A modern hotel, a nice walk out of town, beautiful bright and large rooms with great bathrooms, we didn't have breakfast but we did have gins in the evening, amazing, delicious and remarkable gins. This is the best gin joint we have ever stayed in!

Comfortable, modern, and clean rooms. We walked to the town and la concha beach every day - about 500m to the beach, and a couple of kms to the city. The heating and cooling system was a bit off, and sometimes the lifts were so busy we had to wait 4-5 times because the lift was very small. Otherwise, a... More

Walking takes around 25 minutes. There isnt much to see directly around the hotel. The hotel felt fresh and seems to have been fairly recently renovated. The breakfast... More

Avoid this hotel for business. WiFi internet connection is a disaster, the system gives an extremely low connection that keeps coming and going and do not allow to work. No possible to work in the rooms and no wire connection available. As ask to many employees, problem is persisting from very long time but Management have no resolved the issue.

Good hotel outside the center of San Sebastian. Still, it is only a 20-25 minute walk from the center. And it's a beautiful walk! The rooms although a bit small, were modern, well decorated and welcoming. The room had a very nice balcony with a clear view. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The staff are friendly and attentive. Very... More

Upon check-in, the vibes I got at the Reception wasn't very inviting, they weren't smiling- perhaps I arrived and requested for an early check in.. that's why..
