    Nice, honest hotel!
    Perfect overnight stop between France and Spain Very helpful staff, decent restaurant, has a heated pool. Room was adequate. Very happy and would stay again!

    Good 6.0
    Reasonable hotel for a short stay
    We chose this hotel because the price was OK given how expensive nearby San Sebastian properties were. The hotel is a little old on the inside and rooms VERY small. Bed comfort was ok. The restaurant was nice and had good food. Overall, though, for the price it was a bit disappointing, particularly small room size.

    Exceptional 10.0
    We were exhausted & Thank you we were able to go online & book @ short notice, due to a problem on our journey from Southern Spain to Home in South West France. The welcome was exceptional, massive apologies as the restaurant was closed due to the time we arrived. Which was not a problem to us, as we just wanted to shower change & relax. The free bottles of water in the room were great, I went down to reception / bar & asked If I could buy some cold drinking water, nice gentleman said u have bottled water in your room, I said yes but its warm. 2 cold bottles given, no charge. Early start to return home, Great buffet breakfast from 7h, excellent, lovely staff, great room, great parking. Thank you & Hotel Donibane. We will be back

    Perfect for a quick stop
    I stayed here with friends for one night at the start of a trip across the Pyrenees. The hotel was very comfortable, the restaurant was nice and the staff were very helpful. The pool was also a very nice touch!
