As you know this is the Easter Weekend. You might try Booking.com to see what is available. I always stay at the Hotel Eslava. It is on the Camino, and it a nice quiet location. Perhaps others on the Forum can recommend an Albergue or two. Good luck and Buen Camino.

booked directly through Booking.com

I second Hotel Eslava if they have space. On the edge of the old town in a quiet area.

Two years ago I walked through Pamplona during San Fermin - so much more crowded than right now. I had a reservation at Maribel Roncal in Cizur Menor, but a woman that I met was able to get a bed at Casa Paderborn, which doesn't take reservations. According to Gronze, they have 26 beds.

Wow! Easter and arriving late? You really do need a miracle. Try the Pension Escaray in the old town and if she does have beds then keep her informed and she will stay up for you.

Always stay at the Hostal Arriazu. But good luck getting a room on such short notice.

It's already 8:40pm your time so I hope you found something. Had I been in your situation on this date I might have taxied into Pamplona around noon and then secured my accommodations first. Then I would have taxied back out that day to walk it or else the next morning. Obviously that adds to the costs but I would bite that bullet so I was not scrambling for accommodations in this place at this time in the dark, hungry and weary from a long day of walking.

Blimey! I have just now checked booking.com. Only place there with accommodation was Hotel La Perla. While I watched the price for a bed went up 100 Euro's in one jump - to 406 Euro for a bed!

Try the following: Albergue Jesús y Maria (€7), Albergue Casa Paderborn (€6), Albergue Ibarrola (€15), Albergue Iruñako Aterpeay (€14) ..I normally go through Pamplona to Cizur Menor to Albergue Roncal (€10).

Yes, it’s hard all over on the Frances. May you find a place to rest. It should get better after this weekend. Most of this last week took a great deal of planning and changing where we wanted to stay.

If you are arriving in Pamplona by plane you might avoid the city totally by walking southeast from the airport to Tiebas to join the Camino Aragones. Tiebas has two albergues. See them on this Eroski site >> http://caminodesantiago.consumer.es./et ... e-la-reina. After Tiebas walk west on the CA paralleling route NA-601 to the splendid circular Romanesque church at Eunate where the albergue is now unfortunately closed and then 4k further to Puente la Reina/Gares to meet the Camino Frances.

Buen Camino!

Don't know, but if you go as far as the Uni you might as well book somewhere in Cizur Menor. Which is probably best bet. I wonder how Noa is getting on! Hope they are ok
We stayed there in 2009. (Mirabel)
I remember that there was a new ‘wing’ being built, almost at right-angles to the main one. It was 3 storeys high, I think.
Was it ever finished?
If so, there must be lots of beds there now.

We stayed in the Uni dorms one night, on the way back (by train). The room had been booked the previous day, in SdC. It was a festival weekend and there were no other beds anywhere in Pamplona. There was a really helpful guy ... might have been a student ... who found us a single mattress for my daughter. She slept on the floor ... I had the bed. Like Uni halls-of-residence everywhere, the room wasn’t much more than 6 foot wide ... 😄
But, unlike my old uni room, it had an en-suite!! And a simple kitchen space .... luxury 😉😊

Yes ... I do hope they found somewhere to lay their heads last night ...

Hi Chinacat! I stay in Cizur Menor often when walking but always go to albergue Sanjaunista (the one with the big tower and Maltese flag), but not sleep inside the albergue but outside under the tower! I love it there, and the views back over Pamplona are great. So never stayed at Mirabels, though I have heard nothing but compliments from pilgrims staying there. Maybe one day, but I really like sleeping under the tower! And if you ask it is free!

If you are walking on the Frances from St Jean how would you connect to the Aragones?

To join the Argonese and
avoid the dangerous slippery climb up and down the Alto de Perdon due to deep mud you might consider this 'walk around' which I have often followed along back roads and eventually the end of the Camino Aragonese .
Follow CF to Cizur Menor then
from Cizur Menor walk SE on NA6000 roughly 14k to Campanas, then on NA121 SE to Muruarte de Reta on NA601 to join the Camino Aragonese. Continue W 10k to the splendid circular Romanesque church at Eunate and 4k further to Puente la Reina on the Camino Frances.
Buen Camino!

There is a tourist office in Pamplona, near the main square. Worst comes to worst, they may be able to put you up in some ones apartment.

Good luck.

Hi Davey!
A couple of people we were walking with stayed in the one with the Maltese flag. They loved it! There was something special about it ... the food, perhaps 😉
It was late September, and although the day was sweltering, I have a feeling that the night was rather cool ...
Your Tower sounds wonderful!
And it sounds as if it would have been a good refuge for Noa and his (?) companion. Is it sheltered?

Hi Chinacat. Oh I think that Noa has passed through Pamplona by now (He/She was arriving last Friday).

But concerning albergue Sanjaunista, it is a very basic albergue, but clean and very friendly (still run by the Nights of Malta - hence the flag). There is no evening meal there, you have to go and eat in the village , and a very good and cheap menu de perigrino can be had there. There is a very small kitchen you can use, and they do breakfast which is donativo.

As for the tower, to me it is wonderful to sleep there, it is covered also. But it is in a windy spot, and the floor is cobbled. I find this fine, many would not! Views are wonderful though. So are the local bat population you will be sharing with!

The church there (the tower is part of it) is unique and worth a visit also! Very nice!

But if you want a bit of luxury, I recommend Mirabels. However Sanjaunista is only 5 Euro's.
