Hotel Palacio de Aiete4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Great place - reasonable price, not too far from scenic historic district. Very clean, eco friendly, and modern amenities.
Me gustó el hotel, queda a 10 minutos del centro pero hay muy buen transporte público de bus. No cobran parqueadero. La cafetería del hotel es muy mala, nunca tienen nada de lo que uno quiere.
Hotel is perched high up overlooking the city, so it has great views. A bit out of the center, but with frequent bus service, not a problem. Never tried the restaurant which seemed to be overpriced, but enjoy some meals in the cafeteria, which were reasonable. Staff very helpful and informative and seemed to enjoy their functions. We arrived very early and still managed to get a room upon arrival to take a short nap.
Our first stop on our short trip to northern Spain was at the Palacio De Aiete Hotel in San Sebastian. I found the route to the hotel a little confusing, with Spain's fascination with multiple round-a-bouts, but we finally got there. The staff at the desk was friendly and spoke excellent English. Not a complete must for us, as my wife speaks passable Spanish. The room was clean and modern with a nice shower in the loo. Comfortable European style beds, TV, and free wi-fi throughout the hotel with no password needed. Downtown San Sebastian is within walking distance, and 6-8 euro's one way by taxi. On the morning of our departure we received wonderful directions to our next destination from the font desk. When I commented on the clerks excellent English, he told me he had taken advanced courses at university to gain more fluency. All in all a great stay.
Very nice hotel, great staff, and free wifi was a real plus! The place was a great value. The only downside is that it was a good 25 minute walk to the center of town, and would have been a serious uphill hike back to the hotel, had we decided not to cab it. A comparable hotel in the center of town would've been extremely pricey, so the value is definitely there!
The service at this hotel was superb! The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I would strongly recommend this hotel and will return.
