Every so often a hotel or restaurant comes along, that is just brilliant. We have found just four in our travels and this is one of them. Firstly located a 15 minute walk from the premium restaurant Arzak is a bonus for foodies. Or 5 minutes from a hoard of pinxtos options in Gros. To the old city is about... More

Fabulous location. Large rooms and bathroom. Supper responsive service. Best of all it's a short walk to all the sights.

After coming from the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at (Hotel Marques de Riscal in Rioja), I was hoping that this hotel lived up to my expectations. It certainly did. Although a little off the beaten path from the heart of San Sebastian, it was nice after the large meals that we had to be able to walk home... More

A wonderful place to spend a week or more,its about a 10 minute walk to the main beach but for those who enjoy walking this is an added bonus. Clean,classy,quiet, well managed with a very helpful can do attitude of staff.Even when silly guests leave mobile phones in a taxi,Maria on duty rang around all the taxi operators and found... More

We wonder if there is another hotel of the same name and appearance that is actually on a quiet street and another 600m closer to Arzak. The road out the front is actually a busy thoroughfare and if you're walking to the restaurant and the day is warm (which was our situation), it's more than annoying that it's twice as... More

The staff are very friendly and the rooms were well-appointed and very quiet... and non-smoking! Maybe it was by luck, but I believe we had one of the best rooms in the villa. It was large, especially by European standards, and included a walk-out...maybe it is not close to the beach with a sea view but apart from this a... More

Disappointing and misleading are the words that spring to mind when I think of this hotel. We stayed for two nights in early September this year. When booking online you are led to believe you will be staying in the fabulous main house (as per the website photo)and there is no mention of a separate annex /extension type building hidden...

Upon making a reservation with Venere I contacted the hotel and requested a room in the older home and not the newer annex. I've been put in the newer annex in other hotels in Bruge, Budapest and Granada and I just don't like to be there. The hotel said they would do everything they could to accommodate my wishes but...

Villa Soro was so highly recommended on review sites that it may not have been able to live up to our expectations. We were in the annex building with a small patio. We noticed a moldy smell inside and out, heavily covered by room spray or cleaners right after the room was cleaned. It may be caused by damp air,... More

Perfect and quiet place to enjoy a magnificent weekend in a wonderful city, and next to the best restaurant in town.
