Just returned from an excellent weekend in San Sebastián with a group of friends at the Barcelo hotel. It's been 27 years since my wife and I spent our honeymoon in the Maria Christina hotel and we were not disappointed. The Barcelo is an excellent great value hotel, great rooms and friendly staff, approx 10 mins walk to the beach...

I stayed for two nights as part of a group tour and enjoyed my stay. Here is a summary of my experience: PROS: -I really enjoyed the breakfast as I finally got my sourdough bread for toast and the chef made my eggs fresh to order whilst I stood in front of him - the breakfast is a good selection...

I enjoyed the excellent bedding and the hydro-massage shower. The breakfast is good with a lot of variety. The location is good in a calm neighborhood not too far from Playa de la Concha. The service (front desk and restaurant) is not bad but they could give at least a smile if they are trying to exceed customer's expectations.

it is a nice hotel. A little bit far from San Sebastian old town. With 25 minutes walk to old town isn't a bad experience. Nice view walking along the beach to old town. Room is clean. Recommend for anyone who would like to have a nice stay in San Sebastian

We're a same sex couple and found the staff to be very warm and welcoming. They were helpful and good with English for the moments where we struggled with Spanish. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne on the house, as it was our honeymoon. Lovely concierge and clean, modern room with reasonable room service prices. Best thing...

Although a nice hotel, the thing that let it down was the breakfast. The continental breakfast looked quite nice, but the cooked breakfast was well below average. The fried eggs looked as though they had been fried hours before. They were hard, cold and stuck to the serving dish. The bacon also looked as though it had been cooked well...
