This quirky, older hotel has a premier location that overlooks the entire bay, provides easy access to the beach, boardwalk and many shopping, dining venues. It is not fancy or particularly fashionable, but it does offer clean, comfortable rooms and a good restaurant that is on the main floor and overlooks the bay. The city tour bus stops close by,...

This is a very well situated hotel. We walked to and from the bus and train stations with no problem, and the old town was a nice, easy walk along the water. We paid extra to guarantee a sea view, which was lovely and well worth the modest extra cost. The room was rather plain, no extras of any kind... More

We loved San Sebastián and Hotel Niza made it perfect. The hotel is superbly located halfway along the promenade with superb views from its cafe and from the ocean facing rooms. You can walk out the door onto the promenade and enjoy the stroll into town day of night. Or you can catch the bus outside the hotel. There are... More

We booked a room with a sea view and it was magical! The building is old and the elevator is a real novelty. The rooms were clean. When I emailed the hotel prior to arriving I received prompt and pleasant responses back! The view is what made the hotel so make sure you try and get a sea view!

Extremely small rooms. Bathroom very meanly equipped & supplies not replenished for 2 night stay. Poor bed quality. High noise levels between rooms and extreme noise from road. Seaview rooms / premium(?) rooms necessary for a more comfortable stay.

We stayed at Hotel Niza for 2 nights. The hotel is well-situated on the beach, a short walk to the old town, and the two hills that are on either side of the beach. The room was immaculate; designed with pale wood floors, with a pale blue/ green theme, and a stunning view of the ocean through our glass balcony... More

Having an ocean front room with the hotel seems to be first come first serve, the staff was so accommodating to get us a perfect room, top floor and ocean front. They said we had made our reservation so far in advance they would do their best to get us Ocean front. Our daughter decided to join us at the... More

Lovely friendly staff and a great sea view. The room was perfectly adequate and very clean. If we had a small niggle it would be the noise of the music of the nightclub on the beach on the Friday, but we managed to sleep through it!

This is the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in. I can tolerate some outside noise due to the location right on the beach but the noise from inside the hotel was unbearable. The internal lift doors are magnetic so have to be wrenched open and slammed shut so this reverberated around the hotel constantly. In addition, the rooms have... More

Two night stay. Right on the beach, strollers and wonderful views of San Sebastián right out your windows.. Great location at end of hotel row on the promenade. Fall asleep to sound of waves. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, clean rooms and wonderful food. Good value for San Sebastián. Parking convenient but not free.
