We stayed here in 2012 and had no hesitation is booking again for our trip to San Sebastian. Some things had been changed in the hotel since our last visit, but the fundamentals were still in place - great food, efficient service and high quality rooms. We were delayed a day due to a late connection and the hotel kindly... More

Brilliant food - breakfast was absolutely perfect, lots of selection. Friendly and welcoming service. Not cheap, but has some great views and is very close to the beach. Family orientated. Didn't get to go in the pool because it was only a quick stay. Underground parking for an extra €20. Would recommend it.:)

This hotel is in a quiet area about a five minute walk from a good beach and a twenty five minute walk from the old town. The facilities are modern with a good size pool with attendant and secure parking at around £10 per day. There are several good restaurants in the area but the walk to the old town... More

The photographs on the hotel website don't do this property justice. An excellent location in walking distance to the beach but with a peaceful and attractive pool to retreat to. The rooms for our family (2 interconnecting) were huge and had an attractive modern design. Would have liked a kettle in the room but otherwise an excellent place to explore... More

Very kind welcome upon arriving when we received clear indications of what to do in the city. Many options for parking the car around the hotel. A little bit far from the night life areas of the Bay. We needed to use the car to reach the centre and pay expensive parking places, when available. Rooms well equipped as well... More

We expected a lot more from this hotel, given drawbacks such as location being far from the sea and old town. We arrived by car (hire one if you haven't already done so, you need a car for this part of Spain) and then got charged €13 per night for parking. You can therefore add that to the total bill,...

I stayed here with a group of 39 fellow travelers. We were there to attend the Heineken Jazz festival. The accommodations were great. The room included a free breakfast which would meet anyone's standard. The bus stop to go to the old town is just across the street that runs about every 20 mins. If you like a good shower,... More

This hotel is very trendy, clean and nice. However it is expensive (like other hotels in San Sebastian) and it took about 30 minutes to walk to the downtown area. But walking by the shore was not bad at all, what a view! Furthermore, there are some restaurants and shops close to the hotel. The hotel room was very comfortable... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Barcelo Costa Vasca**** hotel is a landmark in San Sebastian, it is located 7 minutes by foot to Ondarreta Beach and 15 mins from the famous creation by the sculptor Eduardo Chillida "El Peine del Viento". Discover the city's historical and traditional side by enjoying a few tapas in the old Basque quarter or enjoy all the glamour of our city, taking a pleasant stroll, with magnificent views of the La Concha Bay. What better way to end the day than by relaxing in our Urban Wellness Centre with its wide range of treatments (managed by the Sasoibide group), or over a drink in front of the fireplace in our B-lounge Bar. For the summer season (1 July to 31 August) we offer you 2500 m² of garden area to enjoy, where you can relax with a cocktail in our Swim Bar or cool yourself down in our semi-Olympic sized swimming pool.
