Saiaz Getaria Hotel
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Getaria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We stayed here 4 nights in June, 2014. Our room had a stunning view of the ocean. Bed was very good, there was no outside noise, considerably noise from adjoining room, breakfast was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was *extremely* helpful and courteous.

For me, the place was excellent with a single drawback, and that is the shower next door woke me up 4 out of 4 mornings. If you are a light sleeper, then be informed. Otherwise, this place was simply beautiful.

I have several tips.

Actually arriving at the hotel can be quite a fire drill. The street (San Roke Kalea) *does* allow vehicle traffic, in spite of looking like a "pedestrian zone." Thus, you can drive right up to the door of the hotel and drop your luggage, then continue to the end of the street, make a U-turn, and drive all the way back out. It is unnecessary to carry your luggage very far.

Parking can be problematic in Getaria. There is a public pay parking lot about a 5 minute walk away. It is 10 Euro per day, but if you are going to be doing multiple in/outs, the cost can get a bit much. We found available on the street parking on Sahatsaga Kalea, just on the south side of the main drag. It is actually closer than the pay lot, and it is free.

I suggest room 31 if available. It is on the top floor, with a spectacular view. Also, the top floor rooms have remotely controlled skylights (which can be opened) in the bathroom. This brilliantly solves the usual steamed-up bathroom after shower problem.

Attractive hotel with most bedrooms having a sea view. Cheerful attentive staff also supported by the owners who are keen to pass on any info.
Would be pleased to come back here and the restaurants by the working harbour are fine. There is a lovely, promenade walk of 5Km to Zerrautz.
Parking availble 600 metres away

At the beginning of May we decided to take a short break in Northern Spain. We decided to visit the small port of Getaria as a quiet spot within easy driving distance of San Sebastian.
The hotel is in a small, beautifully renovated old building, down a narrow lane close to the harbour. The situation is 'elevated' and this might be a little challenging for anyone with mobility problems wanting to explore. It is not possible to park next to the hotel but there is plenty of free parking available next to the bay below the hotel.
We didn't have a sea view room but spent time on the terrace - having an evening drink or a post breakfast coffee overlooking the small bay and watching the surfers. Our room was beautiful with a wealth of original stone features and windows with wooden shutters.
There was plenty of space and the room was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fabulous.
The reception staff were lovely - bright, friendly and clearly available to help if needed.
Other hotel staff we came across were equally pleasant.
This is a small hotel and as such hasn't a restaurant but there are a number available within a 5 to 10minute walk serving a variety of dishes and especially great fresh fish and seafood!

Room Tip: A Sea view room we looked at was lovely but the non sea view rooms are large and full of charm.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in the beginning of May and were very satisfied. The hotel has been nicely renovated to honor the original architecture. The view to the sea is spectacular in some of the rooms while others face the old town. Everyone in the staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel is nicely located in the old town with an amazing number of good seafood restaurants around the corner.

We stayed here on 3/4/14 for one night in room 36, which has a wonderful sea view and king size bed and sofa. As we were away for my 50th birthday it was a great start.
We liked it so much we changed our route to Bilbao and came back after going to San Sebastian, Aragon and La Rioja! The lady on the desk was so helpful / friendly and we got Room 36 again!
The lady when we checked out gave us some tips on the coast road and was also jovial and helpful.
We will be back! :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view - it's fabulous.

Went to the Basque area to walk a little on the road to Santiago de Compostela. Jumped of a bus from Bilbao, just got a feeling for it. Walked down one of the few alleya in Getaria. And there it was, this amazing hotel which wa absolutely drop dead gorgeous. The hotel in my dreams. The first impression, the entrance, amazing. Everything fell out to my utmost expectations!

This little hotel perched on a rocky buttress in the small town of Getaria and overlooking the sea is stunning. Great value for money and wonderful sea views. Spotless and with some of the most pleasant and helpful staff I have encountered on my travels in Europe. Great location for local restaurants, free parking in tourist only car park below hotel and you need to try the local fish and Txakolina wine. Brilliant!!

Room Tip: Sea view room is a must. I think others look out onto a quiet narrow street but cannot be sure.
