Oh I miss you Villa Soro! Beautiful sitting rooms, wonderful service at breakfast, fluffy bedding, sitting on the patio sipping drinks, borrowing bikes and riding to the funicular. I felt like I could stay here forever.

Beautiful hotel, located in a pleasant residential area. Less than 15 minute walk to the center of the old city. Old style manor, lovely large and clean rooms, pleasant staff and a lovely breakfast. Ample free parking on site.

We are extremely particular about our lodging and we thought Villa Soro was great. It is a beautiful place and the service was extraordinary.

We booked Villa Soro as we wanted a more boutique hotel with character. We also had a hired car so the location was perfect for free and secure parking. The location was great - 5 mins walking distance to pintxos in Gros quarter and 15 mins walk to the old town. They didn't tell us about the bikes at check... More

Excellent hotel. Beautiful room, garden, sitting rooms, etc.. The staff was excellent and all the amenities first class. We rode the bicycles they provided all throughout town and I will definitely be back. We loved it.

This hotel was such a great find. The location was terrific and the accommodations were amazing. After a hectic day we returned to the hotel and relaxed in the garden with some fantastic wine.

My wife and I were in a room in the main building, while our friends were in an annex - both rooms were large, well laid-out and well lit, with spacious baths.

What a beautiful, tranquil place to stay in San Sebastián.....so close to the beaches and pintxos bars. There was nothing to complain about....yes, it is at the expensive end but you get all the trimmings- beautiful, spacious rooms; marble bathrooms, delicious breakfasts and helpful staff....what else could you want?

The Beautiful Boutique hotel is just fine, unfortunately the staff is not up to par. The rooms are quite nice with appropriately sized bathrooms. Our stay would have been wonderful but the staff at the reception were just rude. The front desk personnel is quite unprofessional in my point of view. This makes any hotel most unwelcoming. I will not... More
