A lovely Villa. Beautifully enchanting - inside and out. Lobby, staircase, library/living area with fireplace, bar and breakfast room were just right. Stylish and spacious rooms with outside terrace for tea, coffee or better yet a glass of wine. One of San Sebastian's best for that home away from home feeling. Comfort and service "the best".

San Sebastian is one of the coolest Spanish seaside resorts, offering great surfing and gourmet cuisine. And our stay at the Villa Soro made it even better. Our room (12) was spacious with a comfortable king-size bed, an outside terrace, and a large marble bathroom stocked with Penhaligon products. Breakfast was lovely and we enjoyed having a drink in their... More

Dear Lundungirl, First of all I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. Regarding your comments, I would like to point out some matters. You booked the rooms through an online travel agency (you paid to them, not to the hotel). Some weeks ago we changed the system and during the migration process there was a failure... More

We stayed at Villa Soro for several days and enjoyed our visit. Great staff, terrific rooms with a view out over the rooftops of the old area of Donostia, Spain. We will always stay there if there is a room for us.

Quiet large room with a good bed and excellent bathroom. Parking is provided and the location is excellent--along the bus route that goes directly downtown, but within easy walking distance of the beaches and the city. And the staff is excellent. What is there not to like?

Stayed at Villa Soro for the third time on our way to Spain and it was excellent as usual.

Sadly we were only able to stay one night as we were passing through. Nevertheless we thought it was a wonderfully elegant villa, beautifully restored and converted for hotel use. Our room was luxurious, the bathroom large, well lit. Reception friendly and helpful. Close enough to the centre to offer peace and quiet and a good nights rest.
