Rising out of the greenery of Taconera Park, this is the luxury option for a family holiday. In one direction, the wildlife and greenery of the park await, and in the other, the old town of Pamplona stretches before you. A sparkling, chandeliered lobby sets a tone of modern elegance, continued in each individually designed room. Bagging a room at the top means sweeping rooftop and park views. The pool terrace features a kidney-shaped swimming pool and a bar for snacks, while the elegant bar inside has live music on certain nights.

    A location outside of the city centre keeps this flashy hotel’s price tag happily low. It’s a good choice for families with little ones in tow, as triple rooms and junior suites have more than enough room for a travel cot. The design is modern and sleek, and there’s an on-site gym and sauna. But it’s the location that sets this hotel apart; peaceful and quiet to the south of Pamplona, it’s a 10-minute drive into the centre, and a bus leaves from right outside the door every 20 minutes. There are also plenty of restaurants and a shopping centre right next to the hotel.
