Nice business hotel. Central location but not close to the beach. We requested a room in a higher floor and opposite to the adjacent bus station. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff at the front desk is very nice and helpful. There is a parking garage with direct entrance to the hotel. But a little pricey,... More

Location is not super central but just a short walking distance (10 mins to 20 mins depending on how far) to the center of town. Wonderful breakfast selection. Room was clean & staff was helpful. Bathroom was also very nice and they provided some toiletries. Wifi was pretty good.

Was in business trip in SAN SEBASTIAN. Nice place and good rooms. Wifi was OK with enough flow to work. Hotel well localized in the city with quick acces to highways. Breakfast was very nice with lot of choices (salt or sweet). Very convenient car park just below the hotel.

This is a nice business hotel, with good service and pretty rooms. It has a good central location for business, but for tourist a better location would be closer to the La Concha area. No complaint, except for the location.

Stayed a few times with work, nice hotel with all the amenities, whilst average on price it is good and a short walk from the town, station and restaurants etc. Cannot go far wrong as decent parking is sometimes hard to find in San Sebastian and the road access here is good too.

There isn't really anything particularly wrong with this hotel (with the exception of the location) but it was just a little uninspiring and failed to do anything to lift it above the ordinary. The room was fine, but plain and the furnishings looked cheap. The staff were friendly but disorganised, the bar had no character....it just felt very sterile and... More

Drove from Bilbao airport (1 hour, great roads) and parked in the underground park across the road, which was linked to the hotel, with a reduced rate (€18.50 per day) and direct access. Were welcomed politely and given a room on the 9th floor. Comfortable, clean, good sized room, with tv and mini-bar. Super-comfortable bed and cosy bedding. Ok bathroom... More

I've stayed in many similar hotels that seem to be based on a US model of busines hotels, it was ok, the room was a bit small and box like but it had a bath which was a luxury in Spain in my experience. The restaurant was very average but the staff very good, the decor somewhat dated and it... More

The hotel is clean and comfortable. It is 20 mins walk to town and the beach, but is next to the bus station which is convenient for us as we were taking the bus to Bilbao. Helpful staff. Didn't have breakfast included as we though it was a bit expensive but there are many good cafes and shops in the... More

Well I was very happy staying at this hotel. Perfectly situated for a stay in Basque Country. Very central location in San Sebastián, 15-20 minute walk to the Casco Viejo, or take the 26 or 28 bus and it's only 5 minutes away. Personally I didn't mind the walk specially after a big meal. The Eusko Train station is only... More
