Hotel is situated about 20 to 30 minutes walk from town centre, a nice slow walk along the beach promenade. Check in staff friendly and speaks good English. The guy who delivered our luggage was grumpy and left our luggage outside our rooms instead of delivering into our room. Breakfast - good selection. Room are okay, beds are large. We... More

When you visit an iconic resort like San Sebastian hotel choice is more important than ever. With so many to choose from and some scary prices the wrong call can spoil your perception of a place. So what makes this such a great call? Location firstly - just ten minutes from the main beaches and the stunning bay - and... More

My basic beef with this place is that it is capable of getting a 4 or 5 star review but through lack of effort it falls short. So it is fundamentally ok with some strong points: it is modern spacious and airy; an excellent pool; it's close to the quieter end of la concha bay and an area with some... More

Excellent stay with outstanding staff. The hotel was fantastic for us. Maialen the concierge could not have been more helpful. She recommended a Pinxtos Tour that included 5 locations, paired local wines and some history ( with gossip) for our small group. Suki was our excellent guide and showed us an amazing insiders evening in a crazy fun city. The... More

Just returned yesterday from a 3 night stay which we really enjoyed. I picked this hotel, knowing it was a little way away from the Old Town to make sure we had some relaxing time.

Had a great couple of days. Not all rooms have balcony make sure you ask for one. About 5 minutes from the beach, a bit of a climb to get back. The old town is on the other side on the bay. Maialen's help to find the best restaurants was greatly appreciated!

OK I was on a veterans rugby tour in the city with clubs from all over Europe. However this hotel was superb. Friendly staff, bar and restaurant prices not too over the top. Greta facilities and only a small walk to the beach and nightlife. What a fantastic city. Frienliest people I have ever met
