    Great base for 3 nights. An extra-large bed was a bonus. In the evening we visited El Bar de Gorka it was nearby;))

    Great

    Let's start with the good stuff: the hotel is a real five-star, probably one of the best I've ever stayed in. Everything is great, starting with the staff, who are always on the lookout for any hints or suggestions. You really do feel like someone very special. We went through all the rooms and obviously the room, conveniently renovated and very tasteful, without falling into the stridency. Concern for all details, even the smallest. Cleaning of 10, you do not find defects even if you look for them. Breakfast out of the ordinary, I think the value for money is unbeatable. location of the hotel is perfect for everything: eating, strolling, having a drink, getting to know the city and surroundings, shopping, business and other activities.

    service parks cars. As defects I would put not having a swimming pool (something obvious. on the other hand) and something to improve is the issue of parking the vehicle: they say they have a car parking service, car stays on the street, parked in front of the hotel and exposed to everything, in San Sebastian it usually rains, as it has been my case, until you say so and then I do not know if they really keep it in the covered and guarded parking, as they say and charge you at least 24 hours, because when you go to breakfast you find it again on the street, That's why you save the service (which they also charge you for) and then they say they've cleaned your windshield. I don't know why, I think this detail should be taken care of much more.

    Everything in the hotel met and exceeded my expectations. huge, comfortable bed. spectacular breakfast and super friendly staff. we arrived they had a bottle of wine and Serrano ham in the room and they put chocolates every night. Those are the kind of details that make a hotel extraordinary. the shop next to the hotel sells products from the region that are wonderful. We'll be back!

    At the time of the check out we had asked for a transport to San Sebastian airport and when they confirmed that it had arrived as our bags were already packed we got on the car. I thought the trip was taking too long and when I asked the driver he said he was taking us to Bilbao airport. He had to turn around and drive at full speed so that we could get to our flight in time. We called the hotel to alert the airline and they were waiting for us. It was tense but luckily we arrived on time.

    Excellent helpful staff. We arrived early and asked to leave our luggage We did not expect to be able to check in but they obtained a room for us which was ready well before the check-in time. The staff member at the desk greeted us by name when we returned after a short walk.

    A hotel of this standard should offer free Internet access. Every other hotel we stayed in France and Spain
