Conveniently located near the waterfront and the old town. Nice short walk along the water will lead you to the old town and the la concha beach. Hotel parking is a bit of a distance away from the hotel but is not a big problem. Friendly reception service particularly at the day time. Helpful advice.

The hotel is clean, the staff were very helpful and the view from the room (108) over the bay was very good.

The Hotel Parma is a small 2 story hotel located with a good view of the ocean and the river inlet. In fact, there were some surfers there one day.

We stayed here in October, so not really beach weather, but it looks out on the water. A great location also for walking around town.

Very clean hotel with a nice room. Reception staff could not have been more helpful and advisory. Parking is a problem but that could be the same for any hotel in the city. We would definitely stay there again. Preferably when it is less windy.

Great little hotel near the old part of San Sebastián! No lift but only 1 floor up. Rooms small but clean and more than adequate! Staff are very welcoming and eager to offer advice on what's happening in town. All in all a good place for a small break.
