January walk

Greetings all. I had to cancel my October hike and was going through some withdrawal from not being on the Camino. I have decided to be on the Frances for a couple of weeks in January. I have some questions concerning that time on the Camino. I am wondering if I could get some feedback from those who have walked in January. This will be my fourth walk and so I am not a "newbie", but have walked in the past in either October or April.

I am fine with the weather and fewer pilgrims but am a little concerned that, when checking out Gronze etc. There seems to be a lot of accommodation closed at the end of October. Have those of you who have walked the Frances in December any tips ie: "there was always something open if I did some research and stayed in larger towns" or "I had some difficulties and had to walk a long way some days to get a spot to sleep. I am adaptable and feel as long as this isn't super difficult, I will be fine. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Anyone have personal knowledge of a reasonable hotel, in the vicinity of the Camino, in Pamplona. Hotel Eslava, where I usually stay is closed for Chistmas in the first week of Jan.
