of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
A comfortable room and I especially liked the two heavy doors to the bathroom and the corridor for good sound insulation. More hotels should do this. Also the variety offered by the buffet breakfast was most appreciated when staying a while a fixed menu can soon get tedious. This hotel is very handy for the University, but a good walk into town.
"Nice hotel, great service!"
We were only here for 1 night but had a very pleasant stay. The room was very good and the staff were kind and helpful - in particular Esther/Esta who was EXCELLENT and she very kindly arranged to courier some clothes to the UK which the other half had forgotten in the wardrobe of our room! Gracias!!
"The real San Sebastian"
The Silken Amara Plaza hotel was an unexpected delight. Having read several reviews regarding the location being a little outside the "real action" of San Sebastian, we were pleased we stayed here as we got a taste of the "real San Sebastian" slightly away from the tourist strip. There are many excellent features to this hotel: great value for money; a delicious and diverse breakfast buffet; and well designed rooms where there are two doors between the bedroom and bathroom and also to the outside. This creates a bit of privacy that is often missing in hotels. The staff were very helpful. We loved the location. It is about 10 minutes walk along the river to the old town and on the way you can spend time in the cafes and restaurants that are frequented by the locals. A laundromat is close by, allowing for a freshen up if needed! We felt we got more of a sense of what San Sebastian is really like by staying here and yet it is a short and pleasant walk to the more touristy areas. I agree that the wi-fi is slow - but we were there for a break so it wasn't a big deal. You can pay for an upgrade if faster wi-fi is required. We would definitely stay again.
"Basic hotel with free WiFi from last cetury"
Rooms rather small with hotel furniture, bathroom etc basic, the free WiFi very, very slow. Hotel about 2 km from downtown but a good bus, nr: 28, makes a fast connection. Reseption and ber personnel very friendly, we got 2 free ticket for Goggenheim in Bilbao which was our next stop.
"One night in San Sebastian"
A very nice property with a friendly staff. Its about a 30 minute walk to the old quarter where all the good restaurants are located, but its a nice walk along the river or through new town streets. The room was well appointed, bed was comfortable and the bathroom was modern. My only disappointment was the walls and floors were very thin. I could hear every sound in the rooms next to me and above me. Seems like they cater to tour groups as there was a dedicated tour bus lot next to the hotel with 3 tour buses in it.
