We found out this familiar cozy hotel last year and repeat it again a week ago. For us, It´s a place to repeat every year!!! The service is great, very well situated near the center and the restaurant is fantastic. We will repeat it again!!!

A really nice hotel close to the beach and the market and old square. Facilities are very good, staff was very polite and helpful and great place to stay. A very pleasant experience. Lucky to have booked this else would not have visited hondarribia which is a lovely town and easy to drive to san sebastien.

This hotel is ideal for anyone needing a stop off near San Sebastián airport, it's about a 5-10 minute taxi ride away. It is comfortable, modern and clean and the bath and outdoor pool were absolutel heaven after a full day travelling.

The room I stayed in was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful in planning my onward journey. A good breakfast too; I would have liked to stay longer and had time to use the facilities more!

Clean and comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, very helpful and friendly staff. Hondarribia is my very favourite spanish town with nice people, amazing pinxos and wine, a clear sea, green mountains and lots of rain :). Don't go to the French side; it's boring except for the beach where once can surf.

Good location,near everything you would need. Hotel has good staff ,friendly. Good size standard room, breakfast was acceptable. Waitresses were excellent and restaurants aplenty in town . Ferry to Hendaye sadly not operating the day we tried due to weather but easy bus to Irun and then very short ride on Euskotren to Hendaye for lunch.

I loved this place. The staff was friendly, the rooms were minimalist and spacious and the grounds were lovely. We had the buffet for breakfast which wasn't exactly cheap, but was delicious (they will happily make you an omelette or eggs cooked any way you like, just ask). The only downside I could think of for this place was that... More

Unfortunatelly we cannot "move" the building to other "hot place" around the city, but you will love this place in summertime while enjoying the swimmimg pool on your own and sleeping all night long without crowd noises everywhere. Thanks for taking your time publishing this review and of course, we hope to see you back soon. More

We had a short break in the town and found the Hotel to be in an ideal location for walking to the centre and to see the various sights. Room was comfortable, wi-fi excellent, and staff extremely helpful and English speaking, so everything was fine for us. Tried the pool but it was pretty cold!

We enjoyed our stay in the spacious room and especially the huge terrace. Also it is great to have the swimming pool area. The hotel is modern and rooms are spacious and of modern design. However, it is also rather expensive to stay here... The hotel is close to the old part of town with easy access to the restaurant... More
