“Good option if you like an outdoor pool”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The hotel is a little lacking in character and a good 30 minute walk to the old town. That said it is handy for Miramar Palace & Gardens and a 10 min walk to Ondarreta Beach. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The beds are a good size, the showers good but not much storage space. There is a No.16 bus that stops opposite the hotel and will take you close to the old town. Don't expect much by way of views from your room!

Choose this because it had a pool which were really happy with but it's a bit of a trek to the main town (shops + bars etc). You are 5 mins walk to one end of la concha beach, it will take you about 30 mins to walk from one end to the other. Note the other end has the port, shops, bars etc. The main hotel was really nice and if you have a car or don't mind paying for taxi's then this is definitely the hotel because it has the pool that most hotels in donostia don't have.

The rooms are small, but the furniture chosen makes use of the space so you feel as though you have a lot of room. It was clean and comfortable. Fresh eggs can be ordered at breakfast, but the coffee was not very good. The hotel is out of the way, but we walked into town and enjoyed walkibng along the promenade of a weekend and seeing what the locals were up to. You can also catch a bus quite easily if you are not up to the walk,

Good modern hotel situated at far end of San Sebastian.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Restaurant is priced as high end but food far from satisfactory. Monk fish had to be returned as too tough to eat.

Nice Hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. Service was good but you did have to have some patients with the bar staff. They could only service one customer at a time.
The downstairs area is a little clinical and lacks atmosphere but the rooms were excellent although the integrated shower / wardrobe arrangement was a little off putting.
Bed was excellent, but storage was at a premium which meant we couldn't unpacked properly for a 12 day stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you get one on the front with a balcony

The hotel is located in a quiet area of town, about 15-20 min from the heart of la concha beach and just 5 min walking from the beautiful Palacio Miramar overlooking the bay (take the short cut steps). If you do not mind walking, it is nice but you can always catch a bus (3 euros) or a taxi on the way back (8-10 euros to the center). Rooms are very modern and comfortable, and the people at the concierge are always willing to help with any need. Parking is kind of expensive (13 euros/day). If you are able to get a good deal like we did (through Orbitz) it is an excellent solution to visit the wonderful San Sebastian.

There were a number of annoying things, the curtains and windows were not designed to be opened without a struggle everytime. The single beds, were dangerous as my poor partner rolled over from his side and fell between the beds as they moved apart. The shower is great and the room service staff were cheerful and rooms were cleaned well. The whole place seemed flat and there seemed to be a 'whatever attitude'. We walked into the town or the bus stops right outside the hotel. It was great exercise walking up and down the hills. If you like a resort type hotel you may enjoy this more than we did. Better to eat out as food is pricey and great choices in the main town.
