Luxurious Basque getaway to a historic Belle Epoque palace with river views in San Sebastian's old town – includes all travel, breakfast and welcome cocktail

Named after the Spanish queen who was the property's first visitor in 1912, Hotel Maria Cristiana is a true San Sebastian stalwart. Having received a lavish facelift for its centenary, this exquisite 19th-century palace effortlessly marries the old with the new, blending original elements including a stained-glass ceiling and swish marble floors with more contemporary design touches and state-of-the-art facilities. Its regal prowess and high-end concierge service mean that it continues to draw in an A-list crowd, acting as the main playground for travelling VIPs during the city's world-renowned International Film Festival.

Rooms are a picture of stately elegance, combining sensational river views and Belle Epoque charm with five-star amenities. The refined ambiance continues in the two equally magnificent restaurants, where you can enjoy both tapas and dim sum thanks to the imaginative menus that fuse traditional Basque country flavours with more unconventional tastes from the East. With all this in mind, it's easy to see why this city icon was voted as one of Spain's top luxury hotels in the 2018 TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice Awards.
