Where to Stay
Puts you in the culinary epicentre of San Sebastián. Excellent pintxos bars are just a stroll away. Great shopping, and many notable attractions lie right outside your door.
Feels touristy; the crowds can be overwhelming during the summer months. Street noise is an issue.
New Town & Monte Igueldo
The widest range of accommodation options, including some of the best hotels in the city. Access to excellent shopping and lovely beachfront.
Depending on location, it can be a fair distance to the old quarter. Dining options are more limited than in the Parte Vieja.
More local feel than staying in the Parte Vieja; thinner tourist crowds. Good dining and drinking options. Having a great beach in your backyard.
Can be like a long walk to the Parte Vieja and Old Town. Fewer lodging choices.
