This is a beautifully refurbished hotel in a central part of San Sabastian.
Excellent - within walking distance to the beach and to many excellent pintxos bars.
Also easily walkable to nearby shops.
Beautifully furnished with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and excellent amenities.
Clean and amenities regularly replenished.
Love how they have tried to keep the regal classic style of the hotel yet upgraded the facilities so it appears timeless.
The rooms are reasonably quiet but not entirely soundproof. I slept comfortably so this wasn't an issue for me.
Ample variety and delicious.
Very smooth and well executed concierge service.
I like how they email you prior to ensure that any requests are looked after eg. recommendations for pintxos bars (including the best pintxos to have at the place), arranging restaurant reservations, additional amenities that you want in the room etc.
Friendly and extremely helpful. Highly commendable.
The only thing of note that I thought could be improved was that the hotel kindly gave me a room upgrade. However, as I was travelling solo, the room upgrade ended up being two double beds stuck together so I ended up having a smaller bed compared to the original queen.
This stuck out as slightly out of character for such a great hotel.
I would definitely stay at the Hotel Maria Cristina if I return to San Sebastian.
