“great location & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We were trying to find a different hotel late in the evening and going in circles because they had blocked off the road when we saw this hotel. They offered us a v good deal & helped us with parking, gave us advice on food etc. The lady at reception was excellent - couldn't do enough to help us; great service at a time when we were tired & fraught. The rooms were ok, clean & comfortable & value for the deal we negotiated. Location was excellent, right at the heart of everything.

We decided at short notice to stop over in San Sebastián on our way back home. Based on the reviews on trip advisor and the price we opted for Parma Hotel. The email contact was great and quick. We arrived 2 hours early but we could check in straight away. Parking was a very short drive away in a secure underground car park and easily located. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. The lady on reception could not have been more helpful. She recommended a couple of bars to visit for pintxos and we were not disappointed. She also gave us a map and highlighted the main places to see & visit. The old town is literally a few minutes walk away. Based on our experience and the reception staff we will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Very enjoyable stay if only for 1 night!

Great location for visiting San Sebastián.. Right across the water so good to ask for water view. Room was adequate for 2 people & clean. Good breakfast buffet, 10 euros. 10 % resort tax on room,food, & parking! Receptionist , Eider, was most helpful & friendly, as well as Cristina & manager.

As mentioned in many reviews it's perfectly located. You can walk to just about everywhere and the old town and beach is just next door. Despite this, the location itself is pretty quiet. We came by car which can be parked in a nearby underground parking. I found the hotel to be easily accessed when you come into the city from the highway. The rooms are basic but fine, very clean and you have wifi. Decided to stay a second night.

Top marks to the staff and the level of service they provide, absolutely excellent. All very friendly and extremely helpful. Special mention to the receptionist that left us a surprise the last night we came in ( room 5 ), just amazing, thank you so much!

This hotel is in a fantastic location if you want to be close to the old town, the beaches and all the tapas bars and restaurants. Staff are really friendly, good buffet breakfast and they arrange secure underground parking in nearby parking if you come by car.
We had a seafront room,only downside is that room fairly small but very comfortable bed.
Second time we have stayed here and we will definitely be back. Also a favourite of some friends of ours.

We spent 4 nights in the hotel.The location was great in the edge on old town but still on a quiet street. Staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet was ok, worth its price. Would stay in the hotel again!

This hotel is in an excellent location and reasonably priced. Our room had a fabulous view of the sea but the furnishings were very basic. Hotel staff was extremely helpful in giving directions to parking facility and marking maps with other locations.
