A lovely Villa. Beautifully enchanting - inside and out. Lobby, staircase, library/living area with fireplace, bar and breakfast room were just right. Stylish and spacious rooms with outside terrace for tea, coffee or better yet a glass of wine. One of San Sebastian's best for that home away from home feeling. Comfort and service "the best".

San Sebastian is one of the coolest Spanish seaside resorts, offering great surfing and gourmet cuisine. And our stay at the Villa Soro made it even better. Our room (12) was spacious with a comfortable king-size bed, an outside terrace, and a large marble bathroom stocked with Penhaligon products. Breakfast was lovely and we enjoyed having a drink in their stylish lounge. And all of this is only a 10 minute walk from Zurriola beach.

A special thank you to the staff who were incredible.

Arrived in San Sebastián at this wonderful looking hotel with my friend. Really looking forward to the wel recommended place with great restaurant. Booked 2 rooms via the web and paid the full cost of the two rooms in advance. The hotel made a mistake and only reserved one room and was otherwise fully booked. We had to move to another hotel. Lost part of our day through the hassle; the second hotel had a later check-in time. An unexpected and not so fun surprise

Dear Lundungirl,

First of all I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

Regarding your comments, I would like to point out some matters. You booked the rooms through an online travel agency (you paid to them, not to the hotel). Some weeks ago we changed the system and during the migration process there was a failure with your booking. It was our fault and that is why we assumed full responsibility. Hence, we invited you to have a drink in our bar, we booked a hotel of the same category located in the city centre (facing the sea) and we paid a taxi to there. The check in time of Villa Soro is 3 PM, and you checked in the other hotel at 2:40 PM, one hour later than you arrived to Villa Soro.

I am deeply sorry about that. I hope you enjoyed the visit in San Sebastian and I remain at your disposal in case that you come back to invite you to a free stay in Villa Soro.

Best regards,

Ander Elortegi

We stayed at Villa Soro for several days and enjoyed our visit. Great staff, terrific rooms with a view out over the rooftops of the old area of Donostia, Spain. We will always stay there if there is a room for us.

Room Tip: Take a look at the floorplan and see what fits you best, we were on the 2nd floor and liked it.

This hotel is really great! I loved staying here. Everything is perfect, the rooms are spacious and really pretty, staff is friendly, ever common area is well decorated. They take care of every detail and make you feel you are special while staying there.
We stayed at the main house, however you can also stay at the old stable, that has been turned into hotel rooms.

Room Tip: The hotel is located on an avenue, so you will have to close your windows at night because it can be...

Quiet large room with a good bed and excellent bathroom. Parking is provided and the location is excellent--along the bus route that goes directly downtown, but within easy walking distance of the beaches and the city. And the staff is excellent. What is there not to like?
