This was a great choice of hotel for us on our recent stay in San Sebastian. It is located on a steep slope overlooking the town and from some rooms (one of which was ours) it overlooks the beautiful bay. It is about 10 minutes walk to the beach down the hill and as there is a local bus (number 16) that runs along the seafront and right past the front door of the hotel perfect for the trip back up from the beach! That bus runs twice every hour and runs the whole way down to the "old town".(fixed fare Euro1.45)
The rooms were adequate though small but spotless with good en-suite facilities. The lobby,pool and general areas were clean, bright and attractive and there was a good sized carpark which is free for residents (pay parking in the town near other hotels could cost up to Euro24 per day).
The staff deserve a special mention for their helpfulness as I managed to leave the headlights of my car on overnight, resulting in a flat battery but the staff managed to get jump-leads and the maintenance guy brought his own car around to give me a jump start!! Thanks again and very much appreciated.
The only downside was that there was no restaurant or bar on the premises although for a few hours in the early evening they did have a waitress to serve a drink or tea/coffee in the lobby. Having said that the town itself is brilliant with hundreds of bars and restaurants and a fantastic vibrant but safe atmosphere and a good "party" feeling. We will definitely be back again to San Sebastian and to Hotel Avenida.
