Not our hotel

Reviews don’t say whether a hotel has an interesting paint job so we missed out on one again. Our hotel is very nice though. It has a castle motif.

This is also not our hotel.

But it is, despite the looks, a four star parador which Google says goes for 258 Euros a night. It seems to be an old castle. We peeked in the door and it is really nice inside. It’s about a block from our hotel. We were amazed how charming Hondarribia is where we are tonight. We chose tonight’s hotel mainly because it was close to the airport so we didn’t expect a particularly good neighborhood. It turned out to be one of the loveliest places we’ve been to on our trip, complete with ocean. And we can see France right across the bay.
