The hotel is right next to the bus terminal and local bus stop. The Anoeta Stadium is walking distance and the old town and the beach is a few bus stops away. Staff are helpful and efficient. We did not get to try the restaurant. The only negative comment that I would have is that the towels have to be... More

We enjoyed staying there for 2 nights. Modern facilities and good services made us happy. Not so bad access to the old city center, either by taxi or on foot. Also their breakfast was good. Considering the cost performance, we give them 5 points.

Rght next to the bus station about 1.5km form the city. Straight walk to the centre along the river, quite nice. 60 euro for one night was a great price through Trivago, clean standard hotel, would higly recomend it for a for days getaway. The price quoted was in the first week f January, low season I presume.

I had a two night business stay here in December 2015. The hotel has a boutique feel, with art displayed around the public areas and interesting décor. Rooms what you would expect, a decent size and clean with a full size bathroom. I only used the restaurant for breakfast but this offered a reasonable choice and efficient service. The staff...

Eventhough a bit far frrom the old town, we found the walk very pleasant. Whether strolling along the river or enjoying the families streetside, it was a lovely walk and actually added to our enjoyment. We were on a higher floor and did not notice any bus or taxi noise. It would have been quite convenient if we had done... More

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
