We spent a weekend at the hotel. We had a superior room and it was more than I expected. I would rate it with five stars. The staff is very professional and helpful. The quality of the room is superb. The staff at breakfast could not be more attentive. I think is a great option and good value for money compare with other hotels which lack in personality.

villa soro is a beautiful old world hotel. our room (in the old part of the hotel) was attractive and very comfortable. all the public areas are pretty, nicely furnished and relaxing. the breakfast was good and all the staff we met were very professional. the hotel is within 5 minutes walk of the lovely arzak and alona berri restaurants and within 10-15 minutes walk of the old town pintxos bars and main beach. a very pleasant experience.

This hotel is simply stunning. The rooms and public areas are immaculate without being cold and stark. In fact, the hotel has a cosy ambience with fresh flowers in the entrance and magazines scattered in the sitting room. The staff are unobtrusive, yet seem to appear out of nowhere if you need anything. The deal we had included breakfast, allowing us to take it in our rooms for no extra cost. It came served on a tray with linen napkins and plenty of food. Our room was in the stable block and we had a small terrace which would be lovely to take full advantage of in the summer. The room was spacious with all the amenities you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The bathrooms are sumptuous with lots of goodies to pamper yourself with.

The hotel is located about 20 minutes walk from the centre of town. We didn't mind at all as it's one of the loveliest hotels we've stayed in and can't wait to go back.

Normally not one to write reviews, I felt compelled to express my concerns about this Hotel following our recent visit. We booked our trip to San Sebastian a few days prior to arriving, staying in a standard room. Based on the images of the hotel on the website we arrived with certain expectations. These were soon shattered when we were directed to a ground floor room in the quarters behind the main building. Whilst the room was relatively large, it was also relatively empty. Worse was the fact that the only natural light into the room was through the glass panel in the door. However, these are apparently not the worst rooms in the hotel as there are a number in the basement of the main building.

When we approached the staff to express our concern over what we believed to be a misrepresentation of the hotel, they (he) effectively dismissed us. We were told we could pay an increased rate for one night and the leave the next day or simply suffer a cancelation fee and go.

In summary, we had only chosen to stay at the Villa Soro as a result of our late booking. In hindsight, if we had been able to book further in advance the Luxury Collection Hotel (in the middle of town) would of offered both a "cheaper" (yes, cheaper!) alternative as well as what I would expect to be a far higher level of service.

Overall, one of the most disappointing "Luxury" hotels that I've experienced in Europe.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during San Sebastian's Fiesta week.
This is a beautiful sofisticated hotel about a mile and a half from the old town ( a pleasant walk). Lovely room and delightful staff although breakfast whilst OK was a little disappoining for a hotel of this quality (and should be included in the price of the rooms which are not cheap).

Impeccably presented period Villa hotel, located in an established area, close to the centre, once a fashionable residential area. Worth noting the hotel is a on a very busy road, so we reserved a room in the modern extension, set back behind the original house. This afforded us a tranquil stay and room was well proportioned and furnished. Although no restaurant, drinks and snacks are of a very high quality and beautiful presented with 5 star-style attention to detail. The same was true of the breakfast which we took in the room, as we had a small garden terrace. Staff very professional and friendly.
Although there tae o views of the famous La Concha bay, I recommend this property over the more touristy promenade alternatives. We had a rental car and were able easily drive the short distance into two and park but there are cabs and buses – and of course you can walk when it’s not raining!
