World class hotel, among the best we have been to. Highly impressive, yet not stuffy. Excellent service. Very attentive concierge who introduced us to some superb less well known restaurants. Ample breakfast in impressive setting. Slight negative: some of the first floor river view rooms allow smoking (we were upgraded to one without warning which had a strong impregnated smell, but were given the immediate option of moving or changing bed-linen and ventilating). There is a bit of traffic noise at the front so higher floors might be preferable. Within 5 minutes of La Concha beach, and even closer to the bars and tapas of Parte Vieja. Quality was excellent, and pricing reasonable. We looked at Londres Hotel when there and while also impressive, it falls a long way short. Top notch.
