Recently spent two nights. Arrived by car and was immediately helped, they opened my wife’s side and escorted her to the front of the hotel (comes with in/out privileges). Quick and efficient!
During check-in they needed a few minutes, so they escorted us to the bar for free drinks. Great service in the bar, they came to the table and poured us HUGE drinks. Room was ready so we left after finishing our drinks. Bags were in our room. The room was huge and the bathroom was as big as some hotel rooms I have stayed at! Flat screen TV, room was in great condition…All the toiletries were “luxury brand”. Inside the room… a cider and some sweets that we killed. One thing to note…to turn on any lights you must insert your card near the door and leave it until you leave. Situated ourselves, got a map from the front desk and left for the beaches (a few blocks away). The “pintxos” or “pinchos” bars are two blocks away and there are too many to choose from, so go to all of them! Everyone was friendly at the hotel and bar…always asking how we were doing, etc.
CONSTRUCTION IS GOING ON…but we never heard a peep.
There are only two computers in the lobby for customer use and they were always busy. I posted the entire instant awards menu in that particular thread, but they had an semi-extensive list.
Concierge made dinner reservations for us and had directions to the restaurants waiting for us. Great service and I recommend using them pre-arrival and during your stay. We had some amazing meals but some of the more famous restaurants are closed Sunday, Monday, and Tuesdays!!
Were going back to San Sebastian and staying here! Great hotel!
