We arrived, checked in to our sea view room and opened our door to a room full of flies. I went to the front desk to ask them to please get rid of the flies for us ... they handed me a fly swatter. We immediately wanted to switch hotels ... but knew we would waste a good afternoon of... More

Nice and unique rooms, modern setup for showers with folding glass door panels, raised sleeping areas, in almost a loft-style environment, which was super cool. Cleanliness was top notch, as were the people. This hotel is directly across the surfing beach of Zurriola. A great spot as it is at the end of the beach strip, little quiet, and has... More

There were a lot of problems we had with this hotel. Having read a review saying that this hotel was 3-star quality, my wife and I booked the place for my birthday trip to San Sebastian. They were very wrong. While the proximity to the beach was good, there were a lot of issues: 1) Parking is not on-site. They... More

Recently stayed here (2 people). The location was great. Close to the surfing beach, but about 10 mins to the main part of San Sebastián. Was definitely at the 'surf party' end of the beach. The staff were really great. Welcoming and helpful. Some if the rooms have the bed in a basement which is not so great, so would... More

Good location with wonderful beach views (chose a room at the front) about 15 minutes walk from old town. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and pleasant. Bathroom was good. Breakfast buffet was good, particularly as served outside; would have been a bit crowded in the tiny reception area. It is a really tiny hotel, looks... More

Terrific hotel! Great staff, great location and great rooms. My boyfriend is a surfer so was able to pop across the road to surf each morning before we headed off to explore the wonderful city that is San Sebastian. Andrea and the other staff were outstanding - they even went to the trouble to arrange a traditional, local meal for... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent breakfasts, great location, overlooking the beach, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The town centre is only a short walk, there's a car park in front of the hotel, it's ideal for surfing, outside the the hotel, there were play areas for basketball, football rollerblading, and cycle lanes would definitely stay there again.

If you are looking for an affordable option near a great surfing spot, look no further in San Sebastián. This was a great choice for surfing. The hotel is right at the beach and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Good affordable rates. Just be careful when parking in front of the hotel and pay close attention to the... More

Good afternoon, thank you very much for your review. During our administration, until 31 August this year we have made many efforts to meet their needs. Because of the many rental costs, management, personnel and maintenance especially to avoid odor problems, make cozy rooms with wood floors, photos, breakfast varied as possible and others, we could not continue and had...

We took a standard double bedroom which was in the first floor (lift available). It was small but clean and modern, very decent for two nights' stay. The room had a/c and minibar and a small wall tv set. Bathroom also new, clean and functional. Breakfast on the ground floor was coffee/tea, toast, butter/marmalade, ham and cheese, cereals, yoghurt, juices... More
