Very nice hotel. Perfect location within easy walking distance of the town. Took the corner suite which was well appointed with separate lounge area overlooking the sea and river. Two balconies from which you have to stand to see. Staff efficient and polite. Nice looking outside seating area named ‘the secret garden’. Did not use due to weather but seems perfect do a summer seat. The Dry Bar was nice but very slow service. Cafe Saigon, great, Ezcaray awful. Breakfast, excellent. Nice clean and efficient hotel.

One of the best hotels in the world, attentive, spacious rooms, very well kept and situated. Wonderful breakfast, bar and fine restaurants. A place to stay and enjoy. Very nice servjce of concierge. Not to miss!

I can't say enough great things about this hotel! First and foremost, the hotel is in the best location in San Sebastian. The hotel is in the center of town and right next to Old Town. It is housed in a gorgeous old building that has beautiful views of San Sebastian. Our room was gorgeous as well. Huge room with a very comfortable bed (hard to find in Europe) and great toiletries. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating as well. Great breakfast buffet too! Definitely stay here if you can when traveling to San Sebastian!!

Superlative property in an excellent location with just wonderful staff full of hospitality and grace - right from the parking staff, reception, conceirge to the smiling ladies at the bar and the staff during breakfast This is 5*L levels of comfort, beauty and elegance from a prior era. Matched only (my humble opinion) by properties like Crillion in Paris or The Park Horel Vitznau Can’t recommend more highly and congratulations to the management and staff for maintaining such exceptional standards

Each Staff member was pleasant and accommodating. Our Room gave us a view of the Atlantic as it swept inshore. Plenty of space in the room. Like the idea of the toilet and bidet room separate to the bath/shower room. Each time we ate was an enjoyable experience. We had some great nights at the bar. What will stick with me is how helpful the Staff were at all times.

This is a magnificent hotel, everything about this hotel is perfect and makes for a memorable stay. It's right there in the heart of town, a few blocks from the ocean, everywhere is a short walk from the door of this hotel. The Breakfasts were amazing as were the staff. We spent some time in the bar as we do, that was one of our best experiences, all of the staff here are highly professional and make wonderful cocktails. Good food too. We loved our stay here and would recommend this luxury collection hotel to anyone travelling to San Sebastian.

Great location, room and beautiful building. Some criticisms: I informed the hotel in advance about arrival time, unfortunately the room was not ready, during busy breakfast you have to wait quite long to get a coffee and finally cappuccino wasn’t good. Coming back to good things: very nice and professional staff in the reception and great concierge.

Hotel Maria Cristina is a great old school luxury hotel in a beautiful location. The staff are very nice and helpful and the rooms are lovely and pretty spacious. While it is an expensive hotel, the service, location and quality of the hotel makes it worth it. As it is a part of the Marriott Bonvoy program, it is a great place to use your points and get real value.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful rooms which are quite large and well appointed. Fantastic bed. Public areas are very sophisticated and elegant. Dry Bar is very cool to go to before heading out for dinner. We had a room facing the river and it was gorgeous. Location couldn’t be better. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have bicycles that you can use. Reserve with concierge. Highly recommend! Just an awesome hotel!

Elegant, renovated, superb, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. One of the Best hotels in Spain, by far the best hotel in north Spain, don't stay anywhere else. Location is wonderful and service well above European average
