Great location close to historic quarter and overlooking bay . Room slightly expensive and dated but fantastic for access to historic centre of this beautiful city. We arrived Easter Friday , bank holiday ; many visitors mainly locals - fantastic tapas bars ( but not much else by way of food !! ) easy parking in centre of city .... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location, right on the pedestrian walk along the rocks in San Sebastian, and at the edge of the Old Town. I arrived at 9 AM and the receptionist kindly moved me into an empty room right away, which I very much appreciated. My room was modest but clean. I skipped the hotel... More

Really great place to relax and just be yourself. When we came to Parma Hotel, there were free aromatic towels everywhere. Room was clean and it had a happy vibe. It has an easy walking distance to all the great locations in the city. The only thing that bothered us was slow service. But overall i liked it.

I spent a few days recently at the Hotel Parma. It is well located in proximity to the Old Town and with great views across the river to the surf beach. What stands out for me is the quality of sleep. I had a window open and I could hear the sea pounding, but I think the ozone made me... More

We stayed two nights here in early October and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The staff is welcoming and helpful. They gave us suggestions for eating locally and for types of local drinks to try. It is within walking distance of the old town and the beautiful bay. There is something very homey about this hotel. It is not for people... More

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved the location - right by the Atlantic and the riverfront in San Sebastian. It was easy walking distance to pretty much everywhere in San Sebastian. We did not stay in a "view" room, so got a great price. The receptionist was extremely helpful with maps and recommendations. Parking is available for... More

Hotel Parma is in a great location, right at the eastern end of the long walk along San Sebastian's waterfront. Rooms are adequate, basic and clean; price-wise this is a good value compared to others in the area. If you are driving here, parking is a trick. You'll find one reserved spot at Parma's corner where you can park while... More

Perfectly located just a few minutes from the old town yet very close to the beach. The room was ok, quite old fashioned interior but clean. The wifi didn't work in the room, only in the reception. Breakfast only acceptable, but quite expensive (not included in the room rate) and no baby chair available. We were in San Sebastián for... More

This gem is on the water in an ideal location. (3 blocks from the Santa Cristina). Friendly, helpful service. The rooms have been recently re-done with new drapery, carpets and bath. Nice sheets and towels. The decor is nothing fancy but it is SO comfortable. My husband and I have been back 2 times and will return for our next... More

san sebastian is real busy most of the time, so typically a lot of the hotels seem to be quite expensive and not too amazing. this hotel was pretty good, clean, ok breakfast, what made it stand out was how nice the people there were. nothing was too much trouble to help out, including safe storage for our bikes, taxis,...
