Accommodations

“travel broadens the mind”…. I certainly do agree! The problem is that we dogs aren’t accepted everywhere. Therefore this site, ‘cause although it isn’t always easy to find a suitable place to stay, nothing is impossible!
You’ll find campsites, B&B’s, hotels, rural houses or apartments….whatever suits you and your human fellows best.
Like always, they expect us to be calm and behave. But,…. I expect this won’t be a problem. I never met a dog so far who was drunk, didn’t want to pay the bill or took away some towels as a souvenir!

As I live in Spain, at this moment I’ve got more possibilities in Spain than elsewhere. Please do join in, if you know appropriate accommodations in other countries as well as in Spain. Of course only places you hardly recommend as this is a non-profit site and not a way of free publicity just because.

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 The furniture again is a bit outdated as well as the bathroom installations as you do hear quite well when someone in another room has to go to the loo.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!

Casa del Patrón is a hotel located in the centre of Murgia a little town near Vitoria-Gasteiz with lovely houses surrounded by nature. Our family got a heart-warming welcome, although there were the three of us, me Winter with my charming daughter Audrey and our friend Summer (Border Collie as well). They even kept our home cooked natural food in their fridge during our stay (all well sealed of course).

This accommodation offers fourteen rooms all exterior. Seven are located on the second floor of the building and the other seven in the charming attic, with sloping ceilings and large windows from where you can watch the stars. All rooms are fully equipped. There are no additional costs for us dogs.

Surrounded by a variety of squares and parks with plenty of space and grass to go for a walk and potty break there are a lot of walks to explore around. The restaurant doesn’t allow us to enter, but you can join your humans at the beautiful terrace. Andrea and Javi had their breakfast there while we were with them. Another option is to stay meanwhile in the room, no restrictions here either. If you’re not happy to wait alone in the room you might want to wait in the car, as there is a garage for clients to park. We felt a 100% at home and I can definitely recommend this place. We will come back for sure!

**La Casa de Patrón is situated near the National Park of Gorbea and the “centro educación Canina” (dog training facilities specialised in herding) of Oscar Murguia where you can take herding classes as well as others.

Woof-Woof, my name is Nimbus, and I’m a gorgeous Border Collie. I’m a real traveldog and this time I’m going to tell you about a great Apart-Hotel called Punta Cabicastro situated in the province Galicia of Spain. It was my second time already, ‘cause both my human friend and I feel very welcome here.

This hotel is located in Portonovo, 150 m away from the beach “Canelas” where dogs aren’t allowed. But although we can’t join our humans at the beaches of Sanxenxo and Portonovo, not far away in O Grove (about 20 km / 30 minutes by car) you’ll find two dogfriendly beaches called “O Portiño” and “O Espiño”.

Besides the excellent and (dog-)friendly staff this hotel has a lot to offer. Facilities such as a playground for children, activity programmes, swimming pool (outdoor/indoor), private parking, restaurant, bar, garden etc. Have a look for more details at their website or Facebook. A great place for the whole family!

They do charge extra for us dogs but my human friend doesn’t mind. It’s worth our stay. We are allowed to stay in the apartment as long as we behave well. As I did, sometimes I took a nap all by myself. We aren’t allowed to accompany our humans at the swimming pool nor the restaurant. But we are welcome at the reception with bar. We can play in the gardens, actually I always found a ball there, stroll around at the outdoor areas and you can use the lift. I prefer the stairs but that’s just me!

Woof-Wooooffff, Nimbus.

**There are lots of walks and sights around. Have a look yourself at their website.

Stay: 27th – 28th Dec. 2014

Set in the commercial and cultural heart of Bilbao, Hostal Central  might be one of your best bets if you travel low-budget with your pet.

This time, I didn’t stay overnight here with my humans. I just dropped one of my humans of as she had to get an early plane the next morning from the airport. But after this experience I guess, she’ll let me stay next time, too!

We got a real warm welcome, I guess the owners are really fond of animals as they told us some anecdotes about other guests and their pets. The rooms are very basic, but clean and with all facilities you might need. There’s even a coffee machine in each room (coffee, tea, biscuits) for humans!

I was allowed to walk around at reception and the best was, that this guesthouse is so centrally located. It’s a 10 minutes’ walk from the Guggenheim Museum, and the Concordia Train station, just 240 meters to the closest Metro station “Moyua” as well as the Bilbao Airport transfer bus (The Airport is about 15 minutes away).

My humans specially loved the central location and that we (pets) are allowed on request, without extra charge.
I hope I can come on their next shopping trip to Bilbao!
 ** There are plenty of places to eat out nearby. Numerous bars, restaurants as well as supermarkets can be found within 6 minutes’ walk. It’s only a 10 minutes’ walk to the Guggenheim Museum. Public transport possibilities close by.

Stay: Nov.2016

Three star hotel Santa Cruz is situated just a walk away from the centre of Cangas de Onís in a quiet area with nice views, next to the chapel of Santa Cruz and the Dolmén from pre-historical times.

Besides offering accommodation you can also enjoy the informal atmosphere of the café/bar or having a meal in the restaurant “El Dolmen” which offers local cuisine in a cosy setting. Homemade food with local products such as the well-known and highly recommendable “fabada” but also the local meat and fish dishes are a good bet.

