Stayed 1 night at Villa Soro. Beautiful set in a private garden. Room with everything +++ and a small seclusive terrace outside the room.
Fantastic breakfast with quality products.

When we made the booking there was only the double room available, and it was in the basement in the main building. A very basic room with 4 blank walls, it was very dark during the day because there was no windows, only a door at a corner that leads to a small patio area. It was very dark at night because there were only 2 dim bedside lights and a dim lamp at a corner. The pillows were smelly, carpet was a bit dirty. The service was ok, staff were nice enough. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room was pleasant although too crowded. Wouldn't go back again because at 265 euro a night I definitely expected more. Next time I'd just stay at Hotel Iturregi and drive to san sabestian if needed.

We stayed for one night whilst touring. Not a cheap option but a lovely hotel only a few minutes walk into the main town and beach. The most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in.

We stayed for 2 nights. Loved the location (5-10mins walk to old town). The beds were superbly comfortably, staff were great (friendly and providing lots of info), breakfast was top notch.. I cannot think of anything negative to say.

You would do well to find a better boutique hotel in San Sebastian (or Donostia as the Basques likes to say). The rooms are warm and cozy, the location is perfect (5 minutes from the sea and the old town) and great service (excellent restaurant recommendations, possibility to use hotel bikes for free, etc).

Off course, your primary focus in relation to your visit to San Sebastian is to do with the food (I highly recommend MArtin Berasategui and Akelare for that, btw, or if you dpn't want to go for more country style cooking, try Saltxipi), but to make it an ideal holiday a rustic hotel is required and Villa Soro delivers on that front.

My only negative comments are that the gym is fairly small, there is no pool and the breakfast is very tasty but limited. However, all this is to be expected from a boutique hotel.

Overall Villa Soro ranks among the very best boutique hotels I've stayed in. You would be hard pressed to find a more suitable stay while in Donostia.

Room Tip: Make use of free bike rental service

Villa Soro is located a bit out of the centre but on one one the main boulevards , but importantly is set back from the road and thus very quiet and only a few minutes from (three star Michelin Arzak). Perfect choicre.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and I wish it was more. We had a wonderful relaxing time in San Sebastian and Villa Soro was the cherry on top. The room was well-kept, the service friendly and helpful and the breakfasts perfectly delightful. We enjoyed our stay.
