We had 3 rooms but I only stayed one night for a visit to a top Donostia restaurant so we didn't even take breakfast in the hotel. That said, my wife did get coffee and a small birthday cheesecake as a late breakfast and that reflects the subtle attention to detail we received. I arranged the arrival of friends as a surprise for my wife and the hotel played its part in keeping it all under wraps until the last minute. After dinner (see other reviews...), we returned around midnight and were able to have a birthday digestif in the bar although the only guests around at that time.
The hotel is a quiet hotel, a slightly long walk into the town (depending on your age...), say 20 minutes to the old town? There is a main building (with lift) and a rear modern annexe. No porter but there are lifts. And parking outside or underground.
Overall, I'd recommend it although 309 euros for the night is a little steep. We have stayed in the Maria Cristina (no. 1 in Donostia) which is far more central and, although excellent for service et al, is less personal or intimate. It's comparing apples and pears but I can see both being worthy of their high rating and the choice depends on your own preference - grand 5-star vs intimate 4-star. We have enjoyed both.
