4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved the position, the service and assistance, and the quiet luxury of Villa Soro. It was lovely walking to the beaches and the various different areas of San Sebastian. Easy to drive to and park.

We loved our quick one night stay at Villa Soro. The property is immaculate, the bed is incredibly comfortable, and the included breakfast was delicious. It's about a 15 minute walk to old town, but that walk is helpful after a long day or night of pintxo hopping. Do not hesitate to book.

This is a return visit to this lovely boutique hotel that suits our travel style perfectly. Classic manor home in the Gros neighbourhood of San Sebastian that has been stylishly transformed into an elegant yet comfortable hotel that provides free parking within its secured property. Service is outstanding. Breakfast buffet elegant and generous array of organic products produced in the area. Our only minor disappointment was that we were expecting to have the same quality of room as our last visit which was more spacious with its lovely sitting room. Nevertheless, our stay was lovely. We enjoy having an afternoon cocktail in the hotel lounge, a great value and a pleasure to do before going out to dinner in one of the cities many incredible restaurants.

We had the pleasure of staying here for a weekend. It is a very nice hotel located in a monumental building. The rooms are quite large, equipped with everything you need. In the afternoon, you can sit in the back yard for a small snack and a glass of wine which we loved to do. Very friendly staff, helpful and accommodating. And they serve an amazing breakfast in the morning. This hotel definitely distinguishes itself from the larger top end hotels nearby.

The building looks like an old palace, very impressive. Hotel is surrounded by fence. There is a yard, enough place for parking. It is about 15 minutes to go on foot to downtown. Our room was on the ground floor with a mini garden. Breakfast was excellent.

We had a very pleasant stay here. Very nice staff and delicious breakfast. Comfortable room and lovely bathroom. It is a 20 minute walk from old town but we quite welcomed that to walk off the delicious food we had eaten!

This elegantly comfortable establishment offers large plush rooms, excellent breakfasts and on site parking. Located approximately 20-25 mins from city center on foot. Drive and park on underground public parking within city center or Taxi. Excellent service oriented staff.

This is a well run hotel with a low key atmosphere, very attractive and comfortable. We booked using the American Express Platinum benefit and were able to check in immediately upon our early afternoon arrival. Our room in the main building was spacious, with quality linens, a comfy king bed and bright and updated bathroom. Tall ceilings and high windows give it a classy "manor" feel. We were initially located on the "1st" (meaning 2nd floor), which rooms open into an atrium, with ours above the breakfast area. The first night we heard people coming and going and kitchen sounds from below (not noisy exactly, but not peaceful either). Being early in our trip and sleeping well an issue, we requested a different room. The hotel was extremely accommodating, and placed us in a room on the next floor up, opposite side, which overlooked the front and side of the property, and which was very quiet and pleasant. They even moved our luggage for us while we were out sightseeing. We greatly appreciated this and would request this room on a repeat visit. The breakfast was relaxed and good quality, in a cheery room with lots of windows. There is also a nice patio with covered seating and a living room. There is an elevator for luggage. There are additional, newer rooms, in an attractive annex building, tucked subtly behind the main building, which were were told has modern rooms with the same features. The hotel sits inside a wall on a property along a busy street, is surrounded by gardens and has convenient and unobtrusive parking. There is a long, mostly downhill walk into town, which we did several times, usually taking a return taxi. Taxis here are not inexpensive, but we noticed bus service along the front of the hotel and would look into that next time. (The front desk does not have bus information to provide, I asked, and I think that would be a helpful thing for the guests.). We liked the low keep atmosphere, but the service, while meeting every need, is not expansive. The bar is open in the afternoons but not staffed, and it wasn't clear how to get a drink or snack. While very helpful, the desk staff seemed limited in the services offered. This is an observation not a criticism, as we found the hotel to be delightful. We had a enjoyable stay and would return.

My partner surprised me with a trip to San Sebastián for my birthday...and WOW! What a trip! Starting with this beautiful hotel. From start to finish the service was 5 star. The location is good - a bit far from the hustle and bustle but perfect for us. The hotel is so luxurious. The room was nicely decorated and super clean. We asked for restaurant recommendations- the staff even called and booked for us, which took the hassle from us having to do so. Beautiful garden area- lovely for an early evening Gin and Tonic (which was superb!) please stay here, you won't be let down!

We were on a road trip to Mallorca with a classic car and needed somewhere that was comfortable, easy to access and with secure parking. Villa Soro fitted the bill perfectly. It is like being a welcome guest in a mansion of character with all modern conveniences
