“Hesperia Donostia - very good stay in San Sebastian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Stayed at the Hesperia Donostia for two nights in December, thought this was a great value for the money. Very, very clean, spacious room, well-appointed with a comfortable bed. Bathroom is large with a great shower, unlimited hot water and large soft towels. The staff is excellent – when we had issues with the internet connection, they went well out of their way to make sure we were satisfied. So much so that they called the provider directly and made arrangements just for our use. Many thanks a kudos to Amaia at the front desk, she made our stay most enjoyable. Overall a tremendous value.

This hotel is not in the center but you can use buses 5 or 25, which would bring you in 15 minutes to there. Rooms are good, and breakfst is good too. It offers internet connection and lots of cheap and qualitu snacks during the afternoon.

Ì highly recommend this hotel, for those who want a good hotel, and do not want to expend a huge amount of money in a property located in the city center, since it is very well connected with bus.

Yes, it's a couple of kms from the beach, no it's not in the Old Town. But this hotel is still good value when visiting San Sebastian. We stayed here for a night and they still have buses 5 and 25 that drop you and pick you up straight outside the hotel. Car parking is generally for free here too.

The rooms are clean, compact and have good air con and heating. Our balcony was excellent too and the staff, as they were last time, were absolutely excellent.

Room Tip: A balcony is good.

Worth the money! The hotel is a really nice place, with good staff and pleasant rooms, not so large but not small. Seems like almost a family place where you have parking lot and fairly close to the city! Really recommend!

Was a good hotel, nice, new and clean, courteous and helpful staff.
Only small issue being that it is 4.5km away from the good evening spots in the "old town". Though this might not be an issue for all those who need a good walk to sober up on their way home from a night out eating wonderful pinxos and drinking beer at multiple different establishments.
Early to Mid August was the perfect time to visit San Sebastian for the festival, this hotel being a little away from the action may have been beneficial for sleep.

It was a pleasant 5 nights stay. The room has all the basic necessities and the customer service over the desk was better than expectant as they were quite thoughtful. However, I wouldn't say that the place has a good sound proof system.The breakfast buffet doesn't has much varieties and the refilling attempt wasn't frequent enough.

Room Tip: Better not choose rooms close to the elevator. The sound proof system for the place are not really u...

Not in the center but on the bus line for bus 5 and 25. Literally! Picks up and drops off right at the hotel and its a short trip to the center. Room size was good. Floor was a but dirty on the highway so a bit of noise. I had to beg to get the air conditioning turned on but succeeded. Bathroom was decent. Restaurant downstairs was pricey for what it is. Secure covered parking for about €15 per night. I recommend it should rooms in town be too pricey. Ask for a room facing away from highway
