I stayed at Meson del Cid for two nights. I booked via Expedia when I got my airline tickets. I assumed I would be given a room with a view. The front desk lady spoke very little English. I took the room that I was given and it did not have a view of the cathedral. I was not offered a view of the cathedral and don't know why. That's why I stayed there. I was very tired, however, so just took the room I was given; it was on the fifth floor (room 504).
I was not told that there was a restaurant on site. I had no idea. I wish I'd known!
The bed was comfortable. The a/c was not working. To cool the room, I had to open the windows and even on the fifth floor, the noise from the street below was tremendous. I arrived on a Friday and the nighttime noise...really loud. This is party central (and wedding central).
The wifi was terrible; I usually went to sit in the courtyard in front of the hotel in order to access wifi. This is not very convenient when a wedding reception is going on or when it's night and I'm in my jammies.
The bathroom door handle is one of those that if you accidentally walk too close, it will cut your arm. I bumped it twice. It's been almost 2 weeks and the injuries have not healed. I then wrapped a towel around the handle to prevent further damage to my arm.
The bathroom was spacious enough with a bidet. The bathtub had mold on the wall above it and the grout...a bit grungy. Otherwise, no complaints.
I slept well...but then, I took a sleeping pill on top of being exhausted.
It's an average hotel with an excellent view. I would stay there again if in Burgos...but would get a room with view on as high a floor as I could get (because of the noise).
