We visited as part of our honeymoon for four nights and we couldn’t recommend this hotel more highly. The room was huge and I don’t think I’ve ever slept on a more comfortable bed. The staff also went out of their way to leave us a bottle of bubbles to celebrate on arrival. Can’t wait to return.

No wonder it’s rated as the best hotel in San Sebastian, our stay there was amazing. The location is perfect, everything is walking distance (pintxos area, Playa de La Concha, Antigua,…). The team there was fantastic, helpful, friendly, always looking to help us have a perfect stay. The room we had was absolutely fantastic. I hope to be able to cone back to the city soon, and this hotel will be my first option for sure.

We spent five nights at the Maria Cristina in July to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was central to everything. We had a spacious room with a view of the river. Breakfast was included and was fantastic. We were there on the hotel's 109th anniversary (which happened to coincide with our own wedding anniversary), so we had a nice surprise in our room of a celebratory cheesecake that was delicious. We received five star service throughout our stay, and definitely will be staying here again the next time we visit San Sebastian!

It took me about 2 years to write a review this hotel. This was our first time visiting San Sebastian (Aug 2019). What a gorgeous hotel. Beautiful room, centrally located to all the best tapas and great staffs. We enjoyed having our pre dinner drinks at the courtyard. Just stunning. Close to a beach and is a walking distance to the town. Thank you for making our stay a memorable one.
