We stayed here for 2 nights over New Year. We were quite impressed with the hotels itself. Our room was lovely and large. The bathroom was quite good too. The double bed was 2 singles pushed together, but it was so big that this could be forgiven. Staff at reception were generally helpful, but I would say they were not... More

If you like very hot rooms with no way to control the temp other then opening a window this is the place for you. The staff did not attend to our complaints and said we just had to accept the situation. We were here with my family including my mother who suffers from asthma a total of 3 rooms. A... More

Friendly staff, spoke good English and on checkin gave us a map and an overview of how to get around. Easy walk down the hill into town, and the walk back up only took 25 minutes or so, wasn't too steep though might not be so pleasant in the summer heat. Alternatively, multiple bus routes go from town up the... More

We found this hotel to be very clean, comfortable and modern. The hotel staff especially the reception staff were very professional and helpful. We were given a map on check in and shown where everything in town was located which made finding our way around. We didn't find the location to be too out of the way, but could be... More

We were a bit wary after reading some of the other comments but after a 3 night stay, we were happy. The location is out of town which makes it quiet. It's an easy walk downhill into town but definitely a €7 taxi ride back which is not a problem. The food is fine and reasonably priced. Drinks are cheap,... More

Nice quiet hotel in a residential district that is only 10 minutes on the excellent bus service to the city centre. Taxi from the city centre to the hotel is only €7. Breakfast is good nice buffet with everything you could ask for. Rooms were quiet and very clean with very comfortable beds.

It's basically a reasonably nice dormitory in a residential area with not much around it other than apartments. I walked to town pretty easily (20 minutes downhill with a gorgeous sea view for 10 of those minutes) but it is almost all uphill going home. There is a cab stand in the old town that was easy to find and... More

The title is the best way to describe this hotel (a budget hotel chain in the UK). Hotel itself was clean, staff were nice, facilities were as you would expect. However... Parking is a nightmare, especially if there is a wedding in the hotel.we spent 20 mins one night trying to park, and still ended up parking a ten minute... More

In the end we didn't stay here due to a mess up with our booking (not the hotel's fault, I must stress). So we turned up only to find we did not have a reservation and the hotel was full. The lady on reception could not have been more helpful to 2 travellers in a pickle. She spoke excellent English,... More

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
