Being disorganised types we left it until the last minute to reserve a hotel in San Sebastián and found all the central hotels to be fully booked. This led us to the Hotel Palacio which is in a pleasant residential part of the town. The staff were helpful and friendly but we had a sense that it was an hotel... More

We searched for an hotel by the beach but it all was fully booked, so we took 2 rooms in this one. It looks nothing like in the pics! Our view was the air conditioning system, our friends room view was the parking area. no body lotion in the shower, the towels were old and the guy in the coffee... More

A decent, basic hotel, providing good value for San Sebastian. The five stars are for the lovely staff who made our stay a pleasure. I also liked the fact that the hotel was not in the hustle and bustle of town. A 1 Euro 75 bus ride from around the corner and you were downtown in 5 minutes or so,... More

We have had our worst night at the hotel due to the bed and that was our complete stay anyway. The room was ready upon our arrival and it was clean as well. The hotel is in a rather quiet neighborhood, possible to reach the center with half an hour walk or by bus which is closeby too. The bed... More

We were here with our tour group and this was one of my favorite places and hotels of our trip! Super clean, modern and roomy suites. Great size bathroom with outlets for curling iron..so rare in European hotels. The breakfast was great with a large eating area plus a little coffee shop and bar in the lobby. It was a... More

I was at the hotel for two nights and i had a great stay. The hotel has a restaurant and a cafe in the lobby. The rooms are very clean and roomy. Getting to the hotel was a challenge since the public transportation can get a little confusing at times. I wouldn't suggest walking because it is at the top... More

A 30 min walk to the old town, and a 10 Euro taxi ride back due to the elevation of the hotel. Situated in a residential area, nice an leafy. Room quite large with very clean and comfortable twin beds, with nice linens and towels. Mini bar extortionate, and so was breakfast (so we didn't bother with them). Big TV... More

We had three single beds in our room, imitation wood flooring and no fridge so it did feel a bit like a hostel. We were also located near the central stairwell and on the first floor so the noise from the restaurant/function room and the bar carried a little too well. Even though it was on the hill above the... More

Spent one night at the Palacio and really enjoyed our stay. We actually had made a small mistake when booking our reservation but management sorted it out in no time, a big plus on such a busy weekend. While not close to city center, taxi into town costed less than 8 euros.

We stayed here for just one night en route to our home in southern Spain. The hotel is uber-clean and the room was perfect. We loved the piped music. The staff were really informative and helpful and gave us two 15% discount vouchers, one for dinner, the other for breakfast. Dinner was fine, but the breakfast buffet was not. The... More
