San Sebastian is well equipped for tourists, with a wide range of hotels and accommodation to cater to all tastes.
The price of hotels in San Sebastian increases greatly during high season, so if you’re thinking of visiting during the summer we recommend booking well in advance.
When choosing a hotel, location is the key, as it means you’re not dependant on public transport, and most of the main attractions are within walking distance. Hotels in central San Sebastian aren’t cheap but it’s well worth choosing one in a good location.
