After some of the reviews on trip advisor we were a little sceptical, DONT BE this is a morden standard four star spanish hotel. The staff are friendly but not in your face, The hotel is spotless and confortable, the rooms cleaned properly and the beds were very wide and confortable with nice quality clean sheets. There is spare pillows and blankets in the rooms.
Our room 307 was the most spacious standard twin room we have ever stayed in complete with large bathroom with window ! The water pressure and hot water were constant at all hours.
The room was a little noisy from the traffic but as the Air Con actually worked as it should it did not matter if you keept the windows shut . You can also leave the air con on wile you are out which makes it really nice to return to a cool room.
The breakfast is from 07.00-10.30 and was a wide selection of meat, cheese, fruit, and bacon and eggs + lots more, very nice eat as much as you like and full self service running buffet.
We ate a couple of nights in the hotel reasturant and the food mainly fish was exellent and not bad value for money aprox 50 euros for two meals and bottle of wine and water.
One of the best features of this hotel is that it is a 5 min walk to the orrenetta beach ( which is beautful ) it is about 10 mins walk to the combe of the sea sculpture park and finicular railway which takes you up mount urgual with fantastic views nice cafe bar and a faided fun fair.
Have a drink in the Mercure hotel which has the best sea views from the huge lounge windows.
It takes aprox 30 mins stroll from the hotel into the old town by walking along the seafront promanade or beach which is very pleasant, alternatively the number 5 and 25 buses run frequently from outside the hotel with flat fares of 1.50 euros
most of the hotel staff can speak a little English and if you have some Spanish you can get by.
San Sebastian is a lovely resort quite classy like St Tropez or Biaritz but in Spain and can be quite pricey but we feel the hotel offered good value for money.
