“Warm hospitality and cosy atmosphere on a great location”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We (group of 6) used Bista Eder as our 'base camp' for a mountainbike trip to the Basque coastal region.
For us this was the ideal place: cosy spacefull rooms (some with stunning seaviews) with good beds, great freshly prepared breakfasts, a roomy garage underneath to safely store and mainatin our bikes, a nice little swimming pool for the after-ride refreshment, conveniently located on walking distance of the authentic Hondarribia city centre.
The most important asset: the friendly staff/owners that make you feel inmediately at home.

Room Tip: Rooms on the seaside have great views over the bay.

We stayed at Bista Eder for two days at the start of an organised Mountain Bike trip arranged via Basque MTB and a further two days at the end of the trip. Bista Eder offers a number of different rooms to stay in, all of which were clean, tidy and roomy. We were given the run of the basement area which is ideal for the usual faffing with and securely storing of our bikes. We were also given off street parking for our transporter, along with access to a washing machine to clean our dirty riding gear. The owner is very friendly and made our stay feel like a real home from home. Will definitely visit again. - Peter House

After reading rave reviews we were slightly disappointed. The view is certainly fantastic but the accommodation was fairly average and expensive for what it was. Breakfast was just about OK but fruit would have been nice. Maybe it was 'shabby chic' but we felt our room needed upgrading somewhat. Almost the same price as some of the wonderful paradors we had been staying in! Hosts very friendly and welcoming.

Great location with great views. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We where visiting the area mainly to see San Sebastian, but were pleasantly surprised with Hondarribia. The area has a great atmosphere and community feel. Hondarribia also has a great selection of local restaurants.

Firstly, this is not a hotel and should be listed as a B&B.

It's a nice little spot - rooms are fresh, clean and spacious - but it won't suit everyone.

It's located in a totally residential area a good 20-25 minute walk from Hondaribbia town centre (uphill on the way home!)

Parking is available in the driveway or on street outside the house.

Breakfast comes at the cost of an additional €8 but is simple, fresh and filling. OJ, coffee, cereal, omelette, croissant, ham & cheese.

The house boasts a lovely view over the town and has a decent sized garden with table chairs and a (very) small swimming pool.

It's ideally suited to mountain bikers, with specific storage room in a modified garage along with facilities for self catering and washing & drying laundry.

It's pricey in my opinion for what you get but perhaps that's just the going rate in this area?

All in all, it's an above average B&B about which I have no complaints but is definitely better suited to mountain bikers or those with cars.

Hondaribbia itself is a nice little spot where you can easily spend a morning strolling along the sea front it around the old walled town but it's main strength is it's proximity to Donostia (San Sebastián) and the surrounding attractions.

The accommodation is clean and the host is very friendly. Excellent views of the spanish / french border and the Pyrenees. Breakfast was very good, facilities were more than adequate. Hondarribia has a great rustic feel and some excellent restaurants and bars which are a 10 minute walk away.
A charming and delightful place to stay.

Bista Eder is a family house with some guest rooms in a separated wing. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is very good, especially when you have it in front of the beautiful view of the Bay of Biscay.

Hondarribia is a charming town, lies on the border with France, with a lovely coast atmosphere and good fish restaurants.
