Good View, nice pool. Unattended staffs.

Bad service and hospitality in a fantastic region

Anonymous Couples - 23/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is located with a beautiful view in a fantastic cultural and culinary region. But don't be fooled by the nice surroundings, because the hotel itself is not a pleasant place to stay!

Best view in town

Great location and best view in town. The pools has the most stunning setting in Spain!

Francisco J. M. F. Couples - 17/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Dirty, expensive, unfriendly staff. The toilets were not sanitized, there was almost no soap in the sinks, unacceptable that there is only air conditioning and no heating or a cooker in a privilege room, it was unbearably cold. A table with food remained in the corridor of the rooms for two days. The restaurant El Torreon was very good.

Never again!

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Sarah Couples - 15/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked the room plenty of time in advance, directly on Mercure website rather than any other provider, hoping that booking without intermediaries would have meant a guarantee of the services stated on the reservation. We selected a privilege room with bay view and BALCONY. Surprise-surprise upon arrival: the room had a view on the bay, but not a balcony, just 2 windows. Once informed the reception about the issue a rude member of the staff stated that there were no other rooms for us and that we were staying in that one without balcony because we arrived late in the afternoon (is then booking a specific room an optional? What is it meant for?). Please notice as well that this specific room has a relevant surcharge in terms of cost per night. Well - the solution? A STANDARD room with balcony but without view (!!!), at the same price already paid for. Unbelievable, no other solution found, nor a compensation has been proposed (if not money, maybe offering the breakfast? This is a really basic customer service rule!). The second night we have been relocated to another room, with balcony and with partial view of the bay. I got in touch with the Mercure customer service as well, but didn’t hear back from them ANYTHING. Again, disappointing. On top of this: - 4 star classification for this structure is definitely over promising, maybe it could be 15/20 years ago - price per night for the service you get (none) is crazy high - do not state that soft drinks provided in the minibar are included in the room fare if you just offer 2 bottles of water - rooms are dirty, there is dust everywhere and we found several hairs both in the toilet and on the bed Never again, Mercure lost a customer.

Fantastic stay and hospitality

The Mercure San Sebastian Monte Igueldo is excellent place to stay in San Sebastian and enjoy the city. The location of the hotel is Unique and give's you a great view over the city. Going up and down take the funicular to walk alongside the beach to the city. In the evening the restaurant serves a tasty dinner in the grand dinner hall. Highly recommend !

Nice hotel, service people helpful. Only the time at the restaurant to between the time we ordered and the time we got the food was far too long.

stephenearp 05/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Three nights stay to celebrate my daughters 23rd birthday. I had one room and my daughters had their own room, both were lovely with sea views. The breakfast was excellent and they also provided gluten-free rolls for my daughter. It was the same breakfast menu every day, would have been nice to have something different. The evening reception were extremely helpful in booking the spa and taxis for us and assisting us to get our Covid tests before returning to the UK. The only issue we had was that I had booked the restaurant for my daughters birthday meal with the receptionist in the morning but they had failed to make the booking for us so when we turned up for dinner they didn’t have a table for us…. 😡 This was very upsetting as it was a special evening. Eventually after over an hours wait in the bar we eventually had a table. No apologies or even the offer of a free drink. The pool area is outstanding. Lovely hotel but maybe need a few more staff as not very attentive service.

Classical hotel with the "grandeur" of last century, great location with bad WIFI

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

lucvw2021 Couples - 05/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

A great location offering a magnificient view over the ocean and the bay. Unfortunately, it's a building from last century with limited sound isolation between the rooms (typical for older buildings) but also very limited wifi-connection (very slow and dropping off, even after asking the reception to reboot... unable to stream). There is no excuse of having bad performing wifi, even in an older building, for a 4-star hotel.

Good stay

Chris D. Couples - 04/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel was fine, location was wonderful, however, if you wanted to go into the Old Town, it was a bit of a pain. First of all, you had to queue to get the Funicular Railway to the bottom. You then had to walk to the bus stop or try to get a taxi. Ordering one by phone is not easy if you don’t speak Spanish! Once in the Old Town made it all worthwhile…thoroughly enjoyed the stay even with hassle of getting there!

overall experience was good. I booked a room with a balcony though. we did not have a balcony. that was a bit disappointing. the first morning during the breakfast one of the waitresses forgot to bring us the dulces. so we had half a breakfast for the full price.

Iconic place in one of the most beautiful spots of Europe

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

DDGM 21/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

Great hotel, emblematic location, good food, nice staff. Worth getting a room with views. You should do an early reservation in the restaurant ahead of checking in- they do not keep spare capacity for guests- not great since you only find out when you arrive.

Difficult to locate

Customer review rating 4.0/5

John.b. Couples - 12/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The biggest problem is finding the hotel which is not well signposted as a Mercure. It is at the top of A large hill with two routes to the top one of which is blocked off but is the route taken by a new Audi sat nav. The route which was open involves a private toll road which is cheap 3.5 euros per person but is a surprise not covered on the booking site.

Great product, poor service

Customer review rating 3.5/5

A. C. Friends - 11/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The service level wasn’t meeting the expectations but the hotel is in a beautiful place, the product is well maintained and the view is stunning. Few things; - not sufficient informations shared upon checkin or even before (parking, access, bkfst menu, checkout time) - we got served some gin tonic with water instead of gin, the Barman rectified it and offered some drinks but still… not okay - take out “free minibar” from the rate it’s misleading

Excellent renovation

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Isler0 Couples - 01/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We have always liked this hotel but it has now been radically upgraded. The rooms are excellent and comfortable. The public areas are redecorated and redesigned to a high standard. Some issues with service and attitude from the head waiter in the restaurant but overall highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your comment. We are pleased that you have enjoyed our renovated common areas and rooms. We wait for you.

Top Hotel -- Top of the Mountain

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

John S Couples - 29/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

This is a very stylish hotel -- Beautiful bar/ reception area -- very comfortable . Our room was spacious , bed comfortable , modern bathroom. The view from the hotel / our balcony over the bay of San Sebastian was amazing particularly at night with all the twinkling lights . The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We took the funicular railway , situated at the back of the hotel, down the mountain to the beautiful bay . There is a sort of funfair at the back of the hotel so do not know what this area would be like at the height of summer as we were there mid October. All in all I would recommend this hotel and would definitely return should we be in San Sebastian again.

Thank you very much for the time spent leaving your comments about your stay at the Monte Igueldo hotel. We hope to see you again on your next visit to San Sebastian.
