“Good for the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

Nice rooms. Big bathrooms.
Good staff.
20 Km from San Sebastián. 10 Km from Saint Jean de Luc.

If you are travelling by car, and on the money. This is an excellent choice.

This is a good quality chain of hotels, this location a little dated now but quite acceptable. I found one of the managers quite short and rude with me (I had lost all my cards etc at San Fermin and trying to phone the helpline), but the others very pleasant.
They allow smoking in an "area" downstairs but this means the entire ground floor and first floor are smoky. Leave your room and you're hit with the bad air. Smoking is very important for the Basque people who haven't effectively banned smoking indoors anywhere I found..
Lastly, the first room was by the road, and the double glazing just wasn't cutting the noise, so I promplty requested an alternative, which was quieter..

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Tryp Urdanibia Hotel for four nights and were generally quite pleased with the standard of accomodation.

However, the photos of the hotel that appear on some websites are misleading. If you have good maps, it is extremely easy to get to - in fact, hotels are well signposted in Irun. But this hotel, is on a central reservation between two main roads. And far from the country retreat that its facade suggests, this is a chain hotel - not too different from a high-quality Travelodge back home.

But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for - and I could not complain about the cost of 90 Euros per night (not including breakfast) - when hotels in the centre of the town were charging more than double that.

I take great exception to the reviever who says that Irun is a "dump." It isn't. The town itself (located less than a five minute drive) has its fair share of nice bars and restaurants - and as a tourist, I was made to feel very welcome by its inhabitants.

The great feature about this hotel is its location. From here, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, Hendaye, San Sebastian and the delightful old town of Hondarribia are just a few minutes away - all of which are well worth a visit.

But, be warned, after a hard day's sightseeing, the noise from the road is quite considerable - so sleeping may be a problem. The air-conditioning is not too powerful as well, so be warned.

My friend and his wife are living in the area. The next time I visit, I may look for another hotel (perhaps a pension in the town centre or in Hondarribia) - but if I had to book into the Tryp Urdanibia Hotel again, I wouldn't be too disappointed.

Reasonable quality chain hotel near motorway at edge of Irun. Best feature is location, especially as a journey breaker or overnight trip to spanish basque country from france (which is what we did). irun is a dump but hotel is only 15 mins from san sebastian and 5 from hondarribia (nice little spanish resort across from hendaye). has a reasonable pool which was very welcome on a hot day. slightlydifficult to locate so take a map.
