A fantastic hotel for sure. Minutes walk away from Old Town and all the attractions. Located right on the river. Impeccable service and a very helpful concierge in Gloria Rodrigo who smoothed over some issues and provided excellent dining advice. As well located as this is, it is also a very quiet hotel at night. Beautifully appointed rooms also. If you are staying in San Sebastian, this is the only place to be. Nothing else comes close.

A beautifully appointed hotel with a convenient location. I'm not sure why the nightly rate was a bit high but it was a wonderful place to stay. My one complaint which I shared with the hotel is that from morning until late afternoon the cleaning crews and their equipment are in plain sight along the hallways making your beautiful surroundings look a bit unkept. We were coming from two other beautiful hotels in Florence and Barcelona where your suite was tended to twice per day yet you never saw a cart or personnel along the way.

Elegant and Classy

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2018

One of the top most amazing hotels I have stayed in to date, the reason I chose this hotel is due to the wonderfully decorated bar area with the beautiful blue leather upholstered chairs (yeah, I know, it's the little things that draw my focus). Upon my arrival, I immediately could not wait to get ready, so that we could enjoy those chairs, and to my surprise, we had thee best encounters with the Mixologists tending bar. Amazing drinks, and service through out the entire hotel -hands down, simply fantastic. I can not wait to return to incredible hotel a few more times in my lifetime.
