My husband and I stayed here one night. We drove from Bilbao - we got a little lost but we were trying to use the GPS. Just going towards downtown will lead you to the hotel. It is one of the most spectacular hotels we've been to. It has the old architecture but all remodelled. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but only had to wait about 40 mins. We also got upgraded to a royal suite- wow what a beautiful room! (Spg platinum, paid with cash and points) It is beyond spectacular. I wish we could have stayed longer. The service was great and we enjoyed some wine after dinner in the hotel which was great. Breakfast was also amazing. We were allowed to have a late check out 3pm, which was truly appreciated and one of the first times this SPG amenity was honoured. We really want to return to San Sebastián as one day is NOT enough. When we return we will definitely be staying at this hotel. This is a jewel of hotel.
