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.

Thanks for your nice review, it honor us and our city, but next time you visit us we will give you some tips to avoid getting "bored" in France. There are lots of things to do too. Yet staying at Hondarribia gives you the opportunity to enjoy the ambience and culture until later at night . ;-) Best regards! More

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

Very clean, simple, cosy. Good rooms, good breakfast, no complaints at all. Little honesty bar was a nice touch, pool area a great spot to relax. In keeping with the whole area. A great little find. Ample parking. Perfect lay over or long weekender.

Stopped off in Hondarribia on a drive through France, Spain and Portugal. Friendly and helpful staff who made checking in an easy experience. The restaurant was very good with a selection from the menu. The hotel was good enough that we actually booked the same hotel for the return leg of our trip. One pice of advice though; if you...
