The location is perfect for sightseeing in San Sebastián. The rooms are clean and tidy but the bathrooms are a little outdated. The Biarritz bar serves an adequate all you can eat buffet breakfast with tea and coffee for 11 euro's per person. This consists of hot and cold breakfast items but all came at the same temperature during our... More

Stayed for three nights the beginning of August. I walked to the hotel from the train station with a 50lb wheelie bag- so it is definitely doable. Hotel is right in the beach- so in my opinion for 69€ for a single room- it was worth it. My room was 54- tiny, with having to angle my suitcase into the... More

I had read mixed reviews about hotel Niza and was a little tentative however on arrival (and we were late due to a train strike in France!) I was pleasantly surprised and can say without hesitation that I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. The location was excellent right on the seafront with access via the street and...

Great hotel. Clean bright rooms. Lovely restaurant with delicious food especially the fish. Breakfast very high quality. Exceptional value for the money. The bathrooms were well laid out and very clean. Friendly staff at the front desk.

This hotel apparently belongs to basque modern sculptor Eduardo Chillida's children. The walls are decorated with his engravings. But other than that and my nosiness, one would not know who the owners were. They have nicely-- but not lavishly-- remodeled this turn of the nineteen-twentieth century hotel. For instance, they have a lovely old style elevator that functions with modern... More

Lovely hotel combining Victorian style with modern amenities. Hotel staff were great. Rooms very clean, comfortable bed, beachy feel, modern bathroom. The location is the best part - right on the promenade overlooking Concha Beach. A nice 10 minute walk down the promenade to Old Town - just enough to walk off the delicious tapas.

After reading various reviews online we decided to book The Hotel Niza in San Sebastian. First of all it had a wonderful view of the sea and Concha Beach. Charming would be a good word to describe The Niza with its classic decor and its 103 year old elevator with a bronze plaque inside stating 1911! Bar prices were reasonable... More

Nicely appointed hotel right on the beach. Good value. Includes enclosed restaurant with promenade and beach views as well as seating on the promenade itself. Adjacent underground parking - it's tight so don't try if you have anything other than a compact car. Rooms fairly simple but pleasant. Ours did not have AirCon but we had the balcony door open...

This hotel must be the best located in San Sebastian. It is right in the middle of the beach promenade, perfect for a walk to the old town or the shopping area. The bar overlooks the beach and is a great breakfast option or an air conditioned haven on that hot day. The staff were friendly and the hotel clean.... More
