Formerly a Gothic-Renaissance monastery overlooking the Rio Arlanzon, the Palace de Burgos is now an attractive four-star hotel.

Stylish, earth-toned, contemporary bedrooms have wooden floors and comfy beds that come with a pillow menu. Many have views over the river or nearby cathedral.

Staff are very helpful, and there’s a beautiful glass-roofed cloister, gourmet restaurant, tasty buffet breakfast, gym and sauna, and private parking in the garage below. If you like old stones and creature comforts, you won’t go wrong.

The Palacio de Burgos could hardly be more central – it’s right in the town centre. It looks out over the tree-lined river, and faces a busy street and main bus route (convenient if you arrive by train), but once inside you’ll hardly notice any noise.

The beautiful Arch of Santa Maria and the Cathedral are just a couple of minutes’ walk over the pedestrian bridge, along with a wide range of restaurants and bars.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
