We arrived and took the Metro to San Sebastián where we changed onto the Blue line getting off at station Avenida, from there a two minute walk to the hotel, around the corner from Louis Vuitton shop.
Marco was there at the hotel door and immediately took our cases. This was an indication where we found that ALL of the staff were just as attentive and super friendly.
Marco took time to point out places of interest on a map, telling us which number of bus or tram to take and warning us of the pickpockets!
Our room (no36) was large and very comfortable, in fact the hotel is stylish in it's Art Deco as all previous reviews make mention to.
The breakfast time suits everyone from early birds to late risers and was always fresh with a wide selection.
From 5pm you can help yourself to Port and pastries, these were delicious.
The hotel is in a good location, and as it's near the Metro then buy a day ticket €6 (buy for one person at a time, we thought we were buying 2 tickets but bought one ticket for 2 days!!) and you can hop on and off trains, buses and trams.
Thank you to all at the Britania for making our stay very memorable.
