My husband booked a surprise weekend trip for us to San Sebastian and the Amara Plaza was perfect. We arrived at Biarritz airport and caught the PESA bus to SS - we were pleasantly surprised when the bus pulled up right outside the hotel - my husbnad couldn't have planned it any better. Check in was smooth and our room was very nice. My only warning would be on the heating/air conditioning system. We cam back later in the evening and our room was boiling. I went to reception and the guy told us that system is moved to heating in October and we should just leave the system off if we want a cool room. It would have been good if someone had told us that before as we had to move rooms that night. Both rooms we were in were clean and nice and modern - and nice an quiet considering the bus station is just outside.
The location was very convenient for us. We hired the bikes that are available all around the city - you can organise this at the tourist information centre - and there was a stop right outside the hotel. With the bikes we were at the old town in about 5 minutes. It was probably about a 15 -20 minute walk which was also nice.
Breakfast was lovely - really great they served for so long - especially after the amount of food we ate in the evening. We generally went for breakfast about 10:00 - 10:30 and there was a huge spread. My husband especially liked to iberico ham!
We had a brilliant time in San Sebastian - we loved the city and all the amazing food. We will definitely recommend this hotel to others - and hope to be back ourselves soon!
