A bit out of town from San Sebastian and not easy to find but plenty of free parking. But half hourly good bus service into resort (1.70 euro one way) on coast road 10 mins walk away. Quiet location, great views. Good breakfast reasonably priced. Overall the hotel is expensive for what you get - it's a 3 star really... More

Hotel is on a mountain next to San Sebastian (in Monte Igeldo) hence views of the city, sea and mountains are wonderful. Gudamendi also has a large seasonal pool but the area around it is unfortunately not very well taken care of; hence sunbeds are not very comfortable and cement around the pool is not the nicest. Hotel is very... More

Great location overlooking the city. Lots of parking and all the staff were brilliant. Room was a great size, with a separate room for the kids. Be prepared to have to drive out for dinner, but well worth it to come back to the night view from up above the city.

Stayed in Room 107 on ground floor. It is a twin bed room with beds pushed together. Cost was €69, room only (no breakfast). First up, it is worth mentioning you definitely need your own transport in our opinion to make the most of staying at Hotel Gudamendi or surrounding area. It is at the top of a hill, up... More

The hotel is located on a hill outside the center of San Sebastian, 10 minutes drive. The views of the city and beach are phenomenal and very worthwhile. If you have a car, this is the place to be in San Sebastian.

Nice spot on top of the hill overlooking the city. Hotel was a little understaffed and we were waiting a good while to get our room. The barman was fantastic and made the best gin and tonic! Just what we needed after a long day on the motorbikes. The rooms were great, with nice strong showers

Up some riding roads this hotel has a stunning view of the sea. But when we visited I was a little disappointed, it is looking shabby, they were starting to renovate it but looked a long a slow process. We had our 2 dogs with us and the cost of there stay was nearly as much as ours !

The hotel is on a hill, you must have a car to get there otherwise you wouldn't enjoy your stay. The architecture is very old but it's well renovated. The staff is very friendly too. You can join the city within 10 minutes by car
