This elegant and charming hotel, housed in a beautiful building with a neoclassical façade from the start of the century, is a symbol of San Sebastián. Its location on the beach of La Concha and just steps from the city centre is a luxury. Despite having been modernised and updated, it preserves intact its "belle epoque" traits.
Great 4 star hotel with an exceptional location, just a three minute walk from the beach. The hotel has an excellent restaurant, Kukuarri, which had the honour of receiving the "Revelation 2005" prize. Breakfast is also great, although I must say that if you do not take breakfast included, in the same street there are several bars where you can have a great breakfast.
This hotel is a 10 minute walk from the beach, but is very quiet. Breakfast was spectacular, including a chocolate fountain with churros. Rooms are spacious and clean, with a small terrace included. Highly recommended. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Hotel San Sebastián is practically on Playa Ondarreta. It's a reasonably-priced 4-star hotel with 90 spacious and functional rooms, wifi and minibars. The location is great, and there's a large parking lot if you're travelling to San Sebastian by car. Great service.
We came here for Christmas 2012, and it was a great success. It's quiet and peaceful, with friendly staff, and a skillful bartender. A good tip: you can reserve a parking space at the hotel for 16 € a day. Then you can leave your car in the parking lot when you go to see the city. The centre is a 15 minute walk, but there's a bus stop just a few metres away. The best option is to purchase the SANSEBASTIAN CARD in the tourist office, which includes 12 trips for 5 days + Free guided tour (1 person), and if you return it in good condition you'll receive € 1. Best of the room: the bed, very comfortable, and with spectacular views of the city from the 9th floor. The best deal we found was by dealing directly with the hotel and the telephone service was phenomenal. Their breakfast buffet looked good, but I didn't have it so I can't say for sure. We'll be back!
"You're in Nagisa Oshima's room, do you know him?". That was the first surprise I got in this hotel in the centre of San Sebastian. Alfred Hitchcock then welcomed me from cinema seats beside the lifts. There was a panel showing the 102 actors and directors who inspired this former cinema which has become a 4-star hotel. For movie lovers like me, it's an honor to stay in a room dedicated to Liz Taylor, Tarantino, Audrey Hepburn, Woody Allen, Orson Welles and Sophia Loren, decorated with frames of their most famous films and their biography as a headboard . The decor is modern and spotless. Downstairs, there is a library-lounge for anyone looking to devour a good book, even if they know that the city is calling out to them and they aren't going to spend any time there. The hotel is a 15-20 min walk from the city centre, which is quite far for San Sebastian but it is worthwhile. It has free wifi and the staff are very friendly, they even have Twitter!: Http://twitter.com/astoria7hotel/ Breakfast is the weakest thing about the hotel, lots of food but hardly varied, and a pretty bad coffee. You can order fried eggs or omelettes, although that is not stated anywhere and staff might not mention it when you arrive. At least you have breakfast with Richard Gere's eyes staring at you from the large posters that decorate the room.
The Hotel Villa Soro is ideal for a weekend in San Sebastian. The 25-room hotel is located in a late nineteenth century villa that has been declared a Historical Heritage Building. It is surrounded by a beautiful garden and terrace. It is some distance from the city center, but that's part of the charm - despite being a few minutes drive from the heart of the city, it's much quieter. Recommended!
