In 1964 the Atxega Palace was named historical monument of Usurbil and it was established as a Hotel in 2000. It has 12 rooms decorated in a rustic way where the combination of stone and wood makes the Palace a charming place. The Hotel Atxega Palace is perfectly located, close to turistic and cultural places in the Basque Country such as, San Sebastian (7 km), Zarautz (0 km), Txillida Leku in Hernani or the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao. 12 rooms equipped with individual bathroom, air condition, T.V. satellite dish and internet WIFI.
Nice and helpful people. Fascinating building.
The location of the hotel, behind a tall hedge with respect to the main road and on a rise above the access road allied to the very limited signage identifying the hotel, made locating it difficult. The GPS was not helpful.
the staff were amazing
The bedroom was huge and designed to be totally unique. Jose was extremely helpful and friendly. Ask him for a guided tour of the Cider Factory in the nearby mountains - scenery is spectacular!
The value for money is great, very simple & modest but charming. The location at first looks a bit distant from Donostia but the village has its charm. It is very relaxing. The food is great (dinner & b-fast) and the staff is lovely. We really enjoyed the experience. If you are looking for something simple, calm & realaxing on the countryside of the Pais Vasco it is a great choice!
The noise from the highway.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly and in the cafe/bar next door. Its proximity to San Sebastian and the building is really lovely. It was very clean and excellent value for money. Catch a bus into San Sebasitian it only cost 1.30 euros and a taxi back is only 18 euros so not bad, but look in the town for a couple of bards and restaurants.
We were near the reception area and it was a little noisy in the morning when they started serving breakfast, but that is really nit picking.
