Good, modern hotel, with clean and functional rooms. Location is a bit away from the center (25min walking distance), but the hotel was worth the walk.

The hotel was clean and I had free WiFi but the slamming doors all night made sleep almost impossible. I didn't mind the walk into San Sebastian and the staff was very helpful but I couldn't sleep. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. Also, the room was very hot and the air conditioning was turned off for the season. I couldn't open the door to the balcony because it smelled like a sewer outside.

I stayed here on a business trip in July and my room was great, lots of space and extra seats and balcony. The bed was very comfortable and big and I also had a safe in the room which was very useful. The room was very clean and the hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. I had the breakfast twice and was really happy with the quality and quantity of food available including fresh fruit, croissants and other pastries as well as all the other continental meats and eggs.
The only small thing that was annoying was the aircon in the room didn't seem to get lower, however long I left it on a low temperature. Could have done with a boost, although I didn't think it was important enough to mention to the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, was really nice to sit out and have a drink in the afternoon.

Staff were very attentive and friendly. Free wifi in the entire hotel, and this worked very well. The hotel is quite removed from the city center where all the action happens, so be prepared. Walking back is an uphill struggle. The neighborhood is tranquil and, if you have a vehicle, makes for an ideal place of rest after a hectic day or night of eating in the casco viejo. Parking is a reasonable 15€/24 hours. If you want some beach action this is not too far, although you will still have to walk back up the considerable hill to the hotel.

We stayed there as a family with two kids.The first thing I like with the hotel is the neighbourhood it is situated.It is silent and decent and five minutes walk to seaside.The decoration of the room and the hotel in general is very modern and stylish.We enjoyed the bath very much.Especially kids had fun in the big shower.Spa is minor but good looking.As we did not want to go out for dinner with two kids, we had our dinners at the restaurant where we had superb meal.Special congratulations to the chef:)The staff is friendly and they speak English.The breakfast area near swimming pool is fine and the buffet is good.The swimming pool looked great but we preffered to take a walk to seaside.We also enjoyed to walk to the old town from the hotel.Although it was half an hour walk, the seaside landscape was beautiful and also the there were nice terrace cafes where you could have short breaks on the road.

when we checked in i was surprised as the guy at reception is english guy lol
room is good,and have balcony with 2 cute chair hehe
and the spa also nice with water massage bed.
about 15mins walk to beach
and evening we heard some moaning from some neighbor lol

parking charged a bit too much for 70EUR per day but if u just park beside it will be much cheaper,as lots people parked at hotel parking why they dont just ask?maybe stupid i guess

Clean and good modern hotel, big pool, big bed, great shower,modern decoration: we felt at home. Also the reception was very helpfull and friendly(and spoke really good english). We also had lunch at the terrace once which was ok. Just be aware of the walk of 25 minutes to the old part of the city.
