A little disappointed.

In many ways a lovely parador. Lovely building inside and out. Friendly staff. However although hungry unable to get any food from the cafeteria ( as they had run out ) or from the restaurant until 8.30pm.

Magical place

In the beautiful Olite, the most impressive location. A "parador" full of character, perfect for a night stay to get to know this beautiful medieval town. Large rooms with classic decor, only for those that enjoy sleeping in a building full of character and history. It was a magic stay for us, could not recommend enough,

Nice hotel. We didn't get a room that was part of the original castle but still a nice room. Quiet. Cute town. Many bars and restaurants nearby. Castle next door is a must see! Breakfast not incl with stay @ 16€+ ea!

The Parador was outstanding. We had one of the terrific rooms in the old castle - comfortable seating area, twin canapy beds, and a fire place large enough to stand in. Very large bathroom and dressing area. The room and the public spaces were very comfortable. The staff gracious. We had half board - dinner was extraordinary good. Daniel the waiter wonderful. This was a high point of our two weeks in Spain. What a great property.

Excellent hotel. Only downside is there is no parking and the hotel can be hard to find. Amazing besides that.

Living in History

Posted Jul 22, 2015 on Hotels
Experience a parador in Spain is essential and completes one's taste of the life and living the history of Spain. The Parador de Olite, located inside the walls of the historic town, is grand and offers a sense of the elegance of life a long time ago. The restaurant would not disappoint and waiters are very helpful. The room is large as is the bathroom.....essential to American travelers. The only draw back is the age of the bed. It could be better. The small town is historic and the bodegas offers lovely riojas.

A Castle fit for King and Queen

Posted Jul 14, 2015 on Hotels
This is a wonderful facility in a quiet little town about 20 miles from Pamplona, a 30 minute drive or 45 min by bus. The Parador is actually the original quarters of the King and Queen of Navarra, completely restored with all the modern amenities but maintaining that unique antique castle mystique. The service is, well, fit for king and queen. The rooms are a bit small, but remember it is a 500 year old castle. They are very clean, the WiFi works well and you have DTV with access to US News Channels. The plaza in which it is located is like a draw-back to the 14th century, surrounded with old stone buildings. The Castle next door is a must visit; you will be enchanted with its architecture and scenery. A unique photo opportunity site. The restaurant is better than average, which in the Basque region equates to a 4 star anywhere else, and the breakfast is superb. Around the corner from the Parador is a small Michelin recommended restaurant named "Merindad de Olite" where you will be treated to a superb gastronomic feast. They serve one of the most unique pork dish ever tasted,they sandwich the perfectly seasoned pulled pork between two thin sheets (almost looked like cookies) made of pork crackling; outstanding! The tranquility, scenery and friendly service makes the Parador de Olite a unique romantic get-away choice. I highly recommend it.
