El Hotel Jacobeo
Ranked #44 of 50 Hotels in Burgos
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Very small dark room. Only window to light/air shaft on first floor. Room on ground floor have even less light. Breakfast very small. Waiter first refused to serve refill of coffee and tea arguing that breakfast only includes 1 cup, which is already a very small one. At times staffing at reception is very short with one person who also has to attend to breakfast guests. Noise protection is bad; you hear from your room everything going on the corridor due to wooden floor.

I cycling the Camino, I can confirm that this place has space for bikes.

Not a bad hotel, simple and functional with an average breakfast. Room was comfy and quiet.

We paid around €40 for the room which we felt fair.

By check-out they demanded 8% more because of credit card payment and the invoice. Without invoice and cash payment without any confirmation price was lower. The hotel is closed overnight, I had a problem to leave the hotel at 7.30am because the reception man was sleeping (snoring) and there was no chance to pay and leave the place. Dog was barking in next room all night.

Stayed here one night in August 2011. No complaints about the room and bed: very clean and comfortable. But beware of the manager. Didn't like his 'non-communication' style.

We asked for the pelgrims rate as announced on a sign opposite the hotel. Manager told us something that later proved to be the normal price. Price was given without notifying that a breakfast was included. When paying the bill it turned out that VAT was not included.

We found it very hard to find even with our sat nav and finding the carpark was a challenge. Having said all that we were more than pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. It was only a 5 minute walk from the Cathedral and great restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Don't forget to enjoy a Don Carlos 1 Brandy served up in a warmed glass at the end of the day!

The Hotel Jacobeo is located smack in the center of Burgos, next to everything. The room and bathroom were of an adequate size and both spotless. Our bed was very comfortable and there were NO fleas or bedbugs anywhere! The staff went out of their way to help us, especially Sara and Angel. This hotel is a favorite of pilgrims walking the Camino to Santiago. As a matter of fact, book your room in advance because they are usually booked solid. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

The El Jacobeo was a very pleasant, small hotel in a good location, just on the edge of the historical district, but within walking distance of all tourist sites in Burgos. It is on a pedestrian street, but if driving, you can drive to it and unload luggage. The hotel also has parking in an underground garage about 1/2 block away.

The hotel is "old fashioned modern looking" with a small reception area and a lovely breakast room. There is no elevator, but going up one flight of steps was no problem for us. The place is very clean and neat; the rooms were adequate size with a room safe and new beds, but the bathroom was small with somewhat thin towels, but served our purpose. We asked for a quiet room in the back and there were no disturbing noises at all.
The cost for two per night was a very reasonable 50 euros plus 7% tax. Parking was 12 euros per night. The hotel serves a continental breakfast buffet for 4.50 euros which was not worth the price, although you could get refills on coffee/tea which is rare in Spain. It would be better to go to a nearby cafe and have an inexpensive desayuno (breakfast) of juice, pastry and drink.

The staff working the reception area were outstanding and professional. One in particular, Mocio, was very helpful and pleasant.
