Hotel El Emperador
In Parador of Hondarribiayou will feel that you are back in the Middle Ages.
Thick stone walls, arches, armour and spears adorn this castle which was
founded in the 10th century by the king Sancho el Fuerte of Navarre in the early days of the Christian re-conquest.
The defensive appearance of the thick walls conceals a magnificent interior. The immense naked stone of the courtyard stands out, as do the beautiful views of the French coast and the sea which may be enjoyed from the splendid terrace or from some of the bedrooms.
Charming nooks and crannies, spaces adorned with arches, wrought iron and coffered ceilings surround the guests in an atmosphere of indescribable beauty. Lances, cannons and armour make up the interior decoration offering an air of historical elegance.
Go for a stroll around the fishing neighbourhood of Hondarribia. Also

3 miles away from the Parador.

|My wife and I (of mature years!) thoroughly recommend the paradore at Hondarribia. We received a very friendly reception from a delightful lady at the desk and the room we had was of a high standard. Dinner is not served, but at breakfast there was a very good choice and we enjoyed it. There are a number of restaurants in the old town and more in the new part. We were advised of a restaurant close by which proved to be excellent. There are uplifting views of boats in the harbour and fine views across to France.|

|Hotel parfait, Très bonne réception, petit déjeuner copieux, manque toutefois un ascenseur du parking à l'Hotel et dommage que dans un tel Hotel, les WC ne soient pas séparés de la salle de bains...|

|We stayed one night at this wonderful Parador and were so impressed by its grandeur and position with stunning bedroom views over the bay and on to France. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful; the breakfast was perfect in a lovely setting. So far one of the nicest Paradors we have stayed in and we will come back also to spend more time in the very pleasant town and surrounding area. Next time we will know to park freely in the streets just below the Parador and use the convenient public lift to access the hotel with luggage rather than attempt the tricky hotel parking.|
