I spend a couple of days in San Sebastian the last time in june 2012 at this wonderful hotel. It is a signiture or luxury collection hotel, where almost every celebrity visiting "Donostia" make their choice to saty at. This property domains the best view of the "La Concha" bay and beach, and overlooks the Urumea River and Cantabric Sea, really uncomparable location surrounded by gardens and promenades .
Recently the hotel has added a modern wellness center, featuring a swimming pool, gym and spa, but its historical charm and style remains intact. The rooms and suites are still decorated following the Empire and Reina Ana´s style.
It may be a bit expensive, but worthy to give it a try as its historical environment is cautivating.
