“The Burgos Cathedral is right in front of your window!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Housed in a beautiful old building (not sure if it is historical house), the Meson del Cid was truly beyond my expectation (of a three star hotel). Antique furnished room and lobby provide an atmosphere of the past century. About my room, your single beds both with large windows right in front enable my friend and I to see the main square and the famous Burgos Cathedral while sitting on the beds.

Only problem was with the electricity - the room blacked out while when switched on the hair-dryer!!!

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the main square and the cathedral!!!

Undoubtedly the best hotel location in Burgos, Spain. Nearly every room faces the cathedral and the main square. Nicely appointed room with modern facilities, but quaint, quality furnishings. Staff speaks English and is very helpful. This is a small place, so advance reservations are a must.
I do not recommend eating here as there are dozens of great little cafes nearby with cheap, local prices. The hotel is in the old part of the city with lots of tourists, but just across the river is the modern town. Burgos is small. Take a cab into the town from the train station-- about $11 Euros-- and then do everything on foot. Easily walkable. Great place to spend a day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square. Old town area shuts down at night so there is no outside noise.

The hotel was a bit awkward to find. We moved from the room we were given as it had a small window set very high up and felt claustrophobic. Second room was okay. It overlooked the Cathedral. It was a quiet time of year (November) so not much choice of restaurants. We dined at the Hotel Restaurant which was a little staid!! Food okay. Probably wouldn't opt for this hotel a second time even though the view overlooking the Cathedral is great.

Room Tip: Overlooking the small square and Cathedral

If you get a double room overlooking the Cathedral square, you have a superb view of the cathedral itself in all the changing lights of the day and evening. The hotel is in a beautiful old building, clean, friendly, straightforward, nothing over-elaborate or pretentious within sight, and we spent a very good couple of nights in a comfortable, light, attractive room on one of the upper floors. We had a marvellous and ever changing view of all the lively comings and goings in the square. Good prices, no overcharging, a helpful staff and a substantial breakfast.

Room Tip: Make sure you overlook the square.

Burgos - what a wonderful, and easy to look around, town in northern Spain. We were very lucky to have a room at Meson El Cid that overlooked the Cathedral - it's magnificent and well worth a visit to Burgos. Breakfast - very nice. Burgos is a quiet spot and very enjoyable for a couple of nights. We dined at a little restaurant in the large square not far from the hotel - sorry, but can't remember the name of the restaurant but it is very modern and has a separate and very noticeable, fully glassed dining area outside the main restaurant, in the square - try their entre of salad/hot vegetables/grilled goats cheese.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the cathedral - it's a sight to behold.

After a prior trip to Burgos i really wanted to stay at this hotel.

Maybe we were just unlucky, we didn't book prior to our arrival on our return home in Southern Spain from France in September. It was my birthday and I intended to stay for 3 nights

. One was enough. We were in a horrid little room, bed like a board, no view and it stank, the strench came the bathroom.

I was up at 7am and checked out asap, just after 9am.

Maybe I just had a bad experience but Burgos is still wonderful

Room Tip: Do your homework

If Burgos is in your destination you should stay in Meson del Cid. I stayed just one night.
The staff members were always helpful ,smiling and i wished we had stayed longer.
The hotel is charming and the sensation of staying in front of the catedral is unique.
Special thanks to Carmen
Loved everything!

Room Tip: my room was 504 and it was great.
