Hotel Overview

Discover the most emblematic hotel in San Sebastian, the majestic Maria Cristina, located in the heart of the city and a few meters away from the Urumea river and the sea. With 136 spacious rooms and suites designed with Belle Epoque style, this is the ideal place to experience an unforgettable stay in a charming environment in San Sebastian.

This impressive stately stone mansion stands on the banks of the River Urumea opposite the Cubos de Moneo. Drive through the majestic entrance and you're surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens. It's first choice for the stars that come to participate in the annual Film Festival and Jazz Festival. The interior was totally refurbished in 1987 and the bedrooms have been tastefully decorated with colorful rugs, paintings and comfortable armchairs. Abundant natural light floods through the large windows and there are always fresh flowers on display. Some bedrooms also have balconies.


The Hotel Maria Cristina offers 136 spacious guestrooms and suites await you, all featuring Westin's signature Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath. Savour classic Basque cuisine, creative seasonal dishes and an extensive selection of Spanish wines at Easo, one of San Sebastian's finest restaurants. From winter's cider cellar dinners to September's regattas, the elegant city of San Sebastian is devoted to the good life. Experience it in Belle Epoque luxury at the Hotel Maria Cristina. The property has an unbeatable location along with the most attractive architecture and the best reputation of any hotel in town.


Looking out over the Urumea River and Victoria Eugenia Theater, Hotel Maria Cristina's restaurant outlets offer top-tier service in an enchanting atmosphere. Around the town, the colorful flavors of Basque cuisine waft through the stone streets. In reverence to the region's fresh flavors, restaurants combine their seasonal á la carte menus, crafted according to daily market produce, with classic fresh fish and meat dishes.
