Awful. No sound insulation at all, you hear every footstep and whisper from all rooms above, below and to sides. Bed so hard may as well sleep on the floor, get up aching instead of rested. Awful weak shower, water dribbles out and the temperature fluctuates badly between scalding and freezing, trying to adjust the tap makes it worse you... More

We stayed here for two nights. The first night we walked to old town. Way too far. The receptionist said to take bus 16 back. Ha ha . We stood in the rain for 40 minutes and finally took a cab. Bus finally came, driver would not let us on. Just shook his head no. The hotel was very clean.... More

Hotels are expensive in San Sebastian in July and this was at the cheaper end of the decent looking hotels. The reason, I imagine, is that it is a little bit out of the way. Don't make the mistake we made of walking from the bus station in 25 degrees as the uphill walk at the end is quite tough.... More

This place is located out of town on a hill but we enjoyed the walk after our dinner. The bus goes past the hotel if needed. Had a room overlooking the town, room was large and good standard of amenity. Breakfast was good and staff very helpful. Nice beach just down the road. City centre a nice leisurely walk away...

Nice hotel at the top of a hill with good on site parking. Good staff , helpful, knowledgeable and spoke good English. Nice pool for a dip rather than swim.
