I was recently back in Pamplona getting things ready for Spyns July running of the bulls packages and stayed at the Albret. The hotel is part of our budget Pamplona tours because its rates are less expensive during the festival. During the bull run festival you pay for proximity to the city centre and the Albret is located farther out of town (about a 25 minute walk or 10 minute taxi ride). If you're looking for an old-world hotel, you'll likely be disappointed with the Albret because it's quite modern. While modern, it has the biggest rooms and bathrooms I've seen in Pamplona. My room was a standard double and the bathroom was huge with both a shower and tub. The rooms are always very clean and the bathroom was spotless. I stay in a lot of hotels and find that the manager makes a huge difference in the service quality. So I was happy to see Alfredo, the very capable manager, was still working at the hotel and I recognized a number of familiar faces at reception. Check in was fast and efficient so they've maintained their high service standards but my favourite feature by far is breakfast. I am a true breakfast snob and am always astounded at the size and variety of the Albret's spread. There are eggs, sausage, cereals, cakes, fruit, yogurts. It's a bit like a cruise ship breakfast buffet. I'll be staying at the Albret during Spyns Pamplona tours this summer and am looking forward to it. One negative is noise. If you're a light sleeper, the hotel is adjacent to a busy road/roundabout so if you're a light sleeper, you should probably request a room on the upper floors or facing away from the road. Other than that, excellent value for a Pamplona tour.
