“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

It's a very nice hotel, price and quality are good. It's a bit outside of the town but it's a very nice walk down to the centre, with a nice view over "La Concha"
It looks like a new hotel, the rooms are big and fully equipped. The beds are very big and it's nice a calm.

Very nice and new hotel a little out of the city. Good parking just outside the hotel. Internet worked without any problems. We did not try the breakfast, but restaurant looked good enough. Only minor annoyance was the long walk to the beach (15 mins) first and then back and then to the city (20 mins). Of course we could have taken the bus more, but somehow we often chose the little too long walk. I guess I will choose a downtown place next time, but really not the fault of this nice hotel.

The hotel is okay but for most people it will be a long 15 minutes walk downhill to the beaches (or take a bus)... and to the city center in between the 2 bays. I would say : good for business guests, far less so for tourists... unless you like walking...I myself liked the walk, even after midnight. I loved the city and the bays... I would walk for hours if necessary to get there :)

Room Tip: Frontside rooms have street view (with just maybe a bit of city view from the upper floor)... no vie...

Nice modern hotel. Good size rooms for europe but poor TV options. Friendly staff that speak English. Good value for money but away from the main town and at the top of a hill. We enjoyed our stay here and the walk up and down the hill (about 2km) to main beach helped work off the Cerveza and tapas! Nice caves bars nearby. Plenty of fruit shops handy too.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony so you sit outside and read.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the service very good . The room was modern and very well appointed with everything you required. The property was well priced in a quiet area. The only small downside was that our room looked out on to the road and did not seem very private from people parking out the front . It is about a 20 minute walk to town .

Room Tip: High room not overlooking the road.

We stayed here one night on our way to Portugal.
Palacio is a functional hotel, 20 minutes away from the beach and city center.
The restaurants opens late for breakfast. Price - quality is ok.
Don't expect a cosy holiday hotel, but clean and functional, not for longer than 1 or 2 nights.

Reviewed 29 June 2013

I stayed here on a recent trip to San Sebastian, and picked this hotel because it was the most affordable of the 4 stars at that time. I wouldn't suggest it and certainy wouldn't go back.

While looking at a map, it seems to be close to the beach, in reality it is a decent walk, and about 30 minutes from the old city (ie where you will be for dinner and at night). This is mildly annoying when walking there in the day, but since there are no buses after 10:30 PM, you're looking at either a 30-45 minute uphill walk in the dark or an approximately 10 USD taxi ride every night to get home. It also makes it hard to stop back in the hotel to drop of beach stuff, etc.

The hotel itself isn't up to 4 star standards, and really is more of a 3 1/2. The biggest issue is that you can hear everything through the walls and windows, from yelling in the street to the baby next door that would cry at midnight every day. They were not able to move us when we complained about the noise.
