                          The hotel is in a great location for visiting the city. It is clean, extremely comfortable and the door staff are extremely helpful. The extras they provide make it worth staying here. We did not eat in the hotel as we preferred to sample the local restaurants. Excellent value for money, would stay here again.

                          Location and grand building

                          Was a little overpriced as the building needs to be refurbished. I don't think it was 5 star. 4 star - definitely.

                          We were very happy with the hotelnalthough it is a little dated

                          room luxury

                          noise from local pub but that would be all hotels in the core part of the city

                          Beautiful, classy hotel built in 1912 but nicely updated. Gorgeous room and so handy for everything in San Sebastien

                          No on-site parking and difficult (and expensive) to use public parking

                          Beautiful, luxurious and charming hotel. The rooms were very spacious and facilities excellent. The location was perfect for city and beach.

                          Minibar beer 5 EUR. Buy a beer at hotel bar 5 EUR. Order the same beer through room service it is 7 EUR + 4 EUR Room service charge. Why the beer is marked-up 2 eur plus a room service charge is beyond me.

                          Elegant Hotel. Great Location. Superb rooms and ambiance. Would stay here any time.

                          I would not call this a complaint but for a five star hotel the front desk staff need to be better trained. While extremely polite and helpful the lack of a dedicated conceirge made it difficult to get good information on dinner reservations, accurate directions. Overall. our experience was very positive
