Stayed just the one night in April. The room was very comfortable, a decent size, quiet at night and great staff.
Location is great for the beach, but you will need a taxi or bus for the old town, which is a must see.
Biggest problem would be parking if you arrive by car. There isn't any. In April we could park in the street (safe) fairly easily, but in the height of summer, this could be a real issue.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room for a better view

Had a one night stay in early April at this great hotel. I would highly recommend it. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the location just good for the beach. It's a 30 minute walk to the old town, the centre of fun and frolics. There's a bus stop outside and a taxi is about 10 euro so it's out of centre location is not a problem. The city is just great and the old town wonderful. Parking is not great but nearby streets are safe enough. Good nights sleep and the hotel can not be held responsible for my banging hangover. Dam you Rjoca !!

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. We had a sea view room on the 7th floor. It had a large balcony with wonderful views of the beach and island. The room and ensuite were very clean. The beach is a two minute walk away with a lovely walk along the promenade to the Old Town and City shops.
There is a bus stop outside which has an excellent service. The fare to the Old Town and City centre is 1.4 euros.
I cannot fault this hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.

Stayed in December for two nights with our son. Great room at the end of the hall with nice view to the water. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. Staff was very helpful, and explained how we could park our car nearby on a quiet street for 3.50 euros/day. Walked to the beach and took the bus right outside to Old Town.

Enjoyed the buffet breakfast, but it's served in a windowless room in the basement. Staff talking in the kitchen first morning (not working), but gentleman on second morning could not have been friendlier or more helpful.

Liked the location and found a great Sidra restaurant around the corner.

Room Tip: Room with a view of water, or top floor with balcony

Very reasonable hotel in an expensive resort. Good value for money. Helpful staff. The room was clean and bright. The hotel is in a residential area, just a short walk to the nearest beach. There is a bus stop outside the door with frequent buses to center of town ten minutes away. This is a good place to stay and San Sebastian is a lovely city.

Staff at the hotel were very helpful, from the reception staff to the cleaners! The rooms were clean and the size was ok. For our budget we feel we got a decent hotel in a pricey San Sebastián. We didn't eat in the hotel but had a few drinks in the bar one afternoon which were very reasonably priced. The hotel is outside of the town centre but took us about 30 minutes to walk to Boulevard and the old town. There is a very frequent bus service to the old town and back and there is a bus stop outside the hotel. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach.

Opted for the superior rooms with balcony on the top floor with views to the Bahia de La Concha and even used the loungers [in October!] Room size OK and nice bathroom, all spotlessly clean. Buffet breakfasts OK but not special. Ground floor bar/cafe popular with locals. Located in a mainly residential area: bars, cafes, shops and supermarkets — but just a short walk to the nearest beach or frequent buses to centre of town right outside. Friendly staff helped with directions and advice. Good base if you want to mix with local residents.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor rooms with balcony.
