It's far from the Ritz but this hotel ticks all the boxes and I would recommend it. Comfy bed, spacious room, widescreen TV, nice bathroom, decent shower, good maid service, generous with toiletries... The reception area is large and welcoming and there is always someone on hand to assist. There's the Piano Bar adjacent to the reception and the cafeteria... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with a bus tour. Location was nice near the river and near the centre, at least you could walk to the centre or take a bus. Lovely area to walk around along the river. My room was always cold and the one morning I did not have hot water. That night there wasn't any again... More

This was a very pleasant hotel chosen for its location. We arrived by coach from Bilbao and as we only had one night didn't want to spend a long time looking for a hotel. We were on the 6 th floor overlooking the river and bus station but we were not bothered by traffic noise. The staff were helpful and... More

We choose this hotel because it is quite close to the Donosti old town and Concha beach, both are within a 20 minutes walk, public transportation is also available, easy to use and quite efficient. Rooms are large and comfortable and service is very good. The hotel has a restaurant that we did not try, there is so much to... More

We chose this hotel as it offers secure, private parking and we had a classic car with us. We found that the better located, seafront hotels could not guarantee this. We were warmly greeted in a spacious reception area and our room was on a higher floor so offered us a view of the suburbs and park nearby. We were... More

2 night stay to enjoy the food of San Sebastián. 20 minute walk to old town along the river. Would prefer to stay closer but the Spanish a Film Festival was on. This pushes up hotel prices so consider this when timing visit to the town. If you are planning to hit the pintxo bars stay closer to the old... More
