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.
