“Perfect San Sebastian location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We will be back and we will without a doubt stay here again! The location is perfect, a day on La Concha beach and a night of pinxto hopping in Old Town! The staff was very friendly and arranged transportation for dinner reservations. Look no further and go to San Sebastian and stay here! Sea view rooms were not available during our stay, but we will do our best to get one of those rooms the next time.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room if available, but if not, still worth staying here!

The hotel gave me this really wonderful room as I was there to celebrate my birthday. I had a great balcony with a beautiful view of the beach. The breakfast in the hotel was good; the location was terrific and I never wanted to leave.

Hard to believe such an amazing view can be had for around 100 euros. We had room 22 which does not have a balcony but does have two large bay windows which fully open. Sipping a glass of chilled cava while looking out over La Concha in brilliant sunshine is an unforgettable experience. The staff are very helpful and professional, speaking perfect English, and the location is perfect for the beach. with the old town a short walk away.

I stayed here with my wife after getting married in San Sebastian.
It is a lovely little hotel with an amazing view of the bay. I could just lie in bed forever looking out at the bay. The service and cleaning was immaculate and everyone was really nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the bay.

Spent 2 nights here recently and was very impressed. Check-in was friendly and efficient and the room on the first floor was beautifully decorated and spotless with a fabulous view of the beach from the balcony. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom well appointed. No safe or fridge. Old style room key which is left with reception. Security could be an issue but we had no problem. The hotel foyer/sitting room is decorated in old French style and is simply charming as is the old style elevator. Breakfast was simple enough and the coffee was served in an open jug and quickly went cold. The hotel is nicely located within walking distance of all amenities. Do visit the funicular railway for breathtaking views of the La Concha beach and San Sebastian from the summit.

This has to be, hands down, the best hotel in San Sebastian. I cannot say more wonderful things about our stay here. We had the most incredible room with a terrace looking over the ocean. Being in the room truly enhanced the vacation for us. The doors out to the terrace open all the way, but they also close and then tilt from the top. We slept with them open like this every night and listened to the waves the whole night. We would wake up in the morning smiling. The room was spacious and very clean.

Every night we'd come home and have a glass of wine on the terrace. And in the morning we'd spend every minute on that terrace before leaving for the day.

The hotel is also located directly across from an opening right onto the beach - so convenient. It is also a quick 10 minute walk right to the old part.

Absolutely perfect - if you are visiting San Sebastian this is the place to say!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing the water!

Simple hotel but with lovely, light, large rooms and bathrooms. Great sea view if you can get it. Incredible central, easy and clean, and the best value of any hotel i have ever stayed in. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea view
