I stayed with my partner for a week after San Fermín, in July 2012. The hotel is 20-30 minutes from the old town, in the Yamaguchi Park area, so the location is OK, and line 4 stops near the hotel. It seemed to be a hotel area, as there're other (and better!!!) hotels in the same area. Traffic noise can be a problem at night if your room doesn't look out into the park (less traffic there).
They've got 2 kinds of double rooms, if you get 2 single beds they're big and there's a bathtube in the bathroom. If you get 1 bed, it isn't too big and there's a shower only in the bathroom, a shower where the water splashes everywhere so you flood the bathroom even if you try to be extra careful.
Rooms have wi-fi connection (although we didn't try it), there're 2 computers in the foyer but it seemed you had to pay to get online.
The furniture, doorframes etc were broken, rotten in one room but better in the other. We had to change rooms as the first time that we used the A/C it started dripping and when we realised, the desk (where the TV was) was all wet, there could've been a shortcut.
The buffet-breakfast is good: they offer bread rolls, slices of bread that you can toast, biscuits, pastries, cereal, plums, currants, fresh fruit, yoghourt, cold meat, cheese, jam, butter... Milk, coffee, different kinds of tea bags, assorted juices etc. The lady in the restaurant is nice, but the toaster broke down and no-one came to fix it for days (in fact when we left it hadn't been fixed yet).
They're very strict about check-out. We had to travel at 4 pm but there was no way to cajole them into letting us stay after 12 pm, they told us we'd have to pay half the hotel fare!
