Hotel Zaragoza Plaza
Reviewed 8 October 2009

Technically, the Hotel Zaragoza is a "one star" hotel which just proves that "star ratings" are created by.....whom???? I would give it at least "3-stars"! On the tiny garden Plaza Zaragoza with a nicely lit fountain just 1/2 a block from the Playa la Concha, the Zaragoza is an undiscovered gem! Immaculately clean, very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, included, you would be hard pressed to find a nicer place for the price - off season US$95/in season US$150. Room 107 has a small, but nice view of the bay and a small balcony. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are well insulated from street noise.
My only recommendation is to improve the air-conditioning. It takes a while for the room to cool down.

This was a great find - thanks to trip advisor. Amazing location within San Sebastian; about 50m from the stunning La Concha bay, and dead central for everything this amazing city has to offer. A great hotel with friendly, english speaking staff. Very clean, with a sweet breakfast to start the day. In a city with expensive accomodation, this is a real gem.

Hotels in San Sebastian are generally pretty pricey and this place is definitely one of them.

Pros:
--Good location - 2 minutes from Playa de Concha beach and roughly 15 minutes to the train station and 5-7 mins to the pintxos bars/shopping area
--Clean and decent rooms (ours had a terrace!) - the rooms are just the right size for a short break in San Sebastian. Also, our room was always kept very clean (the cleaners cleaned our room and even folded our clothes while we were out)! We were pleasantly surprised every time we went back to our room
-Very clean hotel
--Friendly and helpful staff - they always had a smile on their faces and were always willing to help
--Good, powerful shower in the bathroom
--Good selection of drinks/snacks in the minibar

Cons:
--A bit overpriced for a standard room

Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and i'd definitely recommend this place to people who want to visit San Sebastian.

This is a no-fuss hotel - rooms are small, not many on-site facilities - however, if you are in San Sebastian to enjoy the lovely beaches and weather, this place is perfect.

Its location is excellent, being just one block from the beach. I also got a reasonable (by San Sebastian's standards) room rate. The rooms themselves are nothing to write home about, but were clean and quiet. The staff were also friendly and got the job done.

In summary, this hotel is clean, functional and reasonably priced. Its location is the main advantage.

The hotel is pretty new and it shows. Tiny reception desk. Double room was very dark, just two lamps at both sides of the bed, no way to write at the desk. Wifi is for free but the speed is very slow, almost useless sometimes (< 1Mbs)

I liked: the location and price

I disliked: dark room, bad internet access

My partner and I stayed here at the last minute for 1 night in July 2008. We found Hotel Zaragoza Plaza very clean & quiet. We paid $120AUD for a Private Double Room. The room consisted of a Double Bed, wardrobe, drawers, Hair Dryer, Telephone, TV, mini fridge, desk and Aircon. The room was very clean, modern and very comfortable. There is elevator access and WIFI access for the Internet if you have a Laptop. We did not have a Laptop so the reception staff allowed us to use their Laptop in our room. We also needed to check out at 5am the next morning. This was not a problem, reception is open 24/7. They will arrange taxi's or any other services you require. They also gave us information on the sites & directions in San Sebastian. Breakfast is not included. The location is great with only a short walk to the beach or shops. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
