Fodor's Review

The graceful beauty of the Belle Epoque is embodied here, in San Sebastián's most luxurious hotel, which sits on the elegant west bank of the Urumea River. The grandeur continues in salons filled with Oriental rugs, potted palms, and Carrara marble columns and in stylish bedrooms, all recently renovated and many with lovely river views. Marble bathrooms add still more pampering, with deep soaking tubs and separate showers. A piano player pounds out an eclectic medley of tunes nightly at the bar.
