Really nice hotel and really friendly staff. It is walking distance from restaurants and the airport. The rooms were very nice and clean. The only thing we had trouble with was the air conditioning stopped working in the evening, but other than that we had a pleasant stay.

Fine and clean hotel with modern rooms, near old city center. With free parking space. On monday the hotelrestauraurant was closed, so we had diner near the harbour. We didn't have breakfast in this hotel because we left early for the airport.

We stayed in Hondarribia mainly because the hotels in San Sebastián are so expensive. We checked online, found this hotel new, roomy, free wifi, pool, and competitive rates so we booked immediately via Expedia. Hotel was very nice to email us thanking for our booking but asked if we were sure to book Jul 2017, and offered to book us... More

No A/C, only informed after check in that this would not be functioning until the next day. Opened window hesitantly because of small child and safety issues, but the noise off the street was loud and stuffiness kept us up all night. Poor service, didn't offer a fan or alternative, no discount. Expensive and poor value, although a great location... More

Dear Natasha110, We apologize for the AC inconvenient we´ve been through an incident but as i asked my colleges at the reception you were asked to move to another room. Anyhow I´m sure next time you visit us you will have a nice AC flow. Best regards, More

Tucked away in a slightly suburb-esque location but right next to the old town. Rooms with a rood terrace are good but the terrace itself was a little scruffy. Big pool and stylish room though. Couldn't figure out air conditioning but only stayed two nights when only 20C.

We stayed for a night at Rio Bidasoa. The room was very nice and spacious with a modern bathroom. The location is perfect just a short walk away from the old town plus the good restaurants and pintxos bars, as well as the seaside from which you see France in the isle across. Don't miss the lift with the observatory... More

I'm coming to this hotel from 1993 and still is the best choice for visiting Guipúzcoa. Quiet, perfect Access by car and free parking. WifiFree and good connection. Walking to the city is nice and short time.

We stayed for 7 nights recently. Firstly, the staff were terribly nice, courteous, and helpful! However, our experience there was not altogether satisfactory. The room: it was not just minimalist, but very basic, and small. The soundproofing between floors and walls was appalling. Everything could be heard! It was so bad that on the third night people arrived in upstairs... More

Dear Mrs. Aubrey We deeply regret that our hotel was not like as we constantly strive to improve. With regard to soundproofing this is a building of 1956 and perhaps at that time the insulation was not his forte, but we conducted two comprehensive reforms since then and we believe the result has been clearly favorable for the hotel, it...
