My husband and I recently spent a couple of nights here whilst visiting San Sebastián for the first time. The staff could not have been more helpful - they welcomed us and made it clear that they were there for our every need. They recommended places to eat and explained where to go in town. Having access to free bike... More

I asked for hair dryer very late at night and it came in a little cute basket, I know it sounds like nothing but it's the nice touch that makes a hotel special :). Oh one bad... More

A very comfortable hotel with very friendly staff, and the luxury touches justify the premium price. Well located for the old town being 20 minutes walk away. They even provide a list of recommended restaurants and pintxos bars

Lovely property with very helpful and diligent staff. The location is in a very ice neighborhood and an easy walk into the old center. Facilities in the room and the hotel itself are of a good standard too.

We originally booked for one night but decided to stay two. We could easily have spent a week here. It is a 15 min walk into the old town, but you get free bike rental and that was fun!

Hotel was about 1 km from city centre and bikes available. Loved the ambiance and peaceful atmosphere. Bar facilities could have been a little better and a pool would be good but overall very happy. Lovely breakfast and nice gardens.

“i think it'd be more special to be in the main building, although we never saw those rooms. But this isn't a property where you lounge around in the lobby or a pool (there is no pool). You're pretty much either in your room or headed out.”
