Arriving in Pamplona

Greetings: I will arrive in Pamplona somewhat late in the day and spend at least one night before taking off on the Camino. Should I book a room ahead of time somewhere, or just wait until I get there? I want decent but not too expensive accomodations to rest up before I head out ...

If you are arriving in Pamplona anywhere close to 6th - 14th July - San Fermin - you won't find anywhere to stay within a 20km radius of Pamplona.
Any other time you should'nt have a problem. Have a look is San Nicolas - a little pedestrian lane that runs off the Plaza del Castillo and has dozens of pensiones, hostals, hotels etc.
Have a wonderful walk.

I'll be long gone by San Fermin! Thanks, I'll have a look at the area you mention ... :wink:

hi Johnnyman,

I too arrive late in the day in Pamplona. I suggest you book into Hostel Hemmingway. It is €19.00 for a bed in a six bed dorm.
