“Small and pokey. Over-priced even for a two star hotel.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2010

This is not a B&B/Inn as listed on TripAdvisor. It is a basic, no frills hotel.

The room: we paid €68 for room 11. It was small with minimal furnishings. This room was right outside reception and heard the phone ringing which disturbed us a bit.

The hotel: felt like a basic two star hotel. There is a restaurant but we didn't eat there. You can’t park your car within the town walls, but there is ample free parking about 200m away.

The service: not overly impressed with the service. Staff weren’t overly friendly and spoke poor English at best.

The location: located within the old city walls, the hotel is within 200m of the main town square. Olite is a quaint old town/village, a nice place if you’re after quiet and no tourists.

The conclusion: small and pokey. Over-priced even for a two star hotel.

As the paradore in Olite was booked out I opted for this hotel instead. Glad I did as it is one of the loveliest hotels I've ever stayed in. If you like homey, immaculately clean, welcoming hotels with individually furnished rooms as well as pleasant, obliging service (and a great breakfast) then this is a perfect choice. The town itself was one of the nicest old walled towns I've ever visited - few tourists, lots of locals (including a great public pool which my kids loved) and loads of atmosphere- helped along by Spain's win in the world cup. However, if you have large rooms/hotel chain expectations do them a favour and stay somewhere else.

I stayed in this beautiful little hotel for two nights. The hotel is inside the old medieval town of Olite, and my room had a balcony with a view facing the monastery and countryside, as well with a view of Olite Castle. The room was clean and nicely decorated, although not huge. The hotel is small, no elevators, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They don't speak a lot of English but we managed with my bits of Spanish, and they called a friend at 10:30 at night to help translate my particular request.

Breakfast was included in the very interesting, ground floor, stone walled dining room, and was a typical Spanish breakfast with good coffee. They don't serve lunch or dinner, but there are a number of nice restaurants nearby.

Wifi was available in some rooms or in the comfortable reception area lounge.
