I agree with others that it is not a 4 star hotel, but we are still pleased with our stay. Pros: 1. Very warm welcome and friendly staff. They introduced us to Hondarribia, provided plenty of maps, gave recommendations on the places to eat 2. Secure and safe parking for a fee (15€ per day, if I remember correctly) 3. Decent breakfast with good selection of meats, cheeses, fruit, pastries and freshly made omelettes. 4. Free snacks and wine in the evening is a very nice touch 5. Excellent Nespresso coffee all day 6. If you are planning to go to San Sebastián, the bus stop is 2 minutes walk from the hotel 7. The free elevator to the Hondarribia old town is also within 2 minutes walk from the hotel 8. The promenade is just around the corner. You can take a long walk along the marina and have lunch or dinner by the sea. Cons 1. The hotel windows are not noise proof, so you can hear your neighbors’ screaming kids during the day. Noise was not a problem at night 2. Guests smoke on the balconies and you can smell cigarette smoke in the room 3. Pseudo-Nespresso machine in the room is useless. I tried to make cup of coffee and it was not drinkable 4. Bathroom is very dated and needs serious upkeep. It was not possible to use stationary shower, which just did not stay in place.

Absolutely not a 4 star hotel!! Room ok but very noisy. Windows about 30 year old and you can hear everything from outside. Staff not really helpful. Breakfast not ready at 8. Bread arrive at 8.30 and the servant asked for eggs about 45 min later. For a tea I had to go to the reception. Nobody in the breakfast room!! That is not a hotel for 174 euro at night!!!

It’s got pluses and minuses. Good location, a nice old fashioned swimming pool (beware: pool depth inadequately signed), and a nice grass area to relax in. Very good staff, but limited in number - so no offers to help with luggage. Parking on-site is a bonus - parking in this town is a nightmare. Breakfast is OK, not great. But: our room was way too small and basic, with inadequate storage; and everywhere you look, it’s all a bit tatty, and crying out for some tlc and a lick of paint. So recommended as a place to stay, but what this isn’t is a 4* hotel.

We stayed one night, and came via car. They have car park spaces for registered guests which in this small but bustling town is a bit of a must. Pool is old school but a nice asset. Would not have stayed here for more than the quick one night stop over on our way through the region. Town is famous for its Tapas (or Pintox as they say in Basque Country I think) but it felt a little too busy and overrated food wise in our view. Decent standard Euro breakfast at the Hotel. Overall its the friendly service at this hotel that stands out, not the facilities per se. That said the family room was good value.

Good location, nearby the old city. Kind reception . Easy parking facility. Breakfast was good. On the internet the dinner looked very good, but we can't comment on it as the restaurant was closed that day. For tapas we went to the touristic center .

The rooms were not clean. There was an odour of smoke in the rooms although they pretend to be a non smokin hotel and More in particilar our rooms ... green surrounding is not taken care off. Terrine view out of our Windows: the rubbish bevindt je hotel. Noisy air conditioning . Matrassen not excellent at all. Breakfadt ok but Shouf have been inclusief innige price. If you use international prices, 490 fir twi rooms you neef to bes BKR to live up to international hotel standards. A simpel two star hotel that should at the most be prices half of it .. Especially in Spain. Nicht behoren was half the price in Bilbao ( also badsue country) but so much More comfort, Quailty, cleaniness, quietness, ... accorfibg to international hotel standards! In other Words: big disappointment this hotel.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here and chose the hotel for it's small size and location between the marina and the old town. We were very happy with our room and friendly staff. The pool area was perfect.
