Pros
  • You'll be in the very center of San Sebastián, with a prime location two blocks from the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, an eight-minute walk from Concha Beach, and just 15 minutes from Konstituzio Plaza in the Old Town.
  • The hotel offers exclusive services, including a complimentary Basque product tasting upon arrival.
  • You can enjoy free drinks at the hotel's coffee corner and relax in the lobby lounge.
  • For breakfast, you'll find an extensive buffet with natural fruit juices, hot à la carte dishes, and gluten-free options upon request.
Cons
  • The triple room is a decent option for small groups or families, but it feels a bit cramped, especially with an extra bed in the room.

Authenticity

Arrizul Catedral Hotel embraces the local culture of San Sebastián from your arrival. As a welcome gift during the summer, you'll be treated to a free tasting of typical Basque products, such as txakoli (white wine), cider, Idiazabal cheese, and gildas, known as the very first pintxo and made with olives, pickles, and anchovies. 

Location

You'll be right in the city center, on a busy tree-lined street just a couple of blocks from the Good Shepherd of San Sebastián Cathedral. After just a little over five minutes, you'll reach the breathtaking La Concha Beach. Walking to the Old Town takes a little longer, about 15 minutes, but you can do so via the riverfront promenade that's about one block from the hotel.

Arrizul Catedral Hotel offers various rooms, including single and double units, triple rooms, and spacious suites. All come equipped with flat-screen TVs, high-speed WiFi, a minibar, complimentary drinks, and toiletries.
