« Beautiful View »

I enjoyed the beautiful view and delicious/reasonable foods in the restaurant of the hotel. The room and facilities were a little old. Two electric outlets did not work in the room and I had to charge my mobile phone and PC in the bathroom. Internet is very weak. According to receptionists, the hotel was fully booked and when many clients use the internet at the same time, they have problems internet connections. I had the difficulty so many times during my stay.

« Good after a poot start. »

We arrived tired after a long drive. The check-in was a little slow as other guests were also arriving. When we got to our allocated room - great view BUT it stank of smoke. Returned to reception (as they were not answering the phone) to request a a new smoke-free room. Was told - "oh yes the second floor is our smoking rooms floor". We had not been asked our preference. We were reallocated another room on the 1st floor - not as good a view and slightly smaller (I doubt it was the privilege room we had booked) but by then we were exhausted and past arguing. The bed linen still had a slight cigarette smell - inevitable if it has previously been used in a smoking room or if the air conditioning serves both types of rooms. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HAVING ANY SMOKING ROOMS IN 2017? The hotel is superb, the views spectacular, but getting into town is quite a trek - funicular, bus and walk but the view compensates.

« Great hotel in a lovely position overlooking the sea »

We have just left this hotel having spent one week there. Following the reviews we booked the sea view rooms which were recently refurbished to a high standard and they were really nice and quite large. The view from every where is great, especially the lounge bar and restaurant. All the staff were very helpful. The pool was another first class facility if you wanted some shade whilst sun bathing. It isn't cheap but well worth it

Lovely setting, Lovely hotel, quite unique, very helpful and professional staff. Only complaint Restaurant options a bit limited, and room service food menu also very short ( And VERY Salty,) would have liked a couple more options, especially for vegetarians and a wider choice for children as in every way the hotel is well appointed for Families, but the food choices in the restaurant for children were not. Please note also that the bedside light switches can only be reached by getting out of the bed, unless you are 7 ft tall, which is a bit annoying- could you move them lower and nearer to the beds??? otherwise, very good all round.

« Great location, perfect service. »

It was great. At the registration me and my girlfriend got a room with a view that was not completely satisfactory for us, and the personel was extremely kind, and gave us a different room with an amazing view. So, the hotel, room, pool, bar, and everything else was great. I'd definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you for make us having a great stay.

« Beautiful setting, nice room and great breakfast, but must choose correct access road if arriving late at night. »

Stay was good on the whole; room was nice, and the breakfast great . Bar reception room also very pleasant. However, guests MUST be pre-warned that one of the access roads to get to the hotel is closed at night, especially if they indicate that they are arriving late, like I did. I drove all the way up on one of the roads only to find, at the end, that the access to the hotel was closed off at night.There was very small sign at the top of the hill of the correct road to take. This also happened to another group of guests who arrived just after I did, who were confused to see the road to the hotel closed off at the end. I had to drive all the way back down, at night, and tired, and take a different road up to the hotel. If not for this issue, the rating for overall experience would be higher. There MUST be better indications/warnings provided for guests. Also, there was a fire alarm one of the nights, for about a minute. Not fun to get dressed up quickly and prepare to evacuate at 4AM. I hope this was not because of someone smoking where they should not in the hotel. PS. Questionnaire is TOOO long! Should be done within a minute, over 2 pages.

Excellent hotel with a fantastic location on top of Monte Igueldo with superb views over San Sebastian. The inside of the hotel is much better than the outside which looks a typical 1970's/80's concrete block. The staff were very friendly from checking in to checking out. Quality of food for breakfast was excellent. Outdoor swimming pool was superb as were roof terraces to sit out in the sun. Small gym but adequate for a short stay. Housekeeping was very good. Privilege room was very well appointed and free soft drinks and Water plus Nespresso machine were very welcome amenities.

« We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, the view was breathtaking. »

We were greeted by a lovely young man upon arrival at 10.00 pm, he was always welcoming when we saw him each day. We appreciated the walk into town each day, taxis when needed were quickly despatched and transfers to and from the airport were easy. The pool was cool - very cool and it was entertaining to watch every one gasp but successfully cool off.

Overall we had a great time in the hotel The hotel is quite a long way from the centre of town but the fantastic position and views makes up for this We found our initial check in a bit difficult and were kept waiting to see if we could upgrade our room which was frustrating. As it was taking so long we decided against this but were put into a horrible dark room with no view. We were very unhappy and felt we couldn't stay there and hence ended up paying for an upgrade. We then had problems the 1st evening as we returned late to the hotel but walked back up the hill to find that the road was closed at the top (we were not warned that this happened) and even though there was a door to the hotel which was locked we were made to get a taxi to go all the way round to get into the hotel. It would help if guests were informed that there was no access to the hotel after a certain time in the evening. In an ideal world I think it would be good if the Funicular could be open until later to allow guests to get up to the hotel or alternatively maybe the hotel could provide some kind of transport from the bottom of the hill to the hotel later in the evening (maybe at a set time, eg. 21.00, 22.00 and 23.00) Overall the room was good and the pool area was lovely

We found that there was an overall lack of hospitality from most of the staff as if every request was a chore.

« poor service mainly at reception with no qualified resources »

to check in, it took us 20 minutes just dealing with the team at reception. 1) we booked a pre-paid room, but it seems that it was not paid due to their system, so we paid again. When we checked-out, they told me that i still have to pay the room even though i did pay it when i checked in. Unbelievable 2) at reception, i asked specifically for a twin bed, they said that yes they will give me a twin room. Once in the room, we got a double bed not twin. We had to go back with our luggages to the reception again, and to discuss for another 10 minutes with them.. 3) at the bar; we asked for a Champagne rosé; they said they do not know what it is, i did ask for a wine carte, they said that it doesn't exist...Asking for what kind of beverage was available was the same experience of a beggar begging for something 4) we sat in the lobby, we did ask that they clean the table in front of us as it was really bothering to see all tea and coffee cups and glasses used in our view. i can go on and on...

« Stunning Views from the top of Monte Igeuldo »

Room - decent size with partial views of San Sebastian and the sea. Could do with a bit of a refresh Breakfast - reasonable selection although the restaurant struggled to cope with the number of guests during a couple of the days. Nice pool area, just need to bring the sun next time!

« Spectacular views from this old school hotel. »

This lovely old hotel is situated atop Monte Igueldo overlooking San Sebastian and the sea.While certain aspects of the hotel are showing their age, the staff was excellent, the view amazing and the environment relaxing. Note the if you stay here without a car, you will need to walk up the mountain, take taxis or use the funicular. Also, if you are driving your GPS might send you up the backside of the hill to the rear entrance. Better to take the long way around.

« Sad »

We enjoyed our two days with you, but sadly my wife left a small pair of silver / gold earrings on the side table. We rang later on our departure day, and was promised a quick response. It didn't come so we rang the following day and explained the issue again. We were promised the reception team would speak with housekeeping and call us back. They didn't. I rang for the 3rd time today and was told they searched the room, but nothing was found. They were not especially expensive, but had sentimental value. Very sad.
