Located in San Sebastian’s historic city centre, Hotel Maria Cristina is surrounded by gardens and promenades just a short walk from the main beach and the historic Old Quarter.
This Belle-Époque palace is the city’s best known and grandest luxury hotel. In its commanding position overlooking the Urumea River, the Hotel Maria Cristina has been closely linked to the cultural life of the city of San Sebastian for more than a century and has hosted illustrious visitors to the city’s famous film festival such as Elizabeth Taylor, Julia Roberts, Woody Allen, Richard Gere, Brad Pitt and Susan Sarandon.
Hotel Maria Christina is ‘old world’ grand but has been beautifully updated in impeccable style. High ceilings, intricate cornices, gilded mirrors, and outstanding service are the hallmarks of the hotel. Its famous cocktail bar – called Dry – is a popular way to start the evening and, if you’re not heading out to experience the city’s legendary cuisine (which would be a shame!), we would most certainly be happy at the hotel’s Saigon Restaurant with specialties from Indochina, Japan and Vietnam.
The hotel has 136 rooms and suites. Beautifully styled, generally in pale blues, greys and cream colours, and featuring modern technology and a dazzling range of services, options range from Classic, Deluxe or Premium rooms with either garden or river views, or treat yourself to one of the magnificent suites, including four Royal Suites, some of which feature terraces offering stunning city views.
It’s a 2 hour flight from the UK to Bilbao, followed by a 1 hour transfer to the hotel.
