We had a wonderful visit to San Sebastian (Donostia) Spain and it was highlighted with our stay at the Hotel La Galeria. This was recommended by a friend and was well worth it! The hotel sits in a wonderful location along La Concha beach, which is a premier tourism beach in the summer. We were fortunate with excellent winter weather.... More

not particularly good in any respect,old fashioned,well due for an upgrade and some serious soundproofing.the noise between the rooms is a bit grim. a tired old hotel living in the past in every respect except the price.

Excellent choice of hotel in San Sebastian, to be in a quiet part of town with one foot on the beach. Rooms are nicely sized, good bedding and friendly staff. We took our breakfast on the beach in a beach Chiringuito. The walk along the Cornisa is lovely, it took us 30-40 minutes to walk to the old quarter. The... More

A local friend recommended to book this hotel, the location is great, next to the beach, a bit far away from the old town, rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is right. Parking spots are limited, but the hotel manages this with the Spanish flexibility,

We had a very nice stay in Hotel La Galeria. Despite having concerns that is was at the other end of the bay from the "old Town" we found the walk (approx 25 minutes with our 4 year old) very pleasant and almost necessary after partaking in all the wonderful food in San Sebastian. The fact that we managed to... More

The best thing about la Galeria is the location, in my opinion. As others have noted, Ondarreta beach is on the other end of the promenade from the old city. We preferred this, as it is quieter on this side. The walk into the old town is very nice, and takes about 15 minutes, but the hotel rents out bikes... More

This hotel is located close to the sea front but the wrong end for the old part of San Sebastian (where all the restaurants, bars, shops are located). As others have noted there is limited parking at the front of the hotel. You have to leave your car keys with the (unfriendly) front of house staff. We returned on a... More

We booked this hotel purely for the location as we decided a month before to visit San Sebastian, so there were no other reasonably priced hotels left on the seafront. We didn't expect much (other than a sea front hotel). I think the price we paid (£142 per night) was a bit much though. We had a sea view room... More

La Galería was a fabulous find. We were so pleased with our room, which had a beautiful ocean view, and was on the top floor. The bed was comfortable, and the room and bathroom were quite spacious. We very much enjoyed our stay, and would recommend the hotel.

Unfortunately we had to stay here recently for 4 nights as all else was booked. The location was great, parking onsite only for around 8 to 10cars was OK. Light breakfast available until 10am but after that, nothing including no tea or coffee facilities. Our room was tiny and you had minimal toiletry items and no hair conditioner. The bed... More
