We spent 2 nights in this cosy hotel/b&b which is located on the hills over San Sebastian. The building used to be a casa del pastor and it was refurnished by a basque family. From the first beginning of our stay we felt like at home. We had a very warm welcome at our arrival; the staff was always happy... More

Pros: Free parking, free internet (although a bit slow connection). Relatively quiet if you sleep with the windows closed, which due to the temperature was no problem during our stay in the hotel. Friendly staff. Cons: Too expensive for what you get (189 € / night in double room in August) – even considering that the hotels in San Sebastian... More

One star hotel? B&B is more correct. We unfortunately got the room by the stairs and next to the breakfast room. VERY noisy! Also a lot of traffic noice. We stayed 3 nights and had to buy ear-plugs to survive....but that worked fine:-) Staff was very friendly, but the place needs a lot of TCL to justify the price they... More

We booked Hotel Donosti due to the availability of parking, which is difficult to find in San Sebastian. The first thing we noticed as we pulled down was how run down the place looked. Hoping it would be better inside, we proceeded to the front door with our bags. As soon as the door opened the smell of damp and... More

Hotel Donosti is more like a B&B than a hotel, and we found it a bit difficult to locate as it is in the middle of a residential area. The young man we met on arrival was, to say the least, flaky unlike the other staff we met. The room was very comfortable, decorated with care with a super modern... More

We booked this hotel because we thought it would be a welcoming place... We were told it was a 5 min walk to town ... It was a 35 minute walk or a 9 E cab fare or a bus ride. The hotel has a very musty smell in the lobby and front area. The carpet on the stairs should... More

Friendly and helpful host who spoke good English. Ample off-street parking. Short walk to bus route to get into town (we actually walked down the hill to town and got the bus back). Great shower. Clean and comfortable room with great decor. Extras in the room were a nice touch, such as water, apple juice, body moisturiser, together with the... More

If you're looking for a fairly cheap and quirky hotel in San Sebastian, then this is the place for you. Tucked away some two kilometres out of town, this hotel is a welcome antidote to the hustle-and-bustle of the busy city. However, don't worry about getting to and from the city centre, it's only a ten-minute bus ride. The bus... More

The Donosti is found in a quite street in San Sebastian, we arrived by motorcycle very hot and tired after the ferry crossing from Plymouth. The staff very helpful and spoke very good English as our Spanish is very poor. The room was quite big with a very comfortable bed so a good nights sleep was had. The noise was... More

My family and I stayed for two nights in August. We arrived late on the first night and the staff were very helpful as we had got lost in San Sebastian and were very patient trying to guide us to the hotel. We had the quadruple room which was large, airy and very clean. Although it is a bus ride... More
