The hotel gives a general view of San Sebastian: it is very beautiful but veryyy expensive. I think it is without a doubt the most expensive city in Spain. People are very nice though. I have stayed in similar hotels for quite less, and better service than the one we received here.

We stayed at Barcelona Costa Vasca when we visited San Sebastián. Located a short drive (or 15 minute walk) from the heart of San Sebastián action, Barcelo Costa Vasca isn't quite in the center of it all. But it's close enough. The particular hotel room we were given had a smaller footprint, a 30" tv, a hot pot, a mini...

Be prepared to walk long distances if you stay here as the hotel is in a residential neighborhood and is a long way from the old town where all of the shops, restaurants and bars are located. There is no outlook and the staff are surly and act like they don't like working there. Hotel was a massive disappointment at...

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel, the rooms were so reasonably priced but were a nice size and included a balcony! The hotel is very clean and inviting, reception had champagne ready to welcome us upon check-in, and the bar and café area is a great spot for breakfast or a late night drink. The #16 bus stops...

I'll start by saying that if you're not a fan of walking and discovering a city then maybe Barcelo Costa Vasca isn't for you. I on the other hand enjoy the 20 or so minute walk along the coast to the old town. If you want to get to the there quicker the hotel does offer a free shuttle service....

Very expensive breakfast. We had actually expected a discount on arrival or something, but didn't. Location is not so good - it was a long walk to town. Nice room and good bed. Now, I need to type 200 chars here. It is hard to do and is a strange request.

This is a four star hotel, not five star, not three star, but four star. That pretty much sums it up. There's no real character to it, but it's comfortable and clean with everything you would expect. You couldn't really ask for much more than this in what appears to be a pricey town for hotels. Location is okay, but...
