Great place to plan your visit in San Sebastian, as it is cosy, clean, the rooms are perfect, the showers are new and the personal is very nice and professional. Location is 15-10 minutes to the city center; easy going. Moreover, great value for money!

The only information provided on the site was: "Children older than 10 years are welcome. One child or adult is charged 35 %... More

We stayed for 2 nights and paid €215 a night for a room (not very large) per night for 3 persons. We think this is worth around €120-150, albeit this was a busy period. The web-site shows a nice terrasse outside which seems to be isolated, but it is above a street with heavy traffic and thus very noisy, not... More

What a delightful little hotel only 15 minutes walk from the bustling city of San Sebastian. Good size room with modern shower room. Quiet location but easily walkable or busable to the city. Comfortable bed and very clean. Very helpful staff. Ask for the room overlooking the front which has a lovely little balcony you can sit on and is... More

Stayed here for three nights. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. The location was nice and quiet. Enjoyed the walk from the hotel to get to the beach and tourist areas. The bus as an alternative is cheap and runs regularly a short walking distance away from the hotel. Would stay here... More

Nice and small place. Hotel staff was very nice and I got excellent service, I got a lot of good tips&tricks about the city. So all in all very pleasant stay. If you come by car, It might be quite tricky to find the Hotel. Nice and quiet neighbourhood. Easy to go downtown by bus.

The B&B is about 45mins walk to the beach and serviced by a 20mins bus ride. It has free parking and the rooms are individually decorated. Clearly effort went into decorating them. I would have given this hotel a higher rating had they not put us in the room on the ground floor which was: 1) much smaller than the... More

A little hard to find in the rain and the dark and no thanks to one way streets and Sat Nav, but, when we did finally arrive we were greeted very pleasantly by the young Staff who own and run the Hotel. They spoke good English and our room was spotlessly clean as was whole hotel. Our trip was only... More

Couldn't find any other hotel in town so we settled for this one which was a pleasant enough B&B. But not worth the very high room tarif... By british standards the rooms were ok, breakfast was a la carte...on the terrace. They have just opened so will give them a thumbs up for effort but lower your prices!

Being San Sebastian a very expensive city we found Hotel Donosti a great alternative. Located about 1 mile from the city center, but just 5 minutes by a very convenient bus (public transport in San Sebastian is great while driving/parking impossible) can't be beaten value wise. It's run by a young couple that made us feel more than house guests... More
