Palacio De Aiete is a nice quiet hotel in San Sebastian, with attentive and helpful staff, spacious rooms and pleasant atmosphere. however, the hotel is located up hill, away from downtown and beaches. it is possible to walk down to the beach or town (20 min) but it is recommended to take a taxi back to the hotel due to...

A small hotel which is OK for short 2 day stay, a bit out of the center, but for the price quite OK, it is not high class but all is clean and as it should be. Bus to go to center is nearby or by taxi for cc 10 euro. Free parking right in front. Wifi works well, bit... More

Nothing to get too excited about here, previous reviews sum it up, located in suburbs and you need a taxi to get in to city. Fairly bland decor a little sterile. Does not provide 24 hour room service which is a bummer when traveling and just want to relax and have a bite to eat rather than trapese in to... More

The main drawback is location, far from the city center in s residential area with no shops/restaurants. The facilities are fine, not excellent, but some parts of the room need an update (shower for example). Restaurant is good with a nice fixed price menu, good quality. Best is the service and attention of employees.

We chose this hotel for a stop-over between Santander and the French pyranees, and as car parking was imperative and the reviews were good we thought what the heck. The hotel itself is mainly a business venue. There is a restaurant (closed on Sunday) and a small bar in the main lobby. The most impressive thing for us was the... More

This was my first visit to San Sebastian and, it will not be the last, now that I have found out how friendly the Basque people can be. The Hotel about which I write this review was a shot in the dark, having arrived in the city with nowhere to stay. The hotel is certainly 4* material, with views over... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over New Year. We were quite impressed with the hotels itself. Our room was lovely and large. The bathroom was quite good too. The double bed was 2 singles pushed together, but it was so big that this could be forgiven. Staff at reception were generally helpful, but I would say they were not... More

If you like very hot rooms with no way to control the temp other then opening a window this is the place for you. The staff did not attend to our complaints and said we just had to accept the situation. We were here with my family including my mother who suffers from asthma a total of 3 rooms. A... More

Friendly staff, spoke good English and on checkin gave us a map and an overview of how to get around. Easy walk down the hill into town, and the walk back up only took 25 minutes or so, wasn't too steep though might not be so pleasant in the summer heat. Alternatively, multiple bus routes go from town up the... More
