My family and I stayed here in early July (3 rooms) for 3 nights. The hotel was perfect for our needs--yes, it is not right in town, but that was a good thing because the week we were there the city was very crowded with a lot of young people (which was fine unless you were staying on one of the noisy streets in the old city).
Beds were comfortable, rooms were a nice size and the shower was amazing! Rain showerhead and good water pressure. Bathroom as well as the bedroom were spotless. Air conditioner was not as cool as we are used to but luckily the weather was not terribly hot when we were there.
We were able to take advantage of the pool one afternoon, and it was a great break from sightseeing. Enjoyed delicious mojitos on our loungers and just relaxed for a few hours. We were there during the World Cup and joined a lot of other Americans (including a few youth soccer teams from the U.S. who were there for a local soccer tournament) in the lobby bar to watch the game one evening--that was fun despite the cable going out several times during the game!
Our breakfast was included in our room rate and we were very happy with the variety of food available and thought it was a good value--freshly made omelettes and eggs, cheeses and ham platters, lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastries and breads. Of course, if not included in your room rate, you would save by just stopping at a local cafe for a coffee and croissant.
We walked to the old city several times along the water and on the beach, and it was a lovely walk--not that far at all.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone spending a few days in San Sebastian. Comparable to a Holiday Inn or Hilton Garden Inn in the US.
