Thought this was a very nice, clean, fresh hotel, well worth 4 stars, which you can't always say in Spain. Rooms were clean and modern, food was good, and wifi was free. The location is a ten minute walk from the town centre/beach area, but it's a pleasant walk along the river bank, past some nice, elegant houses. Indeed all... More

Stayed 3 nights. Lovely hotel right beside bus station which suited because we were travelling by bus but a bit far out from the Old Town - about 20-25 mins walk. Very clean & modern but the room in which we stayed wasn't very roomy. Very little space between bed and table. Had breakfast (which was very nice - fresh... More

We flew into Biarritz & got the bus to San Sebastián which dropped us right outside the hotel which was really handy! The walk into the old town took about 20 mins & you can get the 26 & 28 buses around the corner from the hotel which seem to go every 5 mins or so, so I thought the... More

My wife and I just stayed 5 nights at this hotel and were very, very satisfied. The location is wonderful...very close to convenient bus stops to go to the Old Town or the Catedral areas, which are two main points for dining or shopping. And if you want to take a day trip to Bilbao, it is right next to... More

We arrived into San Sebastian/Donostia from Madrid just after noon, and found it took us about 20 minutes stroll along the river to get to Silken Amara Plaza. The external didn’t look inviting at all, but the small lobby reception was pleasant enough. Beyond the lobby is a bar, and after that is the cafeteria. Check in was handled quickly,... More

We stayed twice at the Silken Amara Plaza in July, eight days total. We had a positive experience and would stay there again. The property is fairly new and generally well maintained. We loved the location, a nice neighborhood a 20-minute walk to the old quarter and next to the bus station, where you can catch a bus to Bilbao... More

It was a very confortable start to drive the rented car into an underground garage and to take the lift directly to the reception. The reception staff was very friendly. All the members of the reception staff during our three days´ stay were friendly and the information we got for our sight seeing trips was very appreciated. The room was... More

Arriving from Bilbao Airport, the bus pulls up 20m from hotel which is great. The hotel is very clean - we stayed on the 8th floor - the carpet outside the rooms looked and smelt brand new. The rooms are fairly small but cosy (good sized bathroom though). Its a 20-25min stroll into old town - my wife and I... More
