It's where you want to live. It's a former grand house that has been turned into a very well done luxury hotel. We used it for our base in San Sebastian area. We had ground floor room, which probably had less light than the upstairs rooms, yet felt more secluded from the other rooms. Property a bit back from the... More

Elegant accommodation on outskirts of San Sebastián, about a 30 minute walk to Old Town and a 10 minute bus ride on the no 13. Nothing too much trouble, friendly cheery staff, excellent large rooms with everything you could wish for. Elegant lounge/sitting rooms for guests. Charming ladies in breakfast room dressed in black and white with crisp white aprons... More

This hotel is a twenty to twenty five minute walk to town so if you don't like to walk or bike this is not the place for you. We like to walk so it was not a problem. The hotel is a former mansion and is beautifully restored. Our room was in the newer building and It was large by... More

We stayed one night in this beautiful hotel. It looks like a home, but is a highly efficient and beautiful full-service hotel. One of the things that frustrates me about hotels in general is the lack of good light and power outlets. This hotel had plenty of both, yet still feels quaint and charming. The staff was helpful in giving... More

Villa Soro it's a beautiful hotel, very well located, 15 minutes walk to the old town. Their service is spectacular and the breakfast really good. We had a great time and definitely recommend this hotel to any family traveling to San Sebastian. Also they have free parking in case you are driving.

We had an absolute fabulous time in San Sabastian. Villi Soro is a flat 20 minute walk to old town where the food is incredible. Pinchos were fabulous. Bikes are available and are are must to use to navigate the far beach. Easy ride which is extremely do-able. The staff at Villo Soro are great. Joe the bartender was extremely... More

We were recommended by friends and they were dead right. A lovely hotel with a beautiful comfortable bedroom. The staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel quality and decor were excellent and whilst a little way out of town there are plenty of buses and taxis - or off course borrow the bikes! I guess our only negative... More

We found the hotel to be very clean with a staff that is very customer oriented. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was found to be satisfying. Access to the sea and old town is only a short walk away. We definately would return to this hotel if we were to visit San Sebastian again and highly recommend this place to... More

Stayed 5 nights last week, hotel staffs (breakfast, receptions and bar) wonderful. Pintxos bars and dinner recommendations are all very good. Hubby on blood thinner and needed INR, staff helped find the hospital that would do coagucheck, this is over and above what I would expect hotelier would do. No.13 bus gets you right at doorstep of Old Town.Taxi inexpensive,... More
