Parking was expensive - 60€ but secure and close so long as you're a good driver and not nervous as its very tight and underground! Hotel is one street back from the magificent promenade and the breakfast and rooms were very comfortable. Freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee were good. Manned front desk on the first floor 24 hrs and... More

Located in an ideal part of town two blocks from the beautiful Concha beach and promenade, the hotel is surrounded by old apartment buildings and small commercial establishments along street level… quaint but charming. It is a half-mile walk to old town where innumerable tapas (pintxos) bars can be found. Also located a 10 minute walk to the train station... More

We were pleasantly surprised to stumble across this B&B near the main beach! The reception staff were helpful and accommodating, the room we were offered large clean and very well appointed. As for the price - well its extremely good value for money!

Hotel was vey close to beach and town with places to eat. On the down side nowhere to park outside to unload baggage if you have a car and parking was expensive at 20E a day. The people were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice, basic and reasonably priced. The room we had was the smallest on the floor and... More

A 'boutique' style hostal - room was very comfortable and modern with all that you could need - including a good range of toiletries (sewing kit appreciated!) - one of the better decked out hostal (or hotel) we've stayed in. Our room was directly outside the reception desk and overlooked the street - with a nice view. No noise from... More

This is one of the nicest "hostels" I've been to. It is located just a few meters from "La Concha beach" the biggest beach in the city and rooms are comfortable and modern. In the room you have a TV set, a mini bar, a trouser press, and air conditioning and sometimes a great balcony. The street in front of... More

Really smart hostal, very clean and modern rooms, even had a trouser press! Maybe overpriced for a hostal though. We were with friends and both the bedrooms were affected by outside street noise. It was perfectly placed for the beach and the old town and shopping. We had breakfast at the place which was adequate. We also used their garage... More

Really nice hostal with large very clean and modern rooms. Excellent location near the beach and a short walk to the old town. We had an internal room which had frosted windows as there was no view, it was facing an internal roofed area. This made the room a bit stuffy however there was air conditioning and the room was...

Really liked this hotel, which was excellently located for the beach, and was a short walk to the shops/old town. The decor in the bedrooms is contemporary which I loved. We got a corner room which was very spacious (lovely high ceilings) but unfortunately the downside of it was the street-noise. Additionally there was a lot of overhead noise from... More

This hostel is in an excellent location close to the beach. The main issue was the price - hotel prices for what is really just a hostel. The hotel was clean and felt safe. The beach is less than 2 mins away and the old town is a nice 10 min walk along the sea front. It can be noisy... More
