ACCOMMODATIONS in SPAIN
Hotel Norte y Londres**
Stay: 12th September 2017
Woof-woof, It’s me, Tibor again exploring interesting cities for you all! This time I told Tessa and my humans that I would be thrilled to see where my brother Zoë was living as he moved to the outskirts of Burgos. As my birthday was up to come, they fulfilled my wish!
We found a nice two star hotel Norte y Londres , situated right in the heart of the historical centre of Burgos in the pedestrian area at Alonso Martínez square, just about 150 m away from the famous Cathedral. Foundered in 1904 it’s the most antique one of all the “Posadas” along the Camino de Santiago. The impressive hall decorated with antique furniture sets you back in time.
The best of the hotel was that we got the most heart-warming welcome you can imagine. The receptionists were paying so much attention to Tessa that she was even allowed to put her paws on the reception desk, something they never let us do anywhere. Put honestly, she’s great being cute to get all the attention.
Our humans were very thankful about the friendliness. Our room was OK, clean and with everything you need. The furniture again is a bit outdated as well as the bathroom installations as you do hear quite well when someone in another room has to go to the loo. Therefore the price is great, keeping in mind you’re right in the centre. The hotel offers a special parking ticket for the public parking at Plaza de España or you can park somewhere around in the streets.
There is no extra charge for us dogs and there is a nice little park for your potty just in front of the hotel.
** There’s lots to see and visit in Burgos city. Some of the nearest landmarks from the hotel are the San Gil Church, Museum of Human Evolution, Cathedral, Plaza Mayor square, Art Centre Caja de Burgos. If you fancy a nice run and you’re into meeting some other furry fellows I would recommend you to visit Fuentes Blancas Park about a 5 minute drive from the hotel.
***Unfortunately Burgos policy on dogs being able to visit restaurants and bars is very strict. You’re only allowed outside at the terraces. During Summer and when the weather is fine that’s OK but you might want to avoid the rest of the year. Definitely not the most dog-friendly city I’ve been to!
