 SLEEP.

As my friends told me and I agree, accommodation standards in San Sebastián are generally good, but prices are high and availability in high season is very tight.

I stayed in a hotel called Astoria 7. Very good location, average priced, and very clean. If you’re looking for budget hotels, any NH hotels in Spain should be reliable and budget friendly. For boutique hotels, I heard that Villa Soro is a good option with a location by the beach.

THINGS TO DO.

  • Rent a bike, tour or personal and wander around the streets, and old town (La Parte Vieja)! Its beautiful.
  • Checkout El Paseo Nuevo
  • PHANTOM BEACH – La Concha Bay (option: 10-minute boat ride offered by Motoras de la Isla – Paseo Mollaberria)
  • As for many places, Hop on Hop Off Bus tours are a good option to see different attraction spots.
    • Stops include:
      • Republica Argentina Street, in front of the Victoria Eugenia Theatre.
      • Teatro Victoria Eugenia
      • Townhall-Alderdi Eder gardens
      • Plaza Zaragoza-Hotel Londres
      • La Perla-La Concha beach
      • Ondarreta beach
      • Funicular-Peine del Viento
      • La Sirena hostel
      • Igledo Mountain-Theme park
      • Antiguo-Las Esclavas
      • Miramar Palace
      • Justice Palace
      • Buen Pastor Cathedral
      • Gros-Pinares Square
