Bangkok, Thailand
Reviewed 1 week ago

it is a nice hotel. A little bit far from San Sebastian old town. With 25 minutes walk to old town isn't a bad experience. Nice view walking along the beach to old town. Room is clean. Recommend for anyone who would like to have a nice stay in San Sebastian

We're a same sex couple and found the staff to be very warm and welcoming. They were helpful and good with English for the moments where we struggled with Spanish. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne on the house, as it was our honeymoon. Lovely concierge and clean, modern room with reasonable room service prices. Best thing...

Although a nice hotel, the thing that let it down was the breakfast. The continental breakfast looked quite nice, but the cooked breakfast was well below average. The fried eggs looked as though they had been fried hours before. They were hard, cold and stuck to the serving dish. The bacon also looked as though it had been cooked well...

Very pleased with our family stay .. Sparkling wine on arrival .. Given a corner suite which was better than interconnecting rooms. Great walk to town .. Shortcuts available, which made the journey interesting.

This is really a comfortable hotel but a little expensive. The breakfast is not included and ridiculously expensive as well. The hotel has a free shuttle to the beach, the drivers are really polite. Swimming pool is really nice. the Wifi wasn't good enough. The connection was bad.

The hotel gives a general view of San Sebastian: it is very beautiful but veryyy expensive. I think it is without a doubt the most expensive city in Spain. People are very nice though. I have stayed in similar hotels for quite less, and better service than the one we received here.

We stayed at Barcelona Costa Vasca when we visited San Sebastián. Located a short drive (or 15 minute walk) from the heart of San Sebastián action, Barcelo Costa Vasca isn't quite in the center of it all. But it's close enough. The particular hotel room we were given had a smaller footprint, a 30" tv, a hot pot, a mini...
