Gudamendi Hotel
Reviewed 30 December 2012

friendly welcome, the room was modern, clean and comfortable. The outside of the hotel reminds of good old times of the 50s which we likes. If you have a thing for retro you'll like it here. The views over the terrace are amazing. It is a little far out of town...

After having spend a day in San Sebastian we decided to spend the last night at Hotel Gudamendi which is really outside San Sebastián on one of the hills. Have a real close look on your GPS to reach the hotel safely, it’s tucked away between the trees. Views are amazing from the hotels terrace. Rooms are a bit old fashioned but ok. We were surprised by the basic breakfast for a 4 star hotel like Hotel Gudamendi and decided to enjoy this outside the hotel. For a quiet night outside relatively close to San Sebastian, this is a good choice, though nothing special.

Positive:
Nice hotel on the top of Mount Iguelda. Good-sized rooms, very clean, well
equiped bathrooms. Nice breakfast. Lovely pool, did not at all have the bad
experience other tripadvisors describe. Found the hotel to be better in
real life than on the pictures, especially the pool-area (though
dressingrooms and public toilet didn’t have the same standard as the rest
of the hotel). Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful.

Negative:
A bit far away from the town. We had a car though, and didn’t feel that the
distance was a problem.
Terrible food in the lunchcafeteria, like to send out a warning for it!
They don’t have a restaurant in the hotel, and the food is pre-cooked and
microwaved by the bartender. Don’t spend your money on it.

All and all:
I’d easily give my recommendations to stay at Gudamendi (but buy your food
elsewhere...)!

There is no way this place can be classified as 4 star. Initial room request was ignored. It was admitted there are only 3 double beds in the hotel. Internet connection was fleeting and when operational, was poor. When we queried this, we were told by staff that the hotel's internet connection was poor. Stayed here as we booked late. Will not make the same mistake if returning to San Seb.

We stayed on a Friday and were lucky that there was no wedding or party. The hotel does not warn you beforehand but there is a card in the room to say there are frequently problems with noise and parking at the weekends as it is a popular destination for weddings.

The hotel has a great location (albeit not of easiest access), with a view over the La Concha beach. We visited in April, and the 20 eur we payed per night for the sea view was for nothing as the fog covered the entire panorama (as we understand is typical in spring).

The beds were lumpy and the toilet had 2* features (sandpaper toilet paper and no shampoo for ex.). The hotel is quiet, though if you are a light sleeper, beware of the furniture scraping noises so typical of Spanish accommodation.

Too bad, as with a bit of love and attention, the hotel could be so much more.
