TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Codina San Sebastián - Donostia
The hotel was fine, not great but not bad either. SS is expensive at any time of year and this was a reasonable price for a reasonable room. Next to Ondaretta beach its a long walk to the Old Centre where the pintxos are.

The event begins at 8 a.m. when a first firecracker is lit to announce the release of the bulls from their ...
... city. Frank Gehry, the architect who designed the Guggenheim said he chose Bilbao because it was such a stylish city. It has wonderful museums, galleries and theatres and with such well groomed people and buildings, it seems so sophisticated!
Jeff Koons 'puppy' is a permanent exhibit in front of the Guggenheim, it looks as impressive here as it did in front of the MCA all those years ago.
... and tried out several of the famous tapas bars in the old area of the city. The beach views were spectacular from the funicular. Weather has been a mixture of rain, sun and wind - a bit like Melbourne!! There was plenty of time to hit the shops and find some footwear bargains.
It's now time to brush up on our French as we cross the border tomorrow. We're looking forward to our time in the ...
