Very clean hotel with a nice room. Reception staff could not have been more helpful and advisory. Parking is a problem but that could be the same for any hotel in the city. We would definitely stay there again. Preferably when it is less windy.

Great little hotel near the old part of San Sebastián! No lift but only 1 floor up. Rooms small but clean and more than adequate! Staff are very welcoming and eager to offer advice on what's happening in town. All in all a good place for a small break.

Nice rooms, Clean, Great location close to the water and Old Town. Train Station is an easy walk right along the water. Helpful staff. Internal rooms look over a nice courtyard. Close to some great reasonable food. Surfing Beach is close and swimming beach is about a 15 minute walk

Very pleasant staff on reception, I paid a low price so received a room on the inside of the hotel with a window onto a small central courtyard where washing was hanging and there were a lot of loud voices late into the evening. On another visit I would pay more and have an outside facing room, although the bed... More

The staff were wonderful, super helpful and friendly, the only problem was our room. We were on the ground floor, which meant that we were on the street but just below pavement level. No view and constant noise from cars and people walking 3m from our bed. It was a shame as the location is perfect for wandering around old... More

We chose this hotel as we wanted to be central, and we needed parking. The hotel is spotlessly clean, beds comfortable, lots of hot water, good powerful shower and towels for the beach if you wanted them.
