Every time I came to Donostia, i came to this hotel. Parking is in front of the hotel. Its a little bit far from the center, but you can take a bus or just walk the whole promenade. I liked my stay in this hotel and Donostia. The food is amazing...

The modern design hotel with huge parking (underground and outdoor) not in a coastline. Rooms are big and comrotable, a lot of them have a small balcony. Located in quiet place in 5-10 minutes walkingfrom a coastline, near the Miramar Park. The same 5-10 minutes walking for the nearest grocery store and cafes. Or 8-10 minutes to the old town... More

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.. Much as the exterior didn't look fantastic, the interiors and rooms were much better. Room was comfortable with basically all the amenities you'll require. Bed was also comfortable for us to recharge and... More

I looked on Tripadvisor for a hotel near to the start of the marathon and I was too late. Pretty much all of the hotels were booked up. I plumped for this one because I could get in albeit it was a 20 min walk to the start-line. The hotel building is not at all pretty but the reviews were... More

This was my first experience at a Barcelo hotel. While it was better than I expected, I was underwhelmed with the brand. Examples of the reason include a rolling suite case bench that creeps when you open your suit case, a glass shower door that lets enough water out of the shower to flood the floor, and no electric kettle...
