“Holiday stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We really liked this hotel. Our room was big almost apartment like and accommodated our family of 5 well. It's in a great location 5 mins from the beach which is important as my son and I are keen surfers. The people on the front desk were really helpful and spoke good English. A few small things however: no kettle (must be a Spanish thing as none of the hotels/apartments we have stayed in over our 2 week Spanish holiday had kettles) and the tv did not work initially - but this was fixed as soon as we asked. Breakfast was included and was just ok. Another great thing was that the room had a washing machine. We used it everyday! Good hotel I give it a 4 out of 5.

This is a nice modern hotel in a fantastic location. Very good value for where it is. Room was small but clean modern, air-conditioned and very comfortable. Staff very helpful. I would really recommend it.

Reception very helpful, will give you as much information as you want/need, rooms are spotless, no frills, maid service each day, breakfast ok for a continental breakfast. Bathroom is modern, includes towels and shower gel and handsoap. Old town is a 5 minute walk, nearest beach is 4 minutes (longer beach is further), train station 15 min walk along the river - easy to get to, bus station 22 minute walk along river. If you want small hotel and good location this is for you. If you want any extras it's not.

A convenient location and a simple hotel.
Not high on facilities or luxuries in the room but clean, tidy and sufficient.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful when needed - spoke excellent English.
Self service breakfast was again simple but adequate.

Room Tip: I had an inside room - with a lot of foot traffic on metal stairs from the next door building ( I th...

We traveled for over two weeks in Spain and this was our biggest disappointment. The location is fine because it is near the Oldtown San Sebastian. Parking was not too difficult because we parked in the municipal parking garage essentially across the street. However the value of this hotel was just not there. It was overpriced. Our room was noisy And very small. It was a basic room and nothing more. The bed lamp broken. No soap in the bathroom. I would not recommend this hotel. I do not believe that we got a fair value for our money.

This is an expensive town! Stumbled (literally) across this hotel after attempting several others that were completely full.

Very nice front desk folks. Basic room, no amenities. Construction right outside our window. Good location, fine for a night. Charged us 100 euro for a double early September.

Stayed for 2 nights on business.
Good location. 10 minute walk to main old town with its tapas!; close to the surfing beach. On a main road and above a bar but no noise inside, with windows closed.
Reception is simple: all the reception staff were friendly, spoke English, most spoke French as well. Very helpful.
12 rooms on the first floor. Lift.
Room was simple. Clean, new, small.. two single beds and a bench table. Bright. Apple, kiwi and small bottle water as complementary. Bed was comfortable; new mattress on the firm side. No minibar or fridge. Bathroom was compact but as long as only one person it it at a time then OK!. One shampoo, one gel, one small soap. Towels rather thin.
Nice touch was a yoghurt and fruit instead of the end of day small chocolate.
Wi-fi was both free and fast.
Breakfast in the basement room was very limited and simple. Toaster for standard sliced loaf; one salami, one cheese. Sticky croissant. Coffee machine. limited selection yoghurt. Tinned and fresh fruit. Fresh juice. Best was a very good tortilla espanol.
Overall a clean simple friendly hotel.. but as other reviewers have said expensive by European standards for a one star hotel. However recent report has put Donostia San Sebastian hotels as the third most expensive cty in Spain after Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.

Room Tip: Rooms on on the first floor with a lift. Some are interior so may be quieter when the windows are op...
