Our next stop on our journey of Northern Spain, took us to Burgos. Our main objective here was to see the Cathedral of Burgos. A beautiful building, dating from the early 13th century, and designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1984. Unfortunately, we had only allowed one night in this most wonderful city!
Hotel Cordon is very conveniently situated, close to the Cathedral and other fine, historical sites, as well as an abundance of restaurants. These catering to a wide range of dining tastes and reasonably priced menus.
The hotel does not offer any parking spaces, it is on a walking street, but there is parking close by. Make sure that you scope this out beforehand. We didn't, and thus made something otherwise easy, a bit more difficult than it needed to be. We did eventually find parking close by, in an underground parkade, very suitable.
This a very attractive old hotel, actually quite elegant, and as stated, on what is just a pedestrian sidewalk. Our room was very comfortable, we had access to free wifi, everything was in order. The lobby staff were friendly and helpful, making check-in a pleasant experience. It must be said, this hotel is very reasonably priced, we paid for our Saturday night stay, 54,73 EU, (tax was included). A good value for the fine quality and location of this establishment. Burgos is obviously a great area to visit, for its value, as well as for its sites! Our breakfast was not included, so can not comment on price or quality, but judging from everything else, it would have been fine. And actually, on our way to the Cathedral next morning, we stopped in at a cafe for a very reasonably priced latte and a breakfast sandwich. A "local" thing to do.
All to say, our stay should have been longer, we were obviously too rushed, and our choice of accommodation could not have been improved upon.
Let me say, this is a wonderful part of Spain, well worth visiting. I wish that we had the time to visit the Museum of Human Evolution. Next time.
