Hotel Maria Cristina *****

Star quality

"Since it opened in 1912 the 136-room Hotel Maria Cristina has been intimately linked to the history and cultural life of San Sebastian. In the late 19th century the seaside town on the southern point of the Bay of Biscay became a favorite destination for royalty and aristocrats who came to enjoy the sunshine and newly recognized therapeutic properties of sea bathing. A traditional afternoon stroll along the boardwalk offered an opportunity to see and be seen while the many cafés and open-air terraces were filled with high society."

  • "The splendid Belle Époque-inspired interior stands out for its majestic columns, 19th-century portraits, exquisite silk brocades and spectacular chandeliers, allowing you to experience opulence in its purest state."
