Very grand, old style hotel. Our room (which was a triple) was enormous. Total luxury throughout. No pool but a great gym. Breakfast was amazing - a must! An expensive hotel but one that delivers. Location excellent too.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled with friends

We decided to have lunch at the Maria Cristina hotel .
The atmosphere was wonderful.
The place is very luxurious . Service was outstanding.
All the dishes we ordered were great.
The fact that the waitress spoke English made it much easier for us. ( unlike in many other places we stopped)

As a foodie, describing my trip to San Sebastián as a pilgrimage is not an exaggeration & thanks to the very lovely staff and management of this hotel, it took a lot of worry off my mind.

Staff helped me secure reservations for the top restaurants in advance and also provided a very thoughtful local food map. Hotel location is near enough to the pintxos bars so it is walkable even if you indulge yourself with txakolí.

Rooms were amazing & every bit like the pictures. Simply a joy to return to after a long day. Big thank you to everyone for making our trip so wonderful!

Booked this hotel after checking on multiple sites that it was pet friendly. It isn't. Pets are allowed but really not made welcome. They would be much better saying that pets are not welcome. No facilities available and we had to make sure the dogs didn't bark!

This is a fantastic hotel, great location , attentive staff, plush rooms but at times I felt we could have had a little better service especially in the bar and outside seating areas however still a 9 out of 10.
