Our Hotel for Running of the Bulls – Hotel AC Cuidad de Pamplona
Close but not too close, Marriott-owned 4-star hotel
I recommend the Bucket List Events group for the Running of the Bulls. They had the whole experience down to a science. The hotel they used is probably one of the best during the fiesta. Not too loud and crazy from all the party goers.” – Vlad, 2016 Client
What made Pamplona Tours choose the hotel that is part of each package?
It’s been a fine tuned process that we believe is the best of both worlds. Hotels located within the party areas are often congested and sleep is hard to find. Our 4-Star hotel, the AC Cuidad, is a Marriott property located less than a mile away from the heart of the festivities, but far enough away that uninterrupted slumber is obtainable.
The hotel has recently been renovated, boasting a modern design, good-sized rooms and high-class comfort. There is wi-fi available in the lobby at no charge, as well as public computers with a printer for guests to use. A new workout room was added in 2013.
This is also the hand chosen hotel for many of the matadors and bull fight officials during the San Fermin festival. You can except to see a few of these local celebrities during your stay!
Hotel AC Cuidad Location
Here is how we will phrase it: It’s close and within walking distance to everything in Pamplona, but it’s not too close to the point where the nighttime parties will keep you from sleeping. Trust us, this is something you will completely understand once you experience the San Fermin. The walk from the hotel lobby to the heart of the festival takes 15 minutes.
Also, since you are located just outside the chaos, restaurants and bars surrounding the hotel are not slammed like in old town. We have some great recommendations for all types of food, all in the neighborhood.
It’s been our choice hotel for the past several years, and we highly recommend it.

“The hotel was very nice and we were situated not too close to the noise, but not too far from the festival.” – Shari S. Client
