After a harrowing drive from the Bilbao airport in the snow...yes snow, we were greeted by the pleasant young lady at the desk. The bellman took our bag to the room, said "Very nice room" and vanished without a trace. #14 is facing the street and extremely well appointed. A comfortable bed with no street noise made for a great... More

Hotel Villa Soro is a beautifully restored mansion, in a neighborhood not far from town. The staff is helpful and friendly. There were plenty of pleasant and luxurious surprises while staying there. Highly recommend.

This hotel is dressed to the nines! Beautiful art, lovely rooms and impeccable service. Breakfast buffet plus specialty items cooked as you wish. Beautiful outside patio for nice weather dining or a glass of wine. Walking distance to downtown San Sebastián. What more could you ask for in a hotel?

Stayed with my husband in November for 4 nights while visiting San Sebastian. The place is not very centrally located, however easily accessible by car. If you are determined walker, you can reach old town in 20 min by foot. Villa offers free parking, which was helpful as parking in the city proved to be somewhat difficult. Reception was helpful...

Stayed here for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. Paid more to treat ourselves to a bigger room in the main house. Everything about the room (furnishings, bathroom, heating) was perfect. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate for us and the quality of the food was excellent. Probably a 30 minute walk into the main part... More

We stayed here for a week while on our honeymoon in September. The hotel is picturesque. The rooms are spacious and very pretty. The staff was amazing and so helpful! There are complimentary bikes for the guests to use. That is how we got around town. The only way to go! So much fun!

Villa Soro is a lovely hotel, located in a 19th century mansion, though in a main road, it has a large front patio which makes it really quiet. Our room was large and comfortable.
