I spent only one night in this hotel in my way from London to south Spain. I found a nice room and bathroom size, very clean and confortable. The girl at reception was very helpful with her indications about the city and ordering a taxi for us (8€ to the center). With the park space for free for our car... More

This nice hotel is situated close to the beach of San Sebastian (only a ten minute walk down the hill) The staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the morning after a long drive and although the check-in time was in the afternoon we could already use our room. Had an excellent stay here!

The hotel was comfortable and a good location, bus or a taxi was necessary between hotel and the city. The lack of air conditioning in the rooms was the only minus, otherwise I can recommend. Good and cosy pool area.

Nothing really outstanding or bad about this hotel. The room was very spacious with a TV area with sofas. The bathroom was clean. We stayed there in February so we didnt enjoy the swimming pool. Far from the center, you need a car.

The hotel is perched half way up the hill on the west side of the town with some impressive views from the rooms. There's a little garden on two levels with a welcome pool if you're not in the mood to venture to the beach. I had only one night here and another in town, and I would say if... More

Hotel Avendia is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Donostia-San Sebastian but it is conveniently close. It's an easy downhill walk to the incredible beaches and not a bad walk back. Taxi one way is less than 6 Euros and buses run every half hour. The hotel itself does not have a view of the beach but it... More

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
