On a height just north of the Casco Viejo, this comfortable 4-star hotel combines a convenient central location for sightseeing, only minutes by foot Pamplona’s buzzing heart, the Plaza del Castillo.

Occupying a 19th-century convent on a cobbled square, it’s a top boutique option, and one of the best for families. Rooms and suites  are bright and contemporary, with big windows, many offering  spectacular views over the city; west-facing rooms get the lovely sunsets.

There’s a small garden at the back of the hotel and a chic all white restaurant in the former chapel, plus valet parking (and  places are limited, so best to reserve one when you book). Bikes are available to hire if you feel like a pedal into the country.

Surrounding area

Set back from a quiet street, the hotel is near the Puerta de Zumalacarregui, the gate into Pamplona. The pedestrianized and one-way system of the historic centre make driving there a challenge; study the map and suggested directions on the hotel’s website before setting out.

The immediate vicinity is an older residential area dotted with churches and various institutions, but it’s only a three-minute walk to the Cathedral, the city’s main covered market, the Mercado de Santo Domingo and six minutes from Plaza del Castillo with an abundant choice of pintxo bars and restaurants.

Cafe Iruna

Cafe Iruna

Pamplona, Navarra, Spain[0.3 miles]

For Hemingway fans, a drink in his beloved Cafe Iruna on main Plaza del Castillo is a must; he’s still there in spirit, with his statue jauntily holding up the bar. It’s a charismatic old bar (founded 1888), with lovely views over the square, but a magnet for tourists.
