Oh my this was so so good! We came on a spontaneous trip from Oregon to Biarritz, France, not really knowing anything about Basque Country, to see a favorite musician, Melody Gardot, perform. When our very good friends found out where we were going and how close it was to San Sebastián, a favorite of theirs, they insisted we make a trip there as well, so we did. We didn’t know much about the area, but they recommended we walk around the old city, so we booked a hotel there and OH MY GOSH IT WAS PERFECT - from the location, to the service, to the friendly and helpful staff, to the comfortable and beautiful room, we had no complaints at all, in fact we were blown away. From the moment we walked in and they handed us glasses of wine, to the second we walked into our adorable brick-wall-laden room and saw the view of the Santa Maria Basilica church directly outside our balcony, to the myriad of restaurants and excellent pintxos (tapas) bars, to the immediate access to the hiking trails leading up to Motako Gaztelua, a 12th century castle overlooking the city and the ocean, we couldn’t have written this script any better. When we make it back to San Sebastian, we will definitely be booking here again.
