    Great location 15 mins walk to old town, food very good value friendly staff and free wifi

    Very good

    Very friendly / helpful staff. Good piano bar and cafe which also catered for travellers using the nearby bus station so always had a lively buzz whilst maintaining quality of service. Extremely comfortable beds and good soundproofing in the rooms.

    The location, although for some people this might not be an issue, as a slowish walker it took 20 minutes to get into the old town, however the bus service is excellent.

    Superb

    Great location. Pleasant walk to city centre and old town. Staff friendly and helpful. Bus and taxis outside hotel. Room small but modern and very comfortable. Good coffee facilities on each floor of hotel. Felt buffet breakfast was a bit on the expensive side at €30.00 per couple, however breakfast could also be purchased in restaurant downstairs. Overall the Silken Amara Plaza is in a great area and offers good facilities ar a very affordable price.

    Temperature of shower was inconsistent. One minute roasting hot the next freezing cold.

    Fabulous

    Centrally located. A walking distance from city center and shopping area. Large and well designed rooms. Very modern and welcoming. You don't need to bring allong soap, shampoo, razor, comb, teeth brush, as you get it all at the hotel. Hotel has its own parking lot, which is very convenient, although you have to pay daily. Hotel has a cafeteria and you can either dine for full price or have a coffee and a pastry for low cost. The staff was very friendly, cooperative and helpful, and ancsious to help with any occured subject.

    In triple rooms there is a sofa opened to a bed and the matrass was not good.

    The balcony we asked for was spacious and had a lovely view.The food we had in the restaurant was very fine cuisine and great quality.There was life in the bar of an evening which we liked, with locals calling in to watch the football and/or to have a drink and socialise with their friends.The staff were extremely helpful and very professional;we loved to watch the expertise and efficiency of the barman in particular.The bus stop and taxi rank were very close by, making it very easy to go from place to place.

    The only thing that comes to mind is that there were no tea or coffee making facilities

    location was just too far to walk to the old city

    Exclusive

    Very nice place, and a good value by San Sebastian standards. Hotel was nice, with plenty of small extras. Staff was very helpful. Location is literally next door to San Sebastian's "bus station" (just a few bus bays), which couldn't be more perfect if you're visiting Madrid or Bilbao in the same trip. It's a couple of minutes from the Amara Viejo neighborhood, where you can find low-key and family-friendly cafes. It's about a 20 min walk to the old town and beachfront, but this is entirely a pleasant stroll along the town's well-manicured and tree-shaded riverfront, which the hotel faces.

    Guest rating

    We liked the percieved quality of the facilities, later to find out it wasn't near what we expected and the service was horrible.

    Non smoking rooms would still smell like smoke and come through bathroom vents. Hotel staff was not understanding, very rude and ignorant. Also, the staff at the front didn't explain anything when we showed up and were quick to get frustrated and rude when my wife and I asked questions. Really it was just a bad experience. Its a shame because that place has great potential.

    Exclusive

    Great location for easy access to the centre plus the staff were extremely helpful and polite.

    We chose a room for 3, the 3rd bed being a pull out camp bed. The bed was manageable in terms of comfort but we could have done with more sheets on it as it was a cold evening.

    Superb

    Great welcome, car park across the road and you can pay at the hotel cost of 16euro per night, it also has a lift from car park to hotel. Breakfast buffet good value and caters for all tastes. Beds very comfy along with pillows, mini bar good value and everything you would need if you turned up without an overnight bag ie. Toothbrush shaving kit etc

    No tea or coffee making facilities in room

    We were very pleased about everything. The hotel staff was very helpful in the reception. We loved the parking possibility and found that all in all this was a very good deal. We had a package which included a visit to an excellent spa, very nicely located on the la Concha Beach. Great place
