“A great value!”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

I was a bit nervous when my husband said he booked a 1-star hotel for the second leg of our honeymoon. This was going to be a first! Hotel Zaragoza Plaza is more of a 3-star hotel without a doubt!

The lobby, rooms, and dining room were modern and clean. The bedroom was simple, furnished with what was probably Ikea furniture, but it was clean and did the job. There was also free WiFi, which we were able to pick up on our smartphones, allowing us to (albeit slowly) browse through our wedding photographs that our photographer sent us. The location was wonderful -- we were in walking distance to the beach, pintxos bars, and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Hotels in San Sebastian are expensive is you go high season, so you may well wind up here if you don't want to splash out. And you could do worse. As other reviewers have said, it is a basic hotel- the rooms aren't huge, the furniture is a bit cheap, but it is in a great location, the rooms which face the inner courtyard aren't noisy, and you have all of San Sebastian's tapas bars a beautiful fifteen-minute stroll away along the beach. The staff are helpful, there's parking nearby, and the breakfast, if it's included in the price is not bad (I wouldn't complain). Basic, but good.

Room Tip: The square in front of the hotel isn't noisy at night, but you may be best off getting an inner...

the location of the hotel is brilliant. it's not on the beachfront but ony a 5 minute walk away and very very close to all the local bars and restaurants. However it is a very very basic hotel. small room and very expensive breakfast( you're better off going to a little cafe nearby) they offer free Wifi but honestly the connection is very very poor , don't know why they bother..would def. go back to san sebastian but might consider a different hotel in the same area for the same price... the staff were friendly enough though:-)

Room Tip: try to avoid the rooms facing into the quad.

The best thing about this hotel is it's location just steps from the beach. Other than that it's a basic generic hotel, so if you're looking for character this isn't for you. But I had absolutely no complaints and would recommend it.

There are only two things going for this 1-star rated hotel: budget price and location to the beach. Easy enough to find with GPS but the nearby parking costs 20 euros a night and closes between midnight and 8 am.

The rooms do not have peepholes in the doors, nor does the sliding glass door to the tiny balcony fully latch (this caused me some concern for safety). Street noise at night was typical of a downtown location. The room itself was very small with 2 twin beds. The shower unit's fixture was broken so the shower head sprayer wouldn't stay in place - I eventually just let it drop to the tub and used it from there. It appears they've tried to cover up a decaying or moldy grout job on the tub with rubber moulding. Only one towel in the room but we got more when requested at the front desk.

Internet is free but if you get a room away from the receiver, it won't work. We had to go to the second floor "lounge" (a small airless room) to connect - signal was strong there.

The staff were cordial and could speak English well enough. If your breakfast is not included in your rate, don't buy it. It consisted of a meager selection of breads, tea or coffee, muesli, yogurt and a limit of one ham slice and one cheese slice per person. There was fruit salad (canned) and a few apples.

Other reviews here have said the place was OK for what it is, but I guess my standards are higher. Next time, I will pay more and stay someplace else.

Room Tip: Book another hotel
