    Our opinion

    Palacio Guendulain is a sumptuous luxury hotel with a genuine sense of history.

    Hotel description

    Palacio Guendulain is a four star hotel in the heart of Pampalona’s historic old town, occupying a grand 18th Century building. Formerly a family home for over two centuries, the hotel was briefly the royal residence of Queen Isabel II in 1845. Today, a museum of beautifully ornate carriages marks the opulent history of the hotel and flanks its inner courtyard. Palacio Guendulain is maintained and decorated to luxuriously high standards, its staircase of shallow, pale stone steps spirals to the top floor whilst golden guilt furniture topped in marble embellishes its high ceilinged rooms. The 25 bedrooms are a welcoming blend of traditional and modern luxury. Displaying a simple elegance, the rooms are decorated in soft, pastel colours whilst wide armchairs and crisp bed linens offer guests the upmost comfort. A gastronomic restaurant, fit for the hotel’s previous aristocratic inhabitants, is of impeccably high standards and has been mentioned in the Michelin guide for the past 5 years for its succulent meat and sea food tied with the earthy and spicy flavours of the Basque Country’s cuisine. Head to the hotel’s rooftop terrace to relax in the brilliant sunshine or watch the dwindling sunset over Pamplona’s rooftops. Palacio Guendulain’s location makes it ideal for days spent exploring Pamplona’s old town, soaking up its history and culture.
