"Mmm, not sure"
The room was very clean and good, the breakfast standard hotel fare albeit overpriced, the staff excellent but the location is quite a long way from the old centre. Location is important and this hotel is quite a way from the railway and bus station now that the bus station has relocated. The hotel is fine but not the location.
This hotel is perfectly located for exploring San Sebastian and is extremely comfortable as well as being beautifully decorated and furnished. From reception through to the rooms everything looks good, works well and makes you feel like you're in the lap of luxury. My stay here was paid for by my employer and I didn't get to see the price but the whole place had a really classy feel to it. The staff all spoke superb English and are clearly well trained in hospitality. The bar is a great place to enjoy a beer, breakfast is wholesome with a great range of choices and reception is spacious and light with lovely art work scattered about. My room was superbly equipped and the bed was as comfortable as any hotel bed I can remember sleeping in. I can think of no negatives about my stay here and if I'm ever fortunate enough to visit San Sebastian again I hope that I can afford to stay here.
"Easily found and very comfortable."
We had 2 nights here. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly. Breakfast was just amazing! Fantastic choices. There is underground parking, easy to find and easy to use. It's about a 20 minute walk to the old town along the river.
"New Year in San Sebastian at the Amara Plaza"
This is the second time we have used this hotel and no doubt will use it again. The service, the cleanliness and the staff are excellent. We booked for six nights, covering the New Years Eve fete and had mistakenly booked a single room. Because the reception staff had noticed that we had booked for two people for the New Years Eve fete they had put a double room on standby in case it had been an error and not that one of us would be staying with friends. They could not have been more helpful. Although we had thought that the price of the fete was high we thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening (which ended for us when we gave up at 4.45am, although the party continued after we left). The food was excellent, as was the wine, the atmosphere and the entertainment. We can recommend this to anyone. The rooms are spacious and clean as are the bathrooms and there is plenty of hot water all day and night. The breakfasts are exceptional and include anything you could want including wine and cava('). The bar is cheap and the measures are large, the café has a good selection of tapas, and the restaurant serves a reasonable meal. The car parking is very good, underground with two floors allocated to hotel guests and direct access to the reception floor. The hotel is a good half hours walk into the town centre (albeit a very easy and pleasant walk) but there are 2 bus services from just over the road which take you directly into the town at a cost of less than 2 euros. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and thank you to the reception staff for their kindness and assistance.
"Christmas in San Sebastian"
The Amara is a very convenient hotel in San Sebastian....good parking and plenty of small cafes and bars close by...about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach through beautiful steets. The Hotel has good service, large rooms and friendly personal. We stayed 3 days with no problems. For "Internet Users" their "free internet" was poor at best. It's a public service (RUBI) and not secure....for doing anything secure this is a "Unsat" provider. The Small Cafe in the Hotel is very average...food served cold and looked like it was prepared a couple of days back. The "best" was the morning Breakfast Buffet....just great! Everything you could want and really well done...this makes up for all else. For easy of coming and going I recommend this Hotel....just eat out and don't expect to have easy internet. Parking is 19 Euros for 24 hours and connects to hotel...easy entry and exit...A fun time in San Sebastian...
