I stayed at Leku Eder in August during "great week" with my mom and sister. I contacted them a few times with questions before booking and they responded right away every time. They are very accommodating and sincerely want their guests to enjoy a good stay at the hotel.

We had a clean room with a large patio and view of the ocean for a very small price. Every morning we were awaken by the sound of roosters and birds as the sun came up and then enjoyed a nice big breakfast in a community room with a view. Although a bit far from the center of town, it was so relaxing and serene up on the mountain and nice to get away sometimes from the chaos of San Sebastian during the summer festivities.

A bus drops off and picks up right outside of the hotel. Tickets cost 1,80 euro per person and they come every half hour. Cabs are not too expensive, but it seems most people choose to use the public buses since they are very convenient.

There is a good restaurant, Buena Vista, about 10 minutes up the hill walking. It's a nice walk with ocean views all the way there and ocean views at the restaurant as well. The food is authentic Basque and the pintxos are good and cheap. (I wish there was someplace to get food closer by or at least a vending machine in the hotel, but this isn't a big enough problem to take a star off from my review). We ate at the restaurant twice and went there for drinks and snacks one night as well.

I will return to this hotel as soon as I get another opportunity to. It was all that I wanted and more. Thank you, everyone at Leku Eder, for making my experience in San Sebastian unforgettable!

We booked a night at the Hotel Leku Eder after reading positive reviews from other travellers. The cost was 105 euros a night which was the average price of hotels in the area, if not a little high for a 2 star hotel oustide the centre of San Sebastian.

The hotel policy is that you can check in from 12 noon which is one of the things that appealed to us about the hotel in the first place as we wanted to get there at 12 noon, unpack a few things and get the bus into town.

We arrived shortly before 12 noon and the receptionist was busy checking in a family, so we sat waiting patiently for our turn. When she had finished checking in the family and had given them their hotel key etc she took our details... The receptionist appeared very friendly and helpful she even spoke English to explain some of the places to visit during our stay. She then asked us if we wanted a twin or double room... to which we replied a double if possible please. We asked if it was possible to have a room with a view as we had noticed some of the rooms were in a more privileged position, that is, terrace with view over the cliffs.. She informed us that these were all full.

The receptionist then showed us the breakfast area and invited us to have some coffee and croissant to which we replied, yes thanks, but we would like to put our things in our room first.
She then informed us our room wasnt ready but was being cleaned at that moment so we wouldnt have to wait long... The ´breakfast´she offered us was warm slices of cheese that were not covered up and some ham... both had been sitting on a plate in the breakfast room uncovered since breakfast... 8 am...

After an hour had passed ... it was after 1pm and we were getting anxious... the hotel policy stated 12 noon check in and we couldnt understand why it was taking so long to clean the room...There were 2 of them cleaning the room... the receptionist went to help them too... At 1.15 she told us it would be 5 minutes... We wanted to get the 1.25 bus into the centre and still the room wasnt ready... At 1.20pm the receptionist said another room was ready but a twin and did we want to put our things in there until ours was ready... At this point we were really unhappy... maybe she could have offered us this at 12 noon when we first checked in... but we had already been waiting over 1 hour and 25 mins so we said NO we would wait 5 minutes more.

We are both in our mid thirties/early forties and have never had this experience before. If the hotels policy is you can check in at 12 noon then you should be able to check in at 12 noon. The hotels policy on vacating the room is 12 noon... so how can they guarantee a 12 noon check in for every room...

Our room was one of the back rooms... with no view or terrace. We would have both gladly paid more for a room with a view/terrace as obviously the experience of the hotel would have been different for us... especially given the wonderful location of the hotel.

Breakfast was very basic... coffee, tea, hot milk, warm sliced cheese and ham (uncovered). There was a sweet croisant on each table side plate (uncovered). Slightly off putting in summer when you can see flies landing on the food...

The view from the hotel ( from the breakfast room ) was lovely and if you are lucky enough to get a room with a terrace/view then your experience may just be different to ours... if you didn´t have to wait over an hour and a half to check in.

The staff at the hotel were helpful and friendly during our stay. They gave us a map of San Sebastian and recommended a few places.

Location is lovely but a bit far out of town if you want to walk. Buses are regular, about every 20 minutes until 11.30pm costing 1.60 each way. Taxis are about 9 - 10 euros.
Parking is free so you have no hassle trying to find somewhere to park but if you weigh up the costs of public transport, that is, buses, taxes etc and the cost of the hotel itself it can work out to be very expensive.

Would we book this hotel again... NO
Would we recommend this hotel to anyone... NO

Our overall experience felt like one of a hostal and at 105 euros a night, an expensive one at that.

Room Tip: If you decide to book at this hotel... Check the availability of a room with a view/terrace as there is no difference in price and given the location of the property will make a difference to your overall experience especially if you are staying for more than 1 night. Otherwise we would recommend staying somewhere else... or booking dates when there is availabilty.

Let me add my voice to those who commend this fine hotel. We spent 3 nights there in July and found it to be brilliant. I concur with all the positive comments previously made. We also found the bus service to be reliable and cheap; ask the receptionist to print off a timetable. You don't need to have exact change for the bus driver and you pay as you go - €1.60 per journey.

Room Tip: Request a sea view

Leku Eder is a really nice hotel just nearby Donostia city center. Rooms are cozy and staff was more than helpful - they helped us with everything. The best reason to choose this hotel is its location - up in the mountains with great scenery. When arriving, you can take the bus 16 to the hotel from the city, trip takes 20-30 minutes. When staying at the hotel, you can take a short and pleasant hike from the hotel to the city using Camino de Santiago -route nearby. Breakfast was simple but good and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view. Air is more humid downstairs, so you might enjoy upstair rooms more.

High on a hill overlooking the bay this hotel needs a car or public transport into and out of town.
The hotel itself is perfect for a short stay. Nice, clean, traditional rooms and a great breakfast room with panoramic views.
Friendly staff on reception and a very pleasant stay.
