Maria Cristina, San Sebastian

The historic city of San Sebastian is home to one of Spain’s most luxurious properties; Maria Cristina. Grand and elegant in style, this charming palace provides the perfect base to explore the cultural city and it’s rich heritage. Hosting stars and public figures, Maria Cristina prides itself on luxury hospitality and fine gastronomy.


Standing proud in front of the Urumea River in between La Concha and La Zurriola, the Maria Cristina is surrounded by beautiful gardens and promenades which make for a picturesque city break. Visit the nearby San Telmo Museum for a dose of artistic education, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre square or hit the beach for a relaxing afternoon.

Your Room

Rooms and suites provide a peaceful atmosphere after a day wondering Spanish streets. Sparkling crystal drop chandeliers and the glass-enclosed rainforest showers contribute to the rooms gracious setting. The truly luxurious Royal suites boast all the amenities of other guestrooms but with added extras including a Bang & Olufsen sound system, plush velvet armchairs and an expansive terrace.

Why we like it

Grand décor and exquisite guestrooms aside, the hotel’s charm is enveloped in the incredible gastronomic paradise that is San Sebastian. With 16 Michelin starred restaurants across this enchanting city, prepare your palette for a mix of the world’s most divine dishes and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at the Dry Bar, home to the best Martinis in the Basque region.
