Thank you so much Fani at the front desk for your amazing food recommendations. We had three wonderful evenings and all because of you! Many of my favourite Pintxo bars in the old town were closed for annual holidays until July which was a disappointment but instead found three with real quality to add to my list! I have been...

Loved this location in a quiet yet very convenient part of town. Less than 5 min walk to the beach. The hotel itself is fine--not much in the way of character, but the front desk staff were very friendly. Room had a couple of funny smells--faint odor of smoke (to be fair I had not requested a non-smoking room) and... More

Great option for a getaway weekend. The staff was helpful, the room was spacious and clean - we got one on the top floor with a terrace - tough it may need to be refreshed - as most of the hotel. Location is not bad either.

Stayed at this hotel in June on a room only basis. The hotel is very close the beach which was perfect, and there are also a number of shops / bakery / supermarket nearby which was good for breakfas. It was a bit of a walk along the promenade to the Old Town, but this was lovely to do during... More

We stayed at the Hotel San Sebastion for four nights. It is a couple blocks from the beach and a lovely hotel. The breakfast buffet was really great and the food in the main dining room was also very good. We enjoyed meeting our server Bill- he was awesome! It was really an ideal location for exploring this amazing city.

Overall good hotel. 5 minute walk to the beach, 30 minute walk to downtown but easy access to transit (number 5 and 25 bus). Parking was about 17E extra per day. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Lady at the front desk wasn't particularly friendly but the rest were great.

Very comfortable, clean room near the beach in a residential neighborhood. A good mile walk to the older part of Town but that meant it was quiet, so for us perfect. And the walk is all along the beautiful beach promenade so a nice way to spend the evening. The service was exceptional. The desk clerk and bellman made every... More

Needs some refreshing .. Breakfast expensive for what it was and not very fresh. The staff is friendly but this hotel is not a 4 star. They are also way out of the city. All that said they are overall cheaper that other hotels in San Sebastián.
