The original 'high tech' concept was a bit odd and doomed to become dated. I seems like a lot of money must have been spent of fittings to fit that theme. The bathroom of my room look like something from an expensive boutique hotel, whereas the bedroom has 4 fold bunk beds in addition to the main bed (I was... More

We stayed in this hotel in the weekend to go to a wedding, first I couldn't believe that this was the hotel we had booked the façade that was facing the beach need some construction had, it had metal structures that seemed to be place to hold the balcony. When entering it had this supposed High Tech decor that seemed... More

We stayed at High Tech Hotel for one night in December. We "upgraded" to a front room with a view of the water for 10 euros. The front desk was very accommodating to make the change. However, the balcony could not be opened or used because the entire water-facing balcony structure is basically condemned by the city. It is very... More

We arrived after a lengthy travel day and were happy to discover that the renovated hotel was modern and very comfortable for a family of four (children aged 16 and 14 years of age). We had the seaview and loved watching the world unfold from our balcony. The room was clean and efficiently laid out with a bunk bed to... More

Stayed here mid August and hotel worked well for us. Right by the beach and area has many bars/restaurants some close by, others are worth the effort finding in either the old fishing port or in Algorta proper. Metro (Neguri) is a 10-15 minute walk. Hotel room was smallish by US standards and closet is minimal. Room/bathroom was always clean,... More

My wife, two daughters aged 17 and 12 and I stayed here for three nights in a family room. Hotel was clean and the staff more than helpful. However the hotel website stated that children in a family room could eat breakfast free. This was not the case. It turns out that children under 12 could eat for half price.... More

Lovely staff and nice rooms, each with its own laptop computer and strangely an exercise bike! The pintxos (Basque for tapas) next door in the café bar are excellent. The Tamarises restaurant next door and upstairs is Michelin star quality and not cheap. This hotels "claim to fame" was that the England football team stayed here during the 1984 World... More
