A convenient location and a simple hotel. Not high on facilities or luxuries in the room but clean, tidy and sufficient. Staff were very welcoming and helpful when needed - spoke excellent English. Self service breakfast was again simple but adequate.

We traveled for over two weeks in Spain and this was our biggest disappointment. The location is fine because it is near the Oldtown San Sebastian. Parking was not too difficult because we parked in the municipal parking garage essentially across the street. However the value of this hotel was just not there. It was overpriced. Our room was noisy... More

This is an expensive town! Stumbled (literally) across this hotel after attempting several others that were completely full. Very nice front desk folks. Basic room, no amenities. Construction right outside our window. Good location, fine for a night. Charged us 100 euro for a double early September.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in July. Small modern hotel in the Spanish San Sebastian, a total of 12 rooms. This hotel is located in the center of San Sebastian, near the beautiful beach Zurriola and Kursaal. The hotel is walking distance over the bridge to the old town with many famous tapas bars. Our room was... More

Stayed for 2 nights on business. Good location. 10 minute walk to main old town with its tapas!; close to the surfing beach. On a main road and above a bar but no noise inside, with windows closed. Reception is simple: all the reception staff were friendly, spoke English, most spoke French as well. Very helpful. 12 rooms on the... More

It seems that hotels in San Sebastian are expensive - this one certainly was. It was perfectly adequate, even if the room was small and basic. Decor is modern and clean, and altough it's not in a particularly pretty area, it was quiet, so we had a good night's sleep. We di8dn't bother with breakfast which also seemed basic and... More

This one star hotel is very clean and modern and ideally situated for the old town and beaches. The rooms are small and basic but are modern and the bathrooms are fine. Parking is across the road in an underground car park, and you can get reduced rates at the hotel by prebooking (still 54 euros for 3 nights). Staff... More

The location of the hotel is excellent! Close to old town and the beach too. The staff is very friendly, not with great English but friendly. They recommended really good choices for restaurants, bars and transport. Cant remark how clean the place was and the cleaners were excelent every single day ( we stayed for a week). The rooms are...

This was another little gem of a hotel in Basque country. Safe, clean, and friendly staff. Across the street, behind a music hall, is Gros Beach. When in San Sebastian you must do the pincho bars; pinchos/tapas are little gustatory delights washed down with their regional white wine, poured into the glass from a height of about a foot. Try...

My spouse and I found this hotel disappointing and overpriced for the amenities offered, at least for the suite, which was around €175/night. Really expensive for a one-star, and despite the modern hotel look of the website, this IS a one star. The rooms are not soundproof at all. AC is controlled by the front desk. We were there in...
