We stayed at the Niza for three nights as part of a Northern Spain tour having seen positive reviews on Tripadvisor. On the whole we were favourably impressed with the hotel which was clean, recently restored and with clean and modern furnishings. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful, though it was noticeable that some of the men on reception... More

We just checked out of the Niza today, leaving 2 days early due to the quality of the room, the rudeness of most of the staff and the fact that the room was so overpriced. When we checked in we were given a room overlooking the street (which we expected based on some rather terse emails from the hotel advising... More

Clean, efficient, brilliant location, characterful building, right on beach. Would have like tea making facilities but really nice breakfast room downstairs so nothing was a problem. Staff lovely and helpful. San Sebastian gorgeous. Would recommend.

At first we were thrilled w/ the location and ocean view room- we were looking forward to sleeping to the sound of the crashing waves. At the hotel restaurant we had to get up and ask for our 2nd, 3rd drink and the check. The worst was ~9:30pm when below hotel is a night club that played "thumping" music until... More

Location location location! Hotel Niza is right at by the seaside and has its own entrance out to La Concha Beach. It has its own restaurant and cafe but reservation in advance is required to dine in the restaurant. The front desk staff is a bit of a hit and miss, if you get the right one the service is... More

I was pleasantly surprised with Hotel Niza. It reminds me of a W with less trendy furnishing and more well appointed interior! Crisp sheets, comfortable bed and beautiful view. Walking distance to shopping and old town.

The Niza is brilliantly located. Our well appointed room had magnificent views. The front of house staff and restaurant team provided excellent service. The restaurant was a bonus as we expected to eat out to have the best food.

This hotel was the icing of the cake on my ten day trip to Bilbao, Pamplona and San Sebastian. When in San Sebastian I wanted to stay by the beach promenade and enjoy a little bit of luxury. This wish was fulfilled; hotel had a touch of old fashioned fame but a very modern and friendly service attitude. Room was... More

The Hotel is in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately the staff were not very helpful and friendly. I booked more than a month in advance, requesting a room with a view over the sea and also a parking. On arrival I was told that the Hotel parking was full and also received a room overlooking the street. I had to find... More

To start off with the pros, this is by far one of the best hotels in San Sebastian, location-wise. It is situated right by Bahia de la Concha with stunning views of the bay when you get a beach-facing room or even just by hanging out with a drink by the bar. I loved walking into the hotel feeling like... More
