Construction nightmare…
Major construction next door/drilling etc. Lackluster rooftop bar. When I asked to speak to the manager about my room/was told manager does NOT speak to people! ? Not on GPS/hard to find/had to hail a taxi driver to help me get to the hotel.

8/10 Very good

Best view within the city
From reception, room service, to bars and restaurant all staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The hotel rooftop is one of the highest points where u can get an amazing view of San Sebastian. The food at the restaurant downstairs was also one of the best meals we had in the city. And it was only a 7-8 min walk to the beach!

I had an excellent stay! The hotel is in a great location - only a short walk to the old city and beach. The hotel is really clean and the rooms are very spacious . What made the experience even better are the staff. They are very attentive and friendly to their guests. I highly recommend staying at this hotel!

Fabulous stay!
Fantastic hotel, beautiful decor and helpful staff. Great location near the old town, everything is walkable and train/bus station is a 10 min walk. You can get direct bus to Bilbao airport from there. Amazing views of San Sebastián from the roof top pool. Only thing that would have been a nice extra is a bar by the pool.

4/10 Fair

Air conditioner did not work
When I arrived at my room, it was warm but I figured it was just due to me arriving; when I returned, room was still warm so I called the front desk, they said they would look into it; 48 hours later my room was up to 77 F, so i called front desk and they accessed my AC and just said it was clogged up with dirt; it did work better, but was never really cool; I ended up sleeping with the balcony door open I heard another guest almost in tears telling front desk her inability to sleep was ruining her vacation. bottom line is it is a nice place, but if you value sleep and can't sleep in a warm room, this is not the place for you.
