        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Comfortable hotel in the outskirts of the centre of San Sebastian.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          A nice,clean,modern hotel that fulfilled all our needs for our short stay.

          There were problems gaining entry to the underground carpark..It was full to the public,but the barrier refused to lift for hotel guests.We had to drive between the barrier.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Very quiet despite location next to bus terminal. lovely walk along rive rto old town. 10 min walk to rugby stadium.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The staff were extremely helpful

          It would have been nice to have a covered outside terrace or sheltered roof terrace to relax. Entrance should be at the front on the main road.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The staff are friendly and very helpful. The location is just on the edge of town and is a nice 10min walk to the main area's in San Sebastian. The breakfast is amazing and perfect if you have taken advantage of the many running routes the city has to offer.I have stayed twice and I would go back again!

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Very clean and modern facilities. Excellent breakfast buffet. Convenient parking garage. Nice bar - the bartender made me the best gin and tonic I've ever had!

          Quite a distance from the town center, beaches and shopping. However, very close to taxi stand and buses. Just don't expect to be able to walk anywhere in less than 30 min.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Staff very friendly. Had a great coffee shop where ou could get breakfast nuch cheaper than in hotel. Great piano bar.

          Much too far out of town. It is a 30minute walk to the old town. Has a vey busy noisy bus station right beside the hotel. Has no bars or restuarants near it.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Very nice hotel, good service and clean & nice room. Best breakfast we had during our one week holiday (we stayed in2 hotels in San Sebastián and one in Bilbao, plus two in Paris).

        • Couple
          7.8

          Breakfast buffet is extensive and excellent - we loved the espresso in particular. If you're not planning for the beach, the location is excellent: driving and parking is easy, taxis are parked in front, and a large bus station for public transport is also in front.

          Room was quite small (considering the price). The Wireless Internet connection key worked fine, but you have to renew it every 24 hours by personally getting a new key from the reception desk, which is quite unpractical in the middle of the night.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          comfortable beds, silent room, free wifi connection. good location to the centre with local buses. bus stop is very near.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Everything is good with this hotel, drinks and food are not expensive, very nice tapa bar and piano bar. Although the location is not in the town centre, there are many buses that stop not far from the hotel to go downtown. Highly recommended.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Great hotel, great room. They gave us one of their balcony rooms, and it was wonderful to eat dinner/drink wine out there in the evening. Amazing value for the money (less than 100 euro/night).

          A bit far to walk to city center (old town, beach area)--about a mile and a half. However, there was plenty going on around our hotel: nice restaurants, grocery stores, etc.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Lovely hotel with great location beside bus station if you are travelling from airport or other towns. 20 min walk to centre or frequent buses from outside hotel which cost €1.20 number 26 and 28 to centre

          Nice food in hotel restaurant but portions are very small

        • Single
          7.4

          very good rooms which were soundproofed very well but we had rooms facing the coach station which were still noisy so avoid these rooms. Breakfast was very good and the facilities were very good in this hotel. the price was okay for this location

          the location was a good 20 minute walk from the centre and the hotel is situated in the middle of a roundabout and a coach station. The rooms are soundproofed but if you have rooms on the side of the coach station it will be noisy

        • Single
          8.2

          Location, breakfast, staff. Overall very good.

          The shower does not mantain heat constant.
