“clean and friendly”
Reviewed October 9, 2009

The rooms were small but modern, with some nice features and ikea-esque furniture. Though the hotel was non-smoking, the room smelled a bit of smoke. The hotel itself was near a large mall with restaurants, but a taxi was needed to get to the city.

The only thing I didn't like was that they didn't provide toiletries as most chain hotels do. There was soap from a dispenser on the wall in the shower, which the concierge claimed was also shampoo, but it seemed to function as just soap.

The breakfast downstairs was great!

Signs everywhere warn guests not to take valuables into town because of incredibly high rates of crime, but the hotel does NOT provide safes in the room. Your only option? To hand everything to the desk staff for safekeeping in the main safe. We were carrying a lot of valuables and, as we checked out, the bag we had stored in the safe was snatched by someone we believe was tipped off. The general manager was very helpful and took us to the police station to file a report, but this is a modest hotel in a warehouse district and there was a reason the thief was waiting in the lobby when we checked out. (We had requested a taxi the night before, giving our time of departure.)
It is irresponsible of Holiday Inn not to have room safes when they themselves acknowledge the high rate of crime in Pamplona.

The hotel was out in the indutrial district and away from El Centro. About a 10 minute (max) taxi ride and about 20 on the bus. Not the place to go for the cultural feel for Pamplona but it was certainly comfortable, clean and functional. It was 3 times the normal cost during San Fermin, but that is every hotel in the city. The room was clean modern, and it was quiet for those needing to get rest from the festival. The staff was very friendly, the bus stop was about a 5-10 minute walk away. To our surprise there were taxis at the hotel in the morning dropping off late partiers, that we could take into town early for the running of the bulls. If you want a break from the action of the festival this is ideal, but no ammenities within walking distance. I would only recommend this hotel for a place to sleep during the festival. I would not recommend it as a place to spend your holiday during other times in Pamplona.

Yes it is out there but quiet especially during the festivities of San Fermin. It is reachable by bus (line 11 Galleria stop). It is a large room especially in European standards. Very modern. Helpful staff who gave us our Pamplona neck scarf and a great suggestion for dinner at the nearby commercial centre, open late. Ask for the map and recognize that the hotel is off the map so always take the bus or taxi there.

Being in Pamplona during the San Fermin Festival, we were not sure how close we would be able to drive into town with our rental car so we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The location was quiet - near to a mall and "Home Depot" and McDonalds. The hotel room was modern (IKEA-ish), very clean with a nice size bathroom and king size bed. The a/c was quite lackluster but the window opened and allowed for fresh air. The weather was quite cool when we were there.

A bus #17 picked us up close to the hotel and dropped us off close to the bull ring downtown, about a 20 minute trip. Everything in Pamplona was within easy walking distance. The hotel staff gave us complimentary red scarves for the festival which we noticed cost 3-4 euros in the town.

Closet space wasn't the greatest but we had a desk and fold-out couch in our room as well. Breakfast was complimentary but we did not have it. They were quick to order a taxi when we needed one. Over all I would stay at this place again - a very good value, especially during San Fermin.

  • Liked — Clean and quiet during a crazy festival in town.

Very New, Very Clean and Sharp! We were just in Spain with a private tour guide and she came upon this Hotel and we were anxcious to have something like "Home", that is USA, California. The service was excellent, Bravo and Gracias. We were only there 2 days, but the comfort level was great, easy to use phone service to call home, a McDonalds near by and a grocery store. All the commodities of home. I recommend it to anyone that goes there. Carmen Ortiz-Griffith, SF, Calif US
