This is a very comfortable hotel with big rooms above the city of San Sebastian. It is very clean and the staff are very welcoming. The menu is limited but with so many good places to eat in the city, this is not a problem. Amazing views from the gardens to the city and the sea.

This hotel is a long way out of town up a steep hill. Be warned that it does cater for weddings and on these days there will be nowhere to escape the party. The behaviour of the guests was so bad, drunken people, one even dropped his trousers on the terrace. Broken glass left on the lawn and not cleared... More

The room we stayed in was nice and the view (facing the sea) was great. Everything else was disappointing. The restaurant was a mess (not really very clean) and the staff was really upset we wanted to have lunch. The food was clearly microwaved and far too expensive for the quality. The staff wasn't really helpful or even nice. There... More

The location is lovely, the hotel is functional and mainly clean. There are nice grounds and a swimming pool... I would say however that the atmosphere lacks a little something. Partly I think the staff do not help, if they smiled and were more friendly and engaged in making you feel welcome, that might help. As others have mentioned, it... More

I think some of the reviews I've read are a little harsh although maybe that's because the hotel presents itself as 4* when perhaps 3* would be a fairer grade and perhaps also because San Sebastian is ridiculously expensive for hotels (it is after all just a little seaside town with a nice harbour and beach,not London) and so expectations...

Although 4*, the hotel remains in the 70's. rooms clean but shabby, some things work, wifi in some rooms, air-con in others. Although room service, no tea coffee making facilities or mini bar. Breakfast was appalling, the name Fawlty Towers sprung to mind, when trying to obtain a knife to spread jam! Views are fantastic, although sat nav totally failed... More

This is just an old fashioned Spanish 4 star hotel, that should have been downgraded years ago. The rooms are old fashioned, with furnishings worn away. The bathroom we had was fairly basic, with a brown stained bath tub. A lick of paint would cheer the place up a a little, especially in the rooms and the hotel reception area.... More

friendly welcome, the room was modern, clean and comfortable. The outside of the hotel reminds of good old times of the 50s which we likes. If you have a thing for retro you'll like it here. The views over the terrace are amazing. It is a little far out of town...

After having spend a day in San Sebastian we decided to spend the last night at Hotel Gudamendi which is really outside San Sebastián on one of the hills. Have a real close look on your GPS to reach the hotel safely, it’s tucked away between the trees. Views are amazing from the hotels terrace. Rooms are a bit old... More
