4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was very nice, with comfortable and spacy rooms, large bed, excellent breakfast and friendly staff. The only minus was the poor WIFI connection but it was partly offset by the lobby computer which worked well. There's a good bus connection to the old town and beach if the weather is too hot for walking. Bus and train station... More

This hotel was perfectly placed between Old San Sebastian and the main soccer stadium. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. Beds were comfortable and the linens were excellent. Bathroom was a generous size for Europe. Bar area was inviting and had excellent service. Front desk was always helpful. The restaurant on the main floor had excellent food! The... More

A friend and I stayed here for three nights and would definitely recommend the hotel on its room, location (by the river and quiet) and especially the most amazing breakfast ... which really set us up for our long days with LOTS of walking! My friend is gluten free and could have done with some gluten free rolls or toast,... More

We loved this place. Firstly to set the mood they delivered Champagne to our room as they must have known we were on honeymoon. The room was great and we were on the 9th floor with a good view of the city. We found the staff very pleasant and the bar great to enjoy and afternoon drink and tapas. Our... More

This hotel is about 25 mins walk outside the main old town area but in a nice neighborhood on the river. There are frequent buses from near the hotel into town. Just go until the last stop and you can catch the bus from the same place you get off. The rooms were a good size, neat and clean. The... More

Pleasant enough hotel overlooking the river. It was interesting to wake up early to see the rowers sculling on the river,I would have liked to use the municipal supplied bicycles in the the parking lot. Nice Bar.

We stayed here and liked the rooms. They are a good size and very clean. I appreciated the extra door which gave some insulation because you can here what is going on in the hallways without it. We were told it was a 15 min walk to the city center. In reality it's closer to 30 minutes if you are... More

We stayed here for two nights and we are ok with our stay. Breakfast was good, room was Clean and staff was friendly. But, location is off, you can hear your neighbours through the walls and wi-fi doesn't really work. If we come back to san sebastian we would definately stay closer to the city center.

The hotel was good but not the best we stayed in on our trip. There is a car park under the hotel that can be accessed by the hotel lift which was convenient, the rooms and breakfast were ok. We walked to the old town from the hotel, it was a quite a long walk but quite a pleasant walk... More

I have stayed in San Sebastián before and know the area. I thought I would give the Silken Amara Plaza hotel a try. We needed parking for the rental car and although this was possible I was surprised to be told on our last day that there was a daily charge, we had stayed 3 nights. This charge was undisclosed...
