“wonderful place!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

very nice hotel! all rooms were clean, tidy, nice views from some of them, helpful staff and best location you can get in this city. some people were complaining here about not having elevator - the hotel is basically 1 level: all the rooms are on the 2d floor which is maybe 20-30 steps - not a big deal to us and I'm sure for someone who needs help the staff will always be there. stay here and you wont be disappointed :)

We arrived to San Sebastian with a pension already booked, but it turned out that this pension lied to us and the rooms they promised us had nothing to do with what we got - horrible place in many ways (please don't book your stay in pension Amaiur). so after we had to wait till 3 pm cos of not professional staff in previous pension, we could only start our new search late afternoon. Lucky we came across this beautiful hotel, wehrre they had 2 rooms that were just what we needed. The girl - Eider (if I spell her name correctly) was super friendly and helped us offering good price and holding the rooms for us until we could bring our bags. Both rooms we got were in very good condition - one was just renovated and another one was a bit more simple, but same clean, big enough and light. The Internet worked everywhere in the hotel, which was very important for my husband. The staff was very friendly and helped us explaining everything about the city. Also its location is perfect- 2 mins walking both to the pinchos streets and to the beach Zuriola. So overall we were very happy with this hotel: nice, clean, great location, friendly staff that speak good English, Internet everywhere... much better quality for a bit more money than the pension that we booked originally. highly recommended to everyone!

Honestly you couldn't ask for more for 102 euros. The walk in rate is cheaper than the Internet.
It's in a fantastic location. If we come back again we would stay here for sure. 5 min walk to Zurriola beach, 3 mins walk to where the main bars and pintxos is. It's quiet at night so you can sleep. Staff are helpful. Everything is clean and fresh. Honestly you couldn't ask for more at this price. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stay in this location and walk a few mins to where all the noise and bars are.

Dear Sir:

We really appreciate your nice opinion of the Hotel, and you have to be happy because you got a very nice offer for this time of the year. Normally the prices in internet are the best, and you get the best offers there, but some times can happen that the price you get at recepetion desk could improve the internet offer. This is an exception.
Many thanks again and best regards.

. An elevator would make it great . Internet was not reliable. Great location. Parking is a big issue in that area. They have spots a few blocks away in a public lot . Can be noisy at night. Our room was waterfront view which was excellent I would stay again

Hotel Parma is in the very good location. Just behind the hotel are the eating paradise.
Tons of pintxos are in the old town. 5 min. from the hotel and you are in the heaven.
Hotel staff are very helpful and nice. Room are small but clean. Breakfast could be better.
Anyway I go again to Parma. No elevator.

My wife and I found the hotel very suitable. Clean, slightly on the drab side but worthwhile. The English speaking staff were helpful. Perhaps the biggest surprise was that there was no elevator. Fortunately we had to lug our heavy suitcases up only to the second floor, which may not be suitable for those who are elderly. Perhaps the staff would step in in such a case. We are not sure if the hotel continues up to the 3rd and 4th floor but assume that it does. We were fortunate to have a room overlooking the sea wall.

Room Tip: Request sea wall side of the hotel. We didn't find it noisy. By the way, I accidentally hit the...

Paid €80 for a twin room and parking was €14. Good clean rooms, reasonably sized. Friendly helpful reception staff. Everything in the room worked as it should and the beds were comfortable. 5* location, directly in the centre of old town spittinf distance everything u would need. Underground parking 5min walk away which was a but of a pain but there is a space u can pull into directly outside the hotel for loading/unloading of bags so it was ok. Would stay here again if visiting again.
