Recommended place to stay:
San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain|www.hotelniza.com|
Official star rating:
This hotel, set right beside northern Spain’s most fashionable beach, is a reasonably-priced, family-run treasure in San Sebastian, near enough to the sea to hear the waves.
The key here is simple grandmotherly charm, down to the old-fashioned lift: the rooms are bright, and nearly half enjoy a spectacular view over La Concha bay, on a lively, bustling seafront promenade lined with swanky shops and bars.
The bar-restaurant has a convivial waterfront terrace, where delicious breakfasts are served each morning.
There’s a small garage that fills up fast; if you’re driving, it’s essential to book a spot and finding parking anywhere nearby is tough.
Niza is an easy walk to the city’s main sights and renowned pintxo bars, and guests can borrow bikes if they want to go any further.
