Travel Blogs from San Sebastián - Donostia
Travelled from Barcelona to San Sebastián, 5 hours by train...so scenic, so beautiful. Heaps of agriculture, terraced farming, wind turbines, water ways, wildflowers, rocky mountains, super lush. If you are looking for a relaxing Spanish beach town, San Sebastián is it. Not much here in the way of things "to do", you can exhaust these easily in a …
This was our little luxury week. We stayed in a hotel on the main beach 'La Concha' with water views and a balcony!! The view of the beach from our room was amazing ! The room was as you'd expect a hotel in Australia......... really nice!
We had a great time there... the tapas was fantastic. We tired to find some paella but were …
... but is now a collection of shops and cafes. Gambling on the chance that one would be able to get good coffee there we stop at Café Hegoa and enjoy a welcome cuppa. Walking on we found a pleasant place on some rocks to while away some time and enjoy the sun. It was with some regret that we left to catch the train, without incidence this time, back to St Jean.
Once we had dined and packed we couldn't resist a final tour of the harbour by night. St Jean is a very pleasant place to ...
Leaving Madrid to head toward the north coast of Spain we
thought we had encountered the worst of the hills, but no, the van was
confronted again and again with further climbs all of which caused it to
struggle and meant that we were often pulling into the side to let those cars
behind us pass. The scenery was much the
same as the trip into Madrid, very harsh and although I looked everywhere not
once did I see a house that even vaguely resembled ...
... no balcony, but a full bed and a giant window. I am excited to have my own apartment, and be closer to the beach, but really hope the smell and hot water get fixed.
Until then I can just hang out at a lot of my friends apartments which are cloe by, and the beach (which is only a 10 minute walk away). Speaking of walking, we walk EVERYWHERE here. From my dorm, I would walk about 20-25 minutes to school, and then about 20 more minutes to the beach. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Niza San Sebastián - Donostia
After doing a lot of research on where to stay in San Sebastian I decided to go with Hotel Niza. It was a great place to stay. The rooms were clean and seemed to be remodeled in the last year or two. We went with another couple and I had requested oceanview rooms and we got them. Granted, it's the off-season in May so I'm not sure how full the hotel was...anyway, the rooms were great and the views spectacular. Also, the restaurant in the basement was packed on Saturday night within 5 minutes after opening. Really good food at a good price. My one complaint was that two of the female front desk clerks were somewhat rude and condescending. There was a man who was wonderful. So, if you can get by the front desk, the rest of your stay at Hotel Niza will be wonderful. NO REGRETS!!!
Loved the Niza
Our son, who was living in Spain, made the reservations for us. Staying there at the Niza, with the Promenade, the ocean view from the bar, the street view from our room, the food, drinks, people, everything made it the perfect dream come true vacation. We hope to stay there again in the near future.
Beautiful room, stunning view . If you are looking for a romantic holidays with you love one. this is the place.
Nicely done Niza!
I spent a couple of days at the Niza over Easter and was very pleased with the accomodation and the central location. The Hotel is very quaint (with the cutest elevator) and nicely decorated and our room was simple, fairly spacious, with clean lines and a fresh look. I found the staff very helpful and friendly despite reports to the contrary.
Another bonus is Bar Biarritz at the front of the hotel - which is an excellent spot to read the papers and watch the people on the promenade. I thought the Niza was great and would definitely recommend it - especially if you manage to secure a sea-view.
Bad Service-Poor Facilities
Stayed at the Hotel Niza for, thank goodness, only one night and found it a total dissapointment. The unfriendly staff had to be asked three times for a roll away bed which we had requested at the time we made our reservation. The room itself was less than fresh reeking of a chocking air freshener. Under the bed the wood floor was thick with dust and various spots on the walls and wood work needed attention.
Course when we checked in, even the lobby looked like it needed a good steam cleaning. Though we did get nice ocean view rooms (they made us e-mail and call twice) we might have been more satisfied with a warmer welcome and less attitude.
I had a great experience at the Niza. Spent a week in San Sebastian first week of Sept. with college friends from the states and we all agreed that it was perfect for what we were looking for. Beautiful views of La Concha beach, oceanfront rooms that we didn't even request, one with a balcony. Walking distance to the old town with great pinxto bars. Decor was very beachy and pretty, with a very cool Victorian elevator. The staff was very helpful even before we arrived, as I called several times to make changes to the reservation. And then at the end of the trip when we decided to go to Barcelona a day early, they let us check out a day ahead for no charge. Prices were very reasonable and simple continental breakfast was included. Would definitely stay there again on another trip and have recommended to everyone I know.
I had heard mixed things about the Niza, a pretty hotel located right
We reserved two double rooms for single use, requesting sea view rooms. The return fax could not promise ocean views, but upon arrival we were given neighboring ocean side rooms (mid October 2003). The price was astonishing -- 64 Euros per room, plus 7% tax (breakfast extra at 6.5 Euros). Continental breakfast can be augmented by eggs and bacon. We kept wondering when we'd discover the flaws, but there were none. Rooms were large, beautifully furnished and impeccably clean. Recently refurbished (very modern) bathrooms. Each room had an upholstered chair, desk, twin beds and matching night stands. PLENTY of lamps and sconces for reading. Cable TV with 4 English channels (also, French and German). Warm, helpful staff. Located right in the center of La Concha beach (wide sand), easy walking distance along pedestrian sea promenade to the Old Town with its dozens of tapas bars and restaurants. Popular inexpensive pizza & pasta restaurant in basement of hotel. Bar (entrance from sea side of hotel) serves the best grilled ham and cheese sandwich for only 2.6 Euros. I'm going to stay here again when I return to San Sebastian.
Bad time at the Niza
we stayd at the Niza hotel during the month of august , i reserved rooms well in advance , the hotel is well situated facing the la concha beach . the rooms facing the sea are reserved ( i guess by repeat costumers ) and we could not get rooms facing the sea , the rooms we got were on the third floor facing the street , to our great dismay the noise and shouts from passersby filtered into the room , the noise was awefull . breakfast is included in room price but it is such a poor affair served in a demeaning way . we left two days early couldnt stand the noise .
Niza couldn't be nicer
I spent four days at The Niza and loved it. There are wonderful paintings everywhere. It's chic, in a great location on the Concha and the staff are friendly and helpful. I was there alone and felt really comfortable. Try the thalassoptherapy centre just along the promenade - it's blissful.
