This is a beautiful hotel w/ tremendous service. We arrived in town very late, with no reservation, after going to a soccer match in San Sebastian. We pulled up to the hotel and were immediately greeted by an attendant who grabbed our bags out of our trunk and brought them to us inside, and grabbed the rental car keys and... More

I have stayed here a number of times and it has always been very good. if I had a criticism or two it would be the paper products such as toilet paper are not up to a 5* standard. Plus the parking charges are excessive @ Euros 24;00 per night. it is ideally situated for all the main sights especially... More

The underground car park is really inconvenient, only for small cars and good drivers. Otherwise the hotel is nice and friendly, with great views over the river. Spacious rooms, good bathrooms. Great service.

It was raining ;) Offered an upgrade room on sixth floor close to Gym, sauna and pool. Gotcha! Took up on offer,... More

Great relatively new hotel. It is very close to the museums and walking distance to the city center. The staff was very helpful. This no one is going to believe but it did happen. I asked the concierge about the local wines and he said there were two different ones which were outstanding. He could tell my Spanish was none... More

We spent a long weekend in this hotel and have no regrets! We "invested" in a Superior room, and we received a room on the 6th floor where the swimming pool is - check it out, worth it in winter too (it's heated). We had some room service and a drink in the lounge on the ground floor. All fine,... More

I booked a premium room. Even though the hotel looks very new the room wasn’t. The carpet and the furniture looked shabby a needed a refurbishment. The bath is elegant and offers a separate shower and bathtub. I got a very nice balcony with full privacy and a wonderful view on the park and the city. The indoor parking was... More

I was offered an upgrade for a more comfortable stay. I got a jacuzzi, fridge, coffee, nice sitting area, very large bathroom and desk. It was what I am accustomed to in the USA. Breakfast is fantastic in the morning and room service runs virtually nonstop.

We were given a room on the 5th floor but unfortunately it was directly beneath the gym so if someone was using the treadmill you could hear them a little. However Melia reception did accommodate us with a change in room to a quieter room. Note for all those light sleepers like me the quieter rooms are on the side... More
