropriate in this kind of a hotel instead of the wool one. The automatic lights are too complicated to handle and when you wake up at the night to go to the bathroom the whole corridor is suddenly full of light. But – it is a must hotel for visitors to the city.

Go for it.

This hotel is newly refurbished with exceptional facilities and decor. Centrally located on an impressive central plazza it was where Ernest Hemmingway called home during his twilight years. The gentleman who greeted us when we arrived could not have been more pleasant and accomodating of our needs. The price was very reasonable given the experience.

I'm one of the rare Americans who did not visit Pamplona during the running of the bulls (actually, I was in Navarra on business) and found La Perla to be an excellent smaller hotel with history to boot. It's smack in the middle of the city plaza, half a block from the Cafe Iruna and the start of the corrida. I understand it has been renovated a couple of years ago, and all to very good effect. We stayed in the Aga Khan Suite, which was huge, modern (aesthetic is minimal), spotlessly clean, and had a gorgeous bathroom with two showers and a delicious soaking tub with great amenities. Turn-down service was lovely, with strawberries and bottled water by the bedside. We also thought the restaurant was terrific (the food in Navarra is by and large EXCELLENT): both lunch and breakfast were good. Can't speak to the service during the Feria but found the front desk, restaurant and wait staff to be very nice and helpful with smaller business requests.

Arrived in Pamplona as the 4th city of my 34 nights/36 days Spain tour 2009.Traveled by car from Zaragoza.Easy acess to the city,but as the hotel is in the main square,all pedestrian zone,you have to call them when you arrive to open the "obstaculo".Asked a nearby hotel to phone,they open and I entered the Plaza del Castillo.The hotel location couldn't be better,right in the main square.
As the San Fermin feast would start monday july 6,the city was already full of people.
Front door person took care of the car.Check in fast and efficient.Standard room(402) was ok,with very good towels and bed clothes.Very good room service,turndown every evening,small chocolates,thick bathrobes(by the way 2 robes,1 thicker to use after shower and the other thinner...a special touch I've NEVER SEEN BEFORE.).Free wi fi in the whole hotel.The room is sensorized,when you enter the lights turn on.
Very eficient,professional and friendship staff,they help you in every matter you need with a smile.It helps because I speak spanish,maybe...As a frequent traveler,I always ask for restaurant reservations,best place to have coffee,where is the best shopping area...but they exceeded my expectations...they even found me a person to repair my shoes in the weekend!!!!!!!!!Even the breakfast is "a la carte"but overpriced( 25 euros plus 7 % tax).Check out efficient.The only thing to complain is the almost 200 euros daily rate for a standard room without breakfast and parking.

Just got back from a truly fantastic weekend wedding in Pamplona, was recommended to stay at La Perla as it had just been opened following a refurbishment and how fantastic it was! We could not find any fault, the staff were all so lovely especially the bi-lingual pretty receptionist. The rooms were stunning and attention to detail second to none. Set right in the square it really was the best hotel I've stayed in for a very long time and excellent value for money.
