Palacio Guendulain

****

The opulence of the 18th century meets modern luxury at Palacio Guendulain, a four-star jewel illuminating the antique heart of Pamplona. Originally built in the 1700’s by Don Sebastian de Eslava, Viceroy of New Granada, Palacio Guendulain has remained a prominent fixture of Pamplona’s historic quarter. For over two hundred years the palace served as the residence of a noble family before being converted into a royal palace for a few days when in 1845 it housed Queen Isabella II and the members of her royal court. Today the palace lovingly serves as a luxury accommodation featuring 25 exquisite guestrooms with views of the city’s Consejo Square and the hotel’s internal courtyard.

The hotel’s spacious and regal guestrooms are outfitted with the most modern of conveniences, including large flat screen televisions, complimentary wireless Internet, minibar, and sophisticated, modern bathrooms showcasing fixtures by Álvarez Gómez. The hotel’s restaurant, located on the ground floor, provides diners with splendid views overlooking Consejo Square and serves seasonal cuisine with a distinct focus on the traditional gastronomy of Navarra and the Basque Country. In a joint partnership between Palacio Guendulain and Taittinger Champagne, the hotel offers the swank Bar Taittinger where guests can relax and enjoy their favorite cocktail or glass of champagne in an atmosphere of cool elegance.
