1. Re: BullRun.. need advice. Balcony and hotel

The only hotel along the route that is available would be the 5-star GH La Perla. Rooms with balconies overlooking the route start at around €850/night + tax, with a 4-night minimum stay required during the opening days of the fiesta.

There are other options. You can purchase a tour package from an agency or tour company, which typically includes the hotel, balcony reservations and other services, our you can book the hotel and balcony on your own. It's not that difficult. You just need to know where the hotel and balcony are located (www.pamplona.net).

It will all depend on your budget and how involved you want to be in festival. Some tour companies are better than others and some packages are better than others. Some of those offering festival packages are licensed, others are not.

We have a balcony for 5 persons booked on Dead Man's Curve for July 13. We booked with www.bullbalcony.com for USD$110 each.

I spent alot of time researching options and was so very pleased with these lovely people who live in Florida part of the year.

We booked a hotel near the University (this is about 20 minutes outside of the town) for a very reasonable price. Sercotel SUITES MENDEBALDEA

As an update, NO WORD from BullBalcony after sending 3 separate emails. I wouldn't give them my money even if they were the cheapest because they are totally unresponsive!

Going with Pamplona Posse. Looks like a blast and the guys have been really accommodating and helpful.

Everyone have fun and be safe!
