Individual guest reviews

  • Super location by the river and convenient to bus station. Good value for money and great price. All beautiful parks, within walking distance of the old town and beach, lobby pretty nice.

    Comfortable hotel parking expensive and the staff were a bit mixed, some very friendly, some ok and one was a bit rude. Rooms were not too big.

  • The views were good too and we only used as a stop over and did not actually see the town. The hotel was very quiet inside, the price was excellent too and i appreciated the free beach towel rentals, as we had not packed any. All staff were nice, room was spotless and the mini bar was well stocked and we loved the range of products in the bathroom. The curtains were great totally blackouted at night and the breakfast was one of the best buffets I have seen.

  • Handy for the centre, bus stop is very near and the breakfast is for me without doubt the very best I ever had in a hotel. The staff are really helpful, the room is clean and tidy.

    Not a bad location in an amazing town and reception looks poor. Air conditioning not great.

  • Location an friendly personnel, a large bus station for public transport is also in front and san Sebastian is a great town. Hotel itself is nice, the reception staff are polite and the room and the bathroom are spacious. Breakfast buffet is very good.

    For me personally the bed was too hard.

  • Nice lounge areas around reception and taxis are parked in front. One of the best hotels i have stayed in, we weren't bothered by any road noise as rooms are well insulated and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Beds are very good and breakfast is worth the price.

    Very noisy location, old town and quality of the food is not that great anymore.

  • The location is great and rooms on the side overlooking underground carpark very quiet. This hotel is excellent and good price overall considering the time of year etc. Staff are pleasant and helpful, the breakfast selection and service is outstanding, best selection I have seen and fresh.

    I loved the view from our bedroom window onto the bus station, others might not find that a bonus and a 20 minute walk to the old town.

  • Very friendly exceptionally clean good rooms good location, buses also look to be frequent and san Sebastian is a wonderfully beautiful Basque coastal town. Hotel service is great, plus, free internet access right in the lobby and the front desk personal are extremely helpful. The bed is huge, breakfast is brilliant.

    No outdoor relaxation areas and about 15 minutes fast walking to the beach. Reception staff were quite rude, the towels were not changed as part of the housekeeping check each day.
