I stayed for three nights in this hotel and overall I am satisfied and I enjoyed the stay. The room was big, cozy and clean and so was the bathroom. The stuff was very friendly and gave us helpful information about the city. The hotel is a little bit far from the old town and the city centre but it's... More

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room was good and the staff helpful. The only negative thing is that it is a bit far from the old city. Since we enjoy walking we did not mind it.

The hotel was a little shabby with a worn stair carpet in the lobby. The café had little choice Sunday evening although breakfasts were good. My first floor single room was well fitted with a good bed and generous wardrobe space but it was impossible to dry off in the bathroom as space was so cramped. The leak to the... More

This hotel was situated away from the old town, about 20 mins walk along the beach area. The staff were more than helpful whenever we had a question even though they didn't speak a lot of English. We had a spacious room, with a beautifully appointed bathroom, including double basins.Our bed was huge and comfortable. The only thing that troubled... More

Hotel room was big like the hotel rooms in North America which was nice. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious with a nice tub. The location was about a 5 min walk to the beach, but if you wanted to go to the old town you would need to add an additional 30 mins. There was... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. It's a short walk to the beach however is a couple of kilometers away from the main town with all the shops, bars and the old quarter. It's a lovely walk along the platform next to the beach but a bit inconvenient if you're doing it more than once... More

This was a very nice hotel. The staff was excellent, worked very hard to speak correct english. The breakfast was great. Rooms are very nice. A great location to the beach. In walking distance to the downtown square.

The good: Very good location for Ondarreta beach. Rooms cleaned daily. The rest: The service from reception staff was average at best - we arrived at 3pm, with room supposed to be available from 2pm. Was told that room wasn't available and would be another hour. No apology. When I challenged this (we'd be travelling for a few hours), staff... More

It is a hotel in San Sebastian! Memorable? Nope. Conveniently located? Yes. Situated on the main road in Ondaretta district (noisey - see room recommendation). A classic style hotel that could be anywhere. Very comfortable. Clean, well maintained, classic style. Good size rooms. Rooms with safe/hair dryer/bath/TV/AC (don't forget it is Spain so all twin beds). Only facilities are a... More

Definitely far from a 4 star hotel. I've stayed in countless hotels and this wins the award for worst reception service. Hard to ask for directions and help for good restaurants. Will book elsewhere next time. Rooms are decent and spacious. Its close enough to the beach. Not worth the cost for sure!!!
