Fabulous view, but out of town. Easier access with a car. No restaurants nearby except for a very expensive one across the way. No one to help with the baggage down the steps. Large rooms a great breakfast. This is mostly suited for business travellers or people with cars. I would not recommend this for single travellers or seniors.

We stayed for four nights recently and we have never been so happy to leave a hotel. The only real problem was noise from neighbouring rooms. The walls are either unbelievabally thin or the construction is just not good enough. You could hear everything from people using the toilets to drawers opening and shutting. I don't think our fellow guests... More

This hotel is ideally located for those who want to go to the beach. Ondarreta beach is only a 10-minute walk away. You will have to drive or take the bus to go everywhere else, including the city center. I thought the hotel was quite clean, but very very noisy: we could listen to the elevator, to other guests and... More

We booked a one night stay here through a 3rd party booking company (hotels 4u). I mistakenly booked the wrong date; completely my fault. We were informed by the hotel that we could cancel the booking and obtain a full refund but that we would have to pay upfront for another room if we wanted to stay that night (at... More

This hotel is on a hill close to the tram which leads to an overview of San Sebastian. There is free hotel parking so this is a good place to stay if you are driving. It is a short drive to La Concha beach and Old Town. There is plenty of downtown parking by the beach but be prepared to... More

We enjoy walking, this hotel is a ways out of town, up a rather steep hill, but suited us well. For those who are driving there seems to be ample free parking. We found groceries, restaurants not far and breakfast is available on site. We enjoyed a spacious room, very clean and bright with comfortable beds. There is a swimming... More

The room was fine, the position of the hotel is a little out of town so a short walk to the bus stop gets you in to town easily, The big problem for us was the fact that the walls are very thin and the people in the room next to us decided to invite about 6 others in and... More

This small hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the city, down a steep hill , which means a steep hill going back. Not for people who do not like walking. That is the negative part. Very clean and comfortable place. Free Wi-Fi. The breakfast cost 9 euros, but there is plenty of choice. Staff very helpful and the views... More

Required a decent lodging with free parking and this hotel fit the bill. Initially wanted to book Hotel Leku as reviews of the view were very good there but it was booked out. Hotel Avenida fulfilled our requirements perfectly. The room was overlooking the car park but for €80 couldn't complain, I wasn't there for the room and the city... More
