Hotel Villa Soro

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

Housed in a beautiful 19th-century ‘British-style’  villa in the lively San Sebastian suburb of Gros, this 25-room hotel set back in gardens is a wonderfully tranquil base for visiting Spain’s foodie city.

It’s within striking distance of the old town – a 20-minute walk or five-minute bike ride away – and the city’s legendary three-Michelin-starred restaurant Arzak is a few minutes’ stroll.

Hardwood floors, oak panelling, antiques and blazing log fires make it cosy all year round, and the free garage parking is a rare bonus in San Sebastian.

Enjoy breakfast on fine china or a snack and glass of Rioja in the bar or on the terrace, and there are free bikes to borrow for exploring.

If you have kids in tow or a car to park – or simply want to avoid the bustle – this hideaway feels apart from, but still connected to, the city.