Best of all is that we, dogs, are welcome too. There’s an additional fee of 10€ per dog/day, which according to my humans is a lot, but honestly we did get a treat! In our room we found a big water bowl for two, a smaller bowl for each of us and a big, nice cushion for each of us too. Me, Tibor and Tessa were thrilled! When humans make a reservation with pets, they’ll be asked about your weight and size, but only to make sure they’ve got the right size of cushion for you, a nice detail!

At breakfast time, feel free to wait in the room for your humans – no problem! Our humans told us that breakfast was nice with a wide range of local products. They enjoyed it.

Just behind the hotel you’ll find a park with a playground for children. Because of the latter it isn’t advisable to do you needs here, or walk around off the leash. But besides the park there’s a nice walk along the river too. Very recommendable and you’ll be able to do your thing. Of course our humans should clean up afterwards.

** Situated near the National Park of Picos de Europe in Asturias. Access to places such as the Covadonga lakes, Sotres, Cares gorge walk… . Besides the connections to the main roads to Oviedo, León or Santander are near, as well as the airport of Asturias which is just 1,5 away.

Pradillo Conil is a modern style hotel situated just a short 10 minutes walk from the town centre of Conil de la Frontera with its beautiful beaches such as La Fontanilla and Playa de El Roqueo as well as many excellent restaurants and terraces.

The hotel offers absolute tranquillity and lots of facilities for our humans such as a large sunbathing area, chlorine free swimming pools and a lovely garden area providing them the perfect place to relax. We, dogs, are welcome too although we aren’t allowed in the public areas. I, Nimbus, got a very pleasant treatment from the staff.

Here some information about us pets, who are allowed under the following Policy: ”Your pet can not stay in public areas, must be in the arms of the owner or strapped, for reasons of respect for other clients. The pet cannot stay in the room alone for reasons of respect for the cleaning staff, except during breakfast hours, when the pet can be left on the balcony of your room. You must provide a number of credit card as a guarantee in case of damage to the room. Our goal is for our customers to rest, both the pet and the rest of the people are respected and everything is for the good rest and coexistence of both parties”.

My human friend really enjoy the location, the atmosphere and special familiar attention. There’s free parking too. She had to play a supplement for me, but we can’t remember exactly how much that was, I guess about some 10 €/day.

I enjoyed every single moment being with her. Exploring new places, enjoying walks and simply having a great time.

**Situated at only  a short 10 minutes walk from the town centre its perfect to combine the calmness and peace of the hotel with a nice variety of activities in its surroundings. For example sports such as surfing, horse-riding or golf etc. There’s a wide range of restaurants and bars where you’ll be able to enjoy the fantastic local gastronomy.

Woof-Woof, my name is Dana, Husky from Valladolid. This weekend they took me to Ourense to Casa do Mosteiro.

Here I met the best host you can imagine: Rus a handsome and playful Border Collie. We couldn’t stop running around the hills, the garden, the house…. . I felt completely free, no leash, no forbidden areas. I only had to look out for the ticks in the mountains which didn’t bother me too much as I was well protected.

The Casa do Mosteiro offers five double rooms, one of them adapted for people with reduced mobility. There’s a kitchen, dining room, a common area and terrace. All rooms come with a private bathroom, own entrance from both inside as well as the garden, heating, TV, hairdryer… so to say all our humans might wish for.

My humans didn’t have to pay extra fees for me and I had the time of my life…. such a shame that I had to go back to asphalt and concrete. Both of us had a bad time the first days after our separation. Rus got over it by playing with the lawn sprinkler and I did my best to get over it, running next to my human-mum’s bike. I can’t wait to get back. Hopefully I’ll be a lucky kid soon, ‘cause I really was a good girl!!!

Woof-Wooooffff, Dana.

Hotel Emperatriz III, is a four-star hotel, perfect for those who want to take a break or simply enjoy their variety of facilities and have a rest. It’s a privilege to have a choice of multiple possibilities within walking distance of the hotel situated close to the city centre of Salamanca.

Like always I, Nimbus, was in charge to keep my human friend, and tutor Ana company. She’s great finding the perfect location where we dogs are more than welcome too. The staff treated us nicely and made us feel immediately at home.

Our room was wonderful and spacious. We found a welcome-card on the bed with some sweet for humans. Look, I posed with it so you’ll get the idea! My tutor loved the room with all its details. And I’m always fine, when she is!

Great as well is, that there are no additional costs for us dogs but you do have to tell on forehand that you’re joining your humans. Children are not allowed to stay in this establishment.

The only disadvantage is, that we aren’t allowed to stay alone in the room neither we have access to the common areas such as the restaurant and cafeteria. But fortunately there are plenty of options in the city of Salamanca to go dining or visit bars for tapas.

I enjoyed Salamanca a lot. Nowadays it’s a fantastic, sparkling city especially because of its university and cultural life. In 1988 the city became on  UNESCO’s World heritage list. Nowadays it’s a city of national as well as international interest. Definitely worth a visit. According to the wide range of tapas bars, the smell is really nice in almost every corner of the city! It’s more or less a 25 minutes’ walk from the hotel to the city centre.

**Hotel Emperatriz III is situated in the city of Salamanca, part of Castilla y León located in the West of Spain with Zamora in the North and Cáceres in the South, Áliva in the East and Portugal in the West. Also close to Madrid, about 210 km.
