Noisy! That's what we remember from Barceló best. Wind zooming in the bathroom. Plus an immense lot of noises from (noisy, american) guests. We could follow their conversation, that's how bad the acoustic in this hotel is.

Breakfast was OK, but nothing special, the minimum. Room: spacious, light and modern. But very white. The minibar is expensive. Location; a bit remote. Good fitness room and internet.

This hotel is very environmental NON-friendly. They have a sign in the bathroom which states 'You should preserve the environment by reusing towels'. Well ... I gladly reuse my towels! But what does Barceló do? They just ignore your wish and bring new towels anyway.
I complaint about this the next day, but that didn't help; more new towels the following day.

I would recommend you to choose a different hotel in San Sebastian, if you have the chance.

Very nice hotel, rooms quite large, pretty and modern, free internet in the room but it only works sporadically. There is a charge for the parking lot but after the first night we started parking on the street which was quite nearby. The hotel is in a residential neighborhood so there is nothing right nearby. You can walk to a few restaurants and the beach is 10 minutes. They have 2 decent restaurants and prices are OK. The spa is OK - we had massages but the therapists have a very light touch – I don’t know if that is a Spain thing. My husband said it felt like he was being pet :) We did their water treatment thing which was interesting enough but I wouldn’t pay extra for it. If I were here again I would try to stay somewhere in a better location within San Sebastian.

I stayed one night on a business trip. The room was modern, well-decorated and with an excellent distribution with all the facilities I needed, including free wifi. A warm, relaxing atmosphere in which you can feel comfortable, work and get a good night's sleep. On the negative side, not enough staff at reception causing a hold-up and a good 25 minute walk to the centre of San Sebastian. You could hear the rooms next door too much. A general conclusion - very recommendable and good value for money.

The hotel is very nice and modern, situated a bit far away from San Sebastian's historic center. We stayed for two nights (had to rebook due to bad weather), the room was big and clean, there also was a nice pool. You can reach the beach after a 5 minute walk, the neighbourhood is residential and quiet. Taxi into the historical part of town cost about 7 euro so it is no big deal. Hotels in San Sebastian are generally expensive, this one gives you great value for money only the location migh be bothering. There was free WIFI which should be a standard to all hotels.

Next time I visit San Sebastian I would prefer to stay closer to the surfer beach.

my wife, my 3 year old son and I stayed at this hotel for 2 awful nights. had we been staying longer i would have looked for an alternative but as we had only 2 days in san sebastian I didn't want to ruin the vacation by moving around. we payed 250 euros a night to stay in what looks like a hospital room. on arrival we were treated like an inconvenience, and at no point did we hear the ususal "Welcome" or "enjoy your stay".
On our 2nd night my wife and I were due to go out for dinner. i rang the hotel reception to ask if i could borrow an iron and ironing board only to be told that the hotel doesn't have either. when i questioned this i was told that hotel offered a better service in that they had a pressing service, "great" i said, "can you have my shirt ironed, please?" "No sir, the servive is now closed!"
I would definitely recommend to stay away from this hotel.

Although a little walk from the beach this was a very good stay. Parked the car overnight outside in spacious car park. Reception formalities were quick & efficient. The room was on 6th floor and was really comfortable. Wall mounted TV and a desk near the window. Comfortable bed with good pillows. Wi-Fi available in bedroom and the connection was perfect. The bathroom was especially welcome with a wetroom with a tremendous shower and unbeatable water pressure. Would have wished to have had time to try out the in-house spa that seemed to have very reasonable costs.
