Nothing was too much trouble, great welcome, great value, great hotel. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped and although a little dated in decor, extremely well kept and clean. Very large twin beds with additional pillows and blankets if required. Huge balcony. More of a traditional hotel which is a breath of fresh air after the ultra modern city...

We stayed here cause the starting point for the Camino is right beside this hotel. Even thought the hotel is right beside the Camino the hotel staff had no clue what we where saying when we asked about the Camino. The breakfast at this hotel is good but it very limited.

This hotel is located a few kilometers way from the old part of San Sebastian where the action is, about 6-9 Euro by taxi. However, it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and is an a peaceful, quiet neighborhood. There is a grocery across the street and a few bars/restaurants within walking distance.

Stayed here for 4 nights and the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Considering the price we paid, it was lacking finishing touches like tea and coffee making facilities and even a couple of bottles of water on arrival. For £150 you'd expect all this plus breakfast thown in too. Not worth the money but all in all located in...

We went over budget for this hotel and were not disappointed! This hotel is very clean and modern with very spacious rooms for Europe. It is a short walk from a beach and only a 40 minute walk from the old town (or ten minute cab). We are a young couple and found this to be a very nice stay...

Good size clean rooms close to the bay, short walking distance. Service is friendly. Rooms have fridge but no coffee making facility. Recommended for short visit stay if you do not aspire for more than basic comfortm

The rooms are nice enough and the location close to the beach is great, although an 8 euro taxi from the old town at the other end of the bay. Little problems such as a complete lack of ironing facilities (save for a laundry service which stops at 1pm every day which is not helpful if you arrive later in...

If you need a hotel just to sleep, this hotel does the job. Worthy of a 3+ star. Less than 5 minutes from Ondarreta Beach and Mount Igueldo. 15 mins from La Concha Beach. Clean tidy and efficient with friendly staff. Would repeat again for sure. Ample places to eat in parallel streets.

Clean and well-structured. The big drawback are the thin walls, if you're a light sleeper -- whenever your neighbors close a door, a drawer, or a closet, you are definitely going to hear it. The staff has good and bad moments: sometimes they are all smiles, sometimes they barely register your presence. But overall, they're helpful. It lies close to...
