Hotel Karlos Arguinano
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Zarautz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2017

We were very lucky to find a room (at the last minute!) last week in this charming hotel/castle (only 12 rooms so must make reservations in advance).Our room had a lovely terrasse in front of the Ocean (Mar Cantabrico) with outstanding views of sunset and sunrise in the morning just before a lovely and delicious breakfast. Everything was perfect: the personnel so kind and professional, the confortable bed, room and bathroom impecably clean and the garage facilities enormously appreciated given the difficulties parking a car in Zarauz. One one small regret: having had a late lunch at Getaria the same day we were unfortunately not hungry at diner time which we regret as we would have liked to try Karlos Arguinano's restaurant. Needless to say that we definitely plan to go back and thank them for the marvelous welcome we had.

A great location right on the beach
A mini Castillo if it were, it's sticks out at the top end of the promenade away from the cafe/bar end
There's no lift, so be prepared to lug your case up the flight of stairs
Room is small, but adequate, although didn't find the pillows comfortable

Not sure I would be happy staying here during a vacation, but for a biz trip, I can't complain

Breakfast is served in the cafe part of the hotel and is pretty basic
Staff are friendly and helpful though

Wanted to eat in the supposedly famous restaurant of the same name, but apparently it's still off peak season and so it was closed
So I made do with simple tapas and a beer outside instead

Stayed for 2 nights while away on business with the supplier booking this little gem of a hotel/restaurant for us. Right on the sea front with stunning views and the chef is a Spanish tv celebrity! Comfortable rooms with very friendly, helpful staff. Hope to stay here again in future but with time to look around the area next time.
