We stayed for one night on our return journey through Spain from Morocco. Personally I liked the location as it was away from the town, but might not suit all. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfortable and generously sized. We had a sea view, but the goat was more interesting than the... More

Loved the location away from the city with free parking, and a very good breakfast. The rooms were spacious and our double bed was indeed for 2 people. Green all around and enjoyed the goat grazing just outside our window as well as the view of the ocean. Bus stop is just a 5 minute walk away with chickens and... More

I stayed at the hotel several times. Has always been a great service. Value for money, in my opinion, is the best. Parking is free, which is also a plus. View of the ocean - wonderful. I recommend to those who want to spend time with good service and for the reasonable price. Andrey

Stayed here for one night on a stopover after a long drive from the south coast of England en route to southern Spain. It was fine, basic, clean and we had a sea view (although the sea is miles away and there was a great big electric pylon!). Wouldn't stay again through choice but the location might suit some people... More

My family stayed two nights in this hotel and everyone was happy with the choice. It's a clean and well-managed hotel in a great location about 10-15 minutes from San Sebastian. I would definitely stay in this hotel again. The only negative with this hotel is the spotty wifi. At least half the time it didn't work. We had a... More

This hotel i not in the best location, as it is somewhat far from San. Sebastian center. But the hotel is nice for a 2 star, and has nice sorroundings. The main problem was the pool, with some dirty leftoiver water, creating a great place for mosquitos to develop. The Hotel was full of mosquitos, and I`m sure that has... More

We couldn't find any place closer in due to Bruce Springsteen concert, but it turned out to be a pleasant stay. True, the rooms are somewhat dated, but it was clean and comfortable, with a very helpful and nice staff. It's super easy to take the bus into the heart of San Sebastian, and the free parking was a real... More

It's a pretty location on a hill to the west of San Sebastian. Is easily accessible by car and there's also a regular and reliable bus stopping nearby which runs to and from the town. The hotel was well maintained, had a good buffet style breakfast, and the staff on reception were helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the hotel had a... More
