Although I gave the Maria Cristina just an average rating, it is the only luxury property I know of in San Sebastian. My concerns with the hotel are that there is little to no information provided by the hotel about the hotel and the surrounding areas. Also, while sitting in the lounge, having a late afternoon glass of champagne, the manager (I think that's who it was) began to vacuum a shade (over a light fixture) or something. That didn't do a whole lot for the atmosphere. Housekeeping left a welcome card for another guest in the room and didn't make up the room until approximately 4PM. Then, they never did the turn down service.
The good aspects of the hotel are that it is conveniently located. The rooms are large and well decorated and the baths are spacious and well appointed. Room service breakfast is quite good, but downstairs in the breakfast room is a very mediocre buffet.
