A comfortable room and I especially liked the two heavy doors to the bathroom and the corridor for good sound insulation. More hotels should do this. Also the variety offered by the buffet breakfast was most appreciated when staying a while a fixed menu can soon get tedious. This hotel is very handy for the University, but a good walk...

We were only here for 1 night but had a very pleasant stay. The room was very good and the staff were kind and helpful - in particular Esther/Esta who was EXCELLENT and she very kindly arranged to courier some clothes to the UK which the other half had forgotten in the wardrobe of our room! Gracias!!

The Silken Amara Plaza hotel was an unexpected delight. Having read several reviews regarding the location being a little outside the "real action" of San Sebastian, we were pleased we stayed here as we got a taste of the "real San Sebastian" slightly away from the tourist strip. There are many excellent features to this hotel: great value for money;...

A very nice property with a friendly staff. Its about a 30 minute walk to the old quarter where all the good restaurants are located, but its a nice walk along the river or through new town streets. The room was well appointed, bed was comfortable and the bathroom was modern. My only disappointment was the walls and floors were...

Great base around a 15 minute walk to the centre of town along either the river or through pleasant streets of the new town, which means you get the chance to stumble across some hidden gems (bars and shops). It is true that the coach station used to be right next to the hotel but it has moved about 2...

Stayed here for three nights a few weeks ago, found the staff friends & welcoming, we had breakfast included & found it to be a good spread. The room was fine. The location was good, a walk into town can be made either by wandering along the river side or down other streets, either way is fine, we enjoyed both....

Contemporary and clean. We liked location- walking distance to shops. A bit of a walk, but we enjoyed the scenery. Restaurant is excellent in hotel. Friendly associates. Tapas bar very nice. Safe in room to secure valuables. We had a park view . Lovely

My husband and I stayed at Silken Amara Plaza for 3 nights for our honeymoon. The staff were polite and spoke English well. Our room was a decent size, very clean, and the bed extremely comfortable. The only issue with it was that we requested a double bed but it was two single beds pushed together. The wifi was slow...
