Hotel Karlos at Zarautz Hotel with charm, with beautiful room, oceanfront with very nice terrace to watch the surfers.The reception is done in English and French. Free parking. Good restaurant, but expensive!

Stayed for 2 nights while away on business with the supplier booking this little gem of a hotel/restaurant for us. Right on the sea front with stunning views and the chef is a Spanish tv celebrity! Comfortable rooms with very friendly, helpful staff. Hope to stay here again in future but with time to look around the area next time.

We were slightly nervous of our visit...the photos on google maps showed a skate park right in front of the hotel and there is one but if anything it adds to the feel of the place as being 'in the heart of things' especially with the attraction of it's ever-busy bar and terrace. Overall, the location is super with easy...

Before coming to this hotel we didn't know that the owner is a very famous chef in Spain – it didn't make any change for us, but it's niche to now. We reserved the mini-suite, which was great. We had a hug balcony facing the beach, 2 rooms, and a beautiful bath-room - all we needed. The hotel is quit...

Short stop in Zarautz in our way back to Madrid. We trusted the name and the 4 stars. Beach view are exceptional and location of the hotel is prime. But the hotel is not at the level expected. Rooms are basic and smelly including kitschy plastic accessories in the bath room. We were looking forward for breakfast trusting Arguinano brand...

As fans of Karlos Arguinano on tv it was wonderful to visit the hotel. The parking was difficult in a narrow road. Room was very nice with a huge terrace and sea views to die for. Fun watching the surfers but the skate boarders a real nuisance. Unfortunately no extractor fan in bathroom. Dinner basic, disappointing and expensive. We ordered...

We needed a hotel in a hurry, and this place was a great surprise. Great building, location, bar, restaurant, view. We had no idea that Karlos Arguinano is a famous TV chef in Spain, so the food was a great surprise. We were happy with everything in the hotel. The only tricky thing is parking nearby. Would really love to...

We arrived here after a long trip from St Malo in France that morning. Stumbled across it by chance, but what a find. The building is beautiful and the rooms very tastefully decorated in traditional Spanish style. We had a fantastic room overlooking the beach and sea. The place is very quiet, perhaps because it was mid June, but there...
