After having spend a day in San Sebastian we decided to spend the last night at Hotel Gudamendi which is really outside San Sebastián on one of the hills. Have a real close look on your GPS to reach the hotel safely, it’s tucked away between the trees. Views are amazing from the hotels terrace. Rooms are a bit old... More

Positive: Nice hotel on the top of Mount Iguelda. Good-sized rooms, very clean, well equiped bathrooms. Nice breakfast. Lovely pool, did not at all have the bad experience other tripadvisors describe. Found the hotel to be better in real life than on the pictures, especially the pool-area (though dressingrooms and public toilet didn’t have the same standard as the rest... More

There is no way this place can be classified as 4 star. Initial room request was ignored. It was admitted there are only 3 double beds in the hotel. Internet connection was fleeting and when operational, was poor. When we queried this, we were told by staff that the hotel's internet connection was poor. Stayed here as we booked late.... More

We stayed on a Friday and were lucky that there was no wedding or party. The hotel does not warn you beforehand but there is a card in the room to say there are frequently problems with noise and parking at the weekends as it is a popular destination for weddings.

The hotel has a great location (albeit not of easiest access), with a view over the La Concha beach. We visited in April, and the 20 eur we payed per night for the sea view was for nothing as the fog covered the entire panorama (as we understand is typical in spring). The beds were lumpy and the toilet had... More

Having read the reviews, we booked the hotel with trepidation. The entry garden does appear a little neglected, but we were pleased with the room (book sea view for breath taking), the service and the location. If you want to be part of the human soup on La Concha beach, then this rural feel isn't for you. It was a... More

Rude, unhelpful staff! Remote and few facilities! Even the mini bar was empty! When we inquired about transport into town they didn't want to help! Pool looked inviting but for some reason not in use?!?! And noise- either from staff cleaning and moving furniture during siesta, or other visitors upstairs flushing the toilet at all times of the day and... More

The hotel is charming with lovely views of the sea. It is quite far from the centre of town, though you can get a cab or catch the bus - which leaves every 30 mins 750m from the hotel. I would recommend hiring a car, that way you can explore the gorgeous surrounding towns, or pop across the border to... More

From the internet publicity, we expected a wonderful mountain top resort..We arrived to an almost empty hotel(with good reason) on a hill about 5 km from San Sebastian, but with almost NO views of the water. The trip up to the hotel was beautiful, the hotel was a disappointment. The swimming pool was closed and dirty(end of May)..not even possible... More
