Grand Hotel La Perla

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Pamplona’s grand dame opened in 1881, and has hosted every celebrity to the city since. Rooms are classically elegant and extremely comfortable, decked out in a mix of contemporary and antique design, (top choices are the Hemingway or Royal Family suite).

All have views over the Plaza del Castilla (party central) or Estafeta Street (where the bulls run) which make grabbing one during the fiesta almost impossible. There’s a gourmet restaurant, guided visits to the Hemingway-themed room and superb staff. If you can swing it, there’s no better base for enjoying all Pamplona has to offer.

Surrounding area

Located in the heart of the picturesque old town, the Casca Vieja, the hotel overlooks lively Plaza del Castilla, the historic drawing room of Pamplona, where much of the action happens during the San Fermin festival but also throughout the year.

All the sights, and scores of restaurants and bars are in walking distance; traffic is banned from the historic centre, but you can park in front of the hotel and use their valet parking.
