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

My family and I stayed here in early July (3 rooms) for 3 nights. The hotel was perfect for our needs--yes, it is not right in town, but that was a good thing because the week we were there the city was very crowded with a lot of young people (which was fine unless you were staying on one of...

The hotel is a little lacking in character and a good 30 minute walk to the old town. That said it is handy for Miramar Palace & Gardens and a 10 min walk to Ondarreta Beach. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The beds are a good size, the showers good but not much storage space.... More

Choose this because it had a pool which were really happy with but it's a bit of a trek to the main town (shops + bars etc). You are 5 mins walk to one end of la concha beach, it will take you about 30 mins to walk from one end to the other. Note the other end has the... More

The rooms are small, but the furniture chosen makes use of the space so you feel as though you have a lot of room. It was clean and comfortable. Fresh eggs can be ordered at breakfast, but the coffee was not very good. The hotel is out of the way, but we walked into town and enjoyed walkibng along the... More

Good modern hotel situated at far end of San Sebastian. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant is priced as high end but food far from satisfactory. Monk fish had to be returned as too tough to eat.

Nice Hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. Service was good but you did have to have some patients with the bar staff. They could only service one customer at a time. The downstairs area is a little clinical and lacks atmosphere but the rooms were excellent although the integrated shower / wardrobe arrangement was a little off putting. Bed was... More

The hotel is located in a quiet area of town, about 15-20 min from the heart of la concha beach and just 5 min walking from the beautiful Palacio Miramar overlooking the bay (take the short cut steps). If you do not mind walking, it is nice but you can always catch a bus (3 euros) or a taxi on... More

There were a number of annoying things, the curtains and windows were not designed to be opened without a struggle everytime. The single beds, were dangerous as my poor partner rolled over from his side and fell between the beds as they moved apart. The shower is great and the room service staff were cheerful and rooms were cleaned well.... More

A modern hotel, clean, with very comfortable beds (although two twins put together to make a king.) Bathrooms are very spacious and have every amendity. Outside of town, but if you are a walker, it is a lovely 20-25 min walk to the beach and town. Bus will get you there and back easily. The only think I don't like... 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. We also offer guests a convenient car park situated at the hotel entrance. Furthermore, during your stay you can enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. ... more   less
