Staid here for a week while doing a VBS at a local school. The location was perfect, we were close to town and close to the Catholic school we worked with as well. The staff at the hotel are super friendly and willing to help how ever they could. AMAZING shower pressure. Rooms were fair size, leave the window open... More

This hotel was very well positioned to reach all parts of the city, very friendly and helpful staff and the facilities for me was good this included ironing facility which was very useful. I did not eat at the hotel but it looked fine and sensibly priced all in all a very good hotel and would stay again.

Way too expensive for the quality of services. The comfort of the bed was low and we could hear the vibrations of the cell phone in the next door room ! Breakfast not included with a 120-euro, low standard room... No comment. The hotel and the room were clean though.

This is a really good value option for the area. Think that the place is usually used for student accommodation, but it's very clean and simple and the staff are very helpful. Breakfast is simple, and you only have to pay for what you'd like, so it's good value if you're on a room-only price.

Intriguing hotel. This hotel is a hall of residence for most of the year but during holiday time it's a fascinating place to stay, even on the approach the exterior makes you wonder where you are going to be staying!. The staff were extremely friendly on checking in to a typical hotel reception, you wouldn't guess it was a hall... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean, the view is nice and the breakfast is good. There is free parking on the parkinglot in front of the hotel. It's a 10/15 minute walk to Playa de Ondarreta. From there it's a nice walk to the city centre. Not to far. If you don't like to walk, there... More

It's a university not a hotel. But is well equipped, clean and cheap as chips. You can proper doubles and twin rooms fully ensure, there's a lounge that turns into a bar at night time, not too far from the beach at the end of San Sebastián and just a short taxi into the centre of town...... What's not to... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a bigger European troop. Choose for the large open car park for our motorhome and its price, both of which were good. The hotel is on the outskirts of the town ( which is a great great place to visit) but there's is a bus stop about a five minute walk away.... More

I got some bad information from another person that had stayed here saying they have A/C, which they do not, the rooms during the day were very warm with no breeze unless you open the door and window at the same time. The beds are as soft as concrete, but they do have a desk and plenty of storage and... More
