I don't want to write a review, I just want the hotel to know of the awful food their restaurant is serving to their clients when they have tour groups to serve. They were served something else other than the buffet main course.

Excellent modern hotel, worth staying. San Sebastian is generally overpriced as a result the hotel too but it is generally a very beautiful place. Cleanliness was top, wireless was fast and coverage throughout the building. Food was very good at the hotel restaurant and bar makes great cocktails!

The shower fixture fell off. The room was not clean. The breakfast was a farce of grease, stale pastry and disgusting coffee. The parking is 16 Euros a night, but two of the four nights there, we had to leave the car and get our parking pass validated in order to leave the parking lot. The hotel is located in... More

We only stayed at this hotel one night and wished we could stay longer. It was clean, modern and spacious with a balcony. The only negative is that it is not close to the downtown area everyone wants to visit while in San Sebastian. We did get a better price than some of the other closer hotels.

Super modern hotel mainly for business, but good service for tourists too. Room was clean and spacious. Location is far from airport and train, so you need to take a taxi. City centre is about 45 minutes walk, but a beautiful walk. It was off season so we ate in the restaurant in the hotel. Very nice but thank god... More

Liked the location very much - just a short walk down to the beach and the district of Ondarreta which has lots of bars and restaurants. Its a very pleasant walk into the old town by the coastal route, or you can take a bus from directly outside the hotel. We used buses a lot including to get to the... More

Hotels in San Sebastian are expensive, and only two that we were aware of have a swimming pool, so this is a good option if you are looking for one. Though, we were rather annoyed by the fact that only breakfast diners were allowed to use the pool before breakfast ended. Breakfast was about €20 so we didn't have it... More
