Fodor's Review

The oldest hotel in Pamplona underwent several years of refurbishing before it reinvented itself as a luxury lodging option. Rooms are in plush pastels and have sleek contemporary lines, but several have retained their early-20th-century style, among them Hemingway's (No. 201, from which he watched the running of the bulls in 1924). The hotel founder's son, Lalo Moreno, was a bullfighter, and the mounted heads of two of his taurine adversaries preside over the restaurant.
