A little to far from the beach to be ideal but this is reflected in the price. You get used to walking the 25 minutes into the centre and shops and bars help you on the way. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent. Rooms ok, towels good and mattress quite comfy. Only sting in the tail is the 19... More

In a beautiful city, decently located, within 20 minutes walking distance of the old town, but a lot quieter. Biggest issue I had is that while the air conditioning seemed to be working, it must have been centrally controlled at such a high tempature, it was almost like having no air at all. To make matters worse, the room consistently... More

The Amara Plaza located 15-20 minute walk from the centre, is ideally placed near the river which offers a picturesque walk into the Casco Viejo. Hotel rooms were comfortable, air con seemed to work, but temperature was centrally controlled, and dont get me started on the wifi, worst I have ever experienced and if you use Apple products, forget it!!...

I stayed 2 nights at the hotel. They are in a good location, not too far from the bus and train station, and facing the river. Really good breakfast buffet too! The receptionists spoke English and were very helpful. I asked about getting a bus to Bilbao, and they told me the times they buses left. I also had a... More

A great place to stay for our 5 days here. It is a bit away from the beach and old town, but the property is excellent. The staff is terrific. The rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfast is great, many many items to choose.

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
